Wangle Technologies Ltd (ASX:WGL) has crossed a major milestone by releasing the Android version of its family protection software suite, Wangle Family Insites (WFI), on the Google Play store today.

The family protection suite utilises behavioural analysis of live mobile network traffic to help parents identify and manage online risks to their children.

Wangle’s shares were last trading 12% higher intra-day, at $0.019.

New features to go live soon

Wangle has now completed additional enhancements to the online parent portal for release in the coming days.

The enhancements will include back-end optimisation and more granular charting of internet and app usage statistics, which will be made visible to WFI customers.

Wangle is also finalising the development of the GPS Gating feature, which allows parents to set an alert that activates when a child’s device moves outside of a 20-metre radius from the chosen location.

It is anticipated that this feature will be released to customers by the end of November after final testing is completed.

Additionally, a desktop version of WFI is being developed for inclusion within the software suite, as requested from customer feedback during beta testing.

WFI Desktop development is now well underway with a December launch date anticipated.

Targeting Australia’s 6 million families

WFI is now available via the Apple and Android App stores on a monthly or annual family subscription and will initially target Australia’s 6 million families before a planned international expansion.

The WFI product suite is able to analyse children’s internet access in real time and also send parents notifications in real time to help manage cyber threats.

Cyber threats include gaming addiction, cyberbullying, pornography and online predators.

Customers will pay a $7.99 per month subscription fee, which will cover up to 20 mobile devices within a family.

Furthermore, users will be able to trial the product for 30 days free and receive a discount by purchasing an annual subscription for $79.99.

Following the release of the Android version, Wangle’s marketing activity will now start to shift from brand-building, education and lead generation, to more aggressive user acquisition.
