Parent Information

Families, children, their privacy and safety are why we created GameLand More attention should be given to child safety. We give you the tools you need to keep your children safe and still allow them to participate in a social network.

Parental Controls:

  • Friend requests to and from children require parental approval.

  • Existing friends can be removed by the parent.

  • Parents choose what level of interaction for instance as a child gets older you may want to automatically approve friend requests, but be notified about them.

  • Who visited my child's page option.

  • Allow your child's friends and circle members to give squibbles to your child. So a grandparent can offer a grandchild 100 squibbles to play a game of yippee with them.

  • Monitor your young child's posts and edit it if needed. This feature exceeds COPPA compliance requirement.

  • Choose which parental control options you want. Initially we lock everything down, giving you the opportunity of deciding which features to allow your child to use and when. Choosing "Alert Me" will send you an email notification if triggered.

    • Automatically Approve Friend Requests From Children
      • If another child sends you child a friend request, choosing "Allow" will automatically approve the request.

      • Choowing "Allow" will let your child redeem Squibbles in the prize shop.

  • Reward your child's good behavior by using squibbles as rewards.

    • As a reward for completing a task. i.e. Clean your room and get 100 squibbles.

    • For playing a skill based game or an educational game, or beat a score challenge.

    • Parents can authorize an adult to give Squibbles (a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, etc...).
      • An authorized adult can offer the child a number of Squibbles for playing a game together, or as a gift.

  • Decide when your child is allowed to redeem squibbles from the prize shop.

  • Games are age rated. i.e. A game rating of 10 indicates a child age 10 and over can play this game.
