Kiddle makes web browsing safe for kids
Worried that your child might accidentally Google something not meant for kids when they borrow your smartphone or tablet? With Kiddle, that worry is addressed.
It is basically a new website that although isn’t made by Google, uses their “safe search” mode to filter results so only sites with non-explicit material could be viewed by children.
Once they type in queries, Kiddle will display the top three sites that are written and edited specifically for kids. Search results four to seven will feature simple language that the children will easily grasp and the following entries will still be filtered by Google’s safe search but are targeted towards adults since they could be harder for the young ones to comprehend.
In case your kid is a bit naughty and keys in bad words or sensitive phrases, Kiddle would not display any results and would ask that you search for other entries instead.
“Since Kiddle results are either handpicked and checked by our editors or filtered by Google safe search, you know you get kid-oriented results without any explicit content. In case some bad words are present in a search query, our guard robot will block the search,” their official page reads.
So if you’re worried your kid might be searching for things he still shouldn’t be seeing, you might want to try Kiddle the next time you lend your device to him.
