Share Article

Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8, is currently available for purchase and uKnow.com has created a free digital parenting application for Windows 8 users.

We are very excited to have the uKnowKids app in the Windows Store. We love to be on the forefront of technology, especially considering the nature of our company. The wider our reach, the more parents we can educate about Internet safety.

uKnow.com, the world’s leading parental intelligence company and makers of uKnowKids, is pleased to announce the launch of its Windows 8 application, which became available on October 26th, 2012. Any user can get the free application in the Windows Store, but it requires a subscription and is designed to be a companion to uKnowKids service . Subscriptions to uKnowKids range from free to $9.95 per month. To make navigating the application simple, uKnowKids has created multiple videos that easily take you through how to sign up, add a social network, and use the app.

The uKnowKids app is heavily image-based with a horizontal scroll bar and has a layout similar to Windows 8. The app provides summary information at a quick glance and in depth information including alerts, detailed notifications, recent images, activity and contacts for multiple children if the user has a Family Plan subscription.

By downloading this application, any user is able to monitor his or her child’s social networking sites and mobile phone usage from any product--tablet, desktop, or laptop--that operates on Windows 8.

uKnow.com CEO Steve Woda remarked, “We are very excited to have the uKnowKids app in the Windows Store. We love to be on the forefront of technology, especially considering the nature of our company. The wider our reach, the more parents we can educate about Internet safety and the more children we can help protect from the many dangers online.”

The uKnowKids App has been identified as a General Availability App, meaning it was available for download the same day that Windows 8 was released.

In future updates, watch for additions of location monitoring, the Family Map feature, robust activity reports, and analysis of children's online and mobile activities.
