Go Guardian type software for Windows 10?

    We've been using Go Guardian on our Chromebooks and really like it. The black and whitelist features, flagged terms and risk notifications work great for us. I was just wondering if anyone has something they really like for PCs. We use iBoss but it just doesn't have the same real time reporting as  Go Guardian. Obviously different worlds. But just curious. Thanks for any help.

    Hi Anne, I know this is an old post but my Googling brought me to your post.  We are in a similar boat, we use iBoss to meet the CIPA requirements but have used GoGuardian in the past and prefer a Google-integrated solution.  I heard over the weekend that GoGuardian is running a closed Beta at the moment for Windows PC.  I am going to reach out to them to see if I can jump in.  

    Thanks,

    Ben Russell

    For anyone who stumbles onto this thread, using group policies and Chrome on our Windows computers, we are able to replicate a Chromebook-like experience with GoGuardian now.  This summer we are planning on switching our fixed workstations to Windows Desktop kiosks with:
    - Auto-logon
    - Force the Chrome Browser
    - School google account sign in required to browse
    - Chrome deletes all cache/logins when the browser is closed or computer shuts down. 

    Some district may not be able to pull this off if they have internal resources for students using AD security but we do not have that in East Providence.  If anyone wants to see it in action, please feel free to ping me.
