Qustodio Review

What is the best Internet Filter? Internet Filters are more important now than ever. One of the very first things to make its way to the Internet was pornography and other offensive content. Because pornography companies are privately held, nobody knows for sure how much revenue the porn industry generates. However, estimates range from $5 billion to as much as $97 billion per year, with a social cost much higher than that.

It might be surprising to know that websites displaying porn get more traffic than Amazon, Netflix, and Twitter combined. Every week there are thousands of new porn sites created, with a nearly uncountable number of porn sites today. The best internet filters can block these sites, because this is a problem that is not going away anytime soon.

Cost:

$54.95/year for up to 5 devices

$96.96/year for up to 10 devices

$137.95/year for up to 15 devices

Qustodio software is for families, schools, and businesses. It provides internet filtering protection, time limits, and reporting on user activities. There is a 30-day trial

The administrator can set time limits on every device for how much time on the internet is allowed every day. Location tracking capabilities ensure you can see a map of where your child's Android or iOS device is (iOS only). If a phone call comes through that is on a filtered list, it will be blocked, and you can track who your child calls most often (Android only).

The extended reporting module shows you a full usage history over the past 30 days of activity. Facebook monitoring is available to see which photos are being uploaded, what status updates say, and who their friends are. If apps and games are a problem, you can decide which ones will not be allowed and which can be used and when.

If a child experiences any sort of trouble while away from you, they can tap an "SOS" button on an Android phone that sends a location-based alert. To see who a child texts the most you can see their Android phone contacts list, read the SMS messages they send, and create a list of blocked contacts.

To get support, just click the "Help" link on the website to search by keyword or access categories of typical help topics. To contact the support team about a problem you need to log in and provide the issue information.

To run Qustodio, you'll need 1MB of RAM, 1.6GB of free disk space and a moderately fast CPU. It runs on Windows XP (Service Pack 3) or later and Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9) or later. Qustodio works on all major browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Edge), iOS 9 or later, Android OS 4 or later, and Kindle OS 4.0.3 or later. It does not work on Chromebooks or Windows phones.

One user who reviewed the software after using it stated that the iOS premium version doesn't offer any further functionality than the free version does and that it does not limit how much time a child spends playing non-internet games. On the positive side, another user stated that it is great for moms, especially if they're single or divorced, just for the peace of mind that comes with child tracking capabilities alone. The developer has responded to only a few concerns people have expressed.

Qustodio currently has an unaccredited profile and an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau because of failure to respond to 3 complaints users have filed against them.

We can only rate Qustodio with three stars at this time. Even though the screenshots and reports seem very intuitive and the software looks to be easy to use, the low rating of the iOS app and unanswered complaints at the Better Business Bureau and in iTunes App Store reviews caused us to rate them lower than we otherwise would have.

Fortunately, internet filter programs exist to keep objectionable content away from innocent children. These programs each have a unique way of dealing with this difficult challenge.

There are a number of factors to consider when shopping for an internet filter. Some of these include:

  • Features. Can you only block websites? What about blocking or filtering email, file-sharing services, and chat rooms? Most of all, are they easy to use and difficult for children to circumvent?
  • Support. Look for as much support as you can get: toll-free phone service, chat, and email support taking no longer than 3 days from beginning to resolution.
  • Cost. Look out for services that charge you a fee to answer your questions. Pay attention to the full cost of the software and keep an eye on the number of months or years you're subscribing to.
