Mobicip announced today that it is offering Internet content filtering for the Kindle Fire in order to protect kids from inappropriate content.
The Mobicip’s Safe Browser app will enable children to access the web and browse websites that are only suit for their age. For a Premium Service, parents will be able to restrict the content by filtering and monitoring the Internet activity online.
“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.”
“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.
