NEW FEATURE: My Buddy Page!

We have added a brand new feature to SurfBuddies. We call it My Buddy Page. My Buddy Page allows your child to post their very own Personal Web Page which CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED BY PEOPLE YOU APPROVE.

Your child can post their favorite pictures, a description of your last vacation, or whatever they want to share with family and friends. The good news is that ONLY PEOPLE YOU HAVE APPROVED IN THEIR BUDDY LIST CAN VIEW THE PAGE!

Family and friends can post comments on the page so your child can experience the interactions of Social Networking within the safety of the SurfBuddies environment. Of course all text of the My Buddy Page is run through our Personal Information Filter and Profanity Filters.

Control and Alerts: You can choose to enable or disable your child's My Buddy Page. You can also choose to be alerted via email whenever anyone leaves a comment on the page. Finally, you can review all visitors and comments through the Parental Administration web site. Nothing your child does will be done in secret. You have access to all and control of all.

Highlighted Safeguards:

  • Buddy List. Operates on both incoming and outgoing mail.
  • System maintained black list of known spammers. Hundreds of thousands of SPAM sources blocked. List is updated daily.
  • Profanity filter.
  • Personal Info filter. Does not allow sending personal information.
  • Blocks email with malicious attachments.
  • Parental Controls are all password protected.
  • Option to copy parent on all emails sent and received by the child. Allows parents to keep a watchful eye on what their child is being exposed to.

SPAM Firewall Protection

SurfBuddies uses a 4 level anti-SPAM protection firewall to eliminate unwanted emails. Our SPAM firewall not only relies on known spammers black lists, but also scans each message for a wide variety of spammers' tricks. In short, our SPAM firewall works very well.

Incoming emails are scanned and either approved, removed or quarantined. Quarantined messages are placed in a special "Blocked Messages" folder on our servers which cannot be accessed by the child. Only a responsible adult using the "Parent Password" can view the messages in this folder. The blocked messages can then be deleted or the sender approved, added to the child's buddy list and the email moved into the child's inbox. Simple and effective!


  • Access email from iPod, iPad, iPhone and Android.
  • Send & receive text messages to and from cell phones.
  • Multiple "skins" so children can choose the look they like best.
  • Sound effects.
  • Selection of fun animated cursor effects.
  • Custom folders for organizing emails.
