How To Use Your Browsing History Reports

SHAILA on March 02, 2013

Have you upgraded to Premium yet? See what you might be missing. If you upgraded already, you've probably reviewed reports of your kids' internet activity. Whether you keep tabs via your email inbox or online, perhaps you wonder what in the world you should do with it. 

Empty Report

If your report shows no data for a user or device, only one of two things is possible.

  • Your user has figured out a workaround. Yes, it can happen if your setup isn't right
  • Your user has not accessed the internet in the past two months. Unlikely, but possible nevertheless.

Blocked Content

When you login at mobicip.com, by default you are shown a report of your kids' browsing history that was blocked. You look for two things here:

  • Is therMobicip reports screenshote a pattern of browsing behavior that seems age-inappropriate? A glance through the report and click-throughs to blocked searches should give you an idea. The next step is to have a conversation with your user about it.
  • Are there legitimate websites on the list that are blocked? Review the reason. Click-through and view the content yourself. If you think the content should be allowed, you can whitelist the domain or allow the category.

Allowed Content

To review your kids' browsing history that was not blocked, select 'All Websites' or 'Allowed Websites' on the Reports screen. You look for two things here:

  • Are there domains or searches on the list that you would rather have blocked? You can make this happen by customizing your filtering by website, category or keywords in the Settings tab.
  • Your report also shows that time when internet was accessed. If your kids browsing away in bed at midnight gives you the creeps, you can setup Time Limits for internet access.
  • Is the browsing behavior age-appropriate? You know your child the best, but sometime you may be surprised, pleasantly or otherwise. Time to have the talk.?

If you have any issues or concerns, please contact support. If you are happy with Mobicip, please write a quick review on the App Store (or Google Play store)! Your feedback and help is much appreciated!

Using Digital On-Ramps

Just a few weeks ago the World Health Organization announced that infants under 1 year old should not be exposed to electronic screens at all.
