Parental Control Certification Test 2024

AV-Comparatives provides certification for parental control software. In order to be certified, a product must block at least 98% of pornographic websites (beginning in 2025 the threshold will be lowered to 95%), have zero false alarms on child-friendly websites, and have no severe unresolved bugs (or design flaws) discovered during the review. A certification is valid for one year and vendors can apply for certification once a year. AV-Comparatives’ Parental Control Test is very challenging, meaning that any product passing the test has reached a very high standard. In 2024 only one parental control solution achieved the certification level.
