About us

Why we exist

NetNation was started by Nick Duncan, a South African father and husband. Nick was frustrated with the existing solutions that offered inadequate protection and slow internet speeds. Nick set about building NetNation in 2019 to address the growing need to regain control over what our children experience online.

In today's times, it seems as though the kids are more technologically savvy then the parents which poses a problem to parents wanting to install and manage online filtering systems. One of the major issues with the existing solutions available on the market is that kids find them easy to bypass. Nick developed NetNation with this in mind and ensured maximum protection and anti-bypass architecture.

Another issue faced with the existing solutions is that kids find it embarrassing to have to use an app with the word "nanny" in it. Imagine being a teenager, wanting to show your friends something online and then opening up a "nanny" app to browse the internet. With NetNation, you don't require a dedicated app to browse the internet. All internet traffic on your laptops, computers and phones are ported directly through our servers no matter what browser you use.

NetNation has observed a growing need to empower parents and businesses with technology that enables them to provide protection to those they care about.

Our mission is to ensure that children, teenagers and young adults (as well as employees) are not desensitised by what can be found intentionally or unintentionally on the internet.
