With over 1 billion websites out there, how do you narrow down which ones are harmful for your child?
At KoalaSafe, we categorize millions of websites and apps, making it easy for parents to allow or block them. But even we did not predict some of the up and coming threats parents have chosen to custom block from their children's internet access!
Here are the last year's most blocked websites:
Tumblr.com - a popular blogging platform where you can follow news, arts, inspirational quotes, but also stumble upon racy pictures and receive messages from strangers. The content is unmonitored and age requirement is 13.
Agar.io - of all the games this one is the most blocked. It's a simple game where you grow by eating smaller dots, but it can become very addictive and has many pop up advertisements.
Spotify.com - you have to be 18 years old to register for a Spotify account, or 13 with parental consent. It looks like most kids will have to wait until they are 18 to listen to music.
Omegle.com - video chatting with random strangers? Doesn’t lead to anything good.
Reddit.com - has a lot of great forum discussions that are sometimes led by celebrities, scholars and even our president. On the downside, it is notorious for rated R content.
