Kid Safe Browsers

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.

We Recommend:
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.
