Microsoft Launches Ad-Free Version of Bing for Kids

With Microsoft's "Bing in the Classroom," administrators can enable an ad-free, adult content-free version that lets students browse the Internet for educational purposes. The program, which was officially launched in August, was called "Bing for Schools" and was accessed by 4.5 million students. Now, Bing in the Classroom is available to any K-12 institution throughout the nation. 

"Along with providing educational enhancements, Bing in the Classroom removes ads and blocks searches from being used for personalized advertising for all Bing.com searches done through the school's network, making Bing the only major search engine to provide a search offering tailored specifically for the classrom," Bing wrote today in a post according to GeekWire.
