Provides two search profiles for parents and children respectively to keep the family’s search activities separated and safe.
Parents working-from-home, and children learning virtually at home, has become the reality for families all over the world. The development of virtual workplace and e-learning technologies means that now more than ever, families are sharing devices. However, adults don’t want their kids to see the content of their searches, especially if the topics are not appropriate for minors. There is a great need to segregate Internet browsing activities between their children and themselves, while they share the same device and same browser.
After the extension has been added to your Chrome browser and activated for the first time, the parent user is instructed to create and customize the two profiles.
As a parent and adult user, you will be given the opportunity to enter your birth year and set your profile password once the extension has been activated for the first time. Your password prevents your kids from switching to your profile and potentially being exposed to inappropriate content. Therefore, we strongly recommend the use of a password.
Inside the children’s profile, we support Kiddle (default), KidRex, WackySafe, Kid’s Search, and Safe Search Kids. They help filter out inappropriate content and present your kids with an easy-to-use and safe environment.
Inside the parents’ profile, we support Yahoo, Google, Bing, Yandex, and Baidu.
