CyberPatrol announced a new, free online web-surfing safety assessment Toolkit that will help parents, educators and small business owners review online surfing habits and help determine what safety measures should be implemented.
Included in the Toolkit is CyberPatrol’s Threat Detector tool, released in Beta at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and now available in full release. It specifically helps parents determine the number and kind of inappropriate and unsafe sites found on a PC that CyberPatrol’s Parental Controls software would block. Unfortunately, Threat Detector works only with Internet Explorer browsers.
Also available in the Toolkit is Website Lookup which enables you to enter a URL to determine how CyberPatrol categorizes the website. You can determine if the site is safe to visit before going there.
