Ubiquitous Internet access on your home PC desktop, laptop or netbook is a wonderful thing and your children need this access more than ever. But how do you keep them safe as they navigate the myriad content online and learn safe browsing?
This tutorial will walk you through the setup of Mobicip's Internet filter and parental controls on any Windows computer.
Here is a step-by-step guide to setup parental control restrictions on Android smartphones and tablets like the Kindle Fire and Samsung Galaxy tablet. iPhone and iPod Touch users can find a similar tutorial here and iPad users can find one here.
Mobicip's web filter can be very effective for large deployments in schools, groups or enterprise settings. Follow these simple steps to setup a large set of devices protected using a single Mobicip.com account. Don't have an account? Create one here.
Step 1. Setup Filter Profile(s)
Create one or more user profiles, one for each group of devices that will share the same filtering settings. For instance, you may want to setup a profile for each classroom, team or sub-group within a classroom.
Mobicip's powerful web filter can be enabled on a variety of devices in a school or business, and managed centrally at mobicip.com (or using the iOS/Android monitor apps). Follow the tutorials below to get setup on each device type:
Mobicip provides advanced parental controls for Mac OS X that allows you to create a safe and secure Internet experience for young users. Follow these steps from an 'Administrator' account on the Mac to get setup:
1. Download the packager and open it. Accept any warning messages, then review and accept the terms and conditions to install the app.
Yay! It is now possible to monitor not only internet usage, but also manage apps on your family's iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (and Android devices too! Learn more). The feature is available for all Premium devices enabled using your Mobicip account. To get setup, follow the steps below:
1. Enable Safari on the iOS device that you wish to monitor.
There may be instances when you want Mobicip's filtering to be disabled completely. For instance, your school network may already have filtering in place, and lets say you want Mobicip to kick in only when the device is off the school network. This is particularly useful in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) scenario, and is often recommended by the school or network administrators.
