What is Qustodio parental control and why should I use it?

Posted on |

There are no two ways about it: if you are a parent and your child has access to the internet, you need a parental control.Kids don’t realize that anyone can publish on the internet, that not everyone’s intentions are good… or how quickly viral challenges can become dangerous.

    Qustodio parental control software is compatible with all platforms (Different technological solutions for different operating systems, mean some features may vary depending on the platform. Consult the website for full details)

  • Regular activity reports
    Receive a detailed breakdown of your child’s daily/weekly activity (you decide how frequently you want to be notified).
