Safe Communications, Inc. Launches Next Generation Technology as a Free Service to Protect Children from Undesirable and Harmful Text and Email Messages
MouseMail.com creates a safe environment for children by putting parents in control of their children’s online and phone communications
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Show, Safe Communications, Inc. (Pink Sheets: SGTB) on Thursday will open beta registration for MouseMail.com, the revolutionary patent-pending online security service that protects children from vulgar, sexual or bullying emails, text messages and social networking interactions. This free service allows parents to screen emails and text messages and monitor other online activity for questionable or objectionable content.
MouseMail.com is the only messaging platform that flags and blocks messages containing offensive, bullying or sexually-suggestive language before the child receives them, while allowing for communication with approved contacts. The fully-operational beta phase launches Jan. 6 with several new services designed to create a safe digital environment for children.
“Technological advancements have done great things for our children’s education, but they have also made virtually all kids more vulnerable to cyber-bullying and online predators,” said former Secretary of Education and Drug Czar William J. Bennett, a senior advisor to Safe Communications. “We can never do enough to keep our children safe. The tools MouseMail.com provides alert parents to their children’s email, text messaging and social networking activity without hindering their access to the benefits of technology.”
The Active Email Filtering and Active Text Filtering services of MouseMail.com will now be available free for parents. Text messages and emails that contain inappropriate, suggestive or threatening words or phrases are automatically blocked. Text messages and emails from unapproved senders will be held for parental screening before being delivered to a child’s device.
“MouseMail.com services give parents no-cost control and peace of mind,” said John P. Venners, President of Safe Communications, Inc. “Children’s access to these technologies is a fact of life, and parental involvement in their digital communications is vital to keeping them safe. Safe Communications’ goal with MouseMail.com is to provide a free and easy-to-use way for parents to take control from online predators and bullies and creating a safe digital environment for our children.”
The next generation of technology, to be released later this month, also marks the integration of several new features that add extra security on top of the filtering services. Social Website Scanning and Global Scan Technology monitor social networking sites – including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and YouTube – as well as blogs and other websites for questionable content posted on the child’s page or written about them by another user.
“The emerging and evolving technologies driving online communications are shaping our children’s generation, so it’s vital that they learn how to use them responsibly,” said Les Ottolenghi, chairman of the board of Safe Communications and founder of AgentWare Inc., INTENT MediaWorks and Fuzebox Inc. “MouseMail.com allows kids to experiment with these technologies while alerting parents to potential problems.”
