The search engine uses Google safe search and human editors to ensure that sites appearing in Kiddle search results satisfy family friendly requirements, as it filter sites with explicit or deceptive content. Kiddle is powered by Google Safe Search but is not affiliated with Google Inc.
The graphic search engine, which has no relation to Google says it handpicks results from their search from day-to-day sites which might not be written specifically for kids. The human editors ensure the results are safe for kids and it also simplifies other content on sites with important information. Kiddle also illustrates the search results with big thumbnails so kids can not only identify the results but also enjoy looking at the safe graphics.
“Most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don’t read as fast as adults,” the site founders say.
The site also has large arial fonts in the search results for better readability for kids and it also does not collect any personally identifiable information, and its logs are deleted every 24 hours.
Parents or guardians can also request for specific keywords or websites to be blocked by the team.
