New York, NY (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
SocialScanner Technologies, a technology innovation company offering child safety web platforms and mobile applications, announced today a Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) promotion for its Ranger-Pro Browser application. The application will be available for free during the month of October. The Ranger-Pro Browser application was built in order to monitor children’s online activities and shield them from cyber-bullies or child predators. Children-focused social networks are a fast-growing segment of the internet, and children as young as three are engaged on popular children-focused social sites.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is annually recognized each October, and encourages individuals to follow better safety practices while online. Promoted by the National Cyber Security Alliance, this year’s NCSAM features the theme “Our shared responsibility.” For more information about NCSAM, visit http://www.StaySafeOnline.org.
The iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad-compatible Ranger-Pro Browser application uses real-time content monitoring to determine if children are attempting to visit inappropriate sites. Even if a site is allowed by existing filters, Ranger-Pro monitors the content within that site continuously.
Parents who use the Ranger-Pro Browser app can log-on to a custom dashboard at http://www.MobSafety.com to view real-time information about their child’s online activities. Internet access times can also be controlled through the app, allowing parents to restrict access during homework or other similar times.
“Whether it’s keeping your kids from viewing inappropriate websites, or managing their time spent browsing online, parents struggle with the demands of today’s online world,” said Nick Murray, CEO of SocialScanner Technologies. “Our app is intuitive and easy to use for busy parents who want to be involved in their child’s online life, but don’t have the time to learn a confusing or involved new technology. While children can build friendships and learn exciting new discoveries online, there are ever-present dangers that should be closely monitored, and parents should never assume they know all about their child’s activities. ”
During NCSAM, parents can download the Ranger-Pro Browser free of charge from the Apple App Store. The Ranger-Pro Browser application normally costs $14.99.
