Canadian app protects children from mobile porn

Posted by Rob Lewis

Vancouver startup Social Scanner is doing their best to protect children from inappropriate content on mobile devices and today received an endorsement from the New York Times today for their Ranger Browser mobile app.

Ranger Browser is a fully customizable safe browser designed specially for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad as well as Android devices.

Mobile internet devices give our children unsupervised and unrestricted access to the intriguing world of the web. Unfortunately, the web has a dark side that makes our children vulnerable to inappropriate content, bullying and over-indulgence. Mobsafety provides mobile internet users with an effective web filtering browser that replaces Safari, and allows parents to choose the content filtering that the parent deems appropriate for each child.

Parents are able to access the browsing history and customize the Internet filter settings from anywhere in the World. The filtering system uses a combination of blacklists, combined with customizable whitelists to create a solid, reliable filtering system that is updated hourly.
