You can find just about anything on the internet, which makes it one of the most important resources us humans have, but also a nightmare for parents. Microsoft is responding by introducing a Kids Mode for its Edge browser.
As Windows Central reports, Edge Insiders are just now getting a first taste of Kids Mode through the Dev and Canary channels. It’s pretty much what you’d expect from a web browser aimed at keeping children safe online. Bing SafeSearch is on by default and tracking prevention is set to strict mode.
Parents will have the option of creating an “allow list” for sites their kids can visit through the browser. By doing so, it can be adjusted as children grow up, but also hopefully per child if they are different ages. And it looks as though Microsoft sees Kids Mode as being the default state, as exiting it requires a password be entered. This is an easier way of ensuring Edge is always in a safe mode unless parents come along and exit out of it.
For kids, they can expect custom browser themes and “child-friendly” articles to be presented, assuming they stick to whatever the default homepage ends up being. But for now, it’s limited to use by Insiders and Microsoft will continue to tweak how it works and what features it includes before rolling it out more widely and potentially as a standard feature of its browser.
