Kids spend a lot of time on the Internet. We all know that. What you may not know is that kids spend 90 percent of that time on social networks. 90 percent.

And, when bad things happen, only 20 percent of incidents get reported to parents, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Group.

Do you know what your kids are doing online—and with whom?

Kids don’t always understand the potential dangers, so it’s up to us, as parents, to teach them how to be safe online, just like we do in the real world.

Announcing SocialShield. It sees what you can’t see by scanning and analyzing your child’s social network activity, and alerting you to anything suspicious.

Even if you’re keeping an eye on your kids by “friending” them, you’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Friends can’t see most activities, including private messages, chats, events, groups and restricted photos and videos.

Even if you have your kids use the computer in the family room, 90 percent of kids also access social networks other ways: with their phones, or using computers at school, the library or a friend’s house.

SocialShield scans for a range of social networking dangers such as predators, cyberbullying, public personal information, and inappropriate content related to violence, gangs, racism, profanity, drinking, drugs, alcohol, sex, and suicide.

PC Magazine rated SocialShield 4.5 out of 5 stars and awarded it both Editors’ Choice and Best Product of the Year 2011, calling the product “one impressive monitoring tool.”

Unlike traditional monitoring solutions, there is no software to install and SocialShield connects directly with social networks to scan and analyze all activity, regardless of which computer or phone your child is using.

SocialShield is not a spying tool. We provide you with easy-to-understand and actionable reports that you can use to have constructive conversations with your children, helping them to be smart and stay safe online.

Setting up an account is easy. Simply sign up, and then enter your child’s social network login information, or send an email inviting your kids to enter it themselves. That’s it!

SocialShield generates the first report immediately, identifying any suspicious friends, or inappropriate posts, messages, photos or videos.

We only alert you to what’s important, so you can have peace of mind without spending countless hours reviewing your kids’ activity.

Within each alert, we show you exactly what happened and explain why we flagged it, so you’ll understand regardless of the slang, misspelled words or acronyms.

SocialShield also gives you unique insight into any of the friends involved in an alert. Simply click on a friend’s name to see a history of past interactions and alerts.

SocialShield also notifies you immediately via email if we find a critical alert, and sends a weekly email that summarizes everything we’ve identified that may be of concern.
