Monitor your kids' web activities on all their devices

Kaspersky Safe Kids is a free parental controls system which makes it easy to monitor and manage your kids' Internet activities.

One immediate highlight is that the product works on all your kids' devices: Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone or iPad.

It's also centrally controlled from a single web account, which means there's no need to have repeated access to the device, and you can see and manage what's happening from anywhere in the world.

Initial setup is easy. Provide a name for each of your children, an age, associate it with a user account (on PCs) and you're ready to go.

By default Kaspersky Safe Kids will block access to unsuitable websites, and provide simple reports on what your kids are doing: their device usage time, their most frequently visited websites (with highlights for anything that's been blocked), the apps they're using most often.

You're able to set up limits on usage time by total hours per day (not a schedule in the free version), and either display a warning or block usage entirely if they're online too long.

Safe Kids automatically blocks apps according to their age restrictions, but you can also restrict them by category (though not on the iPhone or iPad).

There's also a range of web tools, including the enabling of Safe Search to block unsuitable websites, and configurable restrictions on websites by category.

Kaspersky Safe Kids Premium is a $14.95/ year commercial version which provides even finer control over your settings, more monitoring tools (location, Facebook activity, Android calls and SMS messages), and gives you real-time alerts and notifications.

Verdict:

Kaspersky Safe Kids Free is simple to set up, runs everywhere, and is controlled from a straightforward web portal. Okay, it's missing a lot of the Premium build's functionality, but there's more than enough here to be useful, and we didn't see any nagging to try and persuade us to upgrade.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
