Nanny - a parental control in Linux Mint


Nanny is a parental control in Linux Mint

Nanny is an easy way to control what your kids are doing in the computer. You can limit how much time a day each one of them is browsing the web, chatting or doing email. You can also decide at which times of the day they can do these things. Gnome Nanny filters what web pages are seen by each user, so you can block all undesirable webs and have your kids enjoy the internet with ease of mind, no more worries!

The application "Nanny" was created by GNOME developers specifically to oversee the work on the computer your children/child.


- Control which web sites are allowed or not allowed to visit the child.
- What time of the week and how long the child may:
  to use a computer
  to view the web page
  to use email
  to use instant messaging/chat rooms


The administration console Nanny consists of two sections. Users are listed in the left column, and actions are divided into tabs at the top of the window:
