AVG Family Safety offers a secure, family-friendly web browser

Internet and mobile security provider AVG has released AVG Family Safety, a new universal iOS web browser designed to help protect children from inappropriate websites and protect users in general from scams, fraud, phishing and other potentially malicious online content. AVG Family Safety operates as a replacement for the iOS Safari web browser, automatically filtering out known malicious websites using data provided by AVG’s LinkScanner technology. Parents can also configure a list of blocked web sites directly within the app or link the app to an AVG Family Safety account for enhanced filtering options and online activity monitoring; when combined with disabling the Safari browser using the iOS built-in Restrictions, AVG Family Safety allows users to provide a safer browsing environment for their children. AVG Family Safety is a universal app requiring iOS 4.3 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
