5 Best Parental Control Applications You Should Have By Now Photo Credit: Bogdan I. Stanciu via Compfight cc A recent study by NPD Group for its Kids and CE: 2014, revealed that a huge number of children using mobile devices are accessing social media, videos, and playing games online. But, along with this increase in participation comes the fear of parents that they’ll stumble across content that isn’t suitable for their age. The good thing is that there are aids out there that protect children from sensitive content. Some devices come with built-in child protection features that filter the kind of content they can view.
