Rabat – Telecommunications company INWI has partnered with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to show its commitment to protecting Moroccan children from the potentially harmful impact of the Internet.
Following its awareness campaign launched one year ago, INWI is still upgrading its devices to control children’s ability to reach inappropriate aspects of the Internet such as violent imagery, chatting with strangers, and game addiction.
INWI described the challenge that Moroccan parents confront in teaching their children to use the Internet, which the company said could be dangerous to society and may negatively affect children in the future.
“Nowadays, there is a real social debate about potential dangers that may damage children such as violence, addiction and problems that are related to security and private protection,” INWI said.
Since 2014, INWI has provided parents with parental control devices in order to monitor the actions of children and teenagers, including management of connection times, contacts, and visited pages.
The devices have monitored users on behalf parents to shield them from the harmful aspects of the Internet.
To follow its pedagogics program, INWI signed a partnership with parental control and Internet filtering for Android Xooloo, offering a private portal for children aged 7 to 12 years, through which they can reach 10,000 sites validated by expert psychologists.
