April 24, 2008, Oslo, Norway -- WiHood announces the world’s first “virtual laptop” that protects children online anywhere –anytime with WiHood’s USB bracelet.

WiHood’s “virtual laptop” on a USB bracelet is portable and can be worn on the wrist, carried in a pocket or in a school bag. WiHood’s USB bracelet is made of non-toxic silicon so it is safe and durable for children. WiHood’s bracelet protects children online when the parents are not at home, or when the children are surfing at a friend’s home, or at school, or on vacation.

WiHood’s bracelets are inserted into any internet connected PC launching the WiHood virtual laptop service that provides each child with their own personal virtual desktop. WiHood’s web filtering service is integrated into the WiHood desktop that provides games and office applications, all while protecting children online.

“WiHood is a portable child friendly service that parents have always wanted for their children”, says Thomas F. Anglero, Founder and CEO of WiHood. “WiHood protects children, saves parents from purchasing a new PC, and kids love that they have their own “virtual laptop” which stores their pictures, music, homework, etc. and can be worn on their wrist!”
