 ESET Parental Control

Approved For Android

ESET Parental Control is a parental control software package available for Android. It is installed and managed on the device, or through the cloud. The content filtering must be configured for each device. ESET Parental Control exhibited very good filtering abilities in Weatec testing.

Pros:

  • Free 30-day trial available
  • 35 configurable categories
  • Outstanding content filtering abilities
  • Can also block and monitor app usage
  • Can be used to locate device via GPS

Cons:

  • Not ideal for large businesses since each device filtering needs to be configured separately
  • Uses a VPN connection for data transfer
  • Had an issue using it with the Firefox browser


Note: After testing, ESET Parental Control has been approved as an acceptable category-based content filter if configured to meet the requirements set forth in the Weaverland Conference Electronic Technology Usage Guidelines . Please remember that no filter can be guaranteed to filter out all objectionable content; therefore the Weatec Accountability Software must be installed on all devices in order to be in compliance with Weaverland Conference guidelines. By logging all web traffic, the Weatec Accountability Software fosters brotherhood accountability. Keep in mind that, even if objectionable content is missed by ESET Parental Control, the content will still trigger a flag on the accountability server. Use the following configuration as a minimum; there is nothing preventing you from choosing stricter settings.
