Pumpic Joins the Anti-Bullying Alliance in Combating Cyberbullying


Taking care of children and family safety, Pumpic (pumpic.com) is pleased to announce that from now on, the company is an associated member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) a British coalition of organizations and individuals who work together to stop bullying and create a secure environment for kids.

Overland Park, KS, April 29, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Mobile devices used widely all over the world threaten children’s security and expose them to danger coming from both the web and offline. However, if used wisely, they can do the opposite and help parents protect their kids. Years of experience let Pumpic create an effective tool in combating cyberbullying, which is one of the most violent issues children face.

Due to the technological progress, more and more children become victims of factors closely connected with the use of Internet and electronic devices. Cyberbullying, attacks of online predators, identity theft — these are only a few from a huge list of possible threats.

Today the majority of kids use mobile gadgets for communication purposes and online activity. According to recent statistics by Pew Research Center’s Teen Relationship Survey, 92% of teens go online daily. At the same time, 8 in 10 children of 13-17 years old own smartphones and use this particular device to go online rather than a PC.

On one hand, smartphones provide children with freedom and opportunities. On the other one, they make it hard for parents to follow kids, protect, and control them appropriately. This is where Pumpic parental control comes to the rescue by offering a remote mobile monitoring app.

The main part of the cooperation between Pumpic and ABA is spreading the word about dangers children may face in the modern world of online reality and mobile devices. All of their efforts and means are forwarded towards this global issue as well as a message that it must be considered carefully and controlled wisely.

“Pumpic is based in the United States, where it works hard sharing the information on how to resist cyberbullying. But unfortunately, cyberbullying has already become the issue spread far beyond the

U.S. borders. The cooperation with ABA will help us bring children’s online security to a new international level,” says Alex Stevenson, Pumpic PR manager. “The significant research carried out by ABA in Great Britain will help us reasonably improve services that Pumpic provides. We are sure that our cooperation will result in new achievements connected with combatting cyberbullying and provision of information to parents.”
