Ten years ago, we set out to make the digital world a safer place for kids and their families. The uKnowKids team was inspired by a personal tragedy that impacted a family child, and we applied our internet security and safety and data intelligence expertise to help moms and dads struggling with the challenges of parenting kids in this digital age.
Along the way, we created smart tools for parents to protect their kids from bad guys and bullies; we coached families and educators on digital citizenship; and we helped more than a quarter-million families keep their kids safe online and on their mobile devices in more than ninety countries around the world.
Thousands of parents have written to us over the years with personal stories describing how uKnowKids helped to save their kids from harm and improved many young lives.
We are proud of the products we built, the educational content we developed, and the positive impact we had. We are grateful for the parents that put their trust in us, and for the influencers, teachers, investors and policymakers that helped us create and tell the world about uKnowKids. We are especially thankful for our families who have supported us on this journey.
Many digital family safety problems remain unresolved as the big tech companies make it harder and harder for parents to keep their kids safe in this new digital world. While the uKnowKids team has worked relentlessly, we have simply not been able to overcome the many headwinds we faced.
