Testimonials

“I’m very glad I find out there is such software. I’ve read many Net Nanny reviews and made the right decision. Now I can let my sons use computer and go online without any worries. Previously, I had to look after them and close spam windows with 18+ ads from time to time. But now I can simply block it all and do my own stuff.”

John M. (Denver, Colorado) 

“I was worried about my daughters spending too much time on Facebook and Instagram. I am not very technical, so I couldn’t follow them appropriately. My husband set up Net Nanny and now we both are happy that out kids won’t find anything bad on the web.”

Melony and Carl L. (Los Angeles, California)

  1. I was surprised by the possibility of allowing the access to the 18+ sites – I thought that parental control apps block such websites automatically and as a result I caught my son watching some creepy videos of crimes. And, to my mind, the price of the app is too high. As for the other features, I am totally satisfied with it.

  2. This app meets all my requirements: I can look through the social media of my kids so I am sure that there are no too personal photos and videos and they do not share their personal information. I don’t like the idea of monitoring GPS location of the children, so the absence of this feature doesn’t bother me.

  3. Good post! I read your blog often and you always post excellent content. I posted this article on Facebook and my followers like it. Thanks for writing this!
