Happy to be here, hope to have positive discussions.
I’m a parent (triplet girls \o/ ) and an entrepreneur - just founded a company in the parental control space called Saferize.com. Our approach is different from what traditional companies do. For the first time ever, we empower developers to enabling parents customize how children interact with apps.
It’s a natural movement, whenever a market matures, society demands companies take an actively role in safety (in this case, children safety). We saw that happing in the auto industry: in the beginning drivers were blamed for deaths and injuries. Later on, companies were pushed to invest in seatbelts, crash tests, etc. Nowadays, safety is a feature and even generates more sales.
We’ve been seeing Apple investors demanding the company to improve their parental controls, Facebook launching Messenger Kids, Google hiring thousands of moderators to remove inappropriate videos and more. This very forum and the Center For Humane Technology are proofs this change is happening!
We want to make it easy for any developer to be part of this change.
Would love to get your thoughts!
