Parental Controls and Mobile Web Filter for the Kindle Fire

MOBICIPNEWS on December 28, 2011

Mobile web filter for Kindle Fire Thank you Daniel Eran Dilger from AppleInsider.com for sharing important information regarding parental controls for the recently released Amazon Kindle Fire. In the article, Parents compain Amazon's Kindle Fire gives kids acces to porn, accounts, Mr. Dilger shares, "Amazon delivered its low cost Kindle Fire tablet primarily as a way for users to browse and buy digital content, but it omitted parental controls that can block access to pornography, explicit content or allow unattended kids to 'charge up a storm' on their parents' account." 

He also includes important feedback from "Caryn Talty, a parent blogger at HealthyFamily.org noted that while the Kindle Fire was a 'very cool, sleek electronic toy,' it 'has no parental monitoring safeguards installed on the device or available through a software download.'"

This article is important to Mobicip because we value mobile education and we believe that kids deserve to have a safe, secure and educational Internet for their Android smartphone or tablet.  Mobicip Safe Browser offers a mobile web filter for Android smartphones and tablets  (like the Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy tablet) so parents can get peace of mind knowing their kids can use the mobile web without being exposed to inappropriate content.
