About the SIP - Benchmark III Study
The objective of the SIP BENCH III - Benchmarking of parental control tools study is to help end users - notably parents and child carers - to choose the most appropriate parental control tool that best fits their needs. The study benchmarks effectiveness, performance, usability, configurability, transparency, security (resistance to hacking and other security issues), suitability, and customization for European users and new forms of digital content.
