A raw, unfiltered Internet is no place to raise a family because pornography and malware is so rampant that it’s nearly impossible to avoid. Kibosh is a simple, and inexpensive way to make your Internet infinitely safer, faster and more reliable by instantly protecting every Internet capable device you own from pornography, malware, and phishing related websites.
Kibosh has invested over five years perfecting a cloud-based Internet content filtering service which delivers a fast family safe Internet with no impact to the Internet your used to. It works 24/7 silently ensuring your Internet is always Family Safe.
What makes Kibosh unique?
Simplicity: The Kibosh Router is a tool that solves a problem. Post setup it simply works, all the time, without pestering you to do this or that. The Internet will be family safe by default, so you don’t have to mess with trying to think of websites, terms, etc. There is nothing to monitor, no need to confront, nothing to forget or break.
For example, you are concerned about what little Johnny is looking at on the Internet – as you should be! However, once you have Kibosh Router in place you do not have to worry about this anymore because objectionable content is gone, as it if never existed. You can sit back and watch little Johnny search his heart out with no worries.
Sustainable: Anytime we humans have to continually go back, and check on something it’s doomed to failure. We designed the Kibosh solution to require zero maintenance post setup. There is nothing to install (and thus nothing that will fail over time), and once turned on, at the gateway, it will always ‘just work’.
100% effective: The Kibosh Filter works at the gateway to your Internet (your wireless router), and therefor will not miss any devices and it does not need to be installed. In 2020 we rebuild the rule engine to work off MAC addresses for 100% accuracy. In other words, when you schedule the Internet on device XYZ to turn off at 10.00 PM – it will turn off at 10.00 PM! Sounds simple, but this is rare in the parental control realm.
Just the bad stuff ma’am: Kibosh blocks the bad stuff, and only the bad stuff. Therefor, it’s good to be used by everyone in the home / office. The Kibosh Filter does not interfere with regular web browsing, or company VPN’s, etc.
Accurate: There are a lot of bad websites out there – you would be amazed. We designed a proprietary tool that continually searches out bad websites and ads them to our block lists. Over the years we’ve harvested hundreds of thousands, with new ones being added every day.
Safe Search: In addition to blocking the bad websites SafeSearch is enforced on Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, and optionally YouTube.
SafeSearch Lock-In ensures that only SafeSearch search engines can be used. This is turned on by default.
Cloud Filtering: One of the unique aspects of the Kibosh system is that the Internet filtering is performed on powerful geo-located servers in the cloud, and not on the device itself. By offloading this work the result for you is a blazing fast Internet experience, and instant security updates.
Internet Malware: Malware, or “malicious software,” describes any software program designed to damage or do other unwanted actions to a computer system. Common examples of malware include viruses and worms, such as Crypto Locker Viruses, any number of Java-base vulnerabilities, exploits in Web browsers like Internet Explorer, and literally millions more.
Internet Access Time Management: The Internet is a multimedia vehicle, and as such we want to control when it can be accessed. This is easily done from our Global Dashboard which can be accessed from any browser, anywhere in the world.
Support: need a little help? Kibosh Support will help you solve any Internet related issue you might be having.
How does the Kibosh Filter work?
When we search for Internet content we use a search engine like Google.com, or Bing.com. Post search, we will receive a few categories of Internet content. The number of categories will vary across search engines, but you will always get these three: Web, Image and Video.
When you click on one of the Web, Image or Video links you’ll get a list of best guess results.
With SafeSearch enabled Google, Bing, or DuckDuckGo will not allow the search for pornographic content:
If anything does slip through SafeSearch, or if someone tries to go directly to a bad website, our proprietary domain scraping engine ensures that it’s blocked.
In addition to the maintenance free elimination of objectionable Internet content you can also control what can be accessed via Parental Controls.
Global Dashboard Options:
- Block any website or app
- Block categories of websites
- Schedule access to the Internet per device
- Quickly see what devices are connected to your router
- Enable / disable YouTube SafeMode
- Enable / disable Ad Blocking
- Daily activity logs
- Monitor status of the Kibosh Router
Real time Categorization Engine (A.R.C.E.):
- The Internet is a dynamic entity, always changing and evolving. To stay on top of these changes we’ve developed the A.R.C.E. (Adaptive Real-time Categorization Engine) which keeps our categories of website content always up-to-date by scanning billions of Web pages continually.
- Our simple to use, web based administration, and mobile apps empower you to quickly customize and change what content can be accessed, giving you greater control of your networks Internet usage.
Whoa! Let’s get started.
