NetNanny now for Macs

ContentWatch's venerable Net Nanny sofware has been a staple in the Windows world for many years. Apple's market share has apparently grown enough for the company to offer its subscription-based Internet filter to Mac users. ContentWatch says Mac use is "up 51 percent in the last year" and it became clear the product needed to be brought to Mac OS X.

Net Nanny "establishes a barrier" around a user's computer that filters out content parents don't want their children to view. The software enhances the parental controls already built into Mac OS X Leopard, providing additional barriers to unwanted content. Net Nanny includes predefined and custom filtering categories, Usage Reports and Time Management controls for monitoring a child's computer use and browser alerts to warn when an attempt has been made to access a blocked site.

Net Nanny for Mac requires OS X 10.2.8 or higher and works with Intel or Power PC Macs. A one-year subscription costs $40.

    Way back when..

    Back when I did WIndows support we used NetNanny. Back in the Win95 days. It actually did a decent job; hope they kept up their good work for the Mac edition.
