How is it Safe ?
sites appearing in Kiddle search results satisfy family friendly requirements, as we filter sites with explicit or deceptive content.
It’s USP is in Kids-oriented results:
Safe sites and pages written specifically for kids. Handpicked and checked by Kiddle editors.
Since Kiddle results are either handpicked and checked by our editors or filtered by Google safe search, you know you get kid-oriented results without any explicit content. In case some bad words are present in a search query, our guard robot will block the search.
2) Big thumbnails: most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don’t read as fast as adults.
3) Large Arial font in Kiddle search results provides better readability for kids.
4) Privacy: The engine does not collect any personally identifiable information, and the logs are deleted every 24 hours.
Not So Good
There is still a lot of terms apart from some bad terms that you can’t find on Kiddle. It all boils down to their filters and I guess if a site is submitted to them or not. They Kiddle team needs to gear up and fast, as the news of the search engine spreads and people return with not getting what they were searching for, it might just fall back on them. But of they do get their act right quickly, this will be a boon for parents and student.
When I stumbled on Kiddle by chance I realised there were other kid-safe search engines also available.
Are these good or is Kiddle better? Only more usage will tell. But as of now I am in a safe zone and while there is much work left, we are at least stepping in the right direction.
