Funamo Parental Control Features
Funamo's patent-pending web filtering technology blocks pornography web sites on your Nook HD/HD+ devices.
Allow additional control by specifying web site blacklist and whitelist. For example, it can be used to block out social network sites such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter.
Support whitelist-only mode which limits the web access to a pre-defined list of web sites.
Force SafeSearch for all leading search engines including Google, Bing and Yahoo.
Allow keyword/phrase filtering. Users can specify keywords or phrases, and web pages containing any of the keywords/phrases will be blocked by Funamo.
Parents can view and change settings remotely from any browser (Note: push/sync from the web is not supported for Nook HD/HD+ devices. All settings and history data are synced each night or you can do a manual sync from you Nook HD/HD+ device.)
Log history of all web site visited and application launched.
Location tracking is not supported for Nook HD/HD+ devices since they do not have GPS function.
All history data are uploaded to the server each night or can be manually synced from the device.
Support the option to synchronize contacts stored on the device to Funamo server.
Allow individual switches to turn on/off the history logging for web visits and applications.
Protected applications are always protected by a password. This is to safeguard applications so the user can't access. Settings and Nook store are protected by default.
Set time limit for applications such as games, media player, etc. Applications will only be available during selected time slots or require a password to unlock the applications.
Set daily time allowances for selected applications. Allow different time allowance for weekdays and weekends.
The Application quarantine feature automatically puts any newly downloaded apps in the protected app list.
