Parental controls are good to have these days. There are a lot of sickos out there and the protection of our children online should be at the top of our lists. Social networking giant MySpace announced
on Wednesday they are developing a parent notification tool and age verification software. The software, codenamed Zephyr, will be a desktop application. The current MySpace age verification software online does not allow children under the age of 14 to gain access to register for an account, but really, who cant lie about their age? There have been a number of reported cases of minors who have been violated, stemming from their underage MySpace accounts, and MySpace along with parent company News Corp intend to stamp out the chances of minors gaining access to the site so they don't get harmed from their service. No date has been announced for the age verification software's debut.
