Kudoso is an ingenious system that allows parents to restrict their kids' access to the Internet, and control the access so that their kids can only get online when they've earned the right to do so by completing their homework or performing chores.

Many smart devices come with parental control options; however controlling child access across multiple devices can be tricky. This is where the Kudoso system comes in -- and controls Internet access at the point of the router itself. Kids can only access the Internet when they complete a parent-created checklist of tasks.

Parents essentially put together a list of activities that they want their child to complete. By completing the activities, the child earns points towards online time.

Kudoso essentially uses cloud-based software and proprietary hardware that blocks unapproved content from getting past the Internet router. This means parents can allow their children access to websites useful for homework for example, whilst blocking other websites.
