PALM SPRINGS, CA -- May 18, 2017 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire – Swantry (www.swantry.com), a cutting-edge monitoring and control app that provides Parents, Schools and Caregivers a secure way to monitor and set controls on children’s smartphones and tablets, is set for release in both the US and Europe and is expected to fulfill the exponentially growing need for child protection and privacy online. Swantry has been developed by WorldFlix (OTC: WRFX), along with its subsidiary Paranotek, and includes sought after privacy, monitoring and control features such as geofencing, internet boundary features, real time notifications and alarms and end-to-end encryption cybersecurity.
Theresa May, UK’s Prime Minister, recently stated that she would push to require social media providers such as Twitter and Facebook to allow anyone under the age of 18 to be able to delete their online history, according to Bloomberg. May, and her Conservative Party, are making this stand in an effort to protect children online, the same primary objective as Swantry. Notably, May is pressing for regulation that would fine companies if they break proposed rules on hate speech, pornography and other content that is particularly harmful to children. According to May, child abuse online is devastating and a global issue, as interacting with children online from anywhere in the world is as simple as a click of a mouse or the push of a button.
“We have been aggressively marketing Swantry across the US and are now expanding our efforts into the UK and the rest of the European market. We see the protection and privacy of children online as not only a priority to anyone who is a parent or caregiver but also as a huge global market, worth billions of dollars globally over the next 10 years. Agencies such as COP, or Child Online Protection, endorsed by the UN and countries around the world, and growing regulations in both the US and Europe will continue to support and enforce rules to protect children from online dangers and predators. Our app Swantry is ready to provide the protection those regulators are looking for. Swantry even monitors the child while still protecting their privacy. Other apps currently on the market just do not do that as well as we do. In fact, some of those other apps would violate some of the privacy laws in the US and Europe. Swantry is positioned perfectly for the European market while other apps do not have the functionality in place to meet the regulations for both protection and privacy,” stated Brad Listermann, Chairman and CEO of WorldFlix. “We are pushing Swantry to the front of both the US and European markets and are ready to expand the app’s backend capacity as our user base grows.”
