Jacob Anderson became concerned about how to protect children from predators and strangers online. He began Kids Email in 2007 to offer parents a way to protect their children online.


Jacob Andersen's 9-year-old relative was a sweet and trusting child. And when the child began to communicate with a stranger online, the child's parents and Andersen realized how easy it was for predators and others to reach children on the Internet.


"Luckily, there was nothing sexual in the communication," Anderson said. "But the letters were too personal for my relative to feel comfortable with. And he was always careful with his computer. It was in the public place and he monitored his children's accounts."
