It’s an issue almost all parents have to deal with today: How do you protect your children from the hazards of the Internet, while still allowing them to develop in a digital age?
A tech startup company from Kitchener, Ont., thinks they’ve solved the problem once and for all with a solution that, perhaps not surprisingly, can be managed right on your smart phone.
It’s called Kindera, a monitoring system designed to make it easy for parents to supervise (and, if necessary, restrict) their children’s online usage. Because, let’s face it, no matter how smart and responsible your child is, the Internet is way too big and scary (and easily accessed) for you to monitor it all on your own.
Kindera’s advantage is that it lives in the cloud and tracks everything going through your chosen router.
“It is sort of this intelligent home firewall,” Kindera creator Antoine Boucher told the Waterloo Region Record. “It allows me to monitor what my children are doing. It allows me to set filtering on content based on the different ages of my children.”
You can purchase Kindera from their website for $199.
