About Kidas

Our Story

Growing up, our founder, Ron Kerbs,  loved playing video games. In the last few years, he noticed that games require more online communication with other players. While most players enjoy the additional social aspect, young players do not know how to deal with the risks that they encounter online such as bullying and online predators.

 

Ron decided to solve this problem using the skills he acquired in his previous role in which he was creating threat detection solutions for national security agencies. That brought Kidas to life - a parents and kids friendly solution that protects kids using the most advanced technology that up until recently was only available to national security agencies.

 

Our mission: let kids enjoy online gaming while making sure that they are safe.
