Internet Filter / Family Filter still hard to develop?
Once grievance that I've had with Blackberry through my many years of patronage, is the lack of internet control and filtering apps available. It seems like the Blackberry platform was NOT set up for developers to create these apps properly. True, if you run your own Blackberry Enterprise Server and want to spend dollars, you can set up filtering policies that way, but that is not feasible for personal and family use. Does anyone have any clue whether this could improve with Blackberry 10, and why couldn't Blackberry offer some parental controls if no developer is willing to create them.
I'm talking about the kind of app where you can set your internet content categories appropriate for children, or even religious purposes, and is not by-passed without a password or device wipe.
And I should mention that I do not like the Android filters. The only filters you can get for Android are ones where you have to disable the stock browser and use some knock-off browser that comes with the filter. In many cases you have to actually root the phone and DELETE the stock browser, as the app sometimes forgets to block the stock browser it seems. I don't know what Iphone has available, but surely Blackberry can do something better, cmon!? It seems like so far at least no developer for BB10 has come up with anything. Maybe a larger company will attempt it after the actual release. I was hoping someone coudl give me some hope.

Re: Internet Filter / Family Filter still hard to develop?
I'd be interested in a filter like this. I wonder if the parental controls will work. Only time will tellMoto Rokr E1 > Moto SLVR > Pantech Duo > HTC G1 > Blackberry Bold 9700 > Bold 9900 > HTC G2 & BB 9000 > Z10
Tmobile USA - Prepaid $30 per month! (100 minutes, unlimited data throttled at 5 GB, unlimited sms). Then I use VoIP at home for free wifi calling

I wonder what they mean by "restrict internet access". That would rock if there was content categories you could set. A native filter like this would be by far the best, it would blow the competition to nothing as far as filters go.
Guaranteed they will and already have it fully under control if your willing to spend 1 or 2k on their Enterprise Server and CALs. In the past the Enterprise Features with IT polices haven't been available for personal use, and they are horribly expensive if all you need is content filtering. From the little I've seen, the Balance feature looks like its for Enterprise users only, and that generally doesn't come cheap. I just downloaded the Blackberry Enterprise Service 10 for free though and I'm going to see what all can be done with it. I'm not sure if this will continue to be free or not though, and the CALs are about 100 bucks a device, which isn't too bad I guess, but this is all to advanced and expensive for the average user.

the software are not only adhere to desktop, the newer products of cloud Internet filtering (one of the highly advanced techniques) and also the best thing appeared, i.e. to introduce a mobile internet security named as Comvigo Mobile for android phones.
