AGE-BASED FILTERING.
Updated: March 2017
Have you locked out Safari from your child’s tablet? Providing safe, age-appropriate and protected internet access is a top priority for parents and teachers alike.
With dynamic changes taking place in education and social networking, kids today are exposed to the multitude of information of all sorts and types. Faced with a similar challenge, I decided to explore the options and how I can better guide and monitor my small ones.
On this search only did I come across Mobicip.
Unlike other internet filters for iPhone, this one goes a step further and gives you full control to monitor the web browsing activities.
Completely restricting the use of Safari using parental controls is the easiest way out, but there has to be a middle way between allowing unlimited access to the web and cutting it off entirely. This is exactly what Mobicip offers!
Mobicip is a short form for “Mobile Child Internet Protection”.
Mobicip Safe Browser will keep your kids happy and your mind at peace as it is designed to work exactly like Safari. As stated on its website, “your child will not miss the default browser and have the rich browsing experience.”
How does it work?
Once you have purchased and downloaded the application, you will be prompted to create a Mobicip account. Once that’s done, you will be asked to identify the children who will be using the device.
You will require to have Apple ID and password to get smartphone’s data.
Here, you have the option to configure security and define limits of accessibility according to ages. This configuration will prevent access to sites deemed inappropriate for the age specified.
This user-friendly software is easy to install and puts your mind at rest. Graphically illustrated instructions can be found on its website.

The major benefit that this software offers is that of being installed on multiple forums. This way you can keep an eye on all your family members. You should not be intimidated by the fact that each family member has multiple devices through which internet can be easily accessed.
Multi-platform, multi devices feature is the highlight of Mobicip.
1. App Monitoring
Where other software will give you detailed logs about calls made and messages sent; however, this software also allows you to keep an eye on what applications have been downloaded.
2. Browsing history reports
If you miss out on live review of the websites visited, the application is designed as such that detailed history of all the browsing activities will be sent to you via email. This feature keeps you well informed even when you do not have physical access to the device.
3. Manage parental controls online
Once this parental control software has been downloaded and installed, you will be prompted to setup an online account. All the browsing history will be sent to your personal email account. The web-based dashboard, which can be accessed from anywhere in the world lets you effectively monitor your children’s activities.
4. Time Limits
Set time limits for internet usage for each user profile. In case the user tries to break the code or visit restricted pages, you will be notified of any such attempt in the browsing history reports.
5. Custom filter settings
Using this parental control app allows you to customize internet filtering in following 3 ways:
a. You can either completely allow or complete block any specific domain;
b. You can set categories that clearly defines the set limits that should be allowed for each set user profile;
c. You can also blacklist specific phrases or keywords; which will limit the accessibility to certain sites.
This way you are in charge of creating the preferable internet experience for your family that you’re comfortable with.
6. Access Requests
With the help of Mobicip advanced content filtering, you can allow or deny a request from your online account – allow to access a domain or simply reject to browse.
7. Multi-User, Multi-Device
One account can have multiple users and each user may have one or more devices attached to it. Try it yourself and let us know your experience with a multi-user dashboard.
Over to you…
Personally, I find this parental control app very useful. It works exactly like Safari on iOS and other device but with greater restriction on explicit material.
The protection offered is a real treat to mind and offers a great peace.
