Google rolls out `parental control` feature for Chrome
London: Google has reportedly introduced parental control to its Chrome web browser allowing parents to monitor and control the browsing behaviour of their children.
The feature called `supervised users`, lets `managers` or parents to set up profiles of the people they want to monitor.
According to the BBC, the feature is available on Windows, Mac and Linux OS lets managers view the supervised users` browsing history, block specific sites, and approve access requests.
Google said that the default setting is to allow a newly created supervised user to view all websites and managers have to specify what sites they want to block.
The feature automatically activates SafeSearch for supervised users, to refrain adult content from showing up in the web searches.
The report said that the move comes amidst growing concerns over inappropriate content children can be exposed to online including graphic violence for which Facebook has been the recent to receive the flak.
