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.
