Parental Controls

If you’re setting up a Standard account, the Parental Controls tab affords you the opportunity to shield your Mac—or its very young, very fearful, or very mischievous operator—from confusion and harm. This is a helpful feature to remember when you’re setting up accounts for students, young children, or easily intimidated adults. (This tab is available for Admin accounts, too, but it’s empty except for a “Nothing to see here!” sort of message.)

Tiger introduces a lot more peace of mind for parents than other operating systems. You can specify exactly who your kids are allowed to communicate with via email (if they use Mail) and instant messaging (if they use iChat), what Web sites they can visit (if they use Safari), what programs they’re allowed to use, and even what words they can look up in the new Tiger Dictionary.
