Last year, my 10 year old son asked me for his own email address. I set him up with an account but I still have to worry about SPAM and viruses and I am constantly reminding him that he shouldn’t click on any links, to make sure he is responding to people he actually knows and that he isn’t reading anything from people he doesn’t know.
And then kidsemail.org came into our lives.
With a safe and easy to use email interface, your children will be able to keep in contact with parents and grandparents. With our parental controls, spam filtering, and many useful features, you can decide how much control to give your child when communicating with others online.
I signed my son up right away and was pleasantly surprised to see so many options available and set up by the parents.
- Allow child to only receive and send emails from those in their contact list
- Email a copy of incoming and outgoing messages to the parent
- Remove images within emails
- Remove links within emails
- Only allow specific attachment types such as: images, pictures, video, mp3s, zip, pdf, Word, Excel, Power Point, etc.
- Allow a parent to approve or deny any email sent to your children via the mail queue
- Filter out offensive words found in incoming emails
- Spam filtering
- Kids can modify the look and feel of their account by choosing from several fun templates
- A simple mode for young children as well as an advance mode for slightly older kids
When my son log into Kids Safe Email, I don’t worry about what he is going to see or what he is going to accidentally open. And as he gets older, he’ll still be able to use this same email.
And that is a load off my back!
