Keeping children safe online during COVID-19
As Cowley International College is a member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA – a unique coalition of organisations and individuals, working together to stop bullying and create safer environments in which children and young people can live, grow, play and learn), we are delighted to be able to offer our students’ families free-for-life access of the SafeToNet mobile safety app to help keep children safe online.
On Thursday 25th June, the SafeToNet app was added to the government’s online safety advice webpage.
At a time when children and young people are spending an unprecedented amount of time online due to lockdown, this offer can provide our students’ families the peace of mind that their children can interact more safely as they use their mobile phone or tablet.
The SafeToNet ‘free for life’ offer supports the government’s objective, alongside law enforcement, charities and international partners, to lead the world in tackling online harms and to make the UK the safest place in the world to be online.
SafeToNet, the first cyber safety app of its kind, provides a safe and practical solution to online safeguarding whilst always balancing the privacy rights of the child with the primal need of a parent to keep their child safe. Its award-winning technology uses artificial intelligence and behavioural analytics to safeguard children online in real-time, as they use their mobile device.
Educating children ‘in-the-moment’, it acts as a safeguarding assistant that contains an intelligent keyboard to detect threats such as bullying and sexting as they happen and helps prevent children from sending harmful outgoing messages before any damage can be done. The app’s AI-driven software runs only on the device and fully protects the privacy rights of the child as it never lets anyone see what the child is typing or what they are seeing.
