Bay Area company improves online safety for children

Noah KindlerNoah Kindler

Noah Kindler, Co-founder of SocialShield, the San Bruno-based leading online monitoring service for kids’ social networking activities, recently received a special congressional certificate recognizing his company’s “Outstanding Work in Improving Internet Safety for Children.”

What does it mean to be nationally recognized for the work you’ve done with SocialShield? It feels really good. I started this company almost two years ago. You work hard and definitely make sacrifices. You see yourself helping out parents and kids, and that just feels really, really good.

How does the site work? The service has been designed to be really easy … we are social networking experts. Parents sign up and they give us some basic information on the child. From that, we have a great system that’s able to analyze what their children are doing.

Is the service free? We have a website and an 800 number for people who are more comfortable talking on the phone. We have a version that shows parents the analysis and what we do and what we’ve discovered. And then we charge $10 a month.
