Murrieta, CA, July 28, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In an effort to protect children and teenagers online, California software developer CyberBully Alert is proud to introduce a ground-breaking new product designed to help the thousands of young people who every day are the victim of the growing crime of cyberbullying.
CyberBully Alert is a web-based solution that simplifies the notification and documentation of cyberbullying. It allows children to instantly send alerts to their parents regarding potentially harmful online conversations and interactions the moment the bullying occurs. With a click of the mouse, parents are notified and the unwanted behavior is stored for future use with school officials, other parents or law enforcement authorities.
Easy-to-use and compatible with all major computers and web-browsers, CyberBully Alert requires only a quick download to get started. Once the simple registration process is complete, the program seamlessly becomes a part of the browser’s tool bar. Parents then enter emails and phone numbers for the adults who will receive the alert. Then, with a live Internet connection, the child can send an instant alert via email and/or text message by clicking on the CyberBully Alert icon.
“We believe that this software is going to put a significant dent in the cyberbullying incidents that have been growing over the past few years” says CyberBully Alert President John Vandenburgh. “With more and more of our children spending time on social networking sites and in chat rooms, this communication is more important than ever. It is the missing link between kids and concerned parents.”
