COPY & PASTE
Disable Safari, YouTube and the App Store (Settings > General > Restrictions) and setup Mobicip as the default browser.
Set your filtering level at Elementary, Middle or High School, or at the 'No Filtering - Reports Only' level.
The school filtering levels apply filtering standards used by K-12 school systems. The filter uses a combination of methods to keep your child safe, including strict safe search, categorization, and intelligent real-time content analysis.
STRICT SAFE SEARCH
Kids most often encounter inappropriate content by accident through search. Mobicip enforces strict safe search on all popular search engines.
Mobicip categorizes every accessed website against a master category database. Database updates are pushed out constantly behind the scenes to stay ahead of threats.
INTELLIGENT REAL-TIME ANALYSIS
Mobicip's intelligent real-time content filtering engine uses advanced heuristic algorithms to dynamically analyze and rate every single website, blog, or web content as it is accessed.
SUPPORTS 3G, EDGE, WiFi NETWORKS
FREQUENT BROWSER UPDATES
ONLINE TECHNICAL SUPPORT
"The look, feel and performance are terrific. I have noticed no difference between using this browser and Safari using both 3G as well as WiFi."
App Store Review by Laertides
The icky possibilities of the internet are endless and if Santa manages to put an iPod Touch on his sleigh for my kids this will be one of the first apps that I install.

Great tool, Excellent Service
Mobicip works as advertised with a wide variety of controls to deploy (unlike the so-called parental controls built into my WiFi which after attempting to deploy turned out to be a white-list only feature.) Set basic school-age levels, on/off times, white list, black-lis and key words. View reports or download them. Have them sent to you. You'll see that some very questionable sites were blocked, sites your kids might have accidentally stubled upon. Or sites you really don't want them to seek out. Check on on your kids browsing history from anywhere, anytime. I don't use it to spy on them - I tell them I have it on. I use to keep them honest - if I have reason to doubt their claims, we go to the reports.
When my daughter broke her iPad and it was replaced there was a hiccup with the transfer as it related to Mobicip. Their tech support was on it and had it worked out within 24 hours with barely any work from me.
Until Apple steps up and adds parental controls to Safari, Mobicip is our safe surfing tool.
Very Helpful - Safe Way for Kids to Browse
We have used Mobicip for several years when our boys were young and got their first mobile devices (iPods). We found out the hard way that it is very easy for kids to get to sites that are not appropriate on these devices! Don't let this happen with your kids! Be parents who allows their child the opportunity to have a mobile device while being able to set safe limits on it. With Mobicip, you can control what they are able to access online on their mobile devices. You are sent reports and can access your child's history online and this allows you to monitor what they have attempted to view and sites they have visited. This is a very helpful tool and allows children the enjoyment of having a mobile device while allowing parents the peace of mind knowing what they are able to browse on the device is within their control. We have recommended this app to many other parents and they have been just as satisfied!
Peace of mind!!!
I love this app! I was very hesitant about allowing my children to get ipod touches, but feel 100% better having the mobicip browser on their devices. It was the best filter I found. I found that I needed to pay for a premium membership, but at only $10/device/year, it is so worth it. I actually trust my children and am more worried about what they could accidentally stumble upon. I love the reports that show what sites they were blocked from. The reports either give me piece of mind, or if I find the filter is too restrictive, I can white list the particular site. My kids feel comfortable letting me know if they feel something is unnecessarily blocked, and I just add it in for them. They don't feel restricted, and I feel confident in their safe internet usage. A win-win!
As an aside, I had two start-up issues that I needed help with. Mobicip's customer support was extremely helpful and personable. Highly recommend! :)
