Why am I asked to provide my child’s details when creating an account?
At SafeToNet we take the young one’s right to privacy extremely seriously.
When creating a child’s profile, we will ask for a name for the device user (i.e., Amy), a device name (i.e., iPhone), the date of birth and the gender of the child.
The first two are just a way for you to create an alias for your child’s device so you can recognize it on your dashboard. In this case, feel free to add a nickname instead as this information is only there to help you! Knowing your child’s gender and age, however, allows us to better safeguard your child as we can identify potential trends in relation to cyber-bullying, grooming and other online threats that occur gender and age specific.
If you wish to know more, we have created a section solely on privacy for you here, alternatively, always feel free to reach out to us here as it would be our pleasure to go over this together with you.
