…and we’re live!
After nearly 5 months of intense research, design, development and testing, we proudly present FamilySignal.
FamilySignal analyzes what your child sends & receives on social networks for signs of danger. Parents are then instantly alerted to any suspected dangerous activity with a text message and an email.
The origin of FamilySignal is simple: the world has changed and parents need help. We were disgusted constantly reading about cyberbullying cases, sexual assaults that resulted from online contact, and predators preying on children via social networks. We knew technology could help.
Do your kids have a Facebook account yet? Even if not, chances are they know about Facebook and might even use it via their friend’s account or at school.
We designed FamilySignal to be extremely easy for parents to understand and use, while offering a powerful tool in protecting children: awareness. Our alerts are not only useful for parents to immediately stay abreast of developing situations online, but also provide excellent teaching and discussion opportunities for their children.
We plan on using this blog to showcase new features, discuss any technical issues, provide tips and tricks for parents and editorials on the evolving role of technology in the lives of families.
Thank you for joining us. We hope you enjoy FamilySignal as much as we enjoy creating it for you.
