Internet safety for parents

As a parent you might feel you don’t have a full understanding of what your kids are up to in their online activities. You can be insecure about rules and recommendations when it comes to things like age limits and privacy issues.

Our blog Internet safety for parents answers questions, explains phenomena and raises discussions.

The most recent blog posts are regularly summarized in a newsletter that you can subscribe to in different languages.

Safety

Internet safety is a top priority for watAgame. Our staff is educated by Save the Children in Denmark in internet safety and participates in relevant seminars like EU’s Safer Internet Forum. We also cooperate with the police.

On our products, the user’s personal info is not revealed to other users and the content is both moderated and scanned.
The comprehensive safety mechanics allow users to report unwanted content and ensure that the users’ questions are answered fast.

Safeguard

These are the key elements of SAFEGUARD – watAgame’s internet safety system and processes.

Safety tools

Our extensive internet safety tools are our pride. For example, we have filters censoring bad words and picking up suspicious words, automated lists showing risky content and misbehaving users, and a complete overview of who has done what and when. Our safety staff checks the lists and filters ongoing and every day.

Live moderation

Around 100 moderators see through content to delete things that are breaking the rules and punish misbehaving users. Our moderators are visibly present in the communities and the users can also turn to them if they need help.

Cooperation with external experts

To ensure the best possible and up-to-date safety to our users, we cooperate with NGO’s, the police and other instances that want the best for children.  We have close cooperation with for example Save the Children, Norwegian National Criminal Investigation Service and Foreningen for Børn og Unge i Voldsramte Familier.

Safety and educational campaigns

Both on our own initiative and together with our partners, we teach good online behavior. We take a clear stand against bullying both online and offline, and remind our users that the same rules apply online as in offline life.

Learning aspect

We focus on creativity and user involvement. We encourage the users to express themselves in whichever way suits them best.

Momio aims to be the child’s first social community where the user will learn social media competencies such as communicating in a nice tone and always remembering online safety principles.

“I have friends on Momio that I would never have otherwise! On Momio I can be more open and be the real me. It has helped me explore new styles, music and much more.”
