Safety, safety, safety… At kajeet, keeping your kids safe is as important to us as it is to you. And this never gets easier. Rapidly changing technology and an increase in our kids’ media use leads to new worries and new challenges you face as a parent every day. It sure can be overwhelming! That’s why we’re always working to make sure our cell phone service is the safest one for kids.

And why we like to make sure you know about other products that we believe can also help keep your kids safe, like Safeguard Connect, featuring My Child Safeguard. This unique service uses your cell phone to safeguard your kids, their identity and property by allowing you to be contacted directly without revealing any personal information or your phone numbers.

How does it work? Think of My Child Safeguard as your kid’s new ID tag – but better. Your child’s personal information (name, address and phone number) is replaced by a toll-free 800 number and a unique member ID# for emergency situations. Wristbands with the ID# can also be worn in case of separation. To directly reach a parent or guardian, a caller dials the toll-free number and references the ID#. The call is immediately transferred to both parents’ cell phones (up to 4 phones) for the safety, health and welfare of your children. Safe and secure – just like kajeet.

And, for a limited time, kajeet customers can save 20% on a Safeguard Connect membership by entering KAJEET at checkout. Click here to learn more about the service and to get started today.

Parenting Picks Kajeet!

August 5, 2010

Feeling frustrated when it comes to deciding the right time to give your kid a cell phone?

You’re not alone. It’s a challenge that parents in today’s world can’t seem to avoid. It’s also the reason that Parenting gathered a panel of experts together to develop their Guide to Tech Gear for Kids, a list of selected products ideal for easing kids (and their parents) into the digital age. And one of the services highlighted is kajeet!

The Parenting panel liked how kajeet’s family-focused parental controls allow moms and dads to set limits on calls, texts and times when the phone can be used. They also liked the built-in GPS Phone Locator service (free for the first month for new accounts!) and kajeet’s low priced plans. We’re excited to be acknowledged by this panel of experts!
