AUSTIN, TX – AUGUST 22, 2016 - Today CloudLink, LLC, the parent company of ProPack and 4Parents app bundles, announced the addition of Spin SAFE browser to its 4Parents lineup. In an ever-expanding technology environment, parental control and oversight are now more important than ever for kid’s mobile devices.
SPIN Safe Browser is a free web-filter that blocks inappropriate content to provide a safe internet surfing experience for kids. In addition to filtering millions of explicit and inappropriate sites, SPIN leverages the power of Google SafeSearch for search and image results while allowing kids to explore and surf the Internet freely.
SPIN gives parents the comfort and confidence of knowing the digital content their kids may access, either accidently or intentionally, is appropriate and relevant. “I have three daughters, and I am always concerned with what they may come across with just one accidental click,” said Brandon Frye, CEO and Founder of CloudLink. “I have not had one instance where they have asked to have greater access or have been denied any information they have needed with this new browser.”
Parents are passionate about kids, education, and technology. 4Parents is in the parent & family business and believes empowering today’s kids to leverage the vital benefits of a digital life is an important part of their education. Part of parents’ responsibility in today’s world is to provide a safe surfing environment for their children. 4parents app provides just that and much more.
4Parents offers both free and paid bundles of apps that allow parents to leverage technology to protect and manage their family and their devices.
AUSTIN, TX – SEPTEMBER 29, 2015 – There are 2 million first-time drivers each year, 68% of whom admit to texting and driving. As a result, teens are eight times more likely to be in an accident, and sadly, now texting while driving is the #1 killer of young drivers, with over 3,000 deaths per year.
Concordia High School in Austin, TX has teamed up with 4Parents to help put a stop to texting and driving. The 4Parents-LifeSaver app utilizes GPS technology to reduce or stop distracted driving. Now parents can partner with their kids in a responsible strategy to eliminate this risk to both the teen drivers and their passengers.
“Our family of apps empowers parents to become involved in their children’s digital lives. We have a broad list of capabilities to manage and monitor their phones, with one of the most important being to protect young drivers from distracted driving,” says Brandon Frye, Founder.
Many of the Concordia High School students fall into the “first time driver” category. “4Parents is not just of vital interest to parents – it is for anyone who cares about kids, like teachers, schools, churches, and communities. We care about the safety of our student drivers, so we endorse the 4Parents app program and encourage all parents of teens to implement these technology solutions to protect both drivers and passengers,” says David Mueller, Executive Director of Concordia High School – Austin, TX.

AUSTIN, TX – SEPTEMBER 2, 2015 – Today about 80% of U.S. kids have access to a cell phone, with the majority of those children getting their first mobile device at six years old. 4Parents recognizes that this is the first generation of parents extending this level of connectivity to their children.

“With three daughters, our family is constantly on the go. We created a solution to equip parents in this new digital world, both to protect our children and to communicate better as a family. This wasn’t to be intrusive or from a lack of trust, but to provide tools for responsible parenting due to the unbridled reach of our kids’ mobile devices,” says Brandon Frye, Founder.
