LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TeenSafe, the leading parental smartphone monitoring service, has established the TeenSafe Foundation to make charitable contributions and support initiatives that will help parents address the challenges of raising children in today's digital world.
Contributions made by the Foundation will be sourced through a revenue contribution from the TeenSafe business, and the efforts of the Foundation will be driven by the data and learnings received through the company's daily interactions with parents.
"The creation of the TeenSafe Foundation demonstrates our company's commitment to investing in providing parents with insights and useful resources to help them address the challenges of raising their children in today's complex digital world," said Ralph Acosta, TeenSafe CEO. "Because we speak with hundreds of parents each and every day, we believe the TeenSafe Foundation will be uniquely informed and purposeful in identifying and supporting worthy beneficiaries and strategic initiatives that are aligned with the challenges and issues parents are sharing with us."
"Issues like screen addiction, cyber bullying and sexting are real and can be overwhelming for parents," Acosta said. "The TeenSafe Foundation will be looking to support and partner with subject matter experts, thought leaders, and other like-minded organizations dedicated to making the online world safer for children to provide resources, information and guidance to parents."
"At the end of the day, products like TeenSafe exist to facilitate quality and authentic dialog between parents and their children, and our vision for the TeenSafe Foundation is to help parents effectively manage how the digital world impacts their children's lives," added Acosta.
TeenSafe created the first parental iPhone monitoring solution and is the iOS and Android service of choice among families with over one million sign-ups to date. TeenSafe's secure technology provides parents with the tools to safeguard their children's digital lives through deleted texts, group chat, Kik Messenger and much more. The TeenSafe Foundation will be a sponsor of the second annual Common Sense Media Luncheon in Los Angeles on November 16th, and the Family Online Safety Institute's Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. on December 1st, 2016.
