Yes, one more novelty from Google Corporation - the company's developers are constantly trying to create new products, most of which are becoming popular (of course, there is a fiasco like Google Wave, but not so often, agree). So, the Family Safety Center
, launched by the corporation to work the other day, is designed to inform people about the various dangers that may lie in wait for you on the Net. This is a truly "family" product that is designed for all ages.
In the Family Safety Center you can find a variety of information about malware, about controlling access to a PC and the method of its introduction, about vulnerabilities of various software and so on. In general, this is a kind of database on security, which is designed for not very trained people.
“Family” product is named because according to the developers, parents will be able to create reliable control systems for children working on PCs, in particular, on the Web. In addition, the “Family Safety Center” can provide information about “parental” filters that can protect a child from unwanted information, in large quantities available on the Web. Especially in the "Center" information about how parents can protect their minor children from all these threats.
By the way, there is also less frightening information, which describes how to best organize the workplace for your child. There is even information on setting up search engines - after all, it is not a secret that a large number of users simply do not know how to properly use search services. As you know, Google has features such as SafeSearch at Google, SafeSearch Lock - the “Center” tells about how to configure such functions.
Most likely, Google has created its product as a competitive service for Microsoft Live Family Safety and Security Essentials. It may well be that some of the features mentioned in the Family Safety Center will be available on Google’s OS if it does appear.
But the main purpose of the Family Safety Center is to provide all the information necessary for the protection of their children to parents and teachers of children. Let's hope that this information is really useful. Unfortunately, there is no information in Russian yet, so only English-speaking users of the Network can rejoice.
