Customized “Kid Safe” web browsers such as KidZui have become a popular option for parents in recent years. These programs create a “walled garden” of age-appropriate content that has been pre-screened by reviewers. Kid safe browsers offer parents a trade-off: they greatly reduce the risk a child will be exposed to inappropriate content, but at the same time restrict access to a large amount of innocuous content. Therefore, kid safe browsers are most appropriate for younger children.
Ages up to 7: Ideal for children this age.
Ages 8 to 11: Still appropriate, but at this age parents should start using filtered Internet access as well.
Ages 10 to 13: May interest some this age.
Ages 14 to 17: Unlikely to be of interest to teens.
