Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
United Parents Child Protection Service™ (http://www.unitedparents.com) launched today as the free early-warning solution to help caring parents safeguard children from predators and bullies online, without invading their privacy.
The free software – installed on a child’s computer and those shared with the rest of the family – offers parents serenity through the knowledge their children are shielded from online offenders. Social networking and instant messaging are monitored in the background and analyzed by over fifty behavioral parameters to root out potential threats. Parents don’t see their child’s online conversations, but instead receive an alert when suspicious relationships or activities are detected. They can also view a ‘big picture’ assessment of the child’s online behavior via web dashboard. Both tools provide increased opportunities to initiate conversations offline, building trust among the family.
“Our kids today have more social interactions online than anyplace else, and it’s a challenge for even the most involved parent to keep up,” said United Parents CEO Hanan Lavy. “Our comprehensive solution represents the next generation of online child-safety. Unlike previous tools which only filter content or monitor sites over the public web, United Parents extends the reach of parents to where their kids really live online – their personal social network and I.M. connections. Yet, we do it in a way that respects them and keeps their privacy intact.”
The service uses the power of the crowd to amplify its safety net and build a protective community among enrolled families. It maintains a comprehensive “digital fingerprint” for every potential predator who interacts with a registered child. Parents are alerted whenever their child encounters one of these previously identified threats. As the user base grows, United Parents leverages the community’s collective power to provide increasingly secure protection for all members. Other features include:
- Child’s Summary Dashboard – Continuously updated analysis of child’s internet behavior – including total and most active time periods spent online, statistics and demographic information of people communicating with child the most, social networks and instant messaging services used, top subjects discussed and more.
- Digital Graphology™ – Automatically tracks predators’ newest usernames and email addresses, blocking them from regaining access to registered children. Also, unifies children’s virtual identities across multiple networks, sites and services, enabling the software to watch after them wherever they go online.
- Monthly Reports – Snapshots of child’s internet behavior sent to parents each month via email, directing them back to the dashboard for details.
Concerned parents can’t see everything their children do online – and don’t really want to. United Parents acts as a “Family Firewall,” offering parents priceless peace of mind as they guide their kids into adulthood without invading their personal space.
