Netintelligence, which last year won a UK industry award for its web monitoring and paedophile alert ‘Safekeeper’ software, has created Netintelligence Mobile – a world-first handset-based programme allowing parents to set detailed parameters on their children’s phone use.

Mobile phone file sharing hit the headlines last week after Hawick High School head teacher Alan Williamson was the victim of a happy slap assault; the previous week a young footballer appeared in court after filming and distributing mobile phone footage of a 14-year-old having sex at a party.

Phil Worms, director of products and marketing at Netintelligence, said: “We’re at a stage now where mobile phones are edging ever closer to mobile PCs – the capacity to record information of various media then disseminate it becomes greater with every new handset on the market. We need to exert the same levels of protection and control over mobile phones as we do over computers.”

“It’s just a fact that as mobile phone technology becomes more sophisticated people will abuse it, which is why it’s so important – as these recent cases have shown – that parents are able to protect their kids from threats which are now present via mobile phones."
Netintelligence Mobile is installed on the handset via GPRS or PC download, and parents are then able to specify which content is allowed.

Website addresses can be blocked and filtered – i.e. parents can see what sites children are accessing from their phones – and GPRS access can also be blocked and logged by parents.

The software would also benefit from the Netintelligence database of more than 30 million internet files flagged as inappropriate, immediately blocking access to these files.

Phil said: “There’s no slowing down the progress of modern communication, so it’s crucial that we can stay on top of it.

“As well as online predators and widespread distribution of inappropriate content, mobile phones are often used by bullies and parents won’t always find out about threatening text messages. This programme also lets parents log text messages so if their child is being bullied it can be discovered quickly.”

Among the other features of Netintelligence Mobile are call restriction and logging, premium rate blocking, SIM card lock, instant messenger filtering, and anti-virus.

Phil added: “As well as protecting kids from some of the more harmful aspects associated with owning a mobile, Netintelligence Mobile also provides parents with a practical solution for ensuring that their children’s phone top ups are used on legitimate calls rather than being wasted on expensive premium rate numbers.”

The product is currently completing final testing but it is expected that it will be commercially available in spring 2007.
