PRESS RELEASE (11/26/2013)- There used to be a time when parents would setup an internet filter for the family computer and forget about it. Not anymore. In a world where the internet is rapidly evolving and coalescing, new content is published by the second, and said content is being accessed on any available gadget, it doesn’t make sense to be such an aloof parent anymore.
Mobicip, the most popular cloud-based internet filter for smartphones, tablets and computers, has created a new Monitor app that is available immediately on the iOS App Store. The Monitor allows a parent to stay in touch with the internet activity and browsing habits of their kids, all conveniently from a personal iPhone or iPad. The app also offers parental controls such as the ability to whitelist or blacklist a website / domain in the browsing history, change the filtering level, and edit the filtering profiles in the account.
“While the general notion is that kids are more tech-savvy than parents today, the latter have a vital role to play in educating kids on using the internet”, says Suren Ramasubbu, CEO of Mobicip. “But kids spend so much time online for day-to-day tasks like homework, that parents are faced with the overwhelming task of staying on top of their kids’ lives in the online world. The Monitor bridges this gap and not only gives a ringside view for parents, but also allows them to interact with their kids and instantly adjust the controls in place.”
Mobicip is the most popular parental control and internet filtering solution for smartphones, tablets and PCs. The best-selling Safe Browser has been consistently rated among top apps, downloaded and used by hundreds of thousands of parents and several schools and school districts worldwide. Recently the product was awarded the Tech & Learning magazine’s Award of Excellence and the 2013 Parents Choice Award. In addition to iOS devices, Mobicip offers the same protection and single-point control on Android devices and Windows PCs. Learn more at www.mobicip.com.
