The Digital Parenting Toolbox

The internet has created endless opportunities and information available to everybody anywhere. Our kids’ natural curiosity can lead them to search, and be exposed to inappropriate content, unfit for their age. It also can give them bad examples, leading them to believe that certain life experiences – such as sex – works just like it does in the movies. Young children might access pornography; teenagers could be checking about risky challenges like the Momo Challenge, anorexia and bulimia, and otherwise.

Protect your kids with the Surfie app’s innovative digital parenting features:

Advanced Internet Filtering

Monitor and filter your kids’ internet consumption, based on their age. Block access, restrict access and filter out what you think is appropriate – or let Surfie decide for you.

Caught your kid in the act of watching porn? For young children especially, this can be incredibly worrying. You wanted to have a conversation about sex and intimacy at a designated time, providing them with a more open and realistic environment to discuss sexual behavior.

Or maybe your child has heard alarming discussions about the need to look and behave a certain way, and then started researching ways to lose weight quickly.

In both of these cases, you should be alerted and ready to take the course of action necessary to protect your children. PureSight’s Advanced Internet Filtering alerts you to any potentially worrying content competition, alerting you as and when you need to be aware. Surfie will adjust the acceptable content to each child’s age, meaning a 7 year old will be allowed to view different content to a 14 year old.

The content filtering feature covers a range of categories, including drugs, hateful content., violence, gambling, cyberbullying and more.

Social Media Monitoring

Track conversations across popular platforms like WhatsApp, Instagram, Viber and Facebook for troubling keywords to do with inappropriate situations, behaviors and conversations.

How can you tell that your child is chatting with appropriate people – and that they’re not being secretly groomed? Can you be certain you know their chat partners are safe, and who they say they are? How about what your children are chatting about?

Surfie monitors your children’s chats, making sure they are safe and talking to people in their contact list, and about safe topics. You’ll receive notifications should any potentially troubling keywords come up, and know at all times who your kids are chatting with. Enjoy a middle-ground for you both – allowing your kids to keep their privacy, while you protect them from any digital harm.

Parental Alert Notifications

Receive notifications once certain flags are raised – if something happens, a keyword is triggered or otherwise.

Has your child received a message that their friend’s parents aren’t at home? Or about something secual, drug-related, violent or otherwise inappropriate?

No matter the inappropriate action or content, Surfie will alert you – according to pre-defined, age-appropriate filters – when something has triggered the inappropriate content filter and let you know all about it. Once you receive a notification, you can then choose which action to take in response – block, restrict or otherwise. It’s your call.

24/7 Cross-Device Monitoring

Do you know how your kids use their devices at night? Now you can, and will! Monitor your kids’ devices 24/7, all from one easy-to-use dashboard.

Is your child secretly messaging someone late at night, long after you’d thought they;d gone to bed? Are they spending too much time on their apps and social media?
