Frequently Asked Questions

What is ASTRO?

Astrosafe is an internet browser built specifically for kids. Teachers or parents can create a safe internet for their kids to explore the internet in a distraction-free browser to help them stay focused on the content that has been chosen for them. There are also a bunch of tools teachers and parents can use, such as real-time screen monitoring to make sure they are safe online.

Does Astro filter the Internet when student devices are used outside of school?

Yes it does! As the filtering happens at a browser-level it means when a student connects to an internet network outside of the school the Astrosafe filtering will still work.

Can I test Astroasfe for free?

Of course. Click Get Started in the top right corner of this page.

How are student’s privacy protected?

Astrosafe is GDPR-K and COPPA compliant and we do not ask for anything which can be used to identify a student. All monitoring is done on a per-device basis protecting student anonymity. Additionally, when possible the Astrosafe browser blocks adverts, cookies and tracking on other websites. We are more than happy to provide an Ed. Law 2-D compliance form or similar documentation if you require. 

What devices does Astrosafe work on?

Currently Astrosafe can be installed as an app on iOS or used as an extension in Google Chrome. This means it will work on any laptop or desktop as long as Google Chrome is installed. If you’re interested in a stand-alone browser for desktop or android let us know at

Does Astro work within existing school filtering systems?

Yes. Astrosafe is implemented at a browser-level which means network-level or DNS filtering will still be active within Astrosafe. That being said, you don't need another filter system within the Astrosafe browser!

Can I review the online activity on my school devices? 

Activity can be monitored both in real-time and historically. See what your students are looking at live in the classroom or see how long they spent on each site for up to 30 days prior.

How does the filtering in the Astrosafe browser work?

The filter system is built from the ground up which means teachers are in complete control. When a teacher adds a site to their lesson it automatically adds it to the filter system so that it stays up to date and they can simply manage the level of access within the site - whether they want to provide access to the full site or to a specific page. Admins have a dashboard where they can stay in control of what links are added to the safe Astrosafe browser.
