Making smartphones safe for children

Kids today spend a lot of time on their smartphones and other mobile devices. But the internet isn’t a safe place. Unfiltered, it can expose minors and youth to a world of unsavory and unsafe content. Inappropriate websites pose significant risks and safety challenges for parents and children.

Smartphones, however, help families stay in touch, and many parents want their children to have one — especially in emergencies. At the same time, parents need to monitor usage, prevent online purchases and restrict access to inappropriate sites.

Below is some stats on measures parents take to keep an eye on and safeguard their children using mobile devices.

Build one safer than the competition’s

Keeping kids safe on their smartphones requires software and settings most parents can’t manage. Some devices make installation, setup and monitoring even more difficult.

SafeDNS offers smartphone manufacturers an easily accessible, high-quality and innovative solution for making their mobile devices safe for everyone - especially kids. 

Integrate SafeDNS into your mobile devices by redirecting DNS queries of your mobile device users to SafeDNS filtering servers so that only safe, relevant and child-appropriate content is avalable to these users.

Ways to integrate SafeDNS in smartphone OS

To protect mobile device users and implement filtering policies for managing and monitoring internet access, SafeDNS offers the following technological options. Choose the most appropriate of them. 

SAFE BROWSING API

This option allows you to implement protection at the level of any internet browser. In addition, the option allows you to integrate protection of internet connections into any other application - on condition that the OS owner defines an appropriate policy for developers of third-party apps to support such protection. 

Currently, this mechanism is not implemented yet. However, it can be launched in the cloud of a mobile operator in a short period of time. Or a code for this subsystem can be implemented directly by the OS developers

CATEGORIZATION API

This option allows you to integrate internet protection and control into a standard Android OS browser, included in the standard package.

The main limitation of this option is there is an additional application management subsystem necessary to exclude a possibility of installing other internet browsers

VIRTUAL VPN-BASED SOLUTION

This option allows you to protect all internet applications in your mobile device.

However, using this option leads to the loss of an ability to filter at the URL level 


Together with the OS developers, SafeDNS is ready to develop hybrid variants that maximize the number of advantages of the proposed solutions by combining several integration options.
