Microsoft is bringing a new feature to Edge called Kids Mode, which is meant to provide a kid-friendly internet environment for children by ensuring safe and customized browsing. The feature has not rolled out widely yet, as it is only available to Edge Insiders in Microsoft’s Canary test channel.
Many services and devices offer a Kids Mode to help customize content for children, like Netflix’s Just for Kids and Amazon’s FreeTime Service.
To turn on the Kids Mode in Edge, you would need to go to the Profile picker and enable the option. With the Kids Mode, several features can be accessed, such as custom browser themes, Bing SafeSearch to keep kids away from “adult” search results, and an “allow list” that would help parents set appropriate websites for their children. The allow list is predefined, but can be edited from settings in the “family” section.
Having a Kids Mode on Microsoft Edge will definitely save parents from the hassle of constantly choosing and filtering through content for their kids.
