The parental control industry is booming and your app is already being controlled by many parents without you even knowing! All traditional parental control solutions up to until Saferize work by antagonizing parents and companies. We propose a new way, where companies and parents have an open communication channel. Parents then can be comfortable with how kids are engaging with your app. 

The best part? Publishers even get paid to enable parental controls!

Simply because our only goal is to have the best parental control in the world! We focus 100% of our energy on that the same way you are also probably focusing on your mais product not on secondary features. Makes much more economical sense to focus on your core and get third-party companies to provide tools and services you need. Using Saferize will save you money in the end, comparing to the option to build our whole solution yourself.

We provide an easy way for you to get verifiable consent from parents so you can ask for permission to collect and share privacy information from kids. In other words, with Saferize you can easily become compliant to COPPA (or GDPR or any privacy law for that matter). However, it’s important to mention that we don’t review or audit your application to attest it is compliant to the child protection laws.

Make no mistake: It’s much easier to comply to COPPA and GDPR using Saferize than try to do it on your own.
