Microsoft is testing a new Kids Mode to make the Edge browser more reliable for kids. Although the feature is in the testing phase, it can be added to the browser with the stable version after a while.
Microsoft has begun testing a new feature in its Edge browser called Kids Mode that aims to provide a safe internet browsing experience for kids. Microsoft is currently offering this feature to Edge Insiders testers on the Dev and Canary channels. The feature will likely be widely available soon.
More reliable search experience with Kids Mode on Edge
No login is required to enable Kids Mode in the Edge browser, but you need to enter the device’s PIN or password to exit the mode. Kids Mode can be activated by tapping on the profile switcher option in the top right corner and selecting “Browse in Kids Mode” from the drop-down menu.
If you enable Kids Mode by signing in to the browser, Microsoft will sync settings such as the child age group and list of blocked websites across all your devices. The company offers the new mode generally for children between the ages of 5-12, but it is seen as two different options, 5-8 years old and 9-12 years old. A simpler browser view is obtained when only 5-8 years old is selected between the two options.
Kids Mode will make new customized themes and kid-friendly content available on the New Tab page. It will also include tracking blocking, Incognito Mode, and privacy and security features like Bing Safe Search, which filters adult text, images and videos from search results.
