In modern conditions of blurring the boundaries between the virtual and the real world, as well as the transition of virtual threats into reality, the issues of user security on the Internet are becoming increasingly important. This is especially true for children and adolescents who are at high risk because of their young age, lack of skills in safe behavior on the Internet, and lack of understanding of what moral and/or physical harm this or that information can cause. Therefore, parental control applications that extend and complement the capabilities of information security tools on the user's devices are in increasing demand. Basically, such applications provide: monitoring and limiting time of operation of the device, monitoring and restricting access to sites (by age restrictions, by type of sites, by forbidden words, black or white lists) and applications on the device, tracking the user's movements (for mobile devices), monitoring on-lineonline, generation of various reports and statistics on the use of the device and Internet resources, remote control of the device. The article provides a comparative analysis of such applications, discusses the functional features of some of them, provides recommendations for the selection of parental control applications based on user requests, as well as determines the prospects for their development.
