Google Chat- Chat Panel in Gmail NOT blocked as IM???
I have installed Safety Minder and restarted our sons' PCs. 2 are on Vista32 and one on XP. I have my child's settings on Chat Supervision = ON and below I have it set for BLOCKED. I have updated the local rules and restarted all. I have assigned his Login to his profile when asked to on his two machines- laptop and desktop and also on his brother's.
A few things jump out at me:
1. He can still Instant Message in the browser with Gmail/Google chat. We're using FF latet BTW. ???
2. The 'Chat Settings' say : NO IM Friends Found, NO IM Accounts found.....but he has Google Chat and AOL IM....???
2.5 AOL IM is giving a message that the user name and password don't work so I gather it's being blocked
3. Under Social Networking Settings it tells me he 'Has NO Known Social Network Accounts' and yet he has a Facebook page he accesses from this machine. Now he may not HAVE accessed it yet since I installed Safety Minder...is that the issue?
Websites seem to block OK. I tested YouTube, which I listed as a blocked site and it blocked him and emailed me as I had hoped.
Help appreciated...we're excited about the product but it seems pretty porous right now.
