Preventing The Accidental Exposure

SHAILA on March 25, 2013

Did you know that 48% of kids in kindergarten through 1st grade have experienced accidental exposure to objectionable content online? Yes, thats right. K through 1st grade! Most of this exposure is in the form of images in search results. There is little doubt that early exposure has negative effects on the emotional development of the child.

Keeping Image Search Clean

Mobicip adopts a multi-pronged strategy to keep image search clean.

  1. As a first step, Mobicip always enforces 'Safe Search' on popular search engines. 'Safe Search' is an optional feature offered by most search engines that allow the user to restrict inappropriate results.
  2. Where this fails, Mobicip kicks in and scans the keywords or phrases. If found inappropriate, the search itself is blocked.
  3. Of course, there are situations where even this is not enough, like the example shown below. You can see that the search is allowed, but specific images returned by the search are flagged and blocked.

         Mobicip Filtering Images

While this is enabled by default for non-Premium users as well, Premium subscribers can adjust or modify the filtering settings by domain, category or keywords. The video tutorials on our YouTube channel should help you get setup.

If you have any issues or concerns, please contact support. If you are happy with Mobicip, please write a quick review on the App Store (or Google Play store)! Your feedback and help is much appreciated!
