A test commissioned by Kaspersky and performed by AV-TEST GmbH. Date of the report: June 25, 2020

Executive Summary

In May and June 2020, AV-TEST performed a feature and website blocking test on Kaspersky Safe Kids Parental Control application for Windows, Android and Apples iOS.The test focused on website blocking, showing how well the user of Kaspersky Safe Kids is protected from categories of websites like “Adult Content”, “Gambling” or “Profanity”. Also included is a feature review, which evaluates how well the product provides guardians with tools to keep their wards save when using modern technologies independently and unobserved.

A fundamental way to differentiate between parental control products is reviewing how well and effective non-desired websites are blocked. This is commonly done by selecting the undesired categories, which are then blocked from accessing. Kaspersky Safe Kids offers 14 categories for the user to select for blockage and it does a great job doing that. It is a frustration-free process browsing appropriate web content without the burden of much over-blocking for the user.

Overall, an average of 85% in Windows and 80% in Android of the websites tested for the categories are detected as potentially inappropriate. For example, the most undesirable category “Adult Content” managed to pass with an almost perfect 99.4% detection rate, achieved with less than 10% rate of over-blocking.

This feature review shows that Kaspersky Safe Kids provides numerous features sufficient to provide extensive and complete protection on all major operating systems. Covering all required areas such as harmful website blockage; Social Media control and Search Engine monitoring, to ensure only appropriate content can be accessed online; Time and schedule restrictions to foster a balanced amount of device use; Application Control, to restrict installation and usage of unsuitable apps; Reporting, to help guardians understand the children’s device interaction; Security and Tamper Protection, providing security and in digital environment securing devices and improving privacy.

Kaspersky Safe Kids also features YouTube Safe Search feature blocking search results by requests referring to prohibited categories like “Adult Content” or “Alcohol, tobacco, narcotics”.
