AOL NetFind Kids Only was a search engine for children from AOL. It started in 1997 and was renamed AOL Kids Only in 1999 with the renaming of the AOL portal. The children's search engine was discontinued in 2002. Kids Only used software to filter out content that was not suitable for children. However, if parents found content that was not suitable for children, they could report it to AOL.
