eKAVACH™, India’s most advanced digital parenting application has brought on board celebrated Indian boxer MC Mary Kom as a partner in its internet safety campaign. The five-time World Amateur Boxing champion and the first Indian woman boxer to win a Gold Medal in the Asian Games in 2014 has joined hands with the company to further its endeavour to provide a safe and friendly digital environment to children. Mary Kom will help the brand spread awareness amongst parents regarding the importance of supervising their children’s online activities and protecting them from online risks such as internet addiction, gaming addiction, cyber bullying and inappropriate web content.

With the advent of the advanced parental control features of eKAVACH ™, I am certain that parents like me across the country will heave a sigh of relief.”

She further added, “After I got a thorough understanding of the comprehensive internet safety the app offers to families, I was keen to join hands with the team immediately. Besides just allowing parents to exercise judicious control, the digital parenting app offers insights into the online behaviour of their children which in turn helps them to make better and more informed choices. If my association with eKAVACH™ can help in creating awareness among parents around the safe and healthy usage of technology in their child’s upbringing, it will be a matter of great joy and pride to me.”
