The app store also offers more than 50 other "private" browsers that keep no web history and allows unrestricted browsing. There is no inappropriate content within any of those apps either, yet they are ALL rated 17+.
I see no difference between them and the GOOGLE mobile app.
Yes, I can block all app purchases and downloads, including the google app, but if the age ratings were correct I would not need to resort to even further draconian measures to at least attempt to keep inappropriate content of our devices.
The rating may be by agreement between Apple and Google. I would suggest you send them both feedback on the matter:
For now, other than removing the Google Mobile app and not allowing your children to install apps without your approval, there isn't a solution for this issue.
This is another case to prove my point. Control of the "Networking traffic" must be controlled. I'm trying to learn how to VPN into my home-stationed UTM and control all outgoing and incoming packets. No such luck getting that help so far, but it seems that this would solve your problem better than even the software on his computer could. URL blocking via the central UTM.
thats not the only problem.(google)if u get a app with its own browser its going to avoid the filter.lets say k9 filter in will only fully protect the ipad from going on bad sites(not kids sites)if apple will installa fillter on the ipads opreathing system!!
i hope apple one day will put on like parental controls on the ipad iphone itouch
sorry for mispelling anything,
Any device that accesses the internet, just like a computer poses dangers to children.
Perhaps the answer isn't for Apple to somehow allow for safe browsing, but rather it is up to the parents to properly supervise their children. Children should be supervised while browsing the internet on a home computer, even with parental controls activated (children are quite expert at deactivating these), and shouldn't be using iOS devises unsupervised.
If you're not old enough to browse the internet unsupervised, you shouldn't be given iOS devices to be used unsupervised.
