Riding a bicycle can be dangerous so we teach our children about safety and provide safety equipment such as a helmet. Protecting your child when they use this wonderful video call technology should also be a priority.
Designed by EasyBits in conjunction with Skype, Skypito is an application you can download free of charge. It is designed for children two to fourteen years of age to help them feel independent while using the computer, at the same time, it is a safety feature which gives parents control of the child’s contact list.
Parents preapprove, with a password, those individuals with whom a child is allowed to chat. The child friendly graphics and games make this program kid friendly. It
requires the regular Skype program to be downloaded as well. Explore Skypito at www.skypito.com.
Just as there are telephone scams, there are also online scams—be aware and take precautions. Keep your child safe.
