SingTel has rolled out a free app, 'notAnoobie', which is a cyber wellness mobile application designed in a move to help parents better understand and protect their children from online risks.
One can download 'notAnoobie' on Apple iTunes Store and Google Play Store.
Financing for the development of app was done by Singtel and the firm has also joined hands with TOUCH Cyber Wellness to develop the content for the app, leveraging the company's experience in cyber wellness education and counseling.
With the help of 'notAnoobie' parents will be able to gain deeper insights into their children s online activity while on-the-go. It even helps them to protect their children from cyber treats, including bullying.
Eugene Seow, Executive Director, TOUCH Community Services said, Many parents have told us that they are often clueless about their children s online activities. Yet, they are and should be the first line of defence when their children run into problems. With notAnoobie, they can now keep abreast on new media information and are better empowered to guard their children from digital pitfalls, while guiding them to become responsible online citizens. Andrew Buay, Vice President, Group Corporate Social Responsibility, SingTel said, As a responsible corporate citizen and the market leader in digital and mobile solutions, SingTel is committed to playing a key role in promoting cyber wellness by leveraging our technologies, capabilities and resources. With notAnoobie, we want to equip both young users and parents with the necessary knowledge to manage their digital footprint, protect their privacy and safety, while enjoying the benefits the online world offers.
