How does Child-Safe Mode work? (PRO)

Child-Safe Mode is an available setting in the Symbaloo PRO Webspace Dashboard. It disables certain functionalities but ensures full compliance with the United States Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which protects the online privacy of children under 13.

* Behavioral advertising uses browsing history and cookies to serve personalized ads to users. Child-Safe Mode replaces behavioral advertising with contextual advertising, which does not use personal information to serve ads.

With Child-Safe Mode enabled, the Webspace administrators will not be able to use features like Groups or Collaboration on Webmixes effectively. However, it does ensure that no personal information is collected from Webspace visitors.
