Apple Discontinues KidSafe; Poll Asks Why

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Discontinues KidSafe; Poll Asks Why -- People relying on Apple's selection of child-friendly Internet services and the KidSafe extension for restricting access to other sites will have to turn to another service. Apple said it discontinued KidSafe due to low customer usage, though it's unclear why people chose not to use the service. Rather than us guessing, though, take a look at the TidBITS home page for this week's poll, which asks for your opinion of KidSafe - the results may reveal why too few people used it. If you've used KidSafe, you can remove it from your Mac by deleting the KidSafe extension from the Extensions folder and the KidSafe Sherlock plug-in from the Internet Search Sites folder. KidSafe's cancellation follows on the heels of iReview's demise last February. [ACE]
