Parents can optionally upgrade to the Premium Web Monitor service, a web-based application to customize the internet filter and monitor browsing history remotely without touching the device. The new 'monitoring-only' aka 'accountability' mode allows a family or school to setup the service with no filtering, but with only browsing history being monitored.

Unfettered access to the internet will be allowed, but with the caveat that browsing history is captured in the browsing history reports online or sent via email.

"Older kids can learn to use the internet responsibly while under remote and unobtrusive supervision. It really is akin to the parent riding shotgun giving driving lessons."
