Sophos provided me with compensation in exchange for this sponsored blog post, however all opinions expressed here are my own.
When it comes to protecting my family, like most parents, I take that job very seriously. For a while now it has been weighing on my mind that I haven’t been taking the proper precautions to keep my family safe during their time using the Internet. Now that my kids are in Elementary school, they are required to use our home computer a lot more often than before. And, while I have always heavily monitored their time behind any kind of screen, I still wasn’t taking all the steps I needed to in order to keep them safe online.
It is not that I didn’t care about their online safety. I was just unsure about the best way to do it, which software I could trust, or which one was the best. It really was something that was keeping me up at night. I would never leave my kids home without supervision where I knew danger was lurking, so why was I giving them access to our computer with a whole world of scary things that they could access to at their fingertips?! Much like we take the proper precautions to send our kids off to ride their bicycles with a helmet, it is also important to take the appropriate steps to keep our families safe on the Internet. I know I would feel horrible if they ran into something inappropriate or dangerous due to my neglect to put in place the proper procautions.
