Circle has included popular online platforms that help make filtering the content easy.
The Platforms that are available for customization differ by Filter Level, with Pre-K being the most restrictive and Adult being the most expansive.
Last week was the much ballyhooed debut of the i Phone 5S and 5C along with i OS 7.
i OS is the Apple operating system for mobile devices.
In my presentations to parents, I list a handful of apps; however, you have to understand that there are literally millions of apps available and, even those apps where the intended purpose by the app’s creator may be innocent, can be used dangerously.
In order to allow access to only sites, you had to install a kid-safe browser, and restrict Safari completely.
Circle currently supports the following default Platforms across the various filter levels: Additionally, Circle watches many other platforms, but does not display them by default in the list.
When they are visited by a device connected to your Circle, they will automatically join the list.
Another option is to restrict your child's access to these apps -- both the i Phone and Android devices have parental settings that you can use to block certain types of activity.
For parents who want to track their kids, there are activity monitors like Net Nanny and Snoop Stick.
