TOS Crew: PG Key

Through the TOS Crew we were given the PG Key to review.  The PG Key is a plug and play type device that plugs right into any USB port on your computer and blocks out inappropriate websites.


At first, I thought well it would be very simple for someone to just pull the Key out and move on, but the PG Key people are much smarter than that!!  If you remove the PG Key, after it is installed, the computer notifies you that the PG Key has been removed and that the "This User Has Been Temporarily Disabled."  I am telling you they are Smart Cookies!!  They totally has me impressed!
So then I was thinking, what if my 2 year old pulls the PG Key and flushes it down the toilet like he did with my Blackberry!!!  Then I am stuck and can't use the computer, right?!!  Well, believe it or not, they've got that covered too!  If you lose the PG Key or if it gets flushed down the toilet then you have to have the password to go any further. 

Here are some things that I like about the PG Key:
  • The PG Key was SUPER SIMPLE it to set up!  I had it ready to go in just a few minutes.
  • I love how it is a ONE TIME FEE for the PG Key and THAT'S IT!  In other words NO MONTHLY FEES!
  • I was very glad that I could block specific sites and have the PG Key notify me if certain words were searched or typed in chat sessions.   
  • PG Key has great customer service.   I had a few questions about the PG Key so I called customer service and the gentleman that I spoke with was very polite and helpful. 
  • The PG Key includes a session recorder, which I thought was awesome!  It plays back the previous online session, in other words you can see a video of exactly what your children saw and what they were doing.  Your children may be on a game that is ok but the the advertisements on the page my not be appropriate for them to view.
There really wasn't anything that I didn't like or anything that I thought they could improve on, they pretty much seem to have everything covered.  This is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it! 

If you are ready to start keeping your kids computer time safe, you can purchase your own PG Key for $49.99 plus shipping and handling.

We were given the PG Key for review purposes.  The opinions expressed here are my own and I was not compensated in any way.
