The Only Cyberbullying and Protection Software Available for Children’s PC Games, Kidas’ AI-Powered Text and Voice Communications Platform Alerts Parents of Online Threats

PHILADELPHIA, May 10, 2024 – Kidas (“the Company”), a technology company developing AI-powered text and voice communication tools to shield gamers and users of gaming apps from toxicity, cyberbullying and other predatory behavior, announced today that its proprietary ProtectMe software for PCs  is now available for purchase on Walmart.com. As the only cyberbullying and protection software currently on the market for children’s PC games, ProtectMe is offered as a six-month or 12-month subscription for families nationwide.

“Concerns around child safety on popular social media platforms like Meta and TikTok continue to dominate the headlines. It’s vital to remember that toxic behavior is widespread across some of the most popular online video games that children play every day, as well,” said Ron Kerbs, Founder and CEO, Kidas. “Kidas continues to empower families to safeguard their children against online predators and other bad actors who seek to exploit their vulnerabilities. We are proud to have Walmart’s seal of approval and hope to have the opportunity to protect the millions of households that shop at Walmart with ProtectMe. By continuing to expand our reach and offering, our goal is to provide safety and peace of mind to as many families as possible across the U.S.”

ProtectMe is an advanced text and voice communication software that alerts parents of serious online threats (i.e., cyberbullying, online predators, sexual content, hate speech, financial scams and other toxic behaviors) and allows them to shield their children from such events without invading their privacy. Parents review weekly reports summarizing their child’s gaming activity and obtain personalized recommendations written by experts on how to communicate and resolve dangerous situations that their kids may encounter. Immediate threats are sent via SMS alerts.

Developed by former national security and technology experts from the Israeli military, Kidas’ technology complies with the strictest U.S. privacy regulations, including COPPA and CCPA. Kidas is the last line of defense against online predators trying to negatively impact children’s gaming experiences.
