Mobicip Mentioned in LA Times Article: "Smart phones, tablets can give kids access to unsavory content"

Mobicip application was mentioned in a Los Angeles Times article by Abby Sewell: "Smart phones, tablets can give kids access to unsavory content".  We are happy to feature a small part of the article on our blog, however we strongly encourage you to read the complete article at LATimes.com.

"So a growing number of applications — including Safe Eyes Mobile from InternetSafety.com, owned by McAfee Inc., and Safe Browser from Mobicip — are offering "kid-safe" filtered Internet browsers that can be set as an alternative to Safari on Apple devices.

Mobicip, based in Thousand Oaks, initially developed its application for use by schools to allow them to comply with the federal Children's Internet Protection Act, company founder Suren Ramasubbu said.

It found a market among parents as well, although Ramasubbu said tens of thousands of consumers have bought the app, compared with the millions who have bought Apple's mobile devices.

DiFalco, 42, a freelance writer in Vancouver, Wash., installed the Mobicip browser on her phone after testing it for the Parents' Choice Foundation, a nonprofit that rates children's products.

Before that, she said, she hadn't really thought about the need to filter access to the Internet on her phone."
