About Kids Live Safe
As a parent it is nearly impossible to watch your children and be with them 24 hours a day. The best way to protect them is by taking the necessary measures to ensure their safety. One of the scariest issues parents face is and must confront is the number of sexual predators and sex offenders who are out there and who are not confined to any one location.
There are over 700,000 sex offenders in the U.S. Kids Live Safe is an online tool with information, advice and locations of registered sex offenders based on public records. If you want to take control of the situation this site has made the availability of information and general safety guidelines easy to access.
Becoming a member of Kids Live Safe is easy to do, begin by registering for the 7 day trial period for only $1.00. At that point you may choose either of the two membership options. One options is a monthly subscription, which costs $30.00, the other option is a year subscription which costs approximately $100.00. After the trial period has ended, your account will be charged automatically unless you cancel the service.
Kids Live Safe members have a number of resources at their fingertips. They have an unlimited number of search capabilities to locate Sex Offenders anywhere in the U.S. which includes profiles, pictures, addresses, and a description of their offense. Email alerts are also sent to you if a Registered Sex Offender moves into any of your designated monitored areas. You may also use their learning center, member support services plus a number of other resources and tools through this site.
One of the drawbacks of this system is that the information may not always be accurate. If a registered sex offender moves and does not submit their new address, there may still be an old address on file. Another drawback is the number of predators who have not been caught; this means there is not one bit of information on them in the database. Take advantage of any and all safety precautions you can and provide your children with the knowledge to protect themselves as well.

Keeping kids safe.
I like the alerts for my area, I will know who the offenders are near my children.
Questionable practices - not worth the money
Be aware when you go to the Kids Live Safe Site, in order to access your "free" trial, you are signing up for an eternal, automatically renewing $30 a month subscription. (First off: How on earth can this kind of service be worth $360 a year?)
Another slightly shady part of the operation - that you must make a phone call to cancel. And then no one is available to process your cancellation! That way, when you give up because you have a life
A month later, my credit card was charge without notice. When I immediately called the office, a snotty "supervisor" tried to shame me into staying with the service. After all, you signed up for it; the contract was clear, etc. At one point, he cut me off in mid-sentence because I called him out on the kind of non-specific language he was using. "We'll see what we can do to help you out with a refund." "Can you refund my money or not - since the new month's service hasn't actually started til TODAY." "Well, let me process the cancellation and then we'll see what we can do." Big red flag: if people don't give you a straight answer, they aren't dealing with you straight, either.
He pretended to "speak to another supervisor" (whom I was not allowed to speak to) - and offered me HALF of my money back. For nothing. I'd already wasted more than $15 worth of my time, so I said okay. (The only reason this is a two star instead of one star reveiw.)
The CS Rep kept repeating, "we are trying to keep the children safe, and that costs us money." Most annoying, and not to the point. Here is someone who can't use and doesn't want the service, and doesn't want to pay for a service they don't need. What is so hard about that? Really, it's worth $15 to them to create this kind of bad vibe? Something is fishy.
If a company is proud of their service, and want happy customers, they are happy to unsubscribe and refund any unused money, in order NOT to create a situation like this, where an unhappy customer who has been treated badly then takes to the net to write a bad review.
BE CAREFUL ABOUT DEALING WITH THIS COMPANY. If you try the free trial, be prepared for them to make it difficult to unsubscribe. (And as the CS Rep was so hostile, I am now concerned about the safety of my credit card info.)
Can get this info for free
