Effective at filtering?Does the web filtering software strike a good balance between filtering objectionable material and non object ional - not filter too much? The ability to customize sensitivity of filtering by each individual family member is important as well.

Activity reports ?Parents should be able to see what their individual family member has been doing on the computer. This would include viewing where they have been on the Internet, what has been going on in chat rooms, and activity based on other functions within the Internet filtering application.

Foreign language filtering ?One of the tricks that teenagers have found to bypass Internet filters is to type in the foreign language equivalent of certain keywords. By typing in the French, Spanish, or German versions of the word "sex" or "girl" for example, you can easily bypass many filters to view objectionable content.

Individual profiles ?Can you create a profile for each family member with different filtering rules?

Notification capabilities ?Can you be notified at work or at home that un-authorized access or blocking is occurring?

Negligible response times ?Does the Internet filter allow you to access the Internet without noticeable slowdown?

Remote management ?Can you change settings, change rules, and change profiles from work or while on vacation without the installed software? The correct use of Internet filters in harmony with parental controls can make the Internet a safe and wonderful experience for the family.
