Parental Controls and Mobile Web Filter for the Kindle Fire

Mobile web filter for Kindle Fire Thank you Daniel Eran Dilger from AppleInsider.com for sharing important information regarding parental controls for the recently released Amazon Kindle Fire. In the article, Parents compain Amazon's Kindle Fire gives kids acces to porn, accounts, Mr. Dilger shares, "Amazon delivered its low cost Kindle Fire tablet primarily as a way for users to browse and buy digital content, but it omitted parental controls that can block access to pornography, explicit content or allow unattended kids to 'charge up a storm' on their parents' account." 

He also includes important feedback from "Caryn Talty, a parent blogger at HealthyFamily.org noted that while the Kindle Fire was a 'very cool, sleek electronic toy,' it 'has no parental monitoring safeguards installed on the device or available through a software download.'"

This article is important to Mobicip because we value mobile education and we believe that kids deserve to have a safe, secure and educational Internet for their Android smartphone or tablet.  Mobicip Safe Browser offers a mobile web filter for Android smartphones and tablets  (like the Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy tablet) so parents can get peace of mind knowing their kids can use the mobile web without being exposed to inappropriate content.

Please launch this for Windows Phone - you would be first to market on that platform!

Thank you for your interest in Mobicip for Windows mobile. Unfortunately, our Mobicip for Windows solution has not yet been customized for Windows mobile devices. We will post any updates regarding this in this forum.

Any update on your Windows phone solution?  Will it be available in the near future?

Thanks

 

Hello Howard,
We do intend to offer Mobicip for Windows Phone/tab in future. However, Microsoft has not opened up the operating system for third-party developers like us yet. The SDK offered at this time does not allow any security software like Mobicip to be developed for this operating system.
 
We have contacted Microsoft and are hopeful that the situation will change in future. Mobicip for Windows solution has not yet been customized for Windows mobile devices, as of now. We will keep you posted on any updates regarding this.
