Worried About Your Kids Being Online Late Into the Night on the iPod Touch or iPad? Setup Time Limits for Internet Access Using

MOBICIPNEWS on November 30, 2010

Thousand Oaks, CA - Mobicip.com, the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, has created an automatic solution for a common concern parents and educators have – the issue of kids being online too long.  Mobicip.com's premium users can now setup time limits for Internet access by following the link below http://www.mobicip.com/portal/settings/time_limits.  To ensure that the feature was parent and educator approved, Mobicip offered the beta version of the solution to a parent and educator test group.  The focus group feedback was used to make sure the feature was functional and helpful.  The feature is now live for all Mobicip.com premium users.

The solution came from listening to needs from common parent posts in the Mobicip Online Safety Forum: “Is it possible to disable Internet access after a specified time of day?  For example, 11 pm on weeknights.“  The Mobicip team identified a critical need and responded immediately; working on this tool to help parents and educators setup Internet access time limits for their kid’s mobile devices.

Mobicip.com’s intelligent real-time content filtering technology allows parents to rest assured that their mobile kids are using the Internet sans the sites that parents don’t want them to be on.  Mobicip's co-founder and CEO (a father of two), Suren Ramasubbu, Founder and CEO of Mobicip, is committed to Internet filtering with a purpose to enable mobile learning anytime anywhere.

“The web is not going away. Devices like laptops and the iPod Touch and iPad are always on and can be used from anywhere, even in the child's bedroom. There used to be a time when placing the computer in the family room was the best approach, but it is increasingly losing relevance now in the age of these mobile Internet devices”, says Ramasubbu. “Parents and educators cannot fight the technology and learning revolution the younger generations are growing up in, but they can take proactive steps to manage their children’s online use.

“In this paradigm, it is important that parents retain the ability to enforce the rules of household by limiting Internet access after a certain time in the evening. This feature was highly sought after by Mobicip's users, and we are happy to make it available for parents as yet another tool to keep the family safe online.”
