AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSID, a leading provider of white-labeled solutions that help enterprises, small businesses and consumer subscribers monitor their personal information, business information and more, today announced that their Social Media Monitoring product now includes child monitoring services. This important addition lets businesses enable subscribers with children to monitor privacy and reputational risks, cyber bullying, weapons references, and sexual predator activity for their child’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
CSID’s partners can now offer identity and reputation-related services for the entire household. Social Media Monitoring, now extended to cover children, empowers parents to defend against the growing threats across social media. Social Media Monitoring is available to businesses as a white-labeled solution, and can be rapidly customized and deployed via CSID’s Identity Management Center (IMC).
Ninety-two percent of teens go online daily, with 91 percent of these individuals sharing photos of themselves, and 71 percent sharing the name of the city or town in which they live, according to the Pew Research Center. The information children share online can put them at risk for identity fraud. A child’s activity on social networks can also significantly impact his or her future success. For example, posting socially unacceptable behavior on a social network can have an adverse impact to the child’s chance of college admission. In fact, 35 percent of admissions officers in the same study reported that when checking on a student’s online presence, they found something that negatively impacted an applicant’s chances of getting in, a figure that has nearly tripled from last year.
“In today’s world where children and teens are constantly connected, they may be sharing information that puts them at risk for identity theft, reputation damage, or worse,” said Joe Ross, CSID President and Co-Founder. “The new child monitoring services added to our Social Media Monitoring product will allow businesses to provide subscribers with children peace of mind, knowing that they’ll be alerted if their children are sharing any information or engaging in activities via social media that puts them at risk.”
Social Media Monitoring is part of CSID’s suite of white label identity theft offerings, including its proprietary CyberAgent® technology, Non-Credit Services, Child and Family Protection, Financial Account Takeover and Customer Support.
