Search engines Play Store and parents: how to control what apps are listed

Content filtering puts you in control of what you (or your own kids) can see in Google Play.

Smartphones and pills can be a great match for the kids. Open up Google Play, and you’ll find there are plenty of academic apps and entertainment apps, and even clever applications which have managed to combine both at once. You’ll find a lot of things you want to uncover your young ones to, and they’ll be better for it.

You’ll also notice that there are plenty of things in Google Play that you might not want your child to see. While Google doesn’t permit things like hate speech or outright pornography in Google Play apps (see the content suggestions here), things like “fictional” assault or suggestive imagery, or apps that can share your location, are permitted. You need to be aware of these apps if you choose to maintain your kids away from them.
