Kids use a lot of different websites and products that can sometimes be hard to keep up with. Many of these websites have good, useful things on them. However, these same websites can have unwanted content such as pornography. Here are a few ways to activate filters on some of the most popular websites, apps and devices.
YouTube: YouTube has a “Safety Mode” that can be enabled to filter out unwanted videos. These are videos that Google has flagged or that have found pornographic images through their pornographic image detector. To activate Safety Mode:
Netflix: Netflix has settings that allow you to control what movies can be viewed and added to your queue. To activate these settings:
Google: Google uses Google SafeSearch to prevent unwanted websites from coming up when you search for something. To set it up:
Instagram: Instagram is set to publically share all photos that you post. To set your Instagram account to “Private”:
Apple Products: Apple products, such as iPhones and iPods, have settings that allow you to control restrictions on your child’s iPod. These settings can only be changed with a 4-digit passcode. To set up these restrictions:
While these settings aren’t perfect for filtering out everything on these websites, apps and devices, they are good starting points for protecting your children. For further protection, install NetNanny on your child’s devices to keep them from accessing inappropriate websites and to monitor your child’s behavior online.
