Washington D.C. (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, and uKnow.com is doing its part by offering parents access to a free version of their industry-leading parental intelligence system. uKnowKids Essential is a powerful new service to help parents protect their kids against online predators, sexting, and cyberbullying while also supervising their children's digital privacy and reputation. uKnowKids Essential is the foundation of the uKnowKids platform, which includes uKnowKids Premier and uKnowKids Premier+. Parents can access the free service at http://www.uknow.com.
uKnowKids Essential provides parents with all the major tools needed to effectively supervise their children’s digital world. Features of the free product include:
- Comprehensive social network monitoring
- Robust activity reports
- Mobile phone and text monitoring
- Text lingo and slang translation engine
- Contact and message search engine
“This issue is personal for us, since we know first-hand what it is like to find out your child is in danger due to their activity online. We started this company because we wanted parents to be able to protect their kids, and we’re standing by that promise by enabling anyone to use the basic components of our uKnowKids service without charge. Our end-goal is to ensure that no cyberbullying incident goes unnoticed,” said Steve Woda, CEO and co-founder, uKnow.com.
uKnowKids is the first service to do more than simply show parents the messages their kids are sending and receiving; instead the service takes the vast amount of social data available online about a child and on the mobile phone, and translates it so a parent can quickly and easily understand it - and if needed - act on it.
“Since October is National Bullying Awareness Month, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to offer every parent the ability to protect their kid from cyberbullying,” said Tim Woda, SVP and co-founder of uKnow.com. “More than one in three young people have experienced cyber threats online, and many parents don’t even know it’s happening. There is a narrow window of opportunity that parents of tweens have to effectively insert themselves into their kids’ digital world. uKnowKids Essential enables every parent to have their kids back without constantly looking over their shoulder.”
Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Arlington, Va., uKnow.com powers the world's leading Parental Intelligence Systems including uKnowKids.com, KidSafe.me, and SafeCyberKids.com, among others.
