Today is Safer Internet Day, organized each year by the Insafe network to promote safer and more responsible use of online and mobile technology by kids and young adults.
It’s important to teach kids about cyberbullying, oversharing, and practicing good security hygiene (like choosing better passwords, locking smartphones, and avoiding risky websites, emails, messages or texts).
Sophos Home is an easy-to-use free tool that allows you to manage the security of up to 10 PCs and Macs from any web browser. It’s built upon the same security technology that protects millions of Sophos commercial customers, but it’s designed with home users in mind.
Protecting your family and friends is as easy as 1-2-3: just sign up for an account, download Sophos Home on your own computer, and send a link from the dashboard to anyone whose computer security you want to manage.
Once they download Sophos Home, your family and friends’ computers are linked to your Sophos Home account and you can manage their security from the Sophos Home Dashboard.
Sophos Home automatically protects you and your family against viruses, phishing websites and malicious downloads. You’ll get an alert in the dashboard about cleaned-up threats, blocked websites, and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
There’s another feature of Sophos Home that’s great for protecting the kids – built-in web filtering allows you to block inappropriate websites in categories that you choose, such as adult websites, gambling, drugs or violent content.
And unlike other home-use security software, we’ll never nag you to upgrade to a paid version or sell your data to third parties.
Visit sophos.com/home to get signed up, and start protecting the whole family.
