We designed BrightCanary to encourage ongoing dialogue between parents and kids about their online activities and text messages. Most children are open to using BrightCanary once they understand its purpose and how it works, and some parents choose to make using BrightCanary a condition for their child's device usage. Our approach allows families to tailor the level of supervision to fit their needs, providing more oversight for younger children and gradually increasing independence for older, more mature kids, all under a parent's guidance and support.
