Tailor-made protection solution thanks to media child-proof wizard 

As a further special feature, the infoportal's media child-proof wizard allows parents to create a customized protection solution based on their child's age and the devices and services they use. Parents are guided step-by-step through the instructions relevant to their children and thus always keep track of which settings have already been made and where there are still gaps in protection. If they wish, parents can also be notified by e-mail if the settings for the protective measures they are using have changed.

The website is a service of the Baden-Württemberg State Communications Authority (LFK), the Bremen State Media Authority (brema) and the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Media Authority (MMV).
