Internet Accountability Software
Internet accountability is one of the most powerful ways to Keep Pure online.
Combining the power of good relationships with good technology,
it really can change the way you use the web.
How accountability software works
You select someone (or multiple people) you trust to be your ‘Accountability Partner(s)’. Once the software is installed, they will receive detailed reports about how you use the internet and apps on your computer, tablet and mobile devices. If the software is removed, your partner is instantly informed. When trusted friends or mentors are informed about how you use the web, honest conversations can take place. Optional Filters can also add another layer of protection for you.
