|Imagine an Internet free of sexual predators where your children can
explore, learn and communicate online without the fear
of being attacked.
At Predator Free, we are working toward this goal
by making it difficult for predators to freely roam
We provide a registry of
violent and sexual offender Internet addresses, so
your Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can warn you of
potentially dangerous situations.
What is an Internet address?
Every time you connect to the
Internet, whether you are checking your email or
opening a web site, your computer sends your
Internet address to a server asking for
information. You can tell a lot about a person
from their Internet address like where they are
from, who provides their Internet connection and now,
thanks to the Predator Free rating system, whether
they have committed a violent or sexual crime.
How does the rating system work?
Just like a traffic light,
there are three colors:
Green means caution.
The Internet address is not in the violent and sexual
offender registry. A person with a green
rating could still be a predator, but it is less
likely. Yellow means warning. It is
uncertain whether the Internet address is in the
registry or not. This could be a public
Internet address like a Wi-Fi connection at a coffee
shop, library or hotel; or an address that has not
been specified to Predator Free by the ISP as either
being in the registry or not. Red means
danger. The Internet address has been reported
to Predator Free as belonging to someone that has
been convicted of a violent or sexual crime. A
person with a red rating might not be a predator,
but it is more likely.

How can I help?
1- Contact your local
attorney general. Ask them to work with your
ISP by encouraging them match up their clients with
the local sexual and violent offender registry and
provide the Internet addresses to Predator Free.
2- Become aware of the
dangers of the Internet. Read Online
Teen Dangers and similar Internet safety
