A leading technology executive, who has developed innovative Smartphone safety apps for parents and kids, is offering back-to-school advice to avoid the dangerous and growing Smartphone behavior commonly known as "Cyberbullying."

Iconosys CEO and founder Wayne Irving II, a father of four, will shortly be unveiling an innovative app that allows parents to monitor the whereabouts of their children and can also weed out texts or phone calls from these Cyber-predators. Other Smartphone safety apps developed by Iconosys include the innovative SMS Replier, a product that curbs another potentially dangerous and growing social dilemma (banned in over 30 states), Texting-While-Driving. Mr. Irving’s safety tips are as follows:

1) Set family guidelines for Internet/phone use (have an organized meeting, if necessary)

2) Educate children about the risks, legalities and repercussions of online activities

3) Remind children that it is not ok to give personal information to anyone you don’t trust

4) Let them know that it is highly dangerous if they open or read messages from people they do not know; ignore them or show them to mom or dad

5) Emails and text messages promising ‘the sky’ should not be taken seriously and kids should know that they are a potential signal from someone who wants to put a virus on their PC or phone and make it break and never work again.

6) Let them know it is ok to ignore/block/delete anyone who makes you feel weird or uncomfortable

7) Regularly change your child’s email/username/cell phone number/account information/passwords (at least until they are of college age).

8) Let children know that it is ok to talk to you about contact from someone they may have thought they trusted and realize they now don’t. If not you, who in the family are they comfortable to discuss this with?

9) Install a product on your child’s phone (app coming soon from Iconosys) so you can more closely monitor your child’s safety

Iconosys' flagship product, SMS Replier™, is a revolutionary mobile phone application designed to couple many convenience services with addressing the growing problem of communicating safely while driving a car, truck, or motorcycle.

Iconosys' CEO Wayne Irving II, a pioneer in next-generation telecom concepts, has led the drive to take advantage of GPS and other onboard motion technologies to build lifesaving and life-enhancing products, and to create new and better tools for wireless platforms and operating systems.

Iconosys proprietary technology, developed with support from Motorola, is a complex series of algorithms and readings from the technology running on today’s Smartphones; this includes, without limitation, GPS and other motion sensoring, coordinated with Google mapping to provide an accurate and responsive background service to most, if not all, of the upcoming Iconosys technology releases.

Each mobile app from Iconosys including SMS Replier are enhanced with Iconosys' DriveReply™ technology which our testing shows is up to 90% more efficient in battery consumption, a key differentiator from other producers of GPS dependent Smartphone applications.
