Virtual Laptop Protects Children Online With USB BraceletWiHood is a relatively new service which is the world’s first “virtual laptop” that protects children online [ anywhere & at all times] with the WiHood’s USB bracelet. The concept is ideal and it appears the user interface, setup and configuration is just as simple.Â This is what WiHood is:Â A USB bracelet which auto-launches a virtual desktop when connected to any computer.Â The virtual desktop runs off the WiHood servers which monitor and update website, programs, virus etc 24/7 for a completely kid friendly computer system.
From personal experience, my kids have trashed my computer – by mistake of course – but it still took time and skill to restore my PC.Â The WiHood USB bracelet eliminates this risk because a virtual desktop is all your child can use.Â The other issue I have with my kids using “the parent’s PC” is constant maintenance to monitor website, filters and content.Â With WiHood, that daunting task is automatically taken care of.
“WiHood protects children, saves parents from purchasing a new PC, and kids love that they have their own “virtual laptop” which stores their pictures, music, homework, etc. and can be worn on their wrist!”The USB bracelet uses the internal storage to save files, folders, pictures, music etc…but those files are only accessed through the virtual desktop which runs off the WiHood servers.Â This means your kids will enjoy all the performance of a PC with the security of a remote server running the underlining PC desktop. The WiHood is free to try and costs $49 for 6 months service or $100 per year.Â Stack that cost up against purchase of a dedicated PC for the kids and the WiHood is the clear choice. Still interested.Â Maybe some more information?Â Check out the WiHood FAQ page.Â Or their WiHood Virtual Laptop home page. WiHood was founded in August 2007 and has been honored to be awarded funding from Innovation Norway, a division of the Norwegian government providing capital to the most innovative companies in Norway.
