Staffordshire, United Kingdom, October 25, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Akumenta, a Staffordshire (UK) based digital media enterprise, have announced the official launch of a new and unique global internet safety tool named "SafeSearchLock."
This straightforward Windows software instantly and automatically enforces and Locks on the strictest family filters and safe search features for popular web sites including Google, Bing, YouTube, Yahoo, Flickr, Ask Jeeves, Dailymotion, DuckDuckGo and many more. Crucially for parents this means that unsavoury, adult or explicit search results, images and videos from these sites can be effortlessly blocked at the source. This collective protection can be activated or disabled in an instant, but only by using a convenient and secure personal password chosen by a parent or administrator. A further key feature is that SafeSearchLock can be set to automatically start with Windows, so that it permanently protects all users on a computer.
With a target audience of parents and children, Akumenta were mindful that the application needed to be easy to install and effortless to use, performing automatically without the need for user intervention. It also needed to be secure, preventing older and more knowledgeable children from circumventing the provided protection no matter what modern Web browser they use.
Speaking about the product Neil King, lead developer said, "After months of development, testing and improvements based on user feedback, SafeSearchLock is now available to the public and is already being used all over the world including the UK, US, Australia, Canada, Indonesia and Cyprus.
"The whole idea is to make safe searching the new web standard, conveniently providing parents with a little peace of mind and children with a little online freedom. We are extremely proud to be behind such a progressive and clear-cut child safety initiative."
A free, fully functional trial version is available to ensure users are happy with it before registering. Unlimited use for the lifetime of the product is then available by purchasing a registration key for only £2 (2 UK pounds).
