Trend Micro Online Guardian Features

With Trend Micro Online Guardian, parents have the tools they need to spot a problem before their child gets into trouble. Trend Micro Online Guardian allows parents to:

  • Monitor Internet activities 24/7 on web sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and Flickr.
  • View browsing history, wall postings, messages, photos and videos (shared and viewed), and chat logs to help prevent damage to their reputation.
  • Stop access to adult and other inappropriate content.
  • Limit Internet time and set daily access schedules.
  • Block sharing of personal information to shield kids from online predators, identity thieves and cybercriminals.
  • Install on as many computers as needed and monitor up to five children.

Trend Micro Cyber-safety tips for students, parents, teachers, and caregivers:

  • Think about what you post.
  • Be nice online.
  • Do not retaliate.
  • Report bad behaviours to someone you know.
  • Save the evidence.
  • Don’t participate.

How is Trend Micro Online Guardian Different?

  • Trend Micro Online Guardian requires kids’ permission to allow their parents to monitor them; thus allowing parents to get reporting on non-public information while other products only report public information.
  • Once activated, privacy settings within Facebook and MySpace won’t stop Trend Micro Online Guardian from monitoring activities.
  • Once Trend Micro Online Guardian begins monitoring the child’s account, it reports on activities happening from any location, even those outside of the home (friend’s house, school, cell phone, etc).
  • The online management console allows parents to access the latest information from anywhere in the world.
