The day chosen to unveil the Safe Internet app could not have been more appropriate: February 10th, 2015 – Safer Internet Day. Online security has never been more important and the Safe Internet app that BloomIdea developed for the Foundation for Science and Technology, responds to all the doubts and uncertainties that come with online browsing.
Through its Safer Internet Centre, the Foundation for Science and Technology aims to contribute proactively to combating malicious or illegal online conduct and content, minimizing the potential risks that may arise from the use of information and communication technologies. BloomIdea gave life to its core mission – to promote safe Internet use, along with society awareness of the risks associated with its use – with the creation of the Safe Internet app with the creation of the Safe Internet app, which is available for free download on iOS and Android.
This application brings together and alerts to an extensive list of risks that come with information and communication technologies, without forgetting preventive measures. In addition to presenting each risk and what can go wrong, it also includes tips on how to make the Internet a safer place:
- Malware and spyware
- Identity theft
- Smartphones and tablets
- Wifi, Bluetooth and NFCS
- SMS, MMS and IM
- Video Games
- Online gambling
- Forums and social networks
- Peer to peer
- Chat Rooms
In addition to its highly informational aspect and continuous utility, the app also has a fun side, with an interactive game for those under and over 12 years of age, as well as for teachers, educators and animators – because there is no age limit when it comes to being and feeling safe online.

Sometimes, a visionary and a great idea just need an extraordinary team to conquer success! This is what João Lima, student at the Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, found out when he brought to BloomIdea his innovative idea of a game meant to train the mind of players and to challenge puzzle lovers.
