RatedSafe Educates FOX News Morning Show Viewers on Protecting Kids From Cyber-Bullying With WebSafety's Advanced Parental-Control Mobile App
BOCA RATON, Fla., Apr 25, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- WQN, Inc. (Pink Sheets:WQNI), set to appear on FOX's morning show "My FOX Detroit" on Thursday April 26th. Teresa Ambroz the company's spokes person and technology advocate will discuss RatedSafe's distribution model for WebSafety's (OTCBB:WBSI) parental-control mobile application that allows parents to monitor inappropriate text messaging activities on a child's mobile phone. The monitoring capability of the application allows parents to protect their children from bullying, offensive and predatory communications.
The WebSafety app filters mobile phone texting or email communications through the world's largest word-recognition library of words, slang terms, and catch phrases involving cyber-bullying, sexual behavior, and harmful activities involving threats, or predatory comments, "sexting", and references to self-harm, suicide, drug use, gun use, and more. Suspicious words or phrases automatically trigger email and text-message alerts to parents that include the entire email exchange or text-message dialog thread of the child's mobile phone communications in question.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to appear on 'My FOX Detroit,'" said Michael Adler CEO of WQNI. "This allows us the chance to enlighten the morning show audience to technology that can help protect against social pressures such as cyber-bulling, that 1 in 4 kids in America face every day."
WQNI recently announced a retail program with AT&T and Verizon authorized dealers throughout the Michigan area offering the parental-control mobile app for a monthly fee of $7.99.
RatedSafe was recently featured on NBC Miami educating viewers about keeping kids safe behind the wheel.
