Mobicip announced Mobicip.com Premium, a user-friendly web-based parental control service with four layers of protection that allows parents of children with iPhones, iPod Touches and Netbooks to track Internet usage and ensure they are protected from inappropriate content.
For $9.99 per year, the Mobicip.com service allows parents to protect their children while they browse on their mobile devices – often times away from direct supervision. Parents can start using the service immediately by choosing from three predefined age-appropriate content filtering levels (elementary, middle school, high school) derived from education-class technology standards that meet Federal Child Information Protection Act (CIPA) requirements. After that, they can easily customize disallowed categories, and build their own list of allowed and disallowed websites.
Using four stages of content filtering technology, Mobicip.com blocks inappropriate content and tagged photos even on allowed Websites, putting parents at ease when their children are browsing the Internet. The service also features a Web site that parents can use to track Internet surfing history and to adjust their parental controls. For simplicity, adjustments are applied to all the mobile devices that are covered under the Mobicip.com service.
Built leveraging Amazon’s EC2 Cloud Architecture, Mobicip’s software solution is the first to bring an enterprise-class software as a service (SaaS) model to content filtering, making it one of the most extensive parental control solutions available.
