Knowing that your children are safe online, and acting responsibly, is a huge challenge for parents given the technology available today. There are dozens of solutions in the market for tools that help parents manage kids’ online activity.
The ThirdParent solution is different from all of them.
When you sign up for the ThirdParent service, your digital parenting responsibilities remain firmly in your hands, but are made easier with the tools and information we provide.
We understand that your child’s privacy is important. Parents can ask for passwords and log into their kids’ accounts at any time – we don’t replace that. What we give parents is a concise, easy-to-use look at what someone else would see if they looked online for your child.
The ThirdParent solution does not involve installing monitoring software on your child’s devices. In addition to privacy concerns, we are well aware that if your child knows you are monitoring their every move online, it might prompt them to undertake deceptive practices to hide what they’re really doing. Our solution gives you an honest look.
We believe that the benefits of healthy online activity far outweigh the risks. By using software to block any websites or networks that may contain inappropriate content, you may be shielding your child from much of what is good online, or force your teen to do her browsing on another device.
