Children/s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by the US Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet (specifically pornography). CIPA imposes requirements on both schools and public 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. The latest updates to this rule were made in 2011.

Expand Your Internet Safety Policy with CleanBrowsing

While CIPA has to be certified by the school or library, CleanBrowsing can be used as part of the technical stack to help demonstrate compliance.

CleanBrowsing provides protection measures that block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). This is a specific CIPA requirement designed to ensure safe online experiences for students. CleanBrowsing can also be used to monitor the online activities of minors, another CIPA requirement.
