Seems like my kids are anxious to use the internet like their older siblings or Mom. I think it is a great tool for keeping in touch with family and friends that live out of town. However there are always safety concerns and that is where Kidsmail.org comes in.
Kidsmail is full of safety features. My 8 year old has been using Kidsmail to chat with her grandma. She loves it, she gets to work on her letter writing skills, and she gets to keep in touch with family. I like it because I get peace of mind and a safe experience for my daughter.
You can log in from the main sight and edit settings and/or add a child:
To make it easy to remember the kids can log in at Kmail.org:
It is easy for my daughter to use and looks and runs like any other email just with safety galore… Here is what my daughter’s screen looks like. There are a lot of background images to choose from in the settings section, my daughter chose a wolf. We can create folders, choose contacts from lists and write an email like any other program but again with many safety options.
Here are all the great safety features available:
Several options and features are available to keep your child safe:
- Allow child to only receive and send emails from those in their contact list
- Email a copy of incoming and outgoing messages to the parent
- Remove images within emails
- Remove links within emails
- Only allow specific attachment types such as: images, pictures, video, mp3s, zip, pdf, Word, Excel, Power Point, etc.
- Allow a parent to approve or deny any email sent to your children via the mail queue
- Filter out offensive words found in incoming emails
- Spam filtering
- Kids can modify the look and feel of their account by choosing from several fun templates
- A simple mode for young children as well as an advance mode for slightly older kids
- Mail Monitoring – Parents are able to receive a copy of all incoming and/or outgoing email that is sent to/from your child. This is a simple setting that can be enabled/disabled if desired.
- Time Restrictions – You can choose to restrict times of the day and days of the week that your child can login. You can even specify certain period of time and display a custom message from you when they attempt to log in.
- Contact Manager – You can add family and friends to your child’s contact list. You can also deny the sending and/or receiving of emails to/from anyone not belonging to that child’s contact list.
- The Mail Queue – The Mail Queue allows the parent to intercept an email that failed the safety rules that you set for your child (such as someone not in their contact list attempting to send them an email). The parent can then approve the email to be sent to their child or deny and remove the email from the mail queue.
- Block Individual Senders – If you allow your child to receive email from anyone, you can still block specific people by adding them to a custom blacklist.
- Activity Logs – Logs when your child logs in and when they attempted to log in during a restricted time. Custom Mailbox Folders Your child can create their own custom mail folders to organize received email.
- Help – We are here to support you.
