Download SaferSpace
Blocking MySpace isn’t really something I have to worry about at my house yet. I finally took the plunge and signed up for MySpace just to see what the fuss is about. So far I’m finding it to be just another place to post on the Web, but I haven’t used it much either. As the most popular destination online, there are bound to be MySpace detractors. SaferSpace offers a solution for keeping your kids (or anyone) off the MySpace site by automatically closing any browser window containing a url. Administration allows you to provide access to accounts on a per user basis. If you want to keep you kids off of MySpace, the best thing to do is probably supervise your kids and communicate (the stuff parents should be doing anyway). If that doesn’t work, there’s SaferSpace, which blocks access to MySpace from any computer it’s installed on. If your kid tries to visit MySpace, they get a message saying it’s blocked. Of course there’s no password for the service, so make sure your kids don’t have user access to kill services or the whole concept falls down. The latest version of .NET is required.
