Why GameSafe???

Posted in Posts

As we have seen in recent news, such as the FTC fining Fortnite maker Epic Games for $520 million over children’s privacy charges (https://techcrunch.com/2022/12/19/ftc-fines-fortnite-maker-epic-games-520m-over-childrens-privacy-charges/), it is more important than ever for parents to be vigilant about their children’s online safety. GameSafe.AI offers a solution to this problem by providing a powerful and effective way to protect children from online predators and harmful chats while they play games like Roblox and Minecraft. By using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to monitor chat conversations and flag inappropriate content, GameSafe.AI helps to keep children safe and ensure that they have a positive and enjoyable gaming experience.

One of the key features of GameSafe.AI is its ability to alert parents to potentially harmful chats that their kids are receiving while playing these games. This includes chats that contain sexual conversations, requests for personal identifying information, plans to meet up, requests for relationships or pictures, racism, hate speech, or vulgar conversations.

One of the main ways that GameSafe.AI protects children from harmful chats is by using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to monitor chat conversations in real-time. These algorithms are able to identify words and phrases that may indicate inappropriate or harmful content, such as explicit language or threats. When such content is detected, the system immediately intervenes by either blocking the message from being sent or sending a warning to the sender.

In addition to blocking inappropriate messages, GameSafe.AI also alerts parents to any potentially harmful chats their children receive. This is done through the use of notifications, which are sent to the parent’s phone or email whenever the system detects a potentially harmful chat. These notifications provide parents with the information they need to take immediate action to protect their children, such as blocking the sender or reporting the chat to the game’s moderators.

One of the key benefits of GameSafe.AI is that it helps to protect children from a wide range of potential threats, including sexual conversations, requests for personal identifying information, plans to meet up, and requests for pictures or other favors. These types of chats can be particularly dangerous, as they may indicate an attempt by an online predator to groom or exploit a child. GameSafe.AI can identify and block these interactions, helping keep children safe from harm.

In addition to protecting children from sexual conversations and requests for personal identifying information, GameSafe.AI also helps to prevent racism, hate speech, and vulgar conversations. These types of chats can be extremely harmful and negatively impact a child’s mental health and well-being. By detecting and blocking these types of conversations, GameSafe.AI helps to create a safer and more positive online environment for children.

Overall, GameSafe.AI is a valuable tool for parents looking to protect their children from online predators and harmful chats while they play games like Roblox and Minecraft. With its ability to monitor chat conversations in real-time and alert parents to potentially harmful content, GameSafe.AI helps keep children safe and ensure a positive and enjoyable gaming experience. Whether you are a parent of young children or a concerned adult looking to keep kids safe online, GameSafe.AI is a must-have tool that can help you to safeguard the well-being of the children in your life.

An interview…

Posted in Posts

Interviewer: Thank you for joining us today, Sean. Can you tell us a little bit about GameSafe and the work that you do to protect children in online gaming communities?

Sean Bair: Absolutely. GameSafe is a company that is dedicated to creating a safe and positive online gaming experience for children. We understand that online gaming is a popular and fun activity for kids, but it also comes with risks, especially when it comes to interactions with strangers in chat rooms and forums. That’s why we work to educate kids, parents, and game developers about how to recognize and prevent online grooming and exploitation.

Interviewer: That sounds like important work. Can you tell us more about the issue of children being approached in game chats and enticed to send inappropriate pictures?

Sean Bair: Unfortunately, this is a very real and significant problem. Predators will often use chat rooms and forums within games to make contact with children and try to build trust and rapport with them. They may present themselves as fellow gamers or even as friends or mentors. Once they have established a relationship, they may try to convince the child to send inappropriate pictures or videos, either directly or through a third party.

Once these images have been sent, the predator may use AI and other technologies to manipulate or alter the images in order to create even more inappropriate content. They may then use this content to blackmail the child, threatening to share it with their friends or family unless the child agrees to send more explicit material or even meet in person.

Interviewer: That’s really disturbing. What can be done to prevent this from happening and protect children from these kinds of predators?

Sean Bair: There are a few steps that parents and children can take to reduce the risk of being targeted by online predators:

Educate children about online safety and the risks of sharing personal information or images with strangers.

Set limits on the amount of time that children can spend online and monitor their online activities.

Use parental controls to block inappropriate content and restrict access to chat rooms and forums.

Encourage children to speak to a trusted adult if they receive any inappropriate messages or requests for images.

Report any suspicious or concerning behavior to the game developer or to law enforcement.

It’s also important for game developers to take steps to protect children in their communities. This can include implementing stricter moderation policies, providing resources and education for players and parents, and working with law enforcement to identify and stop predatory behavior.

Interviewer: Thank you for sharing that information, Sean. It’s clear that online safety is a critical issue for children and parents to be aware of. Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Sean Bair: I’d just like to emphasize the importance of being vigilant and proactive when it comes to online safety. The internet is a great resource, but it’s important to remember that there are risks involved. By educating ourselves and our children, setting limits, and being aware of the potential dangers, we can help to create a safer online environment for everyone

The idea for GameSafe came into my mind as we encountered a real threat to our children while gaming online. My two daughters love to game, and their favorites at the time were Minecraft and Roblox. These games seemed innocent enough and provided a place to create and socialize with their friends in what appeared to be a safe place.
I travel for work and am a skilled IT professional --so you can imagine the level of security I put in place to protect my children. We have also educated our children on the dangers of the internet and what to look out for. Even with this in place, my youngest daughter was approached by a suspected gamer with nefarious intentions. If we had not educated our children on what to be aware of, the outcome might have been much different!
You can watch the following interview and hear more about the story. Since this interview, we have added proven leadership and expertise to GameSafe, bringing Sean Bair as our CEO and Dr. Lisa Strohman as our COO. I couldn't be more grateful and excited about this company's future and the strength of our threat protection solution!
