Privacy & Data Security

What measures are in place to protect my location data?

Dealing with sensitive information means going above and beyond to keep it secure. Here are a few of the features that make your Jiobit, the Jiobit Guardian application, and associated services one of the most secure consumer electronics platforms in the world.

  • We encrypt your child’s data end-to-end using Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Cipher Suites. That means no one can see your child’s location but you and your designated Care Team. Additionally, your data is encrypted in our data center and on our servers.
  • Jiobit uses a security chip to enable trusted connections and prevent hacking. This means each device has a unique identity/key that cannot be cloned.
  • Proprietary Bluetooth encryption ensures no one can intercept the communications from a Jiobit and spoof your smartphone.
  • Cryptographically signed software ensures that only software approved by Jiobit will run on the Jiobit device.
  • We understand nothing is fool-proof which is why we’ve enlisted the help of a third-party penetration testing company to keep us in check. They identify areas at risk for compromise so that we can resolve any issues immediately. Security is a top priority for us at all times.

What is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)?

Jiobit is compliant with COPPA, protecting the personal information of children under 13, and is certified through the kidSafe+ certification program. Effective April 21, 2000, COPPA is an act that applies to the online collection of personal information of children under 13 years of age, by persons or entities under U.S. jurisdiction. It details what a website operator must include in a privacy policy, when and how to seek verifiable consent from a parent or guardian, and what responsibilities an operator has to protect children's privacy and safety online (including restrictions on marketing to those under 13.)

What is KidSAFE?

The kidSAFE Seal Program is an independent safety certification service and seal-of-approval program designed exclusively for children-friendly websites and technologies, including online game sites, educational services, virtual worlds, social networks, mobile apps, tablet devices, connected toys, and other similar online and interactive services.
