"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."
