My Secret Circle b.f.f. pack review and giveaway!













Hi Neighbors!

Glad to see you out At the Fence today.  Here is our second Fall Festival Post.  Remember I will not be doing posts on Sunday.  This product created by Scenario is called My Secret Circle and fits very well into our Fall Festival as an activity to do inside when it is cooling off outside.  My Secret Circle is a portable electronic journal that offers an online secure social networking world for girls.  This portable electronic journal, plugs in to a USB port.  Through this, they can write in their journal, create photo pages and scrapbook in a digital world where everything can either be kept private or shared with their selected friends.  The security for your child's safety is actually well set up.  Only a live person that they share a special code with, and who has a My Secret Friends Access Key themselves may join their circle of friends.  The portable electronic journal comes on a key-chain type attachment so they can carry it with them whenever they want to. 



I personally did not try mine as it was for giveaway, but I have the added benefit of a daughter who has one.  The only person she is connected with is her sister.  When they use My Secret Circle they are able to play games, Im each other, share photos, etc.  They really think it is neat because it is their Secret Circle. Obviously parental supervision is the best supervision for any use of the internet.  Make sure you know your children's friends.


Here is how My Secret Circle maintains your child's safety:

"1. Utilizing proprietary technology, the My Secret Circle Access Key™ contains an embedded code that is recognized by My Secret Circle’s™ private browser when connected to your computer. Because this unique code is located in a hardware solution; no personal information, registration or login is ever needed—and no one from the outside world can seek your child out. Also while entered into the My Secret Circle world— the internet navigation bar is completely stripped away—meaning your child can never navigate outside of the circle to other websites.
2. My Secret Circle™ users must invite and exchange unique charms codes with real-life friends. My Secret Circle Friend Code™ Generator generates a unique 12 digit number. This number (Friend Code) must be exchanged through our invitation system.
The invitation system allows your child to print out her Friend Code and create an envelope to trade her Friend Code in person with a real friend of her choice. In order to become “friends,” each girl must own a My Secret Circle Access Key™ and each girl must exchange a Friend Code. Once your child has exchanged a 12 digit number (Friend Code) with her friend, she must upload it into the “Friend Section” of the My Secret Circle. After inputting this code you will see that your real-life friend has been accepted to access your secret circle.
The 12 digit number (Friend Code) is only good for one time use for one friend. It can never be reused by other non-approved friends. Anytime your child would like to add another “friend” to her circle, she must generate a new Friend Code, and her friend must own the access key.

Unlike other social network or gaming site, you—as a parent—can know who your child is communicating with at all times."

My Secret Circle is basically it's own little  world, where strangers can not approach your child, there are no advertisements to click on and they can not explore the internet while using my Secret Circle because the navigation bar is taken away.  They can only access the options available on My Secret Circle.



There are also some accessories you can purchase extra Access Keys, a My Secret Circle Voice-Chat Headset, and My Secret Circle Snap Caps.  Ny Secret Circle is available through etailers Amazon and Target. My Secret Circle is also available in Target Stores.

My favorite feature is the security of using a code that you can only use one time, for one person. So that I know who my child is communicating with.
