We’ll be doing full reviews in the coming weeks of these products, but for now it might be helpful for people who are looking at potential internet filtering and reporting solutions for their home to check them out. They both look pretty good, but we’ll highlight the pros and cons of each in the full reviews.
OpenDNS Home and Family Shield is a free service that allows you put a constantly updated category based filter for internet traffic on your router or specific devices in your home.
Norton Family Safety is either a free or paid service depending on which features you need (premium features currently going at R400 per year), but looks very interesting. Some features are only available in other countries or on specific devices unfortunately, but we’ll highlight those in the full review as well.
Please leave a comment and let us know if there are any other products of interest we could potentially review.
