Woogi World Upgrades Security For Children Via Eguardian

Children’s Way Foundation (the non-profit developer of the children’s virtual world, Woogi World, (http://www.woogiworld.com) and eGuardian (a children’s online protection company) are partnering to lead the way in creating the safest virtual world for children K-6 worldwide.

eGuardian is the only online verification service that offers a foolproof method for verifying the age of children. The company’s technology works with parental controls, site blockers and access restrictors, while providing a deeper layer of protection and a safer environment.

“We are proud to work with premier partners like Woogi World, and supply them with the information they need to create an online community that expands what is possible for kids, while providing parents with peace of mind,” said eGuardian CEO Ron Zayas. “Through the efforts of eGuardian and our partners, Web, email and instant messaging can be made safe, predator-free and appropriate for children of every age.”

While parents and educators have always appreciated the fact that their children and students were engaging in meaningful activities when on Woogi World, with eGuardian they can now rest assured they’re doing so ONLY with children of the appropriate age, dangerous adults or malicious content simply cannot get through to Woogi World.”

“The need to certify every social networking audience, no matter the site, is becoming more and more crucial. In keeping with our priority to ensure Woogi World is the safest children’s virtual world available, it makes great sense to partner with eGuardian, the best online protection available, said Scott Dow, CEO of Children’s Way.

“It’s been well established that children can concentrate and learn far better in an environment where they feel safe. The assurance eGuardian gives Woogi World users, in terms of certifying that every Woogi spending time in Woogi World is indeed a CHILD, creates a comfort and confidence level that parents respect, children benefit from, and adds to the value of an already amazing site,” said Dr. Kimberly Young, CW Academic Advisory Board member.
