Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
XRayData, a cyber bullying alert software for schools and parents, launches worldwide today.
XRayData is a cyber bullying alert software that allows schools and parents to enroll their children and then the parents get notified of any potentially harmful behavior from or to the child online. The software is launching for Ask.fm, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus in its first phase.
Once schools and parents enroll as many children as they need per account, the guardian is notified of any negative online behavior via email, they are also notified to the severity of the behavior. As XRayData also prides itself on education, it gives tips and guidelines to parents and teachers on how to approach children bullying others online or being bullied themselves.
Macartan Mulligan ,co-founder of XRayData, says, “We are very proud to be able to offer this world first to schools - software that helps them in their duty of care towards children, but more importantly keeps children safe. We are looking forward to seeing what school will be the first in the world to install this new school cyber bullying alert system - and offer a new level of protection to parents of children in their care. Our system is 50% education and 50% alerts - which is very important; we need to educate teachers, parents and children to safe online activity."
Mulligan confirmed he did present the software at the HMC 2013 conference in London on Monday with fellow team members from the XRayData team including Gerard Flynn, MBE - a recently retired school principal and now brand ambassador for the cyber bullying system. He said the software raised quite a stir within the educators’ circle. “It will be very interesting to see which school will be the first to sign up to the system, since we launch today – a world's first in the fight against cyber bullying”, stated Mulligan.
XRayData allows parents to be alerted to negative online behavior on their child’s social networks by email where they can only see what is possibly negative and at the same time allowing the child to maintain a safe online social life. It can be customized to needs of parents and educators, allowing for a better safer online presence for everyone involved.
