Qustodio develops leading parental control software solutions for families worldwide. Our solutions empower parents to have greater visibility into all of their kids’ online activity, including social networks. Our revolutionary approach to information provides actionable intelligence for parents, enabling parents to make quick decisions and take control.
Qustodio grows out of our experience developing consumer security software for major organizations worldwide, and we are just as serious about helping you protect your kids as we have been about helping to build rock-solid security solutions.
What do we do
We combine our experience and understanding of consumer internet security to address the concerns of parents who want to protect their children to develop and improve Qustodio. We are eager for parents worldwide to have this tool. The fully-featured version, Qustodio Premium, is priced at just $49.95 a year. We also make the core software available for no charge as Qustodio Free.
Qustodio is already available in six languages - English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portuguese. Qustodio can monitor any of the one billion-plus PCs running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, and Macs running Lion 10.7 or 10.8, or Mavericks 10.9. Support for more languages and more devices is in the works.
How we do it
We emphasize two things to help you help your kids. The first area we emphasize is ease of use. Qustodio has a small footprint and can even be installed invisibly on the PCs it protects, even as it keeps objectionable content at bay. At the same time, the browser-based management and reporting capability is available to you on many devices, making it easy for you to help protect your kids.
The second thing we emphasize in our work is information management. Your kids’ use of a PC and the Internet generates thousands of conversations and lists of things like internet history, even in a brief session. Today’s parents don’t have time to be reviewing every single detail of what kids do online. This is where Qustodio comes in to summarize usage and note exceptional activities in an easy to use online dashboard.
With this core in place, we can add new features to meet new challenges. We combine multiple devices and multiple kid users into a single reporting dashboard. We monitor social networks and protect against inappropriate and illegal content. We support time limits on device use. And, in Qustodio Premium, we help you block games and unwanted applications.
There's also a third area of emphasis - valuing the role of parents. We energetically seek, and always welcome feedback. We at Qustodio are your partners in protecting your kids.
Why we do it
We are passionate about Internet security for children, and we love creating and improving products. We think there is a lot of room for an up-to-date parental control solution that is relevant and designed from the ground up for ease of use. We want to work with you to make the Internet a safe and enjoyable place for your kids.
