Filtering/Monitoring/Accountability Tools

Enough Is Enough®? recommends using both filtering and monitoring tools together to provide an effective layer of protection.

Filtering Tools: Allow parents to establish a strong defensive mechanism to prevent children from accidentally encountering or intentionally accessing inappropriate sites and content, such as pornography, vulgar language, and hate sites.

Monitoring/Accountability: Allows parents to collect "intelligence" and check up on their child's online activities by tracking a child's website visits, emails, instant messaging, and other Internet behavior.
