OUR STORY

GamerSafer was founded by a former executive from the gaming industry, and a social impact entrepreneur. We combine over thirty years of experience in business leadership, product development, and impact innovation. As gamers ourselves, we are also passionate about building more welcoming and safer online communities.


The number of players, social interactions, and time spent online keeps rising, and we saw an urgent need to create scalable and prevention-driven technology to protect players and platforms. Our mission is to help multiplayer games, esports and online communities defeat crimes, fraud, and toxicity, especially the most severe harms. 

One of the core questions we always ask to keep designing better solutions is, “How can we act before the fact and stop harmful interactions from happening in the first place?” This is what drives our work and innovation. With that, we are helping to secure platforms like Discord, Minecraft and others and build spaces that encourage users to experiment with new things and connect with each other with more peace of mind. 


Success for us means to safeguard millions of users, players and members of all genders, identities, geographies, ethnicities, ages, and religions.
