The most famous: Norton Family Premier
Norton is still one of the pioneers of computer protection; therefore a guarantee of quality! This version runs on Windows and Android.

Kid’s Shell, for tablets and smartphones
Specifically designed for mobile devices and young user habits, Kid’s Shell is very easy to setup and allows you to restrict the list of apps that you want your children to have access to.

The most versatile: Kaspersky Safe Kids
Its free version is a traditional multi-device (computer, phone, tablet, on iOS or Android) parental control software: it allows you to set up filters, control and limit time spent on the device… The paid version (14,99 €/year) provides more options, such as broader monitoring features for your children’s Facebook activity, and a geolocation feature.
The most innovative: Xooloo Digital Coach
Dedicated to teenagers, this app works as an actual coach whose duty is to make your children more responsible and walk them through their digital experience. Its sister-app Xooloo Parent allows you to view the information provided to your children as well: time spent on each app, respect (or not!) of the rules that you defined… If your children come too close to the limit, the “coach” subtly reminds them of the restrictions. To summarize, this tool encourages your teenagers’ digital independence and provides security! Available on Google Play.
