Windows Phone 8's Childproofing Feature Should Be On Every Phone

Kids these days just can't keep their grubby hands off smartphones and tablets. Once they see the big shiny screen, it's all over. What's worse is if they accidentally tap into your phone's personal information: private pictures, salacious text messages, giant curse words and other adult things. That's why every phone should have this upcoming feature in Windows Phone 8: Kid's Corner.

The guys at The Verge spotted this incredibly useful parental control feature that should be coming to all Windows Phone 8 devices. When activated, Kid's Corner is an entirely different Start screen tailor made for kids. You get to establish a custom Start screen that has just the stuff you want your kids to play with — appropriate games, apps, videos, music — and none of the personal stuff. It's an easy way to keep your adult stuff safe and keep a kid innocent. [The Verge]
