Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson discusses the ProtectMiChild registry to keep kids away from adult online content.

We are officially into summer and while plenty of kids will be spending time participating in  supervised  activities, others will be spending time in front of screens...sometimes unsupervised.

Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says there is a way to protect kids from adult themed content on their electronic devices. It's the ProtectMiChild registry, which became available to Michiganders 14 years ago.

Current State's Brooke Allen speaks with Johnson about the registry.

Brooke Allen served as local producer and host for Morning Edition, from June 2016-March 2018.
