Learn why Lightspeed Alert™ better protects students than Gaggle

Lightspeed's violence prevention solution keeps students safe

To prevent student self-harm, suicide, bullying, and school violence, schools need to monitor students wherever they go online—no exceptions.

Lightspeed Alert—designed explicitly for K-12 and perfected through years of innovatively designed indexing and machine learning—is powered by the most comprehensive database in the industry.

Gaggle is Falling Short

Gaggle fails schools by failing to monitor students where they spend time online. For instance:

  • Gaggle fails to monitor social media
  • Gaggle fails to scan Google searches
  • Gaggle fails to scan activity in desktop applications

Lightspeed Protects Your Students—No Matter Where They Go Online

Our solution and the Lightspeed Safety Specialists, who work 24/7 analyzing each alert, give districts the comprehensive picture of online activity they need to keep students safe—and, when needed, swift interventions to prevent harm.

Don't take our word for it: here's what one district had to say about its decision to deploy Lightspeed Alert:

Before we had the support of Lightspeed safety specialists, I was doing all the alert review myself. I was losing sleep and working throughout the night. This has been a game-changer for me.
