Portcard.net's software and user interface is designed to allow a person or family to list all the social network sites they visit so that they only need a single registration for the Internet
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
While New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo and Facebook have just agreed on a plan for the social networking site to respond to concerns about internet predators, Portcard.net is already providing Facebook users with an effective tool to combat these predators. Users of Facebook and social networking services such as AIM and MySpace can increase their security by using Portcard.net to immediately authenticate the identity of other users and remove the total anonymity predators use to exploit children on social networking sites.
Portcard.net allows users on social networks the ability to "card" the people who contact them or send them friend requests. Through Portcard.net's proprietary system, children and others get into the safety habit of " carding " friends on the Internet, using their membership as a security tool, much like using a seat belt in a car. In a matter of minutes, children and their parents can check to see if these new friends have an authenticated identity stored at Portcard.net.
"Portcard.net's software and user interface is designed to allow a person or family to list all the social network sites they visit so that they only need a single registration for the Internet," said Paul Loeb, Portcard.net's chief software designer.
"Since social networking sites like Facebook opened their API's, Portcard.net has been able to more efficiently help protect children online," said Portcard.net Founder Ricky Doyle. "Portcard provides a voluntary level of protection to parents who are looking for a safer social networking experience for their children."
Portcard.net stores authenticated personal information in case there is a need to identify a particular registered user to law enforcement. Portcard.net does not share personal information with any other entities.
Portcard.net was founded by Richard Proctor Doyle III (Ricky), and Paul Eric Loeb - business students at the University of Southern California (USC) - to build a website that accomplished their vision of creating a safer internet. Portcard.net's team includes a strong advisory board that includes internet security specialists and current and former law enforcement officials.
