MOBICIPNEWS on May 10, 2012

 We are happy to share that Mobicip was mentioned in The New York Times yesterday in the Motherlode, Adventures in Parenting, category. Amy O'Leary wrote a great article titled: "Can Your Child Find Porn on Your Phone?". We encourage you to read the complete article to get all of Amy's internet safety tips. You can also read these other articles by Amy for more Parenting advice: "So How Do We Talk About This? When Children See Internet Pornography" and "How to Talk to Your Kids About Pornography: Parents’ Stories and Expert Advice".

Amy writes in Motherloade, Adventures in Parenting, article: 
 
"3. Don’t forget that smartphone, or the neighbor’s open WiFi connection.
 
We don’t just live in an age awash in devices, but networks, too. Smartphones and some tablets can connect to the Internet on cellular phone networks, and no amount of filtering on your home network can batten down another person’s open WiFi connection. One option for mobile devices is to install a filtered mobile Web browser,  such as Mobicip, to replace the standard Web browser on those devices, and works anywhere you take them, including iPod Touches, iPads, iPhones as well as PCs, and Linux and Android-based devices.
 
'It’s sort of like teaching them how to drive,' said Suren Ramasubbu, the founder and C.E.O. of Mobicip, 'You let them browse and they run into content that’s blocked and they come and talk to you.' Then, he says, you can slowly open up access settings."
 
Once again, we encourage you to read the complete article at The New York Times site.
