Is there a French equivalent of the English term 'Net nanny'

The question is 'Que peut-on faire pour proteger les jeunes en ligne?'

Well, as far as I can tell it's the name of a specific piece of software, and so it may just not be translated at all! I suppose an equivalent might be something like 'une bonne d'Internet', but I'm not sure if that's really what you're looking for.

I agree, Net Nanny being the name of program, you can't really use it... It wouldn't make sense at all in French since we don't have that. Instead, try and use a description of the software. Logiciel de contrôle parental for instance. I disagree with Bonne d'internet though. I guess it's a good translation for net nanny but nobody would understand what it means in French.

Fair point - actually: thinking about it, the only context in which you could use 'Bonne d'internet' would be if you'd already explained that it was a 'logiciel de contrôle parental'.

Even then, bonne isn't used in the sense of a nanny but more in the sense of maid, so Bonne d'Internet really doesn't make sense... Then again I wouldn't have understood what Net Nanny was until I had google'd it.
