uKnow technology powers smart tools that
connect and protect digital families

Parenting is hard, Digital Parenting is harder. uKnowKids makes digital parenting easier, and keeps kids safer online and on the mobile phone.

uKnowKids, the world’s first Parental Intelligence service, helps moms and dads keep their kids safe on their iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Android mobile phones by giving parents an inside look at their social network activities, text messages, iMessages, phone calls, digital contacts, installed mobile apps, and photos they share with their friends and strangers.

uKnowID helps you protect and manage your social network identity.

In today’s digital world, our personal information is sprinkled across social media networks and is available to friends and strangers alike. The soon-to-be released uKnowID mobile app constantly analyzes your digital footprint on these sites and provide real-time protection and guidance to help you manage your identity, protect your privacy, and safeguard your reputation.

uKnowConnect powers digital family protection apps and services for enterprises including social identity protection, family locator, and parental intelligence products.

The uKnowConnect platform, consisting of content, data, APIs, and software, has been deployed by leading identity protection companies, ISPs, security companies, and other service providers, as well as our own consumer brands, to power smart tools that connect and protect digital families.
