Computer kids will find themselves locked out of X-rated internet sites thanks to American developed software Rated-PG. And if it's time to do homework, they won't be able to play their favourite computer game either.
Exousia Christian Software is using the Scottish Christian Resources Exhibition 19-21 September as a launch pad for Rated-PG software.
Rated-PG lets parents control which sites children can access on the net in two ways. Parents can allow access to sites they have approved, or restrict access to X-Rated sites.
Exousia believes Rated-PG is the only software of its type currently available. While others restrict internet access, Rated-PG can limit games and playtime, secure confidential files and monitor online usage.
"Our MD went to the States specifically with this in mind," said Graham Herbert, marketing director at Exousia. "It's rated over there as being a very hot product."
He added that even if a child did manage to break the software code after some time, Rated-PG would still provide an online report.
"With the prolific growth of the internet set to continue at an explosive rate we felt that there had to be a solution that would stop even the brightest child from accessing inappropriate sites. It ensures that children do not wittingly get access to material that parents would deem inappropriate or harmful to their children's upbringing," said Exousia MD Savah Munir.
Rated-PG is priced at u49.99 and is Windows 95 and Windows 3.1 compatible.
PC World will be test marketing Exousia software from the end of this month.
