About Web Browsers Summary

Mobicip for the iPhone and iPod touch is a Web browser that blocks children from viewing adult content on their portable device. Utilizing a unique type of dynamic filtering, this browser does more than just check a website against an existing URL blacklist. Mobicip also uses ratings set by the Family Online Safety Institute and, if all else fails, employs real-time content analysis to determine if a particular site is inappropriate for kids.

This three-pronged approach is both innovative and effective, giving parents peace of mind while their youngsters are browsing on the go. Filters can be set at one of three levels - High school, Middle school, and Elementary school - with the latter naturally being the most restrictive.

Content filtering isn't the only reason to use Mobicip. The browser also features integrated traffic encryption which helps ensure that your personal information is safe when surfing the Web from a less than secure hotspot such as your local Starbucks.

Although Mobicip is one of the more expensive browser alternatives for the iPhone and iPod touch, the protection that it offers your children is more than worth the price.
