I've installed metacert on my child's iPad. I deleted safari and blocked google and
I was able to block inappropriate searches and images by installing Metacert, putting appropriate settings on strictest, and deleting Safari. I found the Metacert search engine to be clunky and slow and the print was tiny so preferred to use google. As said, Metacert on google did block inappropriate searches and images but when I clicked on shopping, it was obvious it didn't block shopping content that was inappropriate (try searching for *** and you'll see what I mean). Can we add a feature to somehow block that??
I’m sorry about the confusion about the MetaCert search engine. This is a new engine designed just for kids – we are going to update the page to make this obvious.
We currently only help you block pornography. But we are adding shopping and 19 other categories to our safe browsing preferences. It won’t block every shopping site as that would be impossible to get right – but we will make it much more difficult to kids to access shopping sites. I hope to have this in a few weeks.
Thanks for getting in touch.
Would you please give directors for removing other search engines? If something like Safari is still there, the kids will use it. Thank you.
