Technology has greatly impacted our lives, changing everything from the way we communicate to the way we learn. Children have an entirely different relationship with technology: when they are little, they see it as fun, something to play with. Growing up, the relationship changes as technology becomes a learning tool. Whether it is in class, with interactive lessons or researching a subject, technology and especially the internet becomes a source of information.
Still, not all internet content is good for your children. Purepages is the only Internet service provider in the nation that offers proxy-free, server-based filtering to keep inappropriate content away from your children, whether at school or at home. Thus, there is one matter less for you to worry about while your children go about exploring and learning how to use the Internet.

We also offer education-ready wireless platforms with centralized security and management, giving educators and students the tools they need to stay productive and connected, for teaching and learning.
One of the latest computer viruses has been created by Child Pornographers, the mission, to frame YOU!
Child pornographers have recently started a new virus that they send into your computer, via email attachments, pop-ups etc and they can make it appear as though you are surfing child pornography! Oh and one more thing, you may not even know until the police is knocking at your door!
Innocent people have had their reputations lost in this “scam”. In such accusations they get fired from their job, receive hate mail, have their tires slashed and become out-casted in their own neighbourhoods. People have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove their innocence. But not everyone has this much money… In one case, a virus changed the home page on a man’s web browser to display child porn, a discovery made by his seven-year-old daughter. The man spent more than a week in jail and three months in a halfway house, and lost custody of his daughter.
The motivation behind these pornographers doing this, is so that they can say that they also had a virus… “It wasn’t me” or the “Dog ate my homework” type of mentality… Police Departments are not being very lenient on people with the reason of a virus, because sometimes it was you or the dog really did eat the homework and there is no way to determine otherwise.
This could happen to anyone. What can be done to prevent it? Have some filtering methods in place. A few months ago, I would have said that it’s great for when you have kids, but with these types of scams out there, it is a better idea for everyone to have.
With PurePages Internet, your Internet itself is filtered, there are no extra software’s to upload. If something like this happened, you would not be able to access these sites because of our filtering systems. It’s a winning solution.
