Microsoft announced it is backing Safer Internet Day with the launch of a customized version of its popular browser software, Internet Explorer, promising safer surfing for children.
Child-safe Internet Explorer
Microsoft’s IE team has launched a new version of Internet Explorer 8 that makes it easy for youngsters to report inappropriate online behavior and find information about staying safe online. The browser is an enhanced version of Internet Explorer 8, gives youngsters and families one-click access to reporting tools that allow them to flag inappropriate websites to the authorities, and seek help and advice on how to cope with cyberbullying or unwanted online attention.
Microsoft has developed the Internet Explorer Click Clever, Click Safe browser in association with Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (COEP), as a part of Safer Internet Day, so as to promote online safety for families.
Matthew Bishop, marketing officer at Microsoft, said: “
“As a father myself, online safety is an issue very close to my heart, which is why I am personally committed to making sure we develop the right tools to help make the internet a safer place.”
