Germany, September 13, 2023 – Safes, a leading parental control and digital wellbeing app, has achieved a new milestone by surpassing 1 million installs on the Google Play Store. This remarkable achievement demonstrates the growing demand among parents worldwide for tools to protect their children in the digital age.
Powered by Sternx Technology, Safes empowers parents to monitor their children’s phone activities, manage app usage, block inappropriate content and set screen time limits. The easy-to-use app provides unparalleled visibility into a child’s digital habits and gives parents remote control over their child’s Android device.
“Reaching over 1 million installs shows that Safes is resonating with parents globally who want to keep their kids safe online,” said Mr. Saeid Alirezaei, Founder and CEO of Sternx Technology. “With the proliferation of smartphones and social media, more parents are recognizing the urgent need to be proactive about their child’s digital wellbeing.”
Since its launch in 2021, Safes has grown rapidly and is now used in over 81 countries worldwide. With highly customizable parental controls, intelligent content filters and precise location tracking, Safes provides parents with one of the most comprehensive sets of features on the market to monitor their child’s digital life. The app sends parents timely activity reports and alerts about potential risks, such as cyberbullying, explicit content or violent games.
“As parents ourselves, we designed Safes as an intuitive yet robust tool we’d want for our own kids. Achieving this 1 million installs milestone proves Safes is hitting that sweet spot and giving parents the right level of oversight for today’s hyper-digital world,” added Mr. Alirezaei.
Subsequent, to the consumer app, Safes recently launched Safes School – an innovative web-based parental control dashboard designed specifically for academic institutions. Safes School allows teachers and school administrators to actively monitor student’s devices, block inappropriate apps and websites, limit screen time and track concerning online activities. This ensures a safe digital learning environment whether students are in the classroom, at home, or on the go.
Early feedback for Safes School has been overwhelmingly positive. “Safes School has been a total gamechanger for our school’s online safety efforts,” said Mrs. Jennifer Taylor, Principal at Springdale Public School. “It lets us protect students from digital harms during school hours. Parents also love getting actionable summaries of their child’s online activity.”
Safes School is all set to be used by leading schools in GCC and will be expanding internationally in 2023. “We are thrilled to empower schools with the tools they need to create safe digital environments that support education. The response so far has exceeded our expectations,” said Mr. Alirezaei.
With the global parental control software market estimated to reach $2.7 billion by 2025, Safes is poised for continued exponential growth in the years ahead. “Hitting 1 million installs is just the beginning. Our vision is for Safes to become the universal platform of trust for parents worldwide seeking to guide their children to become responsible digital citizens,” concluded Mr. Alirezaei. Sternx Technology has aggressive plans to further innovate Safes and rapidly expand to new platforms beyond Android.
