Keep Your Child Safer Online and at Home
Sexual predators targeting children online is a scary reality. The OffenderWatch family safety app helps parents protect their children from the unthinkable. Family location sharing allows parents to track their children on a map and see if registered sex offenders live nearby. Parents can also search for registered sex offenders by name or address, see the photo and details about an offender, submit-a-tip about the offender, contact local law enforcement, and get an alert should a registered sex offender move in nearby. The OffenderWatch app includes friendly advice and articles about protecting your child at home and online.
Unlike other apps, OffenderWatch has partnered with law enforcement to bring the most complete and correct data on registered sex offenders available. Parents subscribe to receive alerts should their child get contacted by a registered sex offender by text, phone call, or email. Parents also receive location alerts should their child linger near a registered sex offender’s home.
A Protect Plus subscription is just $9.99 per year and covers the entire family.
How the OffenderWatch monitoring Works
1 Monitor Your Child’s Device
The OffenderWatch app monitors who calls, emails, or messages your child, and tracks the location on of child’s iPhone—working silently in the background and not interfering with the phone’s use.
2 Check Against Sex Offender Data
We use the most accurate data available. It is provided directly by the law enforcement agencies who manage registered sex offenders. The app checks to see if a registered sex offender is attempting to contact your child or if your child is lingering near an offender’s address.
3 Alert Parents, Offer Assistance
Parents get alerted if a registered offender contacts your child. Ask your child about the communication and talk to them about online safety with people they don’t know in real life. If the contact seems inappropriate or troubling, it is easy to contact law enforcement from the app. Your local law enforcement may then initiate an investigation.
