Featured in The New York Times

SUREN on March 28, 2009

Mobicip was featured in this New York Times article today. We do precious little promotion for our products, and most of our users find us through referrals and word of mouth. So, any coverage is much appreciated, though the title is a little bit severe. Mobicip allows parents to setup the browser and not snoop on the Internet access, if that is their preference.

This was by design, since we believe that the monitoring should be a point of negotiation between the parent and the child. Many parents say that they don't actually have to snoop, but the fact that they can is by itself a deterrent. The kids counter that the filter catches most inappropriate content anyway, so what is the point of snooping. Of course, the parent holds the purse strings, but finding a mutually acceptable point is what we recommend.

What was more interesting to us is the discussion that followed. We feel that everyone has an opinion on the merits and demerits of Internet filtering, until it comes to their own kids. There is no question about which way they lean after that!
