Some highly rated kid-safe chat websites and apps are Kimingo, Club Penguin and PlayKids Talk. All have a suggested age range of 6 to 7 years or older and offer parental controls.
Each kid-safe chatroom ensures safety in a different way. Kimingo is a closed network that kids may only sign up for through their schools to ensure safe chat practices and a lack of predators. PlayKids Talk is an iOS app that allows open sign-up, but parents have full control over children's contacts and profile and may monitor all conversations on the account. Club Penguin promotes a friendly and safe online gaming experience by having preset chat messages; the child types the beginning of a sentence then chooses one of more than 300,000 pre-approved phrase options to create her reply.
