Safe Browser For iOS & Android Vs. Web Filter For Windows

MOBICIPNEWS on July 03, 2013

The typical family, school or business today has a mix of smartphones, tablets and computers.Mobicip recognizes this heterogeneity and supports multiple platforms like iOSAndroid and Windows. While the filtering itself and Premium features work just the same, the approach to create a safe internet is fundamentally different.

The Difference

Mobicip pioneered the 'Safe Browser' approach on iOS and Android devices. A parent or administrator would install the Safe Browser and disable other browsers. On computers with Windows 7 and 8 (and Mac OS X coming soon), Mobicip is not a browser. Install Mobicip for Windows on the computer and it will filter any browser.
Comparing Mobicip for iOS Vs. Windows

The Sandbox Paradox

Why the difference? Mobile operating systems like iOS and Android create a 'sandbox' environment for apps to play in. Meaning an app cannot get into the inner layers of the operating system like it can on Windows. There is a reason that Apple and Google went this way. Malicious apps or websites cannot penetrate the sandbox and do bad things. There is much debate around this, but there is no doubt that it does make the device more secure. One of the downsides is the need for a safe browser approach enforce safety. Not ideal, but works well.
