Manage safe Internet access for young children

With the current pace of social development, the  Internet  is no longer an unfamiliar term for us from the elderly to the very young. Anyone can access the internet to find the information they need.

The internet can be both productive as well as detrimental to the interests of young children. While platforms like RARBG can help them download everything from educational materials to E-Books and Podcasts, other platforms can also lead to the showcasing of explicit content. Parents need to teach their kids about what they should and what they shouldn’t do while using the internet. Proper training and strict monitoring is the only way to control the internet activities of kids.

We cannot deny that social networks bring many positive benefits to us, it helps us to expand our knowledge, connect people together, but besides that it also has unpredictable harms, especially especially young children, if adults like us do not know how to manage children to access the internet freely, it will lead to many bad consequences.

Here are some guidelines to help parents manage their children's safe internet access.

1. Google search engine

Anyone can go to the Google.com website to search for anything they want, and children are no exception. So, how to make this search engine safer for children? It's very simple, you just need to activate the SafeSearch Filter of this tool by visiting the link google.com/preferences or pressing the Settings button on the Google homepage and selecting Search settings.

Still on the settings page, you can also disable the quick result prediction function by clicking Never showinstant results to never display Instant results. This way, you can minimize results that are inaccurate, even the exact opposite of what your child is looking for. Finally, click Save to save it after the setup is complete.

In addition, you can also apply the same operations on mobile devices running Android and  iOS operating systems  through a number of available browsers to access the internet safely and effectively.
