The Biggest Threat on the Digital Playground: Cyber-bullying


Press Release from Pandora Corp., which issues a reminder to parents: The end of cyberbullying begins at home. Parents need to know what their kids are doing online and how they are interacting in the digital world. Knowledge comes from monitoring computer and internet activity with programs like PC Pandora.

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2009 — Note to parents: “Cyberbullying is real and it’s here to stay —until you do something about it!” That is the message that Pandora Corp., makers of PC Pandora computer monitoring software, wants you to hear loud and clear, as the mid-summer blues hit and your kids spend more time online.

“Cyberbullying is the biggest online threat facing young Internet users today,” says James Leasure, co-founder of Pandora Corp. “Of course, other threats like Internet predators do still exist, but statistically, kids have a much greater chance of being involved in some way with electronic bullying.”

While states and school districts scramble to introduce bills and adopt policies to help curb cyberbullying, parents have access to technology tools that will let them know what their kids are doing online at home. Pandora Corp’s flagship computer monitoring software, PC Pandora, works like a DVR for the PC, taking sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the computer, so parents can play back and watch all activity.

PC Pandora captures further details of user activity in text-based files. Instant messenger chats, emails, websites, keystrokes, peer-2-peer files traded, and programs accessed are all recorded and documented for parental review. PC Pandora lets parents set up Internet filters and program blocks to make sure their kids aren’t accessing programs or content that parents find objectionable. There is also the invaluable IRIS feature that will email a busy parent at work with updates on child activity. Full press release.
