The Universal V-Chip: To Help Parents Protect their Children from Adult Media Content
According to the FCC website, the V-Chip was implemented in televisions in 2000 to allow parents to block television shows based on their TV rating according to the TV Parental Guidelines. This helps parents protect their children from adult content on television. There is currently no way to monitor children's media usage across a variety of devices, from smartphones, tablets, computers and more. A universal V-Chip system could allow parents to program all of the electronic devices that their children have access to. This sort of system would be an easy way to protect young children from adult media content.
