Award for SMS filter to reduce bullying

Anam : 25 June, 2009  (New Product)
Best Social Use award for mobile phone application for filtering unwanted messages from mobile phones
Anam, a pioneer of SMS Smart Services, was last night awarded with a Global Messaging Award for the best Social Use Application for the SMS Bully Filter it has provided for Telenor.

Telenor's Bully Filter service was launched in November 2008 and is powered by Anam's Parental Control solution to give parents peace of mind over their children's mobile phone usage by stopping undesirable, unwanted or distressing messages.

The service is activated by registering the mobile number of each child's phone to a guardian or parent's account. Once a parent has registered a child's mobile phone account they can choose to activate a whole range of monitoring and control facilities such as using a simple black list command to block undesirable SMSs. This helps to block unwanted users from sending unwanted messages.

85% of Norwegian parents think that mobile phones help to make bullying more common, while almost half of Norwegian children have committed mobile bullying or know people who have. Anam's Parental Control technology has allowed Telenor to introduce a service that provides parents and children with increased protection and security.

"Reducing instances of bullying for Telenor's subscribers was the main goal," said Gerry McKenna, CEO of Anam who was received the award on behalf of Anam at last night's event.

"However, it is always nice to be recognised by your peers," McKenna continued. "We're delighted to have won this award and it highlights the hard work and dedication that everyone at Anam has put in to develop our award-winning solutions."

Anam's Parental Control solution also offers additional features that can also be accessed directly from the handset of the parent (or child if they are authorised), including parameters and controls that can be set to help a child take responsibility for their level of mobile usage and expenditure. High watermark alarms or warning messages enable parents to monitor and control their child's phone usage. Parents can impose short periods of 'study time' during which messages cannot be sent from or delivered to the child's handset, but stored for later delivery.
