September 28, 2012 - Child Safety Network (CSN), the leading child safety organization in the United States since 1989, has selected Scrambls as the recipient of the 2012 National Child Safety Award. Scrambls is a free service that gives the user complete control to protect messages, tweets, and blogs posted to the web and social networking sites.
Ward E. Leber, CEO of the Child Safety Network says, "Social media sites contain a treasure trove of personal information that, in the wrong hands, can put children in jeopardy – whether through identity theft, cyber bullying, or even the act of luring youngsters into threatening situations. Scrambls gives families the control they need to make social networking safer, providing direct management of who kids communicate with, and all of the content that they share – working directly on the sites that they already use."

How Does it Work?
Scrambls is a secure web browser plug-in that, with the flip of a switch, can encode selected content. You choose who may access or read your information by selecting specific individuals or groups. Friends need to add Scrambls to their own browser so that messages will look the same to them as well. Anyone that is not approved to read the information will receive scrambled text including the providers of the social media sites. In the future, messages won't come back to haunt children and young adults. They can take responsibility to protect their reputation online now.

"The power of Scrambls is that it can protect children online on many different levels. Even beyond the realm of child safety, there are compelling reasons why you'd want to maintain control over your personal content. Your political positions or social conversations at age seventeen may not go over well when you run for president. The communications among your classmates for projects and trips don't need to be read by everyone on your Dad's friends list", says Steve Sprague, Co-creator of Scrambls, and CEO of Wave Systems Corp.
