Big Kid Secure Drive [Review] – How Does Big Brother Like It?

by nat finn on March 17, 2012

Offer details & such: 20-day in home trial – $7.95 P&P. If kept – $39.95. Sales tax: Varies. Notes: $12 S&H is added for items sent to Canada. An additional $7.00 is added for items sent to Guam, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, US Virgin Islands and Alaska.

When me and my friends were little kids, we’d wait for my buddy’s parents to finally pass out and then sneak on the computer and play an adults-only game: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Yeah, and we could never get past the pocket fluff stage.
But that was a different day and age. Nowadays, kids can hack your computer and f*** with your eTrade account and ruin your financial future. Or worse:  your fantasy baseball settings!
With the Big Kid Secure Drive, not only will kids not be able to get to those more evil sites, but they can take the device with them an use it on other computers – assuming you threaten to ground them if they don’t use it.

What Is Big Kid Secure Drive

The Big Kid Secure Drive is a flash drive that kids can take with them when they go stay at your perverted in-laws for the weekend. The plug in the drive into the computer, restart the computer and the Big Kid Secure Drive filters out that muck your father-in-law searches at at night. The flash drive also has enough space on it so kids can save electronic documents that they might be working on at school. Who knew 7-year-olds had PowerPoint presentations?

Anyway,  it’ll help parents breathe a little easier at night and it claims to comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act. So that should help.

Benefits, Claims & Features

According to BuyBigKid.com, Big Kid Secure Drive claims the following features and benefits:

  • Self-contained system
  • No spyware or viruses
  • No dangerous ads
  • No inappropriate websites

Does Big Kid Secure Drive Work? Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams…

Order Process: So far there hasn’t been any issues with the order process so far as we know. If you decide not to keep the product then send it back with plenty of time to spare and you should be okay. Remember, if you keep it you’ll get charged an additional $40 – the retail price of the product.

Product Performance: We didnt’ see anything glaring regarding the product performance, “No, my 6-year-old kid figured out how to bypass the system and saw 12 hours of pigmy porn,” or anything like that. Otherwise, the most of what we saw was marketing fluff. We did find this pretty funny post by our friends at Infomercial Hell. Take a read.

As for who Big Kid Secure Drive was compared to, here you go: McGruff SafeGuard & Net Nanny. If you paid attention to the marketing you’ll see that Big Kid claimed to have extra features that these big ones do not include if you think that factors in.

  • Self-Contained Operation System
  • Educational Applications
  • Games
  • Office Suite

Plus features that one competitor might carry but the others don’t.

Final Thoughts

If it’s me, I’m putting firewalls on the servers in the home. But that’s because my best friends are security engineers at Fortune 500 companies so I’d be that secure. For those who don’t have Fortune 500 security engineers, Big Kid might be something to at least test out. The question is:  is your children’s safety worth $50 to try out?
