What does Kidas do?
Kidas is a tool to help you identify and address any dangerous situations that your child may encounter while interacting with others in video games, from cyberbullying to predatory behavior.
Kidas analyzes your child’s gaming activity and in-game communication to alert you of any potentially concerning situations.
How does Kidas work?
Once signed up to Kidas, we will send you a small device to connect to your child’s gaming console. Any time your child is online, our device analyzes texts and voice communications for any potential red flags.
Our proprietary technology has been trained on thousands of real examples of online predation and cyberbullying. In your weekly email report, you will receive an alert of any alarming behaviors along with some suggestions on how to discuss them with your child.
We know that talking to kids about bullying, depression, suicide or predatory behavior can be challenging. Consider Kidas your partner in alerting you to such concerns and providing you the resources necessary to support your kids.
