Microsoft Edge will have a Kids Mode very soon
It is increasingly common to see minors freely browsing the Internet, in fact, it is not necessary to go very far, just entering TikTok or Instagram is enough. Now Microsoft Edge will have a Kids Mode to protect them from the dangers of the network.
With online classes, many minors are exposed to the Internet more or less consciously and the vast majority of parents do not know how to deal with this situation.
Parental controls for applications, games and browsers are almost never activated, which is why Microsoft Edge is testing a mode exclusively to be used by children. It is a somewhat special age and a safe way for young and old to enjoy the benefits of the Internet.
Entering more fully into the characteristics of the Edge Kids Mode, we know that Microsoft is testing it now and has Bing SafeSearch activado. This ensures complete protection of the minor on the Internet, since it establishes a strict prevention mode within the browser.
This new Kids Mode is aimed at minors of between 5 and 12 years and launches through Edge’s profile picker. It is not a child account, but another kind of profile where the mode would be activated automatically, after configuration.
It is taken for granted that a child of that age does not have a computer for individual use, but may possibly share it with other siblings or parents. Then you would have to know how to activate the profiles on a shared computer.
No matter how strict the Children Mode is, if the minor wants to enter a website that we know is suitable for him, but the system blocks it, we can grant the permission. Adults will be able to configure which sites the system has to block and which ones they can give access. To exit Kids Mode, a password will be required.
How we say Edge’s Kids Mode is in the testing phase, so little by little more details will come out and with the comments of the users they will reinforce and improve some aspects. There are no details of its departure date, or its interface, or information about its configuration, they are just rumors.
