Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2012
Funamo today is proud to announce that Funamo Parental Control software is now available for all Kindle Fire tablets, including the original Kindle Fire and the newly released Kindle Fire Generation 2 and Kindle Fire HD. It can be downloaded from Funamo website under Parental Control for Kindle Fire section where detailed instructions and video tutorials can be found as well.
Amazon Kindle Fire tablets come with a built-in parental control feature which only restricts App Store purchases and WiFi access. The recently announced FreeTime adds a nice touch by allowing parents to limit how much time a child spends on certain activities. However, it only supports three categories, books, videos and apps, and parents cannot set limit for individual apps. It also does not address the number 1 concern for parents – online safety.
"With price as low as $159, Kindle Fire makes it a very compelling choice for kids,” said Howard Li, Funamo’s founder and CEO. “Funamo Parental Control now makes the Kindle Fire tablets safe for your kids by providing comprehensive protection with web filtering, application control and device monitoring.
Funamo’s patent-pending web filtering technology is designed and optimized for mobile devices. It blocks inappropriate web sites and enforces SafeSearch for major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, even Youtube videos. Parents can customize web filtering with their own blacklist and whitelist, or choose the whitelist-only mode if they want to keep a very tight control.
Besides web filtering, Funamo also provides comprehensive protection with device monitoring and application control. Parents can keep track of all the device activities, including contacts, web browsing history and application usage, from any web browser 24/7. Application control allows parents to set password and specify time limit for selected applications. Unlike FreeTime, parents can pick individual apps rather than block the whole app category.
Funamo Parental Control for Kindle Fire can be downloaded from Funamo website for a two-day free evaluation. A license can be purchased on Funamo website for $19.99 which protects the device for as long as the user owns it. No subscription, no monthly fees. Now for as little as the price of a book, parents can have peace of mind with their kids' Kindle Fire tablets.
