The original, award-winning Net Nanny™ parental controls is now available for Android. Give your child the freedom to surf the Internet without the fear of inappropriate content. Net Nanny is a custom mobile browser that becomes your child’s default browser. Net Nanny can also manage which apps your child can or cannot use on their mobile device. Manage your child’s settings and devices, view reports, add users and much more from the web-based console. Simply follow the installation instructions and create a user profile for your child on his or her device. Use one of the pre-defined age-based user profiles or customize settings to include categories you create or specific sites you wish to block or allow.

A fully functional free trial protects your Android device for 14 days. Afterward, an annual subscription is available for US$12.99 for one device (Discounts available for multiple devices).

Net Nanny shows which apps are installed on the protected mobile device. Parents can block unwanted apps, see when new apps are installed, and even prevent new apps from running until approved.

Choose from among four pre-defined, age-appropriate user profiles for your filter settings: Child (ages 7 and under), Pre-teen (ages 8-12), Teen (ages 13-17), Adult, or customize your own settings.

Net Nanny filters against 18 pre-defined categories. Each category can be configured to Block, Warn or Allow access to a page containing content in that category. Parents can also create their own custom categories.

Net Nanny enforces the strictest safe search setting on all popular search engines. The user cannot disable this setting.

Once installed, kids must use the Net Nanny browser. Other browsers cannot launch. Administrator credentials are required to uninstall the app. Net Nanny also prevents most common task killers and app managers from stopping or uninstalling the app. SSL proxy sites are filtered. Strong uninstall and anti-circumvention tools ensure your child is always protected.

Net Nanny categorizes web pages in real time, including brand-new web sites and sites with user-generated content, such as comments or posts. With over 150,000 new web pages each day, traditional list-based filters cannot adequately protect your family.

Filter HTTPS sites using real time contextual analysis

Swear words are replaced with characters (@#$%) so web pages with otherwise-appropriate content can still be viewed.

Administrators can manage any number of users and devices from a web-based console. Log in at to manage your family’s settings and account. Setting changes are reflected on the device in under a minute. You can also manage your Net Nanny 7 for Windows users from the same console and the user and family settings will work across both products.

Set days/times when your child will be allowed to browse the internet using their protected Android device.

Create custom lists for sites that should always be allowed (whitelist) or always be blocked (blacklist). Parents can also permanently override a blocked site on the device.

Your child’s mobile device is protected on any WiFi or 3G/4G network.

Net Nanny uses the latest Mozilla browser technology, making it robust, intuitive and familiar.

Use the web-based Admin Console to view top web pages visited, blocked categories and alerts.

    This freaking sucks! It crashes every 5 minutes and restarts everything on my phone, including my music! And then when its not restarting, it just turns off completely anyways, so it doesnt do anything to prevent getting on the web like its suppose to.

    Good app. Would be nice if it did not ask every time if I wanted to use net nanny. And it would be nice if it utilized Any browser.

    This does a fine job blocking the trash on the internet, but totally crashes all the time. Every other page it closes itself and I have to start my search all over. Please fix. I'd give 0 stars if I could.
