The Dangers of Newsgroups
Newsgroups sound like a good thing and some of them are, but like lots of things on the internet there also many not so good, with Hardcore Pornographic images and information on Illegal Drugs, Gambling and 32,000 other subjects of variable quality.
To protect your family from the negatives of Newsgroups, it is best to prevent access to them altogether, since most good information is available on the web.
1) Web Filtering
Using a Web Filtering program like secureweb enables you to block access to Newsgroups thereby protecting your children from the danger of them.
Secureweb also logs all activity and can send you a report of all the sites your children have accessed.
