A New Service Offering for ISPs

Helping Parents Keep Kids Safe Online and in Real Life

 

Next Generation Digital Child & Teen Safety

As a parent, being able to monitor your child’s text messages, social media exchanges, and email messages 24/7 is impossible.

That is why Bark was created. Bark offers a way to more easily and effectively protect children from online dangers such as cyberbullying, sexual predation, suicidal ideation, and more. 

Created in collaboration with child psychologists, youth advisors, digital media experts, and law enforcement professionals, Bark delivers a research-backed, kid-friendly solution for safeguarding families as technology changes how and where we communicate.

A powerful Digital Monitoring Service that you can now offer to customers.

Bark is now integrated into Comtrend gateways, enabling any device on a home network to be automatically protected from potentially dangerous problems online. An existing Comtrend gateways would only require a firmware upgrade to begin offering the Bark service. In mixed-vendor CPE environments, a Bark Home device can be used to enable Bark on any gateway, router, or modem.


Why is Bark different?

On-the-go Mobile Protection

Unlike other solutions, Bark's protection extends outside of the home. Parents can feel secure knowing their children are safe no matter where they go.

Text & Email Monitoring

Bark has the most coverage of any monitoring tool. Additionally, it monitors audio, video, and images.

Parental Alerts

If Bark detects a potentially dangerous situation or problem, it will send an alert notification to the parent.​

Social Media Monitoring

Parents do not have to keep up with latest trends of social media, because Bark does that for them. Bark covers over 30 of the most popular social apps.

24/7 Detection

Bark doesn't only block activities, it utilizes powerful AI to protect your children around the clock.

Psychologist Recommendations

Bark offers recommendations and resources from psychologists to help parents talk to their children.




The AI Behind Bark

Bark’s unprecedented artificial intelligence (AI) does more than flag simple keywords. Its algorithm analyzes language and conversations in context and is trained to recognize the ever-evolving nuances of kid, tween, and teen slang.

  • Machine-learning technology analyzes context, not just key words.
 
  • Analyzes ever-growing communication like emojis, slang, posts, memes, and images.
 
  • Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) is trained to understand the variations of slang.
 
  • Robust Data Annotation team labels the data each day to enable the algorithm to keep learning.
