Browser Sentry is a content filtering software application designed to prevent the viewing of sites which are unsuitable for children and incompatible with daily workplace internet use.
Browser Sentry will help to prevent the users of your computer from accessing obscene sites and gambling sites on the internet. It works by monitoring the titles of the windows as they open, looking for prohibited words. It does not rely on constantly changing blacklists which need continual updating. While it may not catch every page, the great majority will be prevented.
When a word or phrase is detected, Browser Sentry will close all internet pages and set a notice "flag" to alert you to the fact that the filter was triggered. This flag will appear the next time the computer is restarted and will require a password to re-set. In most cases this means a deliberate attempt was made to access a prohibited site. This flagging mechanism is very useful should you wish confront an employee or have a word with a child about their internet activities.
The Demo version available below has an unlimited evaluation period, but requires your browser's home page to be set to the Browser Sentry Safe Start Page (see screenshot). This page uses Google's "Safe Search", which provides an added level of security. This feature is optional in the Registered version.
Browser Sentry is 100% safe, it contains no viruses or spyware, you wont receive spam, nor do we sell your email address to third parties.
