Microsoft Unveils Ad-free Version of Bing For Schools

microsoftYesterday Microsoft announced that it would offer an advertising-free version of its Bing search engine for schools, which also includes extra privacy and filtering of adult content.

Commenting on this, Microsoft’s Matt Wallaert said,”Bing For Schools will offer schools in the US the option to tailor the Bing experience for (elementary and secondary) students by removing all advertisements from search results, enhancing privacy protections and the filtering of adult content, and adding specialized learning features to enhance digital literacy. The program is completely voluntary: schools have the choice of participating or keeping the normal Bing experience. For those that opt-in, Bing will enable the experience across all searches from within the school’s network on, without any need for special software.”

He further added that while Bing already offers the ability to filter out adult content, the new services will automatically default to the strict setting and remove kids ability to change it.
