Safe Internet Site And Application for Kids

by - 3:46:00 PM


Parents can't watch their kids 24/7 and we are worried that our children might see unwanted video clips, images even articles that they should not see. Well, we don't have to worry about it because I'm sharing you the solution to this problem.

Google.com is the most popular and used search engine site worldwide and it's been pretty convenient to all of the people looking for places, food recipes, answers, tutorials and everything under the sun. However, not all of the result searched on the internet are good for our kids.

Kiddle, powered by Google safe search but not owned by them, features an outer space theme, complete with planets off in the distance, along with a robotic alien under the search bar that lives on the crater-filled planet seen in the forefront.


According to TechtimesKiddle is the visual search engine for kids that is powered by editors and Google safe search, allows kids to do a Web, images, news or video search. Once a child enters a query into the search bar, Kiddle will pull up a list of related links. The first one to three results will include safe sites and pages that are written specifically for kids that are handpicked and checked by the editors. The next four to seven results will feature sites that include content that is written in simple language so that young children are able to comprehend what they are researching. These too are handpicked and checked by the editors. Results eight and onward include sites written for adults that are still filtered by Google safe search but are a bit harder for children to comprehend.

Since Kiddle results are either handpicked and checked by their 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, the guard robot will block the search. I tried it on myself and I typed twerk in the search box and it shows an error or no result at all. Pretty good job right?


Another site that is also popular is Youtube and with this latest application, you don't have to worry if your child accidentally watched men fighting or people saying curse/bad words.


Youtube Kids is an application available in Android and IOS devices, complete with a simplified design, a curated selection of kid-safe content, parental controls, and more.

According to Shimrit Ben-Yair, Group Product Manager at YouTube Kids, the new app has been in development over the past year, and follows 200% year-over-year growth in the family entertainment sector on YouTube, she says.

While the company declined to share how many videos were available in the app at launch, Ben-Yair would say that there are “thousands” of channels on YouTube Kids. These channels include a mix between content from well-known children’s entertainment brands like DreamWorks TV, Jim Henson TV, Mother Goose Club, Talking Tom and Friends, National Geographic Kids, Reading Rainbow, and Thomas the Tank Engine, for example, and other shows from YouTubers like Vlogbrothers and Stampylonghead.

Google says that the app includes a “brighter and bigger interface” that’s meant to work better for “small thumbs and pudgy fingers.” That is, the app has big buttons kids tap on to reach dedicated sections in the app, including “Shows,” “Music,” “Learning,” and “Explore,” as indicated by icons of a play button, radio, lightbulb and binoculars, respectively. Watch the video below.

Know more how to use this application from their parental guide. I'm sure a lot of parents will love this two new site and application for our kids. No more worries if your child wants to use the tablet, computer or your cellphone. Thanks to the people who develop this for our children to have a better learning while enjoying the technology.

  13. Very interesting, I think it is important for children to be protected by the "wonders" of the internet, as in these days they get access to computers/smartphones from a very young age. And it is important to protect their innocence for as long as you can.

  16. This is what my kids and pamangkins need! I once walked in on my kids and pamangkin watching this really morbid parody of a cereal commercial wherein the rabbit isn't allowed to have cereal cause said food is "just for kids" and he pulls out a gun and shoots them. :(

  22. I believe that kids are living in a completely different times. Keeping the internet away from them is not a solution, the solution goes for more protection and also for more laws regarding the internet. Very nice post
