As part of our commitment to the community and to you, Lackawaxen Internet offers customers access to Internet site monitoring and site blocking software through our website. These software programs help monitor sites that people — particularly children — access or visit. While there are many filtering programs available, Lackawaxen is providing links to a few of these programs so our customers can view some of the different software programs and tools available. You can purchase the software online, and each site explains how to download and install the software on your home computer, and how to check or use it. The software monitors what sites are visited by all who use a particular computer. You can also set up the software to block particular sites — for instance, sites with a certain name in the address, on related to a certain subject matter — from being viewed. The software prevents children from viewing sites you don’t feel are appropriate, and allows you to monitor which sites your kids are using.

The reality unfortunately is that "less appropriate" sites still gain the most attention on the World Wide Web, with more and more hits every day. While we may wish that more worthy or educational information is available, and "less appropriate" content limited, this is not the case. We certainly can’t change what appears or is available to viewers on the web, but we can help you prevent your loved ones — whether intentionally or by accident — from viewing content you don’t feel is appropriate.

We hope you find these tools helpful, and we hope we can continue to serve you in the future.

As part of our new service, we now offer a way to block your child's email address from receiving unauthorized mail. You can go the the Subscriber Portal for your child's account and set the incoming mail to include only those email addresses that you deem appropriate. Go to the spam filtering option and select "Friends Circle Only" and enter the email addresses of friends and family. This will block email from any other addresses from coming into your child's email. Remember that you will need to update this list as any email address changes or if additions or deletions are needed.

Do you have a latchkey kid? We can help with another new feature. By setting times when your children have access to the Internet, you can feel safe that they are not online when you are not there to supervise.

For help setting these changes or for more information, our help desk is open 24 hours a day for your convenience. You can call 685-5554 for assistance.
