Kickstarter campaign launches revolutionary mobile phone to protect users from online danger

Peanuts Mobile is a new attractive mobile phone which is strategically designed with a minimalist approach that will help users to conduct all important functions on mobile phones but without the threat of being exposed to cyber danger or over consumption of the internet.

The web world is bustling with myriad stuff but not all are healthy in the virtual zone, especially for kids. Overconsumption of the internet in recent times due to lockdown norms and work-from-home culture is making things even worse for both children and adults. But, a dynamic mom of 5, Renee, finally seems to have a feasible solution to the problem. The California-based mother has launched a revolutionary mobile phone on Kickstarter which is especially designed to protect children from online danger. Titled “Peanuts Mobile”, the new mobile phone will not only guard kids from cyber threats but help adults too to keep their internet consumption in check.

The campaign is geared to raise around $150,000 by the middle quarter of January 2020.

The USP of Peanuts Mobile lies in its “simplicity” or “minimalism”. The mobile phone is packed with all the key essentials one needs in a mobile phone to stay connected with the world- but without falling prey to unnecessary distractions and dangers of the web world.

“Around 47% of young people have received nasty or intimidating messages online. About 42% children (between 6 to 17 years) had exposure to pornography, and that too hardcore, while surfing online. Yes, the numbers are alarming and the online world is fast becoming a growing concern for almost every parent out there. You might mention parental controls and filters here but most of these are so basic that 85% of kids have admitted to bypass them with little effort”, noted Renee.

“In fact, adults too are not immune to the unhealthy habit of over-consumption of the internet. The problem has reached at a staggering height today especially in the current pandemic era when most of us are forced to stay indoors. On the flip side, we can’t even shut off the mobile phone for hours as it helps us to stay connected and that’s important. I left no stone unturned to find a feasible solution to the issue in the market but there was none. The crisis inspired me to come up with my own version of mobile phone that will prevent over-consumption of the internet but will also allow us to stay connected yet without costing an arm or leg. And yes, it should also look charming. Thus, Peanuts Mobile was born.”

The new mobile doesn’t need users to sign up with any particular network- the phone works with all major connections like, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon.
