The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by the US Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet (specifically pornography). CIPA imposes requirements on both schools and public libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications services and products more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. The latest updates to this rule were made in 2011. If you are a school or public library you can find more details here: https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act
While CIPA has to be ceritified by the school or library, CleanBrowsing can be used as part of the technical stack to help demonstrate compliance.
CleanBrowsing provides protection measures that block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). This is a specific CIPA requirement designed to ensure safe online experiences for students. CleanBrowsing can also be used to monitor the online activities of minors, another CIPA requirement.
CleanBrowsing offers both: blocking and filtering features via it's DNS content filtering service. Schools and libraries have the option to use predefined filters, or create their own rules. Features include:
CleanBrowsing provides a robust monitoring platform. Via its dashboard, a network administrator is able to quickly identify, and monitor all activity on its network.

The system allows a network administrator to perform the following functions:
CleanBrowsing provides the most comprehensive deployment of safe mode features for platforms like Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo and many other service providers. This is done in an effort to ensure the safest browsing experience for minors.
