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?
Simply click to download the Kidas software and install it to your child's PC. Any time your child is playing video games, our device analyzes gaming-related 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.

How should I discuss Kidas with my child?
We created Kidas to help parents support their children in navigating their digital lives safely. While it is possible to install Kidas without your child’s knowledge, we recommend discussing Kidas with your child. We recommend explaining to your child that Kidas protects their privacy and does not share specifics of their conversations with their parents. Parents are only alerted of potential issues and cannot access or directly review any of their child’s activity.
What games and interactions can Kidas monitor?
Kidas can monitor communications in PC games and gaming-related communication platforms (e.g., Discord).
Can my child disable Kidas?
They can, but the process is rather challenging. You will receive an alert when the software is disabled. This is why we recommend explaining the reasoning behind using our product in order to work with your child to keep them safe.
How accurate is Kidas?
Kidas uses advanced technology that was built by experts and tested on thousands of cases. However, it is possible that you will get an alert about a case you do not consider concerning. In those rare cases, we would be happy to get your feedback so we can further improve our technology.
How does Kidas keep my child's data safe?
Security is critical to Kidas. Your child’s data is encrypted throughout every step of the monitoring process, including when Kidas analyzes data and sends parents alerts. All of our servers are physically located in the United States.
Can I review more of my child's activity?
Kidas is built to protect your child’s privacy.
To maintain open communication and trust, we feel that it’s important only to alert parents when it is critical to their child’s well being. Aside from these alerts, Kidas will not share your child’s activity in-depth.
What language does Kidas support?
Currently, Kidas supports only English.
How does Kidas keep my child's data private?
Kidas complies to the strictest privacy regulations, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). We do not share your child’s data with any third party.
Would installing the Kidas software slow down the speed of my computer?
No, while Kidas will automatically run in the background when your child is online, our software is designed to minimize the capacity required and ensure optimal in-game experience.
