Wii Have A Porn Problem
Alright parents now listen up. We wanted to let you know that Nintendoís Wii Gaming Console can access pornography. This highly popular and very fun gaming console is one of the hottest items out there and is a blast to play. But because the device is a Wi-Fi (wireless internet) console able to access the internet, this means that you can surf the net pretty easily.
Many times when we buy something for our kids we fall into the trap of thinking that it only does this one function i.e.: playing games. But most new electronics coming out have Wi-Fi technology which means internet access. And you thought you only had to worry about the family computer! Oh no! And parents, please donít fall into the trap of thinking because you may not have wireless internet (Wi-Fi) in your home that youíre safe. Many times Wi-Fi signals from your neighbors can beam into your house allowing for a great internet connection. Darn those neighbors!
So What Do You Do?
The Wii Parental Control settings offer you a means to manage what Wii content is accessible to the console users. If you apply Parental Controls, you will be prompted to set a 4-digit PIN which will allow you to adjust the Parental Controls settings in the future and also allow you to access content that may be restricted by the Parental Controls settings. The Parental Controls default setting is "OFF" which means that the console will allow all content unless you change the settings. There is one Parental Controls setting per console, so it is recommended that you put the settings on the most secure that you need for your family; you can then share the PIN with users who may be allowed access to blocked content.
If your Wii console is also connected to the internet, you have the ability to place limits on the following online features:
Internet And News Channels
Use of Points
