Hello Mantico,'
Welcome!
"Using KIS, Parental Control, Keyword Control, you can configure monitoring of usage of specific words and word combinations in the user's correspondence over social networks and on websites.
Detect use of key words
This check box enables / disables control of use of key words and word combinations in the user's messaging.
If this check box is selected, Parental Control saves information about use of key words in messaging to a report. You can create a list of key words and word combinations in the List of key words window. This window opens when you click the Edit list of key words link.
If the list of key words is empty, Parental Control does not monitor use of key words.
If this check box is cleared, Parental Control does not monitor use of key words.
Edit list of key words
Clicking this link opens the Keyword Control window. In this window, you can create a list of key words and word combinations to be controlled in the user's messaging."

  • HOWEVER, this monitors the use of the "defined" words, "BLOCKs" in messaging, like Facebook & webforms, not in web browsers.
-------
  • KSK has no WORD BLOCKING/FILTERING available, nor does it have the KIS KEYWORD Control feature.
-------
  • Also note, apparently Kaspersky is replacing Parental Control, available with ALL Kaspersky (home) product software, with KSK and apparently, KSK will have to be purchased seperately.

The "feature" you require would be a wonderful enhancement to KSK & or KISA Parental Control, you can log a "suggestion" via your MyKaspersky account - https://my.kaspersky.com/, the Lab needs to know what real world parents require to keep their kids safe. They get to know by listening to feedback from real world parents.
-------
And, depending on the browser used and the device type, both Google & Firefox offer a "Content Filter", I've yet to test these, I will, I'll post any relevant info.

Thanks for posting your important question!

Best regards!

Hello Mantico,'
The KPC - Keyword Control - feature, ONLY logs the "excluded" words in a report - it does not send alerts, nor does it block.
As per previously advised, KSK - has NO Keyword Control features at all, no reporting, no filtering, no blocking, no alerting.
------------
KSK on on Android devices, will monitor access to the Internet in Google Chrome and the standard browser. No Keyword Control available.
Kaspersky Safe Kids cannot block Safari on your child’s iOS devices
https://help.kaspersky.com/KSK/Mob1.0MR16update13/en-US/95017.htm
& if kids used FIREFOX browser & or other browsers, KSK won't work.
& on Windows, there are different limitations: https://help.kaspersky.com/KSK/Win1.5/en-US/176813.htm
------------
The Google & Firefox "Content Filter", I refererred to earlier, works.

Best regards.
Flood, how do I send a suggestion for this? I agree with Mantico and would love to have this feature. Do I send it through "support", which is basically contacting the tech support?
