What is KidRex and how does it work?

KidRex is a fun and safe search for kids, by kids! KidRex searches emphasize kid-related webpages from across the entire web and are powered by Google Custom Search™ and use Google SafeSearch™ technology.

Google’s SafeSearch™ screens for sites that contain explicit sexual content and deletes them from your child’s search results. Google’s filter uses advanced technology to check keywords, phrases, and URLs. No filter is 100 percent accurate, but SafeSearch™ should eliminate most inappropriate material.

WikiKids Safesearch

The search results you view are filtered articles from Wikipedia’s Simple English Edition. This version allows users to understand normally complex terms or phrases and is ideal for children who are learning English.
