Talk Show Host Dave Ramsey Endorses 'Safe Eyes' Family Internet Filter
ATLANTA, GA — March 5, 2009 — InternetSafety.com announced today that Dave Ramsey, the radio talk show host whose syndicated program reaches more than 350 radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada, has endorsed the company's Safe Eyes family Internet filtering software to help parents protect children from inappropriate online content and Internet predators.
Ramsey will promote the software on The Dave Ramsey Show, heard on over 400 radio stations by 4 million listeners who tune into his advice on finances and family life each week, as well on their website which receives more than a million visits per month.
The well-known radio and television personality is endorsing Safe Eyes because of its ability to shield families from a variety of online dangers; the product's availability for PC and Mac computers as well as the Apple iPhone; and its #1 rankings from respected sources including PC Magazine, Laptop Magazine and America's leading consumer advocacy organization.
"I have felt very strong for many years and continue to feel passionately about the problem of inappropriate content that is messing with our kids and creating addictions that we see every day in our counseling around money problems," Ramsey said. "I believe this problem is pandemic. Safe Eyes is the most comprehensive solution I have seen for keeping the entire family safe on the Internet and combating the issues I see everyday."
Safe Eyes allow parents to block objectionable websites in their choice of 35 categories as well as by URL and keyword. The software also allows parents to limit length and timing of Internet use, block or record instant messenger chats, limit email use to certain addresses, detect the posting of inappropriate or personal information on social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook, and more. It works with multiple Internet browsers including Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari and is the only program of its kind that can be used in mixed Mac/PC households. A single $49.95 annual subscription covers up to three Mac and/or PC computers with the ability to customize settings for each child and enforce them on any machine.
Safe Eyes Mobile, the first filtering-enabled Internet browser for the Apple iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch, provides similar functionality. It blocks inappropriate pages while giving users full access to the rest of the Web. Safe Eyes Mobile works just like the built-in iPhone browser with pinch and tap zoom, bookmarks and built-in Google search, and has no noticeable effect on iPhone performance. It is available through the iPhone App Store at a special introductory price of $19.99 per phone.

The company's flagship software, Safe Eyes, is the two-time recipient of the PC Magazine Editors' Choice Award, earned a separate Editor's Choice Award from LAPTOP Magazine, and was rated as the #1 parental control solution by America's leading consumer advocacy publication.
