How To Block Objectionable Content On YouTube

SUREN on March 01, 2014

This should be no surprise really. According to Common Sense Media's 'Zero to Eight' survey, 47% of kids use mobile devices to watch videos today. A 135% jump since 2011! Of course, YouTube remains the No. 1 online video destination on the internet, according to Nielsen Online. It goes without saying that what kids watch, or stumple upon, on YouTube is one of the biggest sources of worry for parents.

Google's Safety Mode for YouTube is poorly supported on mobile. Even if you're able to setup and enforce Safety Mode, whether it is actually effective is questionable. Try it out yourself to see its effectiveness, or lack thereof.
On tablets like the iPad, Galaxy, and Kindle Fire series, setting up a Safe Browser (like Mobicip, of course) remains the most effective alternative to keep bad stuff out! Mobicip instantly screens each video by its title, description and other metadata. You can monitor the videos yourself via the Monitor appemail or online report. No filter is 100% effective, but having an automated scanner and a parent to back it up is as good as it gets. Try Mobicip for free today.
 
To report issues or feedback, please get in touch with us. If you're happy with Mobicip, leave a happy review on the Apple App Store or Google Play store! Your feedback and support will be greatly appreciated!
