Ahead of Safer Internet Day 2018, iKydz met an Taoiseach Leo Varadkar who gave us his seal of approval. In recent weeks, there have been calls on the government to put a ban on smartphones for children under 14.
With iKydz, there is no need for this ban, in fact iKydz gives parents and schools the tools to control what children are accessing online.
As well as the device, iKydz is committed to helping parents stay up to date on all the latest apps and technology to watch out for.

Education is key when it comes to parenting in the digital age.
“10 years ago road safety was a big problem in our country. Now, the first thing a child does in the car is puts on their safety belt. The government went about a very smart campaign and said we need to address this issue, and it’s the exact same with the mobile phones.” –
Jason Sheehy, iKydz Director.
