Detect Trouble Early.
Terms like cyberstalking and digital kidnapping may not have existed when you were a child, but they are unfortunately a common part of the daily news now. “Don’t talk to strangers” is still sound advice, but it doesn’t help fend off predators hiding behind the privacy of the Internet.
As the FBI puts it, “Unfortunately the same advances in computer and telecommunication technology that allow our children to reach out to new sources of knowledge and cultural experiences are also leaving them vulnerable to exploitation and harm by computer-sex offenders.”
Bark helps parents spot trouble early on – identifying strange requests, messages and interactions – so they can get involved when necessary and help their children stay safe online. When you set up Bark and connect your child’s mobile, email and social media accounts, you receive timely notifications when potential threats like online predators arise. Plus, Bark gives you tips and action steps to cut-off Internet predators before they have time to do real damage.
