AUBURN, Mass., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — SimpliProtected helps parents protect their kids from viewing inappropriate or explicit content online. The family friendly wireless router is “worry-free Wi-Fi for the home.” The home becomes an online safe zone for the kids. Whether your kids are having a play-date or their cousins are visiting from out of town, the Internet is filtered and kid friendly.
Founded by concerned parents, SimpliProtected enables kids to use the Internet as a powerful tool for homework and learning, without parents having to worry about distractions from social media or inappropriate content. The entire setup takes minutes to complete and provides a virtual invisible fence around the home, blocking and filtering online content. “Never before in the history of telecommunications media in the United States has so much indecent and obscene material been so easily accessible by so many minors in so many American homes with so few restrictions” (U.S. Department of Justice, 1996).
Many of today’s solutions are a hassle for parents due to the installation of software on every device and only certain operating systems are supported (e.g. Windows only, no Apple support). Also, it can be time consuming updating software on every device when a new version of the software is available. Additionally, the software solutions can be expensive, based on a per device cost. The more devices you own, the more you pay.
There is a simpler, more affordable solution. No software required. It’s called SimpliProtected. The Founders feel technology can be a powerful tool, if done right. “We want our service to be an extension of parenting, a tool that seamlessly integrates into the busy life of every family.” With the 24/7 always-on technology, automatic updates happen without the need for any configuration changes. Parents can have a dedicated Wi-Fi network just for the kids, while the adult network remains unfiltered with no speed degradation. One of the Founders explains how the service works in his home.
“At home, my iPhone is available and accessible to my kids, and they use it from time to time. Recently, my son wanted to know football scores. We’re from the Boston area so you can probably guess the team. He grabbed my iPhone and found what he needed. It wasn’t until a few days later, when I went searching for a Saturday Night Live (SNL) Donald Trump video on YouTube, that I was reminded of the convenience of SimpliProtected. The YouTube results were filtered, which meant I couldn’t find any SNL videos. I had forgotten I was connected to the SimpliProtected network. I am telling this story because it is a good example of how we, as parents, need to make sure our homes are safe zones for our kids, and having SimpliProtected creates an invisible fence around our homes with only a few simple steps.”
SimpliProtected combines easy to install hardware with 24/7 always-on technology to create a worry-free Wi-Fi network in the home. SimpliProtected is a startup, founded in 2016 and based out of New Hampshire, USA. Find more information at SimpliProtected.com, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Amazon.
