Never again should a child get thrown into the digital sea without first learning how to swim.
VISR is a simple, effective and kid-friendly tool notifying parents when relevant safety issues such as bullying, risky geotagging, and unusual times of use are detected across social networks.
“Parents don’t know what the issues are or when they are happening. It’s easy to say, have a conversation with your kids, but they don’t know what to have a conversation about or the appropriate time to have the conversation. This will give them the opportunity.” - Robert Reichmann, Watch the interview at Global News
VISR sends you notifications only when there is a potential issue.
VISR customizes alerts so you only get notified of things you care about.
VISR keeps you informed on the latest issues concerning your child.
VISR supports Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, and Gmail.
Only notifying you about flagged activity means your children feel more at ease.
No need to search through all your child's social media activity, we highlight what's important.
Only you. All alerts are strictly generated by our algorithms. At no point is there any human intervention involved in generating your alerts.
We have a team of data scientist dedicated exclusively to identifying threats and issues kids face, and figuring out the best ways to detect them. This includes analyzing text, images and various other factors to help create the most relevant alerts.
When you receive an alert, you can say whether you’d like to see more or less of those types of alerts in the future.
VISR is free for now, but we will soon begin charging $5/ month for it. This will roll out once we’ve launched some of the fantastic functionality and features we’ve got planned.
Nobody is perfect and neither are we. It’s possible that our algorithms could miss something, and we’re upfront about that. We’re doing our best, but nothing can ever replace parenting itself. We always recommend staying astute and informed. Think of us as your partner. Not your replacement. :)
We currently support: Instagram, Tumblr, Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. We’re working on adding more soon!

"I’ve used apps in the past to try and understand what my kids are doing on social, but they bombarded me with things - I got my child’s entire social media feed. It was impossibly time-consuming to read through everything, and felt incredibly invasive. I really like how VISR only notifies me of actual issues and I get to customize which alerts I see and don’t see."
"I knew my child was having difficulty at school but I didn’t know what the actual problems she was facing. VISR helped me see that my daughter was being bullied and by girls that claimed to be her friends too! VISR notified me of specific issues she was facing, like the trash talk she was receiving from her friends over things that were happening in school. It gave me an opportunity to sit down with my daughter and talk through this problem."
"I was never very worried about my child .She’s a great kid and I trusted her to not do anything that may get her into trouble. VISR helped me see that she was indeed a good kid, but she did post some questionable content. She simply didn’t understand the consequences of publicly sharing an instagram photo of herself with a geo-tag of her location. VISR notified us immediately of this issue and provided suggestions, like removing geotagging and making our daughter’s profile private."
