    Do you want to protect your children against inappropriate content on the internet – without banning them completely from surfing? The JusProg-Jugendschutzprogramm parental control software serves this purposes. Free, ad-free, without registration and government approved in Germany (KJM).

    Protect your children and install the JusProg parental control

    How the JusProg parental control works

    The JusProg-Jugendschutzprogramm parental control is a free software that you install on your computer with a Windows operating system. There is also a (not officially governmentally recognized) version for smartphones with an Android operating system.

    While your child surfs the internet, the JusProg software checks in the background whether the requested web page is appropriate for the child’s age. If the website is suitable for his age, then it is displayed. If the requested content may not be age-appropriate, a so-called blocking page appears rather than the website.

    When you install the software, enter the age of your child. The age categories are the from 0, from 6, from 12, from 16 years. Regardless from your child’s actual age you yourself can define in which age group your child is surfing – because you know your child and his educational development best.

    Important to know: Until age 12 all web pages unknown to the system are blocked as a precaution. For younger kids the internet space is smaller, but safer. From age 12 all unknown pages are displayed. Your growing child thus has a huge internet space as there is almost no filter installed. But since JusProg can not know all the websites in the world, the level of protection is lower. JusProg preferably filters the sites often called in Germany by minors.

    The JusProg parental control can also manage multiple users on a computer. So you can, for example, specify that a child in the age group “from 6 years” is sometimes surfing and that the older siblings are “from 12 years” in age. The software uses the “Windows User” for the user management which you can easily set up in the Windows operating system.

    You as a parent can surf the internet on the same computer completely without limits. You either define a separate user account with “over 18 years” or “free” or switch off the filtering using the small JusProg icon at the bottom right of the screen (next to the clock).

    Information about data safety

    We take data protection very seriously. Therefore, you and your child can download the JusProg parental control and install and use it continously without registering and without the need to provide personal data.

    JusProg software updates the filter list on your computer once a day. This is downloaded from the server of our partner Cybits AG with its server located in Germany. No personal data will be saved while updating the list.

    When installing the software, you are asked wether you agree to the anonymously transmitted information about the websites used. You can agree (place a tick mark) or refuse (not place a tick mark): in both cases the JusProg parental control is fully usable. However, if you agree, you contribute to improving the JusProg filter quality and indirectly also ensure a higher level of protection of your child because the pages used with the software are checked afterwards by our human Netagents and automated spidering. If your child accidentally or intentionally accessed a webpage that was not age-appropriate, then this site may already be blocked at the next visit. The anonymous information about your surf protocols are stored with us without any personal data, not even your IP address. The statistics are immediately cumulated with the data of different users, so in hindside no personal surf profile can be created, even theoretically.

    The JusProg Child Protect app for Android smartphones, which is offered together with Vodafone works, due to the lower processing power and limited memory capabilities of mobile devices, slightly differently from the JusProg parental control for Windows computers. While surfing the requested internet address (URL) is the JusProg server (server location: Germany) is requested every time a new web page. The domain is transmitted together with an indication of age: in this manner it is tested wether the website is age-appropriate. In so doing no personal information is transmitted. Transmission of the IP address is technically unavoidable, but these will not be saved. Statistics about the webpages are created completely anonymously and immediately combined with queries from other users, so that even in hindsight no personal surf profile more can be created.

    Do you know an internet address that you consider unsuitable for children and adolescents? Or have we provided a web page in the filter list that in your opinion has accidentally been given the wrong age classification? Here you can transmit web pages to the JusProg team for testing.

    The JusProg filter list uses age classification for entire websites, i.e. domains such as www.example.com or games.example.com. Fill them in the form below. If a web page is for most part age-appropriate but has some hidden problematic content, you can also specify a path (URL), for example, www.example.com/subpage.html.

    Please notify us what age you deem appropriate. Our JusProg human Netagents will check the site asap. Please understand that this may take several days.
