Good news for parents of children with an Apple iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad – if they’re using an operating system 5.0 or later, Net Nanny is now available.

Net Nanny for iOS is a customisable safe Internet browser that takes the place of Safari. It has built-in Internet filters that helps protect kids from viewing unsuitable onlilne materials.

"Our goal has always been to protect kids online wherever they access the Internet," said Russ Warner, CEO of Net Nanny.

"Net Nanny iOS provides strong online protection to help prevent kids from viewing online materials that can be unsafe or too mature – ensuring safe Internet surfing."

Parents can choose between three safety settings with Net Nanny iOS:

*  High – to block pornography, nudity, death, gore, abortion, mature, lingerie, swimsuits and mask profanity.

*  Medium – to block pornography and nudity and to warn of content related to death, gore, abortion, mature, lingerie, swimsuits and masks profanity.

*  Low – to block pornography and nudity.

To be effective, Safari and other web browsers should be removed or disabled, and Net Nanny for iOS set as the default web browser. The installation and set-up process can assist with this.

Net Nanny is now available at the iTunes store for what is described as “an introductory price” of $4.99. It is a once-only cost and, unike similar products for computers, does not require an annual subscription.
