The limitless nature of the Internet, coupled with the naivety of our children, leaves them more prone than ever to collateral damage. I’m speaking about the effects simple misunderstandings, spelling errors, and the like that can expose our little ones to a wide array of inappropriate content.
As you know, a simple Google image search can turn up things that would make grown men blush. The beauty of the Web is that you can find pretty much anything, but that doesn’t mean that everything is appropriate for everyone.
Sadly, we also know there are criminals, deviants and sexual predators that are actively targeting children who browse the web. More and more each year, kids are accessing content online that is loaded with viruses and malware that track and even locate the user. As parents, it’s up to you to ensure that your child doesn’t wander into the streets of the wild web alone.
That’s why Cocoon has partnered up with the KlaasKids Foundation to create tools for parents so that parents can provide their children with a safe online experience. While immediately giving parents a tool to manage which websites their kids can access, a top priority of the collaboration will be creation of a parent-sourced “white list” of recommended websites. This tool will join Cocoon’s other online security and privacy tools.
