What is AnyOne?
AnyOne Kids (AO) is a platform that facilitates a social life for children between the ages of 6 and 13. We create an online playground for kids to make new friends, have fun & engaging conversations and play games that ultimately fosters social, emotional & cognitive development.
What is the purpose of this platform?
AO is a safe video and messaging platform for children between the ages of 6 and 13 to make new friends from around the world.
How does this work?
Parents need to confirm their identity by going through an ID verification process powered by Berbix. Additionally, a video verification of the parent and child will be required for final approval and access to the AnyOne video chat platform.
Your child gets randomly connected to kids from around the world assisted by our matching algorithm. The randomness can be controlled by specific filters available for parents such as age, language, location, etc.
How is it safe?
Children get access to our platform only after their parents submit their identity document for verification and get approved. This is to make sure we keep away individuals with malicious intent. Parents have their own log in page where they can view their child’s activity on the platform and set parental controls. Future updates will allow parents to get more insights on their child’s growth & development.
How does my child benefit?
Your child will be able to make new friends who are not just living down the block or in the same apartment building or go to the same school. AO Kids allows your child to make new friends from around the world regardless of geographical constraints. Getting exposed to different cultures, races and kids with a different first language will help your child become a truly global citizen.
What about the privacy of my child’s data?
Who is behind this project?
People who care about kids and want to build a world for them to feel at peace so they can add more beauty to this beautiful world.
When was this built?
The idea was conceived during the pandemic when the entire world went into quarantine and all the children on the planet had to stay home.
During global shutdowns and lockdowns, kids were unable to emotionally and socially develop without having a school or playground to go to and interact with other children and adults.
Our team’s purpose is to build a platform that can allow children to safely connect with strangers just how they would by going to school, day care, camps and playgrounds.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any inquiries, concern or feedback.
AO is 💯 free to use! Your child can make new friends from around the world without making any payment.
