Feed Sponsor: curbi

Thanks to this week’s Six Colors sponsor, curbi. It’s an Internet content-filtering service for iOS that actually works, by using iOS profiles and VPN technology.

With curbi you get parental controls for Internet content on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It tracks (and can block) sites through any app, not just Safari, since it’s filtering at the network level. And it lets you set time boundaries: For example, you could block specific kinds of content during afternoon homework time, and everything when it’s bedtime.

Learn more about curbi here. There’s a 14-day free trial available, so you can check it out and see if it works for you and your family.
