IMSafer comes to Mac

IMSafer has announced that its parental control software now supports Mac OS X as well as Microsoft's Windows Vista. The company says chose to release a Mac version due to "overwhelming requests from the IMSafer community" and a desire to support the education computing infrastructure. The Mac version of IMSafer supports all of the major IM platforms including Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, and iChat. The software aims to serve as a proactive tool for parents that uses language analysis to indicate inappropriate online relationships with children, notifying parents within 90 seconds by email about potential trouble whenever the child is engaged in an online chat. Additionally, parents can leave feedback on people who they believe are having inappropriate conversations with their child, thereby allowing IMSafer to warn other program users about potentially inappropriate online relationships. IMSafer requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and the basic service is available for free.
