CIPA - Children's Internet Protection Act

CIPA requires that k-12 schools and libraries enforce internet filters to prevent children from harmful content online. CleanBrowsing covers that requirement for you - with minimum work on your school IT department.





Schools k-12 & CIPA

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was approved by the USA Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet (specially pornography). CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or 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.

Schools using CleanBrowsing on the students computers will comply with CIPA as we block content that falls into the (a)obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors category.

Internet Safety Policy

CleanBrowsing will block access to porn, nudity, obscene, harmful to minors, explicit or graphic content and malicious domains. It will also enforce Strict and Safe mode on Google, Bing, Youtube and other core services, allowing the students to visit those sites safely. Using CleanBrowsing as part of your Internet Safety Policy will allow your school to be CIPA compliant.
