Parental control tools can assist to monitor, restrict, limit and filter what children and young people do and see online. There are many tools available and they all offer different functions. Parental control tools can be used to assist, not replace, ongoing participation, supervision, education and conversation.

To support parents and carers eSafeKids has partnered with Family Zone to offer our followers free Insights. Insights will alert you to risky or inappropriate activity and will let you locate your children’s devices. And most importantly, Insights provides you with access to Family Zone’s team of acclaimed cyber experts, delivering you the practical advice and support you need, exactly when you need it. Insights is not a parental control. It provides no filtering or blocking of content but simply monitors device activity.
