SafeToNet CEO Richard Pursey said: 

Our mission is to keep children safe online, wherever they are in the world. Nothing can get in the way of that. So when Mobile World Congress 2020 was cancelled, we had no choice but to bring MWC to London. This is the world’s first child safety and digital wellbeing app. At a time when there are as many, if not more, dangers and perils in the virtual world as there are in the real world, it is more important than ever before for parents and guardians to safeguard their children. Our new features make that possible.”
