Parental Control Software Test 2023 – Only Two Products Got Certified by AV-Comparatives
Protect Your Family – Independent testing lab AV-Comparatives has released the report of its Parental Control Software Test
AV-Comparatives provides certification for parental control software. Amongst other things, the certification process ensures that the software effectively blocks inappropriate content and provides a safe browsing experience for children.
To be certified, a product must meet specific criteria, such as blocking at least 98% of pornographic websites and having zero false alarms on child-friendly websites.
These products have undergone rigorous testing, and their certification is valid for one year. The detailed test results, along with general guidance and information on using parental control software, can be found in the 2023 Parental Control Certification Test report.
A certification is valid for one year and vendors can apply for certification once a year. Several vendors submitted their products for certification in 2023, of which two reached the requirements.
By using certified parental control software, parents can have confidence in the product’s ability to protect their children from unsuitable content online.
