Shloke Sarkar

Microsoft will be rolling out a new feature for its Chromium-based Edge browser, This web browser update will make Edge a bit safer for kids using it. As per certain reports, the company is going to introduce a Kids Mode in Microsoft Edge.

When it will be rolled out, it will enable safer searching for kids, so that they can browse the internet without stumbling upon content that is not suitable for children.

Do note that this is not available widely, rather, it is being rolled out to Edge insiders who are part of the company’s Canary test channel. Additional reports suggest that the feature will be made available to the company’s Dev Channel soon.

News of this update comes a few weeks after Edge Version 90 was being tested, wherein the company has tweaked the download tab of the browser, so as to enable the users to take a look at their downloads without the bar taking up the entirety of the screen.

Earlier, the downloads tab used to take up the entirety of the screen, resulting in a block for users wishing to do work whilst keeping an eye on their downloads.

In terms of how the new Kids feature will be available, users will be able to launch this special mode by selecting it via the Profile Picker, part of the Edge web browser. Users will be required to enter the device password for closing the Kids Mode, or for allowing a particular exemption to a certain page.

The Kids Mode will also feature custom browser themes, Bing SafeSearch, which will enable a blocker so that the kids are away from adult content, as well as add an ‘allow’ list that the parents can add certain sites to.

As per reports by ZDNet, the Kids mode will make child-friendly content available to users on the New Tab page, complete with tracking prevention and InPrivate modes.
