Sly Profanity Censor Apps
The Steamy Window App Fogs Up the Screen When Profane Language is Used

The name of the application may be slightly misleading but the concept design of the Steamy Window app is actually a method of parental control for children while surfing the Internet.

Back in the 90s, there were code words for kids to use while chatting online via ICQ or MSN such as PAW to signal to friends that Parents Are Watching, which means tone down the profanity or sensitive topics. With new technology and more discreet ways to evade detection, parents of the older generations may find it difficult to monitor their child’s or their friends’ language online. The Steamy Window app, however, automatically senses sensitive language and fogs up the screen, which for younger less patient children can be a huge nuisance.
