YouTube Filter for iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad

At Mobicip, we review customer feedback constantly and try to identify common themes. One persistent request has been around safe YouTube access. While Mobicip has always filtered YouTube, it was being filtered just like any other website. Mobicip would scan the entire page and the page would then be allowed or blocked. However, in the context of YouTube, parents want us to block only objectionable videos and not the entire page or site.

In response to these requests, and given that YouTube is the most visited site among children, Mobicip has created a YouTube-specific filtering engine. This means that Mobicip scans each individual YouTube video and determines if it is appropriate for that age level.

Don't take our word for it. You have to try this to believe it. Follow the steps in this tutorial to setup YouTube filtering on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad using Mobicip. We believe this is a truly revolutionary advance in creating a safe web, but If you could try it and send us your feedback, it will be much appreciated.

Mobicip For Windows

By popular request, Mobicip for Windows is available in the form of a public beta. To participate in the beta, simply express your interest via email or through the contact form. We will set you up with a free trial and send you instructions immediately.

Setup Time Limits for Internet Access

Mobicip Safe Browser 2.5.5 Update Now Available

Please download the latest update from the App Store which includes several bug-fixes and performance improvements. Yes, updates are always free.

FAQ Spotlight: Why Are My Reports Empty?

This is the single most common question we are asked by our users and the most common reason to upgrade to the Premium service. If your reports show no activity, it probably means your setup is not foolproof. See this article to troubleshoot the setup and ensure that Mobicip is the only browser on the device.

If there are other issues or features you want to highlight to us, please send a quick note to support@mobicip.com. We will continue to listen to your feedback and fix problems as best we can.

Sincerely
Mobicip.com Crew
