As anyone with young kids can tell you, it is hard to monitor and limit their internet usage. It is not just website and content filtering, but things like time spent playing games or watching movies. Kids tend to be much smarter than we give them credit for. Anyhow, we may have just found the perfect solution: Kidokey.
The Kidokey box adds another layer of security and time-limits to kids’ internet activity. Again, though the box contains safeguards to keep kids on age-appropriate websites, it also includes a ton of other features.
We know that you don’t have time to check every site on the Internet so we have done the work for you. Every web site your kids can access has been reviewed by real people from our team, not a computer program. Kidokey comes with 100s of thousands of sites already reviewed by our team and you can also add/remove sites as you wish.1
In a nutshell, you simply plug the Kidokey box into your router, and it takes over the rest. Right out of the box, it comes pre-loaded with a huge set of approved websites and content. The Kidokey team utilizes a white-list system – meaning that only approved, or “white-listed” websites can be accessed. What’s more, it also comes loaded with a whole suite of time management tools:
Kidokey comes pre-set with sensible website controls and time management defaults that you can easily adjust to fit your family’s needs. A simple daily schedule shows what sites can be accessed and when…The Kidokey box filters everything on its Wi-Fi network, not just web pages. Using the Parent Dashboard, you can select what apps or games you want to allow access to and when.2
