Online Safety for Families
One of the things I care the most about is my kids. I am constantly on the look out for new technology on how to keep them protected from seeing things on the internet that put them in a situation that could have been prevented.
Because let’s face it…there are somethings you can’t un-see once you see them. Why make it easy?!
So I am excited to tell you about this new online safety and security product!
The digital age brings a wealth of information and conveniences, but we cannot ignore the risks it poses for the family. Most children are exposed to the Internet at the age of 6, and 70% of children see inappropriate content by accident.
The average family has 10 Internet-connected devices and counting, creating new security threats and vulnerabilities.
However, the existing parental control tools are too complicated to use and expensive with annual subscriptions.
Gryphon is a powerful yet convenient approach to online safety.
Gryphon combines a high-performance WiFi router and a simple-to-use smartphone app, making it easy for parents to manage the connected home from anywhere. All security features are built directly within the router itself, eliminating the need to install additional apps on your connected devices.
Setting up the Gryphon router takes just three steps and a simple tap with the Gryphon smartphone app. Grant access to specific websites, restrict internet access during various times of the day (such as during sleep and homework), and monitor your connected home devices like thermostats or cameras to prevent hacking. This can be done on your smartphone from anywhere.
The smartphone app even features a social collaboration tool, so you can work together with fellow parents to create a safer Internet for everyone, by recommending and rating specific websites.
So what do I really like about the functions of Gryphon?
- Age Levels – You can specify what ages are played on the internet.
- Bedtimes – Lights and Electronics off at a specific time period.
- Homework – As a homeschooler, sometimes those pesky games get in the way of learning math. 😉
- Pause the Internet – Got supper? Close the internet and eat without electronics!
- Browse the history – Sure it could be used as watchful eye but I’m thinking it might be good to remember what site I used to find that perfect Christmas gift.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
