Safety & Positivity

Zigazoo is kidSAFE COPPA Certified and Common Sense Media says Zigazoo is the “example of how to offer a social yet safe place for children to be online.”

We built Zigazoo so our kids could have a positive, safe way to learn with peers during the Covid-19 pandemic. As parents of young kids, we didn’t like our options for secure and positive online learning experiences — so we built Zigazoo. Our kids were the first users and are active on Zigazoo daily.

On Zigazoo, here’s how we are building a vibrant, positive-only, airtight secure environment:

1. Verified, Secure Sign-Up Process

In order to sign up to use Zigazoo, you must get verified through either your phone number or single sign-on with Google or Apple accounts. There is no random creation of accounts. In accordance with our terms and privacy policy, Zigazoo accounts must be created with a parent to ensure consent and safety.

2. User Controls and Human Moderation

Zigazoo puts every single piece of feed content through a stringent human moderation process that reviews for:

  • Relevance to the prompt
  • Kid-friendliness, including language and all aspects of visual media
  • Personally identifiable information

Only videos that pass our school-friendly test are viewable.

3. Controlled, Positive Interactions

Unlike TikTok, Facebook, and YouTube — users only see videos that make it through our stringent human moderation process and interact using positive-only emojis and stickers that promote healthy online relationships.

“The bottom line: Is Zigazoo safe for your kids? The contents and features of the app are appropriate for young kids.”
