What is the Story of ScreenRetriever, Children’s (Windows) Tablet/PC Monitoring Software?
Who Are We?
We are parents just like you! We have two wonderful teenage daughters and invented ScreenRetriever to help keep them safe online. The online world is an interactive world, where kids can engage with anyone across the globe and be exposed to all kinds of content good and bad. When kids go online they are exposed to risks from online predators, inappropriate content, inappropriate games, apps etc. Their online behavior can also put them at risk for cyberbullying, sexting, and posting content or images that can affect their future.
We wanted to be able to “parent online” just as we do offline, so that we could teach our girls safe, appropriate responsible online behavior. Being very savvy computer users, they were able to circumvent every blocking and filtering device that we had tried so ScreenRetriever really came to our rescue.
ScreenRetriever lets us easily and quickly monitor All of their online activity and behavior. When we check-in on their activity, an icon changes color so they know that we can see if they are following our online code of conduct and safety rules. It’s opened up the lines of communication about appropriate online activity and behavior. When we are not home or they take their computer to a friends house, we check-in using the recording feature.
Our teens have really learned the rules of the computer “road”, so that we are able to check-in less frequently. We are confident that they have learned to navigate and interact in the online world as responsible digital citizens. We hope ScreenRetriever gives you the same peace of mind that it’s given us, knowing that you will be able to stay on top of an ever challenging online world and help to keep your kids safe online.
By the way, the ScreenRetriever icon is our awesome family dog, Tucker. : )
