Mobicip is pronounced mo-be-sip and is named after CIPA — The Children's Internet Protection Act enacted by Congress in 2000. Today, kids get their first mobile and connected device at an average age of 10 years old. Mobicip ensures that kids can browse the internet safely and aims to provide a productive online environment.
Mobicip's filters work on several internet browsers such as Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and more. Additionally, Mobicip's internet filter scans websites in real-time, blocks adult websites, and only allows age-appropriate content for each child. Plus, parents can block specific apps, limit screen time, and enable a location tracker.
It's simple to download, sign up, and customize settings on Mobicip for the iPhone. Mobicip has a smart internet filter that sorts through explicit content, forces YouTube restricted mode through a browser, and allows for safe search to be locked on Safari, Chrome, and other website browsers. If necessary, parents can block individual websites and content categories — such as gambling, violence, adult content, and more.
Additionally, parents can set time control blocks on internet browsers and apps, allowing parents to enforce homework time, dinner time, bedtime, and even family time. Parents can set recurring daily/weekly screen time schedules and instantly lock all family devices.
Mobicip offers two plans: The Standard and The Enterprise.
For parents who are tired of calling to find out where their kids are, Mobicip allows parents to enable a location tracker on their child's mobile device. With just a single tap, parents will be shown their child's last known location. This feature often gives parents peace-of-mind and ensures kids make it to their destination safely. Plus, it can come in handy when finding a lost device.
One downside to Mobicip is the fact that it doesn't send text alerts about a child's activity. Parents will have to access the parent portal by going online or opening up their mobile app. Parents can set up email alerts; however, most people are likely to ignore email alerts.
