Web Guard

Web Guard allows kids to explore the Web in a friendly way that permits them to only see appropriate content for their age group. Enter your child’s age to have ESET Parental Control for Android automatically define which website categories will be available when your child is browsing the internet. For example, gambling and pornography content is blocked by default.

There are three pre-defined options based on the age of your child. Each option marks several website categories as appropriate icon_unlimited or inappropriate icon_blocked. Parents can also modify these settings to permit or restrict access to any listed category. The initial setup is configured based on the age of the selected child.

If your child is attempting to visit a restricted web page, they can request permission to access the content. When permission is granted by the parent, an exception is automatically created in Web Guard to allow that content. The exception is only created for the specific web page your child requested access to. Exceptions for specific websites can also be created through Web Guard Reports. This is accessible through the Reports option in the menu three_dots_menu or from the browsing history emails sent to parents.

Web Guard is enabled by default and supports the following browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Opera mini, Vewd Browser, Dolphin, Mint, Silk, Microsoft Edge and the Samsung browser.



If you disable blocking for inappropriate websites but keep Web Guard enabled, web monitoring will still be active and inappropriate websites will be shown in Reports -> Web Guard -> Visits to inappropriate websites.
