It is an upfront tool that parents and children can use as a means to openly discuss responsible online activity or even potential cyberbullying issues.
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Keyware Inc. is offering parents of online children a powerful cyberbullying prevention tool: Action Alert™. Action Alert (patent pending) is an easy-to-use parental control innovation for family computers designed to assist parents in protecting their children from online threats, as well as to help them educate their children about safe and responsible Internet use. It is the only online program endorsed by the Child Safety Network (CSN).
Brian Lawson, co-creator of Action Alert and a 20-year Internet Security Consultant, is often asked to speak to parents on the subject of raising 21st century children. During his presentations, he offers three main pieces of advice to the parents, all of which can be applied toward the prevention of cyberbullying:
- Set time limits on computer use
- Create a safe environment
- Be over their shoulder
Brian and his brother, Mark Lawson, created Action Alert to help parents put the advice of experts into action with one comprehensive, affordable solution. Some of Action Alert’s free features include a time allowance function, content filtering and site blocking. Action Alert also allows parents to receive alerts via email or text messages when questionable content, such as a home address or financial information, is used. The parents can then shut down the computer remotely until they get home.
Using the full version of Action Alert, parents can also input terms that initiate alerts, such as the name of a bully or hateful or violent terms. It also offers the option to review their child’s online activity and both sides of a chat or email conversation. All of these features allow parents to address specific online behaviors with their children before a situation can become out of control.
“Action Alert is not by any means intended to be a hidden feature,” says Keyware CEO John Rooney. “It is an upfront tool that parents and children can use as a means to openly discuss responsible online activity or even potential cyberbullying issues. Each feature helps parents protect and educate their children, even when they can’t be right over their shoulder.”
A free version of Action Alert is available to download at http://www.ActionAlert.com. The full version upgrade is also obtainable on the website for an affordable annual cost of $29.99.
