About SafeToNet

We are an award winning, next generation digital parenting solution. It is aimed at families with children from 6-16 and we are focusing on helping parents with the issues of sexting, managing time spent on-line, cyberbullying, trolling, abuse, aggression and sextortion on social networks and messaging apps. What makes us different is that SafeToNet is a cognitive computing system. It uses natural language processing, big data analytics and all within a machine learning environment. This allows us to contextualise content (including emojis) and tell the difference between banter and aggression. We then block harmful incoming and outgoing messages in real time on a child’s device before it is seen and before the damage is done - no other company is doing this. We do not show the parents the messages, we do not snoop - we simply give a notification that there is a statistical chance that there is a risk (e.g. of sexting) and we offer advice and guidance right there and then from experts in this subject. Our software runs on iOS and Android devices and will soon be available on Windows devices too. We also provide a digital parenting resource which guides on other risks of the social web in according to the threats we identify.

Our first version, which is currently in trial, offers parents the ability to manage their child’s device remotely by viewing the apps they have downloaded and giving them (the parent) the ability to block individual apps, time-block apps or block the whole device. In September our first intelligent feature will be available and that will block sexting. Beyond that we will be introducing intelligent website blocking, sentiment analysis, machine learning to block harmful content and users and much much more.

Our vision is to become the Cybersafety platform for safeguarding children that people, businesses and government use to transform the fabric of communities, globally.

SafeToNet has an entrepreneurial Founder & CEO who, supported by an incredible team, has built the company over the last 2 years.
