VISR.CO Mission

We’re on a mission to connect families around issues that matter. We help parents help children navigate technology safely. We're Safer Together.

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.

Quote

“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

FAQ

Who can see my alerts?

Only you. All alerts are strictly generated by our algorithms. At no point is there any human intervention involved in generating your alerts.

What issues do you identify?

We scan for 22+ alert types (and counting!) including: bullying, late night usage, drugs, violence, inappropriate images, explicit language, more coming soon

How does VISR detect issues?

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.

Can I tell VISR what I’m concerned about?

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.

If this technology is so great, why is it free?

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.

What happens if VISR misses something?

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. :)

What social networks are currently supported?
