WebProtectMe™ Initiates Real-Time Internet Detection of Emotional & Mental Health Vulnerabilities of Troubled Adults & Adolescents

Pressemitteilung / Press Release

October 2017 (Boise, ID USA): DigiTar announced today the enhancement of its WebProtectMe™ Mobile Device cloud protection services with advanced Mental Health Filtering Expertise known as BeCalmassistive streaming procedures.

BeCalm™: What is it?

Today, many teenagers, face some form of physical embarrassment or social stigma in their life causing them to react with “Self-Harm”; a growing phenomenon affecting both teenagers and adults, consisting of behaviors such as cutting, burning, over-dosing, pinching, causing damage to the skin and body and is most prevalent in teenage girls.

DISTRACTION is key to avoiding the temptation to self-harm. By immediately changing the thought processes and be actively challenged – the urge can pass. Using DigiTar’s WebProtectMe safe browser, all web search traffic is routed through our filtering servers to protect and secure search requests and data.

We also added BeCalm™ screening, as an extra level of advanced protection for our Premium Mobile Cloud protected subscribers. When BeCalm is enabled, WebProtectMe will continually analyze all web search requests for possible compulsive self-harming content or predispositions.

What’s the Benefit?

Immediate Intervention!  Self-Harm has a ”notice me” component, usually linked with depression, that’s compulsive and overwhelming. The person feels out of control and is unable to stop it once started.

BeCalm fosters the development of good mental health through early detection and prompt intervention.

Collaboration with Healthcare professionals, via WebProtectMe-Guardian reporting, provides progress and relapse evidence for young people, their families, and to help the individual enhance their resilience and sense of individual responsibility.

BeCalm focuses on early awareness and intervention in eating disorders, depression, anxiety, self-harm, and addiction.

Best of all, BeCalm™ is included with WebProtectMe™ Premium at no extra charge.

Church Keeps Families Safe & Accountable Online

Kids stumble on graphic pictures. Lonely students search for information on violence and suicide. Good men and husbands struggle with the powerful temptation of pornography.

These aren’t problems that affect other people; they’re hard challenges our families deal with.

Big Bear Baptist WPM Flyer

Luke Angus at First Baptist Church of Big Bear Valley was searching for a way to help families in the community ensure the positive web experiences they wanted. First Baptist reaches roughly 150 kids in their area in middle school, high school, and some college age as well.

“There aren’t that many solutions for families out there, and everything I tested left a lot to be desired,” said Luke. It was then he discovered WebProtectMe. Its family and parental controls acted less like a snooping hall monitor and more like a trusted trail guide, helping families keep away from the dangers and pitfalls of the full internet in their pocket while providing peace of mind and increased trust for every member of the family.

“What impressed me the most is it actually works as a web browser. That was the biggest problem with the other solutions I tried: They were very slow and crashed so much, they were just unusable.”  A child might have to live with that, but no teenager or adult would put up with it, Luke explained. He was surprised when WebProtectMe not only provided great filtering, but was actually reliable and well maintained—crafted with the web experience an adult would expect.

Protecting Families & Guiding Accountability

“The search for a solution started with our high school guys group…it’s a pretty powerful thing for a teenage guy to ask his parents for help staying accountable rather than the other way around.  Apple’s built-in parental controls were largely worthless…so many false positives I had to go through nearly every site on a regular basis and whitelist each one. WebProtectMe’s ability to whitelist sites remotely is genius and incredibly helpful. Some of my high school guys served as testers for  other safe browser apps, and within a few days, not a single guy would continue using them. They were not well maintained or developed—slow, crashy, and unreliable.

WebProtectMe has worked really well and they’ve been very supportive of us and our program.”
