Net Nanny for Android


The original, award-winning Net Nanny™ parental controls is now available for Android. Give your child the freedom to surf the Internet without the fear of inappropriate content. Net Nanny is a custom mobile browser that becomes your child’s default browser. Net Nanny can also manage which apps your child can or cannot use on their mobile device. Manage your child’s settings and devices, view reports, add users and much more from the web-based console. Simply follow the installation instructions and create a user profile for your child on his or her device. Use one of the pre-defined age-based user profiles or customize settings to include categories you create or specific sites you wish to block or allow.

FREE 14-DAY TRIAL
A fully functional free trial protects your Android device for 14 days. Afterward, an annual subscription is available for US$12.99 for one device (Discounts available for multiple devices).

APPLICATION MANAGEMENT
Net Nanny shows which apps are installed on the protected mobile device. Parents can block unwanted apps, see when new apps are installed, and even prevent new apps from running until approved.

AGE-APPROPRIATE FILTERING
Choose from among four pre-defined, age-appropriate user profiles for your filter settings: Child (ages 7 and under), Pre-teen (ages 8-12), Teen (ages 13-17), Adult, or customize your own settings.

18 FILTERING CATEGORIES
Each category can be configured to Block, Warn or Allow access to a page containing content in that category. Parents can also create their own custom categories.

STRICT SAFE SEARCH ENFORCEMENT
Net Nanny enforces the strictest safe search setting on all popular search engines.

ANTI-CIRCUMVENTION
Once installed, kids must use the Net Nanny browser. Other browsers cannot launch. Administrator credentials are required to uninstall the app. Net Nanny also prevents most common task killers and app managers from stopping or uninstalling the app. SSL proxy sites are filtered. Strong uninstall and anti-circumvention tools ensure your child is always protected.

REAL TIME CONTEXTUAL ANALYSIS
Net Nanny categorizes web pages in real time, including brand-new web sites and sites with user-generated content, such as comments or posts. With over 150,000 new web pages each day, traditional list-based filters cannot adequately protect your family.

SSL FILTERING
Filter HTTPS sites using real time contextual analysis

PROFANITY MASKING
Swear words are replaced with characters (@#$%) so web pages with otherwise-appropriate content can still be viewed.

REMOTE WEB-BASED MANAGEMENT
Administrators can manage any number of users and devices from a web-based console. Log in at admin.netnanny.com to manage your family’s settings and account. Setting changes are reflected on the device in under a minute. You can also manage your Net Nanny for Windows or Mac users from the same console and the user and family settings will work across all three products.

TIME CONTROLS (WEB BROWSING)
Set when and how long (per day or per week) that your child will be allowed to browse the internet using their protected Android device.

CUSTOM WHITELIST AND BLACKLIST
Create custom lists for sites that should always be allowed (whitelist) or always be blocked (blacklist). Parents can also permanently override a blocked site on the device.

WIFI AND 3G/4G/LTE PROTECTION
Your child’s mobile device is protected no matter what network they are using.

MOZILLA-BASED BROWSER

Hate it Doesn't work oh the filter I'd great but it has other problems for instance I want to get on the Facebook page when I do it says that I have used my time limit of 2 hours and 15 minutes when I asked my dad he said that he did not put on that command and I asked for him to fix it but it is still having problems so I tell you to save your money and find something else!

Unable to install All it will say is that it is unable to connect to the server. Internet access is fine, but this app doesn't work.

Worthless I can't believe NN put their name on this piece of junk. We use NN on our family PC and it works perfectly. NN on an Android device (Samsung S4, 4.4.2) doesn't work at all. You can simply open Chrome or Google Search (which you CAN'T get rid of because Android) and nothing is filtered or blocked. NN claims it locks out other browsers, but there's no evidence of that whatsoever. What's really amazing is that when you LEAVE those browsers, you get a NN screen that says what you just did or looked at was "Blocked by Net Nanny." How absurd! VERY disappointed. I understand if "Joe's Android Apps and Bait Emporium" can't get it right, but Net Nanny?? We can play with remote-control ATVs on Mars, but apparently no one can build truly functional parental control software for cell phones. Why is there no "zero stars" rating?
