The recently launched “Kiddle” promises to keep kids safe in their internet searching.

Google has recently launched a kid-friendly search engine that promises to all but eliminate the possibility of your child stumbling upon inappropriate content on the internet.

Kiddle has lots of child friendly tweaks of the usual Google search interface we are all now familiar with.  For instance, users are met with a fun outer space theme with a robot alien near the search bar, as opposed to the clean white background that is usually associated with a Google search.

According to Tech Times, Kiddle offers search results hand-picked by editors to ensure their kid-friendliness. Search results themselves work in a staggered way with regards to their origins.

The first one to three results will always be curated by the editors.  These sites are all guaranteed safe sites with information written for children.

The next few results will feature sites in simple language that will be easy for kids to understand.

The rest will be listed results will be sites tailored to adults, but are still filtered by Google safe search – ensuring no inappropriate content is displayed.

Kiddle promises your child will be safe in their searching.  The ‘about’ section lists that logs are cleared every 24 hours and that Kiddle collects no personal information.

Kiddle could just be the guard dog that every parent is looking for to help keep children from being exposed to inappropriate content.

  • I’ve thrown a few queries into Kiddle, based on what my children are currently studying at school at various ages. It took a few seconds longer than Google to bring up results, but that could have been my connection tonight. I was pleased with the functionality of the site, and think it’ll be ideal in some situations. For my older teens, I think it might be too restrictive on certain topics because of the search terms it blocks, but for my younger kids, it may be that extra pair of eyes that I try and have anyway.

  • As long as there isn’t advertising directed at children, it should be a good browser.

  • Neither of ours have used a kiddle yet. It concerns me what they can find on YouTube. I often impose a ban when I am unable to supervise its use for any reason

  • Great idea!
    So much nasty stuff could be found previously through seemingly innocent searches, its quite disturbing.
