Have you used these easy and effective Quick Heal Parental Control tools?
November 16, 2012

Parents of school going kids have several questions when it comes to cyber security. Some of these issues involve the freedom and time that should be given to kids when they access the Internet. Other questions revolve around the mode of access in the first place. Today it is very common to see pre-teens with top of the line smartphones that provide instant web access but is this a good idea?

Parenting children and enabling them to understand the importance of cyber security and safety measures is something that needs to be handled responsibly. Several factors come into play here; some can be controlled whereas some cannot. Fortunately, there are many tools that can efficiently be utilized to achieve this purpose. One of these tools is the Parental Control feature of Quick Heal products and this empowers you to control your child’s exposure to the underlying dangers of the web.

Many parents of school going children are not even aware of the versatile Parental Control features on offer. In order to customize these controls, one needs to click on the Parental Control icon in the Quick Heal dashboard. These settings can be applied to all users of a machine or can be restricted to specific users as well. Here are the prominent customizations offered by Parental Control.

Quick Heal Parental Control

Restrict access to particular categories of websites
This feature allows you to block specific website categories and all the URLs that come under them. This prevents your child from visiting unwanted websites. For instance, categories like Adult, Child Abuse, Crime and Violence, Pornography etc. can be blocked completely.

Restrict access to particular website
With this feature, any known website can be blocked completely. The URL needs to be added to a list of blocked websites and this prevents the URL from opening at any time. Moreover, all subdomains of a website can also be added to the blocked list through this feature.

Schedule Internet access
This versatile feature allows you to create a weekly schedule for Internet access. If any website is visited in a time outside the schedule, it will simply be blocked. The schedule can be set on an hourly basis for any day of the week and it is entirely up to you to decide how many hours on which day Internet access will be allowed.

Parental Control schedule

Responsible parenting recognizes that there is a right time for children to own gadgets and to get complete and unsupervised access to the Internet. Of course, it lies in the hands of parents themselves to decide the most suitable time for this and to also ensure that the best virus protection software is enabled. Quick Heal Parental Control features are present for the benefit of those who wish to utilize them. With the right awareness and usage of appropriate tools, children can be protected from several emerging cyber threats.

    It is good. But any one can go to Blocked Websites list and remove the website. And moreover anyone can edit the time for access to internet.

  3. quickheal parental control feature is very good, but this feature should be password protected as today’s children know about enabling/disabling of the feature.

    • Hi CSG,
      While I do not have any kids myself, this post has been written under the guidance of people who are responsible parents to teenagers. They have been suitably consulted for this information and you can rest assured that the Parental Control feature is suitable and useful for those who wish to utilize it.

    When I use sheduled internet access,it asked me for the date & time to be blocked but I can’t just block it.Can u help me?

    Reply
    • Hi Nishant,
      There are 2 options above the date and time screen. Ensure that the box next to ‘Allow access to the Internet as per the schedule’ is CHECKED. And that the box next to ‘Always allow access to the Internet’ is NOT CHECKED.
      Regards.

  21. I understood that this feature works based on the System Time. So in case if my system date n time doesnt work, what will happen then?

        If there is some problem with my system date and time and some how date and time is changed. here how will parental control (Timely Internet Access) works.

        Reply
        • Hi Bala,
          The system date and time is controlled over the cloud on Quick Heal servers. So even if the date and time is accidentally or intentionally changed it will not affect the feature.
          Regards.

    • Hi Bala,

      Quick Heal Parental Control is cloud based feature so you don’t have to bother even if your system date/time is incorrect.

  25. Hello, Parental Care Option with Password Protection is not working effectively & Properly. It blocks the sites while openning and suggests for permission from parents but sites can be opened when clicked. Hence seems ineffective in restricting sites…

  26. KrishnakumarNovember 21, 2012 at 4:39 PM

    Tried in my own PC, but ON/OFF can be done by anybody, no password asked. But if you click “parent control” or “settings”, password is needed to proceed. Tried in 2012 and 2013 versions.

  46. my laptop has been installed with quick heal endpoint security 15.0 when i was working in my office but now i have left that job but still that password remains, i m not able to uninstall or modify it, as it requires a password for any operation to be done..does not even allows safe mode of OS.

    please help me to uninstall it as my old organisation is not keen on providing any password to me. I do not want to format my system.

    please help..

    Reply
    • Hi,

      We recommend that you share the situation with your previous organization and request them for this password. Since your laptop does not operate within the company’s jurisdiction anymore, they should be more than happy to share the password with you so that you can uninstall the software. We hope that helps.

      Best regards.
