When I first started KidText it was because I was looking for a way to safely communicate with my kids. Other services are either open to everyone or have ads on the kid’s device. I was reading a review the other day for another service that made this point:
I love the fact you get a free number and able to call and text for free. However, this was for my daghter’s tablet, and now she gets random phone calls and text messages from people. Product as described. However, caution if this will be used by young kids.
Exactly what I didn’t want for my kids. That is why we’ve designed our app the way we have. If you haven’t added an adult/phone number to your account, your kid can’t send or receive messages.
