Mobile Devices Present New Danger for Child Users

ANITHA on October 08, 2009

This from an article on Chic Mom Magazine:

Today's children have sophisticated desires for high tech "toys" such as mobile phones, iPods and netbooks. These mobile devices offer the convenience of full Internet browsing capabilities from anywhere, but they also open the door to a number of dangers. Unsuspecting children may be exposed to inappropriate content, cyber bullying and online predators. With mobile technologies changing as quickly as the minds of children, parents can hardly keep up with what the devices do, let alone know how to protect their children using them.

Luckily, there are parental control solutions available to help parents safeguard all of their children's devices to provide a secure, enjoyable online experience. One solution developed by Mobicip, a provider of Internet child safety products for mobile devices, allows parents to regulate and track their child's Internet usage of any of their mobile devices from the convenience of a single Internet site.

With the company's Mobicip.com Premium service, parents simply download the application onto each device and create an online account to customize the parental controls. Parents can choose from pre-defined age appropriate content filtering levels, build their own list of allowed/disallowed Websites and track their child's Internet surfing history.

Leveraging four stages of content filtering technology, the service blocks inappropriate content and tagged photos even on allowed Websites, putting parents at ease when their children are browsing. Because Mobicip.com is an Internet-based service, changes and updates are effective immediately with no need for parents to download software updates.

With parental controls in place, parents can rest assured that their children are protected when surfing the Internet, no matter where they are or what device they're using.
