Parental Controls for Amazon Kindle Fire Available From Mobicip

MOBICIPNEWS on January 11, 2012

Mobile Web Filter for Android Thousand Oaks, CA – As devices like Kindle Fire grow in popularity, parents’ concern about what their children are viewing online is growing as well.  Mobicip, the leading Internet content filtering and parental controls service for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows 7 and Linux (laptops or desktops) wants to make sure today’s kids safely use the mobile web. In response to popular demand, Mobicip released parental controls specifically for the Amazon Kindle Fire this month.

“We’ve seen a lot of outpour over the excitement of Amazon’s Kindle Fire by parents in forums and articles,” says Suren Ramasubbu, CEO and Founder of Mobicip, “But because some apps like Facebook cannot be removed by the user, it is imperative that third party parental controls are installed to make the experience appropriate for their age level.  With Mobicip, kids can safely and securely use these devices when parents install our dynamic content filtering.

Available for Kindle Fire, smartphones, and other tablet devices, Mobicip’s Safe Browser app allows children to access the web in a way that suits their age. An optional Premium service allows parents or administrators to customize the content filtering and monitor the Internet activity online.

“We had such a strong request by parents who were gifting their kids with devices like Kindle Fire to offer our parental controls and online content filtering over the holiday season.  Because of this, we expedited our Kindle Fire filtering solution to ensure these gifts were used in a way that omits content that parents don’t want their kids to see.” said Ramasubbu.

Mobicip Safe Browser for Kindle Fire and Android smartphones and tablets is available for download now at 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.
