Parent Safety Online FAQ
Q. What is the purpose of this?
A. We've been getting too many reports on citizens getting hacked. With our partnership with the new program, Safety Online, we can secure the active accounts and make sure strictly ONLY you're child can access their account.


Q. What happens after the safety check?
A. If hacking reports go down, we shouldn't have to perform another Safety Check. Bearville will also be faster with the lessen of inactive accounts!


Q. Is this safe?
A. It is 100% safe and works with our new Bearville.com BETA.

It obviously is. How else would they be able to get my email? I don't give it out. It had to be an admin from another forumotion BABV forum that went into the member files and found emails.

Please remember that BABV will NEVER ask for your password. Just ignore these emails as they are just sad attempts at getting in to your account. As long as you keep your password safe you will be just fine
