Welcome Parents!

Help your child start their digital citizenship in the safest way possible.

We've worked hard to create a safe social media experience that lets kids chat, connect with friends, play games, and express themselves. Be confident in your choice to allow your child to use Grom Social as a safe social networking site by checking out our Safety Page, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy.

Safety

24/7 Live Monitoring

At Grom Social, we have a cast of real live people who monitor the site 24/7 for inappropriate content and troublesome users. They are also available to answer questions or address any concerns that your child might have while on site. Your child can chat with a real live Grom Helper anytime they are logged into their profile.

Grom Helpers also encourage internet safety, no-bullying and healthy lifestyle choices.

There are many ways for members to communicate with each other on Grom Social. In all instances where members interact with each other, their activities are monitored by Grom Helpers, and available for parent review with the Parent Portal. Visit our Safety Page to learn more about Grom Social safety features.

Parent Portal

Grom Social has a Parent Portal that gives parents control over their child's account and the ability to monitor their activity. Would you rather be emailed? No problem, you can set up email notifications specific to your child’s activities on Grom Social.


  • Monitor Activity

    Inside your Parent Portal, you can set privacy settings and see everything your child is doing on Grom Social.

  • Email Notifications

    Set an email notification to receive notice of any specific activity your child is doing on Grom Social.

  • Manage Friends

    Parents can review and control who their child is friends with by removing or blocking friends on their child’s account.

  • Suspend Account

    We understand that spending time online can be viewed as a privilege. Should the need arise, you have the option of suspending your child’s account.

Grom Features

At Grom Social, we believe that every kid deserves to be as great as they want to be.

Once you approve your child's account, they will have access to all of the Grom features.
