As Christmas nears, many people are thinking about how they can help the less fortunate. KidsEmail.org, a Utah-based company dedicated to keeping children safe online, is donating fifty percent of December’s profits to United Way of Utah County.
“I felt like our missions complement each other,” said Jacob Andersen, founder of KidsEmail.org. “United Way is committed to keeping children safe and healthy. I am committed to keeping children away from child predators and scammers when they are online.”
The service allows parent to set up an email that will:
• Allow child to only receive email from those in their contact list
• Email a copy of incoming messages to the parent
• Remove images within emails
• Remove links within emails
• Only allow specific attachment types such as: images, pictures, video, mp3s, zip, pdf, Word, Excel, Power Point, etc.
• Allow a parent to approve or deny any email sent to your children via the mail queue
• Only allow children to send email to those in their contact list
• Email a copy of outgoing messages to the parent
• Filter out offensive words found in incoming emails
• Spam filtering
• Several templates to choose from
• A simple mode for young children as well as an advance mode for slightly older kids
