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.

A Potentially Dangerous Data Base

Reviewed By Kevin Douglas on December 8, 2013

A data base of this nature plays upon the fears of the worst possible scenarios that likely will never happen.
If you have a site like this, then why not have one for drivers listing DUI offenders who repeatedly drive with multiple convictions unlicensed? How about a data base of pitbull owners whose doga have mutilated others, and are still allowed to keep their dogs? How about a list of animal abusers who prey upon neighborhood pets?
All this site does is create aworld of hell for people who end up on this list for an infraction that legally labels them as offenders, despite the fact that their offense is not predatory, nor likely to repeat itself?

THESE SITES ARE CREATING FALSE HYSTERIA AND DO NOT HELP PARENTS BUT INCREASE THEIR PARANOIA.

I PITY THE KIDS WHO LIVE WITH PARENTS WHO OBSESS OVER THESE MATTERS. DANGER EXISTS IN MANY OTHER FORMS -POSSIBLY WORSE - HOW WILL TYOU PROTECT THEM FROM THOSE PERILS? STAND BY THEM 24/7 ???

I am mentally disabled and have major depression disorders and keep that in check so that I can keep my physical health in check.

Dishonest

Reviewed By Jim on October 24, 2013, St. Paul, MN

A scam to collect names, addresses and credit card numbers, not to mention a fee for free information. Exploiting fear for financial gain is one of the lowest human behaviors. STAY AWAY!

Questionable practices - not worth the money

Reviewed By Barbara Bane on October 15, 2013, New York

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.)

Any site that won't just sign you up and keeps jerking you around is up to something. Period.

February 06, 2014

Dear Barbara Bane,

First we apologize for the negative experience that you had with our company. We are not trying to exploit fear, rather trying to accurately convey how serious this issue is and provide families with tools and information that can help keep them protected. We offer a monthly service for $29.97/mo, but also have an annual package for $59.98 so you certainly don’t have to spend $360 a year to stay protected (however we would argue that this is well worth it if it helped protect children and families). We would not know if a member wanted to cancel their protection unless we heard from them. Our helpful member support representatives are answering the phones 7 days a week from 5 am to 8 pm pacific time and we have an extremely high answer rate; we also accept cancellations through email. For member convenience, if you do not reach a representative when you call, or contact us after hours, you can cancel your membership within the ivr system to avoid future billing. Contrary to what you said, we make it VERY easy to “unsubscribe” to our memberships and even offer discounted memberships for members who want to continue with the protection for a reduced price. Our product and our member support does cost us money to provide so that is why we were unable to give you a full refund. Again, we apologize that your experience wasn’t satisfactory to you, and we would be happy to offer you some free service if you are interested. Please contact us at 1-800-301-5905 if you are interested.

Yes, they offer nothing of value EXCEPT recurring credit card charges.

February 06, 2014

Dear Sue, there are some free websites that provide some of the information that Kids Live Safe offers and we applaud their efforts. We wanted to take a minute to highlight some of the key differences with the services that we provide to our members.

Members can do unlimited nationwide searches for registered sex offenders by address, zip code, or by name.
One of the key features of our membership is our ability to create a 5 mile protection zone around our member’s home address. This allows us to monitor new sex offender activity and send immediate email alerts when a new sex offender registers within this monitoring area. Not only are our members able to monitor their own home, but can set up 3 additional monitoring areas for no additional charge.

Our members are also able to set up Emergence Response Profiles for each one of their children. These digital profiles contain a child’s picture, personal information, physical description, medical information as well as guardian contact information. These profiles can instantly be emailed to friends, family or the police in case a child goes missing or is abducted; this assists parents and law enforcement in the recovery of the child.
Since sexual predators are gaining access to our children via the internet our members are able to utilize our award winning internet filter. This internet filter allows parents to monitor their child’s online activities to ensure that they stay safe while surfing the web or chatting with friends.

We take the safety of our member’s families very seriously and if you have any questions feel free to email our helpful member support team at support@kidslivesafe.com or contact us directly at 1-800-301-5905.

Keeping my nieces and nephews safe!

Reviewed By Shawntaia Sallis on September 27, 2013, Omaha, NE

BRIAN was great but ALEX offered a better monthly fee of $2.97 a month since he as well as BRIAN had let me know that my areas I have being monitored are in red flag areas for sex offenders and pedophiles. One of the key features to my membership is the sites ability to create a 5 mile protection zone around my home address. This allows them to monitor new sex offender activity and send immediate email alerts when a new sex offender registers within my monitoring area or the areas I have additionally added, since you can add up to 3 more.

I am also able to set up Emergency Response Profiles for each one of nieces or nephews. These digital profiles contain their picture, personal information, physical description, medical information as well as guardian contact information. These profiles can instantly be emailed to friends, family or the police in case a child goes missing or is abducted;this assists parents and law enforcement in the recovery of the missing child.

As to not having this, I would have to notify the police, make a report, give them pictures, descriptions, medical info, guardian info and once the Amber Alert is in affect, hope that they return or are found but if not a National news release will have to be put in affect. Tough right, so this does make it a little bit more easier and comforting.

I got curious about the sort of people who might live

Reviewed By Fiona H on September 27, 2013, Georgia

Really glad I found this website, actually. One of my neighbors recently got arrested for I guess possession of child pornography. Our neighborhood was obviously really shocked and I’m a father of 2 little girls so I felt powerless. I got curious about the sort of people who might live around me and found this service after doing a little research. Really, I just wanted to do a search of my area but then I saw that there were 73 offenders around our home. A few days later I received a new alert about a sex offender who moved into an apartment building near one of my girl’s bus stop. I decided then that it was probably a good idea to move. I’m monitoring our new home now and thankfully the offenders around my new home are pretty far away. In the end, all we can do is use the tools available to help protect our kids.

I was shocked!!!

Reviewed By Leah W on September 23, 2013, Upland CA

My name is Leah. I received an email alert from this company Kids Live Safe telling me there were sexual offenders that lived in my area. I wasn’t sure if I should even look at the info or just delete the email. I was curious to see who lived in my neighborhood. I googled Kids live Safe , come to find out this company is based in Santa Barbara, CA and has an “A” rating with the BBB. I really trust the feedback I get from the BBB, so I decided to go forward. I read the terms of use and decided to call the 18003015905 support number. When my call was answered I spoke with a support rep, who explained to me the terms of use to create a membership, I told him I didn’t want to pay a monthly fee because it was too much. The rep told me about the monitoring areas I could set up and the benefits of using the “Net Nanny “. I hung up and looked up the Megans Law website for CA. After comparing the two sites, I see its worth it for the dollar to be a member of Kids Live Safe. The rep was right, the monitoring zones for specific addresses makes it easier to map their location and the content blocking software I can download for free was a big plus. I was shocked by the amount of offenders that live near us, but now I know where they live. I also feel good about trusting my son online with the use of Net Nanny on our PC, now I know what he’s up to. Leah W,
