Providing a safe online environment for the world’s children
PureSight was born and raised alongside the internet itself! Back in 1998, when corporations granted employees with internet access, concerns began to emerge at how employees would use this new and exciting tool.
PureSight began by providing URL filtering servers to protect employees, later evolving to protect kids using the internet – mirroring the way that the internet began as a tool mostly for adults, before moving to one for children too.
As it did, PureSight saw how kids and their parents were perhaps the most in need of solid protective internet tools. While the internet is primarily a force for good, there’s no denying that it holds a range of risks and threats for children – and this seems to be getting drastically escalated by the day.
PureSight aims to shine a light onto those potential threats, and provide parents with the digital tools to protect their kids online, to allow them to browse the internet openly but safely.
Although our solution is technologically cutting-edge, including elements of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Machine Learning, it is our fundamental belief that you, as parents, should spend time with your children, socializing them to the world, and educationally inspiring them.
How PureSight Works
Unfortunately, we’re increasingly seeing how (ever-younger) children are using the internet as a tool to humiliate, abuse, and otherwise cheat and scam other people.
PureSight collects every and any internet sensation, current trend or otherwise potentially dangerous activity, providing parents a pool of resources to help them digitally parent their children by adjusting, restricting and blocking the content their kids can access, according to their ages.
That includes giving parents –
- An overview of their childrens’ screen time
- An overview of their childrens’ app use and gaming time,
- An overview or keyword triggers of their childrens’ chat topics and chat partners,
- Their children’s locations and the history of the places they’ve visited,
- A way to monitor their childrens’ digital and social activities like Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber and more
…all across PureSight’s Surfie app.
We pride ourselves on listening to our customers’ deepest concerns and fears for their children’s online consumption.
Our Content Lab is staffed internationally (Israel, Brazil, USA, Greece, Czech, Latin America, Georgia, Germany), working 24/7 to monitor and collate emerging risks, threats and otherwise potentially dangerous internet trends, using this new data to update our services and alert parents what to watch out for.
The PureSight credo
We envision a world where children worldwide will be able to use the internet safely, allowing every parent to be an active, guiding presence in their kids’ digital life.
To create a safer internet everyday, blocking and alerting parents to every threat existing online, across every device, platform, language and culture.
How we’ll achieve this
PureSight proactively keeps on top of all new and emerging platforms (such as TikTok) and communication methods, providing protection as fast as children adopt to them, allowing them (and parents) protection, all from one, centralized app.
The PureSight team is made up of experienced professionals from a range of different regions, cultures, and religions worldwide, with one clear mission: to keep the internet a safe place for our children.
