McAfee’s Safe Eyes application receives Mom Award

Application honored for being family-friendlyBy Tucker Harrington

It was recently announced that the McAfee Safe Eyes Mobile application has earned one of the top honors in the Mom's Choice Awards for family-friendly products and programs. The application received the gold award from the Mom's Choice panel of judges.

This application is a filtered browser that allows parents to manage their child's internet use on the iPhone and iPad. It has received a number of recognition awards including honors from The National Parenting Center and PC Magazine.

"These new recognitions for the Safe Eyes Mobile browser reflect growing awareness of the need to protect children from exposure to objectionable Internet material on mobile devices, and particularly on kid-friendly products like the iPhone and iPad," said Shane Kenny, McAfee director of sales and marketing. "It's important to keep browsing safe for younger users, whether they're using the desktop computer in the family room, Mom's new iPad, or the smartphone they got for the holidays."

Not only is this application available on smartphones, but parents can also purchase it on their computers.
