Mobicip E-Newsletter: Keyword Blocking and Accountability Mode

MOBICIPNEWS on January 31, 2013

It has been a hugely productive 2012 at Mobicip. We have had our head in the sand building a slew of new features for you.

Keyword or Phrase Blocking

As you know, Mobicip's filtering engine scans every piece of content that is being accessed on the web. Now, you can add your own spin to it by adding custom keywords or phrases to your blacklist. Any content that has the banned phrase or keyword will be blocked. The feature is available for Premium users immediately. Login at mobicip.com, select Settings > Phrases and add to the list.

Accountability

Driven by popular demand from adults and older kids using Mobicip, we now support what is called 'Accountability Mode'. You can now set the level for a user profile to 'No Filtering. Reports Only.' This will allow the user to access the internet unfettered, but with reporting enabled. The parent or accountability partner can login at mobicip.com and monitor the browsing history remotely.

As your kids grow older and learn to use the internet responsibly, allow open access with monitoring enabled. Make sure to review the reports and have 'the conversation' when required. Your kids will enjoy the freedom, and you can stay in touch with their online lives. 

On a side note, we are thrilled and proud to note that Mobicip was selected by Tech & Learning magazine for their 2012 Award of Excellence. Yay! The pat in the back is most welcome. Please send your pats by writing a quick review on the App Store (or Google Play store)! 

Your feedback and help is much appreciated!
