Raising healthy and happy children in the digital age is a challenge for most parents. The use of smartphones, computers, and tablets for learning and communication has exploded. Most schools have integrated devices into their curriculum. Younger children get exposed to information that is far beyond their capacity to handle. This leads to technology addiction, internet/social media obsession, exposure to profanity & violence in games, exposure to mature content and unhealthy themes, online harassment & cyber-bullying, peer pressure, and other related behavioral/health concerns.
Mobicip, as the pioneer in mobile parental controls, has been at the forefront of innovation and our award-winning content filtering is a clear testament to that. From being “just a safe browser” and a very popular one at that, it has now evolved into a holistic parental control tool. After months of heavy lifting and R&D, we are excited to introduce you to the all-new Mobicip Parental Control App. (Existing users, please check out how the update might affect your user experience.)
Limit Screen Time NEW!
Mobicip allows you to setup a practical and healthy screen time schedule for your children. You can lock family devices as per schedule to ensure quality sleep, limit digital/screen addiction, practice safe driving, and have distraction-free study time.
Care for quality, gadget-free, family conversation during dinner? Check out the Family Time for All feature, which locks down all devices instantly.
Track Location NEW!
Tired of constantly checking on your kids to see if they reached school or a friend’s home safely?
Mobicip’s Location Tracker is designed to offer parents well-deserved peace of mind. You can instantly locate your children and check on their whereabouts with a simple tap. You can also use this tool to find lost devices. Here’s a quick, simple, and nagging-proof way of keeping tabs on your child’s location.
Manage Apps & Games NEW!
Concerned about apps or games that your child has access to? Violent games, anonymous messaging apps, and dangerous/viral online challenges are warning signals.
Using Mobicip’s Manage Apps and Games feature, you can keep an eye on apps that your children use, and restrict their use based on your family rules. Keeping up with the need for pre-emptive intervention in modern parenting, it allows you to block inappropriate apps even before they are downloaded!
Mobicip’s best-in-class award-winning filtering technology allows only age-appropriate websites and blocks all other content. Mobicip can now filter Safari, Chrome & other browsers. (Save your Mobicip Browser bookmarks before updating!) While Mobicip provides suggested filtering levels based on extensive parental feedback, you can customize the filtering categories based on your requirements. Draw a healthy boundary around the web and create a productive learning environment by keeping kids safe online and on task. Our advanced internet filter scans websites in real-time for inappropriate content, going far beyond traditional URL and keyword searches.
Supervise Videos NEW!
Supervise the video content your kids watch through popular streaming services. Control or limit streaming services your child has access to.
View your family's browsing history on the go, at your convenience. With rich reporting that shows the title, image, or video, check what was seen at a glance. Set up weekly or daily email reports to receive an overview of browsing trends in your inbox.
Invite Co-Parent NEW!
Invite another parent (or parents, or guardian, or babysitter, or anyone you share parenting duties with). Mobicip can be used in Parent Mode on any number of devices, giving only the required level of the access and controls. Work together as a team to educate your kids on the values of digital citizenship.
