Mobicip has shared with us that Mobicip.com, the Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, now offers a YouTube filter for parents and educators to ensure their children’s safety when they access videos on the popular site. The YouTube filter is a feature of the Mobicip Safe Browser app, which is available for download from the Apple App Store.
YouTube Filtering Technology Allows Parents and Educators to Enable Mobile Learning
Suren Ramasubbu, mobile Internet safety expert and CEO of Mobicip.com, the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, says parents and educators must consider filtering YouTube content to ensure their children’s safety when they access videos on the popular site. “The Internet is evolving quickly and user-generated content is now our kids' way to learn and play, especially on sites like YouTube. We cannot be afraid of the technology our kids are adopting, as it's not going away. Instead, we need to embrace technology to protect our kids. Mobicip can separate and analyze YouTube content dynamically and block only the objectionable ones for a specified age-level. Parents and educators want to allow kids to be on YouTube for fun and play but block only objectionable videos and not the entire YouTube site. Keeping children safe is a challenge when the content is updated dynamically and inappropriate videos can be displayed or accessed by chance but can be solved with the right technological supports. It is neither sufficient nor fair to shield YouTube completely from young users. Parents and educators adding YouTube content filtering is the answer.”
