PROACTIVE PROTECTIONS WITHIN GAMES
A hierarchy of measures for player safety and well-being
We made this Hierarchy of Measures to promote protective strategies and measures within online games. The purpose of these tiers is to help prioritize, implement, and understand the effectiveness of measures that enable a player’s well-being and safety. The hierarchy looks at four tiers of strategies for player safety, including:
HOW GAMERSAFER WORKS
Step 1 – User securely links their Game Account with their GamerSafer Profile via the app.
Step 2 – When a player logs into the game their account is verified as existing within the GamerSafer Database.
Step 3 – The player will be prompted by the game to authenticate using the GamerSafer App, similar to 2FA.
Step 4 – Access and permissions are automatically granted based on your game's uniquely defined needs and the preferences of the player.
Our vision is to scale online safety, positive and fair play experiences to millions of players worldwide.
We build safety tools for the gaming and Esports industry to enable proactive intervention, promote a player-centric approach, and cultivate integrity and trust.
Address the source of severe transgressions before they happen, driving prevention at-scale and fostering more positive experiences and interactions.
Empower players to share their preferences to deliver compatible experiences, protect their gameplay, and cultivate accountability with transparency.
Design focused on addressing content, conduct, and contact risks, data minimization & transparency, and compliance with evolving regulatory standards.
