Woburn, MA – September 9, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — According to the Kaspersky Lab 2014 Consumer Security Risks Survey, conducted with B2B International, 21 percent of participants have lost either money or important information as a result of their children’s online activity. However, the results also showed that only 23 percent of surveyed parents use specialized software to regulate their children’s activities online.
The survey found that 12 percent of respondents said their children have accidentally deleted important information, while 6 percent faced unexpected bills from app stores after the youngsters got online. Despite this, a small amount of participating parents are worried: just 32 percent are concerned that their children may spend money online without parental consent, and only 27 percent are worried that their kids share confidential information too freely online
Although, that is not to say parents aren’t doing anything at all to monitor their children’s online activities. For example, 39 percent personally control how their children use devices, and 13 percent asked their Internet provider to block access to certain sites. In addition, 38 percent of parents regularly remind their children about the dangers of the Internet, while 19 percent opted to befriend their children on social networks.
For those parents looking to do more, there is a Parental Control module for Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X included in Kaspersky Internet Security – Multi-Device. It allows parents to control which sites their children visit and which games they play, as well as disallowing file dowloads, blocking access to content on unwanted topics and preventing the disclosure of confidential information. Besides, parents can further improve security by analysing their child’s messages in social networks and instant messengers and/or by specifying unwanted keywords and phrases that should be filtered out. This way, Kaspersky Lab’s technologies help protect finaces and confidential data from cybercriminals, and children from the risks that may lurk in the online environment.
