Student Safety Monitoring: What Schools May Be Missing without Lightspeed Filter™

Lightspeed Filter™ is more than a content blocker; it’s a complete student safety monitoring platform that uses advanced AI to identify at-risk students and get schools the real-time information they need to intervene.

Safety Check has alerted schools to thousands of student safety concerns — many of them things that other solutions miss.

Here are 4 reasons to trust Lightspeed Safety Check with your student safety monitoring.

1. When it comes to student safety monitoring, we see everything.

Some solutions only scan Google Drive or Gmail; some only work on some operating systems. Safety Check works across Chrome, Mac, and Windows devices and analyses activity on every site and app.

Here are the top 15 sites that generated alerts this year:

  1. Google Docs
  2. Google Search
  3. Google Mail
  4. YouTube
  5. Google Translate
  6. Google Classroom
  7. Bing
  8. Quizlet
  9. Discord App
  10. Facebook
  11. PaperRater
  12. Pinterest
  13. Twitter
  14. PegWriting
  15. DuckDuckGo

If you’re only looking at Google Docs or Gmail, you’re missing a lot! Safety Check is able to analyse activity on every site, even encrypted sites and sites behind logins.

2. Our AI is tuned to alert on the right information.

Some solutions send thousands of false alerts every month. Because our AI is based on twenty years of experience with student activity and monitoring, we’re able to more accurately identify true risks. We know the difference between a suicidal student and a student working on a Romeo & Juliet project. Lightspeed Safety Check sent an average of 28 alerts per school last month, which means you know about critical issues without overburdening your staff with false alerts.

3. When it comes to safety, easy management and delegation is key.

Our AI works hard to identify safety risks, send alerts, and provide historical reports. But what then? With a lot of projects and small staffs, school IT teams can’t manage digital safety alone. That’s why Safety Check has critical features to make student safety a school-wide effort: Admin Roles makes it easy to alert different people (headteachers, IT admins, e-safety officers) based on school or year-group and Case Tracking makes it easy to see and manage who has followed up and when.

4. Student data privacy is essential.

When monitoring students and alerting on safety concerns, student data privacy is essential. That’s why we use robust AI technology (not humans) and send alerts only to personnel or users designated by the school (not third parties). We’re committed to helping schools protect student data privacy and security.
