My latest campaign is keeping e-mail safe for kids
Now that the elections are over, I thought I would send you a completely non-political e-mail that provides something that might actually help you and your family now! It’s a new service to help protect your kids when they send or receive texts and emails from their cell phone. This service is called MouseMail, created by friends of mine at Safe Communications, Inc.
The basic package is available free to the first 100,000 early adopters at: www.FamilySafeHome.com/mousemail.
Here’s how MouseMail works: When a child sends or receives an e-mail — or text on their cell phone — it is routed to the Safe Communications, Inc. server. The service filters the e-mail or text for anything inappropriate, such as cyber-bullying, sexting or language used by predators.
If there’s anything inappropriate, it is sent to a parent. This gives parents several options for taking action, from providing parental guidance on the proper use of text and e-mail, to blocking a particular message, to suspending communications from individuals, to coordinating corrective action with the school or local authorities. Just click on www.FamilySafeHome.com/mousemail to protect your kids with the MouseMail service.
I highly recommend it! Feel free to forward this to your friends and family, and we will try to get them signed up, too, before the first 100,000 slots are filled.
