Hathway, Site Police tie up to prevent Internet abuse

MUMBAI: Hathway Cable Internet and Site Police have come together to stop abuse of the Internet by providing solutions for its subscribers.

Siti Police is the Internet filtering software that stops pornography, chatting, games and other applications as per the subscribers wish.


With the growing Internet broadband subscriber base more and more people are exposed to a variety of content, which include educational links, sports, news, chat rooms and other harmful content like pornography. As per the deal, Hathway will be offering Site Police a premium net filtering service to make Internet surfing more family friendly.

This user-friendly software can be easily installed in the PC to block any unwanted content and application like pornography, chatting, games or any other harmful content, as per the subscribers wish. This filtering solution will be offered free for its annual subscription packages.

Some of the features that Site Police has to make the Internet family friendly are as follows:

Filters harmful web content: The software uses a complex multi-tier algorithm to filter out pornography and other harmful web content.

Monitors online activity: Site Police maintains records of all websites visited in the past. These records can be viewed using the 'History' option.

Flexible settings: The user can customise the software to allow or disallow the browsing of website and can further change these settings as frequently as desired.

Block applications: Site Police is customised to select any type of window-based application for blocking purpose.

One of the highlights of this product is that it helps the user to control, restrict and allow Internet access as per the subscribers requirements.

As per a recent survey, one out of four kids in the past year is reported to be exposed to sexually explicit pictures (on the web) and one out of five reported receiving a sexual solicitation (via chat/email). Nearly a third (31 per cent) of kids age 10-17 from households with computers (24 per cent of all kids 10-17) are reported to have seen a pornographic web site.

This initiative by Hathway Cable Internet and Siti Police will also be beneficial to the corporates where misuse of the Internet maybe one of the prime concerns.
