How do I protect my children from online threats with Bitdefender 2012?

Bitdefender Parental Control allows you to restrict access to Internet and to specific applications, preventing your children from viewing inappropriate content whenever you are not around.

You can configure Parental Control to block:

  • inappropriate web pages.
  • internet access, for specific periods of time (such as when it's time for lessons).
  • web pages, e-mail messages and instant messages if they contain specific keywords.
  • applications like games, chat, file sharing programs or others.
  • instant messages sent by IM contacts other than those allowed.

To configure the Parental Control, follow these steps:

  1. Create limited (standard) Windows user accounts for your children to use. For more information, please refer to "How do I create Windows user accounts?" .
  2. Make sure you are logged on to the computer with an administrator account. Only users with administrative rights on the system (system administrators) can access and configure Parental Control.
  3. Configure Parental Control for the Windows user accounts your children use.
    1. Open the Bitdefender window.
    2. Go to the Parental panel.
    3. Click Manage Accounts and make sure parental control is turned on for your child's user account.
    4. Set your child's age by clicking one of the boxes corresponding to the Age option. Setting the age of the child will automatically load settings considered appropriate for that age category, based on child development standards.
    5. If you want to configure the Parental Control settings in detail, click Settings.
