3 Safest Kids Search Engines
Kiddle.co is self-described as a “safe visual search engine for kids” that was created by Google. Basically, Kiddle functions similarly to Google and presents the same relevant content and resources. However, it has a safe search filter that enables parents and educators to feel confident that kids won’t be exposed to inappropriate content. What makes Kiddle unique is that it’s highly visual, so kids can easily navigate the search results. Another unique feature is that if a child searches an innappropriate search term, an error page will pop up and not allow them to view the content. The censored search terms are established by Google so parents don’t have to worry about setting parental controls. Check it out at kiddle.co.
KidRex was founded in 2016 and is also powered by Google, as an independent organization (a division of Brent Media). It’s self-described as a “safe search for kids, by kids.” KidRex’s appealing interface is a great way for kids to get their feet wet when it comes to internet searches. This search engine goes beyond just addressing any concerns parents and school officials may have in regards to internet browsing with its unique interface.
Wacky Safe is Microsoft’s equivalent to Kiddle, except that this search engine comes in the form of an app for PCs and Android phones. Wacky Safe is a self-described “ultra-safe” browsing environment that gives parents and educators piece of mind. Aside from aggregating only kid-friendly content, it also blocks and filters the same malicious or inappropriate websites that would be blocked by parental control features without manually adding search filters.
