Pros
Ease of use on account of its very robust admin console that allows for nuanced control of PCs and delivers excellent and useful reports (BrowseReporter).

The software is not overly intrusive yet offers outstanding management control. Of the few issues that came up in the install, tech support was beyond outstanding.

We have used other web filtering and block programs before and CurrentWare has been the best for us and at a great price.

Cons
We use to used a GFI blocker app which never worked properly. The policies were terrible to set at that moment.

Since going live with BrowseControl, the number of requests that have come in about the "blocking" software not working has decreased dramatically.

Client side to disable filtering can be a bit clunky, if you stop the currentware service, it will disable. Rebooting brings everything back up.

Very Glad We Found BrowseControl

Reviewed 2 years ago

Since going live with BrowseControl, the number of requests that have come in about the "blocking" software not working has decreased dramatically. Before, it was almost a daily issue, and now it happens every now and then. This is fixed by restarting the Client Service.

Pros

BrowseControl is very simple to setup, and it is very easy to install on the client's computer. Also, the ongoing administration of the devices is easy to maintain.

Cons

The password keeps getting reset to the default value on our client's computers. This is a little concerning overall, but this is not a threat with our current client base.

Vendor response

Hey Jude, Thanks for the great feedback! We appreciate it. Regards, The CurrentWare Team

Amazingly easy setup with great support

Reviewed 2 years ago

It allows my workers to use the internet and make money for the practice without distraction/temptation to use personal websites/email/shopping.

Pros

The support and ease of setup. As a “novice” I was able to set up with help from support in about an hour. Previous software took forever and didn’t work as advertised. This software worked right out of the box.

Cons

No cons to speak of, I have zero complaints about the software

Vendor response

Satisfied Customer

Reviewed 3 days ago

Overall, satisfied with the price and functionality. Have been a user for a few years.

Pros

Software works - no "glitches", pretty simple to manage once set up and self-explanatory.

Cons

A little complicated to set up on you're own if you're not an IT person. However, you can contact support and they can assist. Current version is only available for Windows Pro which is something to consider.
