playPORTAL Is Changing The Way Families Connect To the Digital World
On Monday, July 9, Dynepic's CEO, Krissa Watry, visited Fox24 Charleston to talk about her inspiration for the playPORTAL platform and why its impact on how families connect is so critical.
“Our mission is to safely connect kids to the digital world,” says Watry. “In the US, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires a parent's consent before a child under the age of 13 uses a website or a mobile app to ensure that personal data is properly protected with the ability to delete it. This is why so many popular apps these days are not privacy-approved for kids.”
