Story sharing website Medium’s iOS App was optimised only for iPod Touch and iPhone when it came out two months ago. The App has been updated, and Medium for iOs goes Universal for iPad and iPad Mini as well.

In this age of information technology, kids around the world rely a lot on the Internet for their day-to-day activities. As a parent, you must be quite anxious about their safety online, as the chances of kids getting trapped by cyber bullies, revealing their personal identity or becoming distracted/misled by age-inappropriate content are high. Qustodio is a new browser that allows kids to surf the Web in a safe and secure environment.
Once you install the app in all the devices your kids use, you need to set Qustodio as the default browser to give it complete control over your children’s online activities. After you create your account, you can assign suitable avatars for your kids to have a separate profile for each of them. With a single Qustodio account you can connect to and monitor all your kids’ devices such as the PC, tablet, laptop and smartphone.
Qustodio is an all-in-one cyber safety tool to help parents keep their kids safe online. Using this app you can monitor and track all activities such as the websites viewed, search histories, keywords used in searches and a lot more. If you feel that your kids are spending too much of time on a particular website, you can set time limits for that particular website. You can select a specific category and block all websites under that particular category. At times when kids are unintentionally taken to blocked sites, Qustodio Safe Browser denies them access and keeps you informed through alerts.
Qustodio Safe Browser has highly customizable options. With this app you set different time schedules for Internet usage of each of your kids. With an Internet enabled device you can access, manage and monitor your Qustodio account from any part of the globe.
