PRIVO PROTECT Three Step Sign-Up

step1

First, each parent signs up and provides essential information to verify their identity and preferred methods for PRIVO to provide alerts, notifications, and updates, prior to adding a child.

step2

Second, once the parent has completed the verification process, they will create a password for future logins to the PRIVO PROTECT Family Portal, where they will be able to streamline management of their child’s digital privacy, access and permissions.

step3

Third, each parent will provide essential information regarding the children they are including in the protection registry. This will include the child’s first name and DOB, along with the mobile phone numbers, emails and device id’s for the devices that the child typically uses for online activities. Parents can update this information at any time.

How PRIVO PROTECT will be able to Safeguard Your Child

Just by completing these three simple steps, PRIVO will have sufficient information to signal companies that if your child uses his device to attempt access to an age-restricted website or app, they may not allow access unless the age that YOU have provided meets the minimum age requirement.
  • If the information you provided to PRIVO indicates that your child is too young, they will be blocked.
  • If your child DOES meet the minimum age requirement, the PRIVO service will ensure that you are automatically notified if privacy laws require your consent for any of the services or features offered in a particular app or game.
Enrolling in the PRIVO PROTECT service helps to ensure that your child will receive the protections that are mandated by minors’ privacy laws.


PRIVO PROTECT Makes Companies Accountable to Parents
 
Beyond the baseline, parents may take advantage of other free services, including the option to authorize PRIVO to request their children be blocked from specific age-restricted services for which PRIVO is aware that children regularly gain risky and unauthorized access by simply lying about their ages.

Parents may authorize PRIVO to block children from sites on a PRIVO provided blocking list and may also recommend properties for PRIVO to add.

The PRIVO PROTECT service will put companies on notice that data provided by PARENTS should be the final word used to make real-time decisions to allow or deny a child’s access to their activities. Companies are aware that children often provide false data to access popular activities that they hear about from friends and social media. With the help of PRIVO PROTECT, companies will no longer be able to turn a blind eye that puts children at risk by allowing them into digital spaces that are meant only for adults.
