As a parent, protecting your child can seem like a full-time job. Luckily, when it comes to protecting your child from the Internet, KidsEmail.org can help. That’s because KidsEmail.org provides a safe and easy to use e-mail interface which allows your child to safely keep in touch with family and friends. KidsEmail provides parental controls, spam filtering, and so much more. It allows you to decide how your child will communicate online.
Specifically, KidsEmail offers–
As a parent, you can receive a copy of all incoming and/or outgoing email that is sent to/from your child. This is a simple setting that can be enabled/disabled if desired.
This option restricts the times of the day and the days of the week that your child can log on. You can even ground your child for a certain period of time and display a custom message when your child attempts to log on!
As the parent, you are the individual who determines who can add contacts to your child’s contact list. Just you? Or can your child also add to his/her contact list? In addition, you can deny the sending and/or receiving of emails to/from anyone not belonging to your child’s contact list (so it’s configurable).
The Mail Queue
The Mail Queue allows you to intercept an email that fails the safety rules that you set for your child (such as someone not in their contact list attempting to send an email). You can then approve the email to be sent to your child or deny and remove the email from the mail queue.
Block Individual Senders
If you allow your child to receive email from anyone, you can still block specific people by adding them to a custom blacklist.
As the parent, you can see when your child logs on and when s/he attempts to log on during a restricted time period.
You can filter out offensive words, remove links within incoming e-mails, remove images within incoming e-mails, and of course, filter spam.
You can determine whether the e-mails your child sends, contain a tagline informing the recipient the message is being sent by a child.
In addition, KidsEmail is user friendly and visually appealing. KidsEmail provides simple and attractive pages for children of all ages. There are different log-in pages, depending on the age of the child, and different e-mail addresses as well (@KidsEmail.org for the younger kids and @Kmail.org for the older kids).
