Default Parents Free software shields families

Parents Free software shields families of offensive material on the net.

Free Software Downloads of filter software for your computer in Australia.

PARENTS will be given free software that prevents their children viewing internet pornography and other offensive material on home computers under a $117 million commonwealth crackdown on cyber smut.

The three-year National Filter Scheme, announced by Communications Minister Helen Coonan yesterday, will also include the rollout of "child-friendly" filtering programs to all internet terminals in libraries across Australia.

The filter software will be able to be downloaded from internet service providers' websites or posted out as a CD to parents who call a 1800 hotline.
