The internet can be a wonderful place filled with all sorts of educational information, but it can also be a dangerous place with questionable content. If you’re a parent with a kid and you’re trying to protect their online activities, then Microsoft might be able to help with its Edge browser that they’ve recently updated with a Kids Mode.
According to Microsoft, “Kids Mode limits the sites that kids will have access to – from the get-go there are about 70 popular kid sites that are allowed, but you can fully customize the list in a couple of clicks in Microsoft Edge settings. If your kid tries to navigate to a site outside of that allowed list, they’ll be greeted with a friendly block page, encouraging them to either ask for permission or try navigating elsewhere.”
During the setup process, parents can choose the age group that their kids fall under and will cater the browsing experience accordingly. For example, those under the 9-12 age group will be given access to articles from MSN for Kids that will provide educational and informative articles on a variety of topics.
In addition to protective features, Kids Mode in Edge has also been designed to look bright, colorful, and fun, and has been purposely created to make it look like a completely different browser. The feature should already be live so if you have Edge, all you need to do is launch it to check it out.
