Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:27 pm

AOL on Monday started offering its parental controls software to all Web users, the latest step in the Internet service provider’s transition to an entertainment portal.

AOL, a unit of Time Warner, has always made the software available to subscribers of its proprietary service, which was mostly used by dial-up subscribers. The tools provide parents with age-based access controls to Web sites, as well as controls on instant messaging and chat. In addition, parents can get email reports on their children’s online activities.
