The company will launch the new mobile app at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 10-13, 2012 (Booth 3614 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center).

"Families have long sought ways to make the Internet safe for their kids," said Russ Warner, president and CEO of ContentWatch, makers of Net Nanny. "Net Nanny Mobile for Apple iOS and Android mobile devices will give parents the tools they need to protect their children however they may access the Internet."

Net Nanny Mobile is an app that customers will install on their mobile devices. Net Nanny Mobile will protect mobile devices as Net Nanny does on the desktop. Some of its many features include:

  • Web Filtering — Net Nanny Mobile filters pornography, alcohol, tobacco, hate, gambling and other objectionable sites in over 18 categories.
