Verizon to Offer Free Parental Controls for BB Customers

Verizon has decided to provide free online parental controls to its consumer broadband customers. Among the parental tools that Verizon will soon make available are:

  • A content blocker that will allow parents to prevent children from viewing selected topics on the Internet.

  • Application filters that will allow parents to limit access to applications they do not want their children to use.

  • The ability for parents to designate specific time periods when the Internet or certain functions cannot be used.
