With internet safety continuing to be a concern for parents, a new site hopes to keep your children safe while on the web. Thursday Miss America launched her new kid friendly web browser.
It's a topic that's personal for Miss America who received lewd images in an email when she was just 13-years-old, after going in to an internet chat room. Now Lauren Nelson has launched a new kid friendly web browser.
The browser accesses over 10,000 web sites, all of them pre-screened to make sure that they had child appropriate content including thousands of sites that are helpful for doing homework and featuring educational games.
An animated Miss America Lauren Nelson is there to help guide your kids through the browser. Kids can also send an receive email from a parent approved buddy list. Best of all the web browser is free.
And according to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children an average of fifty children in the country every week fall prey to online predators.
