Are you worried that your kid might be exposed to possibly harmful content online? Is your kid’s safety a priority issue for you? It can get quite hard, as a parent, to have to constantly restrict your children from the countless threats they can encounter over the web. From unwillingly downloading viruses and other malware, to revealing their identity and location to strangers who might not have the best of intentions, your kids are exposed to a number of very serious dangerous circumstances over the web. And it is your duty – any parent’s duty, for that matter – to keep them safe.
Achieving Kid Safety Online
While it’s true that there are software options out there, especially antivirus programs, that offer parental controls, you can never really be sure as to what’s going on. Moreover, parental controls can be quite hard to set up and not all offer you comprehensive logs on what your kids are doing online. Last, but not least, if you kid wants to participate in the whole online social scene (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), then you’d need an alternative that allows you to make sure that your kid is not talking to strangers or being exposed to harmful or adult content.
KidzRocket is a platform that aims to change all that and I for one, applaud their effort. Currently in a fundraising stage through which they aim to increase safety features, diversify them and revamp the look of the website as a whole, they need our help. Make sure you go to their Indiegogo page and donate as much or as little as you can. Read on to find out what KidzRocket aims to do with their platform and how it all works to offer kid safety online.
Acting like social media platform exclusively for kids, KidzRocket will allow parents to create an account using verifiable credentials (credit card info). From there on, parents can open up to 5 distinct profiles for their kids. You can help them set up that profile – uploading a profile picture and even getting in touch with their friends. All the while, you’ll have access to all the content and the assurance that they cannot post, browse or even make contact with possibly adult or disturbing content. KidzRocket does this by allowing you to install a software that will block all websites in the categories of your choosing. Even more, you get logs on what your kid has tried to access and at what time of day. This allows you to supervise who is feeding them the links and why.
On the platform, kids can do whatever they choose to do, much like almost all other popular social networking platforms available. From sharing pictures, videos and status updates, they can interact with other kids their age in a fun, engaging and diverse manner. And all this with you standing comfortably in another room, allowing them the privacy they need, but without having to worry that they’ll get to those nasty parts of the web.
So, as you can see – it’s a pretty big endeavor the people behind KidzRocket have embarked on. It’s your duty as a responsible parent to make sure your kids thrive in a safe and entertaining environment online and the first thing you can do to make sure that happens is to help the KidzRocket Indiegogo campaign today.
