IRVING, Texas, April 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WebSafety, Inc. (OTCBB:WBSI), the leading provider of software solutions designed to deter distracted driving, cyber-bullying, and predatory Internet behavior, has developed a comprehensive security software solution that protects children from cyber-bullying assaults via cell phones or PCs.
The use of the Internet to bully and stalk children is a growing and dangerous phenomenon. According to i-SAFE Inc., over 50% of adolescents and teens have been bullied online, and more than one in three young people have experienced cyber-threats. Worst of all, over half of these victims do not tell their parents when cyber-bullying occurs.
The company has carefully designed Internet security protocols that allow parents and guardians the opportunity to be notified of potentially dangerous activities. Suicide talk, gun talk, cyber-bullying as well as pornography and sexting issues are identified by an interactive software platform and library of over 11,000 words, terms and phrases. An instant text and email alert is issued, giving parents the opportunity to initiate a conversation with their children and investigate potential problems.
According to the Cyberbullying Research Center, over 80 percent of teens use a cell phone regularly, making it the most popular form of personal technology and a common medium for cyber-bullying. WebSafety's software solution supports over 90 models of smartphones and is marketed under the CellSafety brand name.
"Today's technology enables kids to do so many things – but not all of them are healthy or wise," according to WebSafety CEO Rowland Day. "Our comprehensive software solutions are carefully designed to give kids the freedom they want, while providing the protection and security that parents desire for their children."
