What We Do

In 2016, IOU, Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by a loving father determined to make the digital world safer and more enjoyable not just for his own family, but for families everywhere.

The acronym IOU reflects the organization’s core principles and commitments. It stands for “Internet of Us,” a testament to our mission to foster trust, accountability, and inclusivity in our online experiences. This name signifies our pledge to enhance digital citizenship by making the internet a space where every user can navigate confidently, securely, and effortlessly.

But IOU has another, more personal meaning for the founder. It represents the phrase “I Owe You.” As a father, he felt a profound responsibility – a debt, if you will – to ensure the safety and well-being of his family in an increasingly interconnected digital world. This duty extended beyond his own household, as he felt compelled to provide the same level of protection and assurance to all families navigating the internet.

Utilizing an array of high-tech and low-tech solutions, IOU, Inc. tirelessly works to make the digital world less intimidating and more accessible. Through our efforts, they aim to transform our collective online experience into one marked by ease, confidence, and most importantly, safety.
