According to Ofcom Report on Internet Safety Measures published in January 2015, there has been a significant increase in access to, ownership of and use of tablet computers by children of all ages since 2013. Many older children also own smartphones (20% of 8-11s and 65% of 12-15s) and among 12-15s, this is the device they would most miss. ESET want to ensure that children of all ages can access the internet more safely, without fear of online threats such as malvertising, phishing and malware.
ESET Parental Control app for Android has been designed to provide parents the confidence to safeguard children on smart devices by giving them protection, user experience and performance through a number of free and premium features. ESET’s next job is to protect families against online threats, so they can enjoy the wealth of information and entertainment available online.
