Mobicip’s Safe Browser for Android is a powerful and full-featured alternative to the default browser. Download and setup the Safe Browser app on your child’s Android device. Once installed, the Safe Browser automatically locks other browsers and the Play Store.
On Android, the Safe Browser is a best-in-class browser that is based on the Mozilla Foundation’s Firefox browser for Android. All standard browser functions are fully supported and the browser can also be setup as the default browser on the device.
Wouldn’t it be handy if you can easily manage the rules and interact with your kids via an app on your phone?
The Monitor is a companion app for parents to select age-appropriate rules, receive notifications upon blocked activity or new app installs, receive and accept/reject override requests, and review the browsing history. All of this conveniently on your own personal iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad or iPod touch or an Android device such as the Google Nexus or Samsung Galaxy phone.
Install the Monitor app extension for the Apple Watch. Receive notifications when content is block or override is requested. Open the app to review any pending requests and approve.
Keep a watchful eye on the apps installed on your child’s device, all remotely without even touching the device. Get notified when new apps are installed, check the age rating, price and category on the App Store. No more surprises caused by app downloads.
Have a virtual conversation with your kids. When content is blocked, and they disagree, an access request can be submitted. You will receive an email and app notification, and you can quickly allow or reject the request. As simple as that.
Yes, that is right. There is way more where this is coming from. Head on over to check out the full list of parental controls features offered by Mobicip.MORE
To this day, a safe browser remains the best way to offer a safe Internet, without any workarounds, on Android. If anyone is telling you otherwise, go ahead and try what they recommend. More than likely, you will find a workaround within a few minutes
On iOS devices, a VPN-based filter can be installed using an MDM profile. The profile itself can be locked with a passcode and cannot be deleted. However, the VPN can very easily be turned off in the device settings, and there is no way to lock that. Who do you think will figure this out first?
On Android, real device-wide filtering is possible only by making kernel-level changes. While we attempted that, it is easier said than done as almost all Android variations are locked down by Google or the OEM and third-party developers are not allowed to make changes to it.
On Android, App Monitoring is enabled by default and there is no additional step. Once the Safe Browser app is installed, you will see the apps on the device displayed on the Apps page in your account. Follow the steps in this tutorial to get setup.
The only way to workaround Mobicip’s parental controls on Android is to jailbreak the device. This is not an easy task, it voids the manufacturer’s warranty, and leads to unintended consequences.
