Mobile Web Filter for Android 

Thousand Oaks, CA - Mobicip.com, the leading Internet filtering and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad as well as Windows 7 and Linux (laptops or desktops) has just announced the launch of Mobicip for Android. On smartphones and tablets, running the Android operating system, Mobicip offers a Safe Browser app that allows children to access the web safely, and an optional Premium service that allows parents or administrators to customize the content filtering and monitor the Internet activity online.

“It was imperative that we launch Mobicip’s Safe Browser for Android before the end of the year for two reasons.” says Mobicip’s Founder and CEO Suren Ramasubbu.  “One, Android OS-based devices like the Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy tablet are going mainstream now and being used increasingly by younger users.  Two, as kids are receiving Android devices and tablets for holiday gifts, parents need solutions to ensure these gifts allow only content that is appropriate for the kids’ age. It is easy to setup and manage by the parent so they can rest assured their kids are browsing on these devices without the risk of landing on inappropriate content.”

Mobicip Safe Browser for Android smartphones and tablets is available for download now on http://www.mobicip.com. The Safe Browser for Android is modeled after its bestselling namesake for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, uses the same path-breaking dynamic cloud content filtering engine, and works seamlessly with the Mobicip Premium service. Mobicip for iOS has been a top-selling app providing a safe, secure and educational Internet for families and school-age children, won several awards, and is being used by tens of thousands of parents and schools worldwide.
