The internet is a source of endless information, a great place for kids to expand their knowledge. However, it's not perfect—there are plenty of places children aren't ready to explore. Torch aims to take the stress out of the internet for parents but integrating their values into their families' digital habits, so they don't have to worry about where kids' curiosity will take them.
This mission has earned Torch and its router plenty of fans, including numerous media outlets.
"[The] easy-to-use interface lets you see what sites every device on your network is visiting, how much data they're using, and how much time they're spending online. You can set limits on each device's usage, suspend their ability to connect to the Internet (without affecting the other devices on your network), and block specific sites on a per-device basis, so you can enjoy unfettered access without worrying about your kids or guests finding their way onto unsavory sites." – Uncrate
"Much like your corporate IT manager can block certain web sites, you too can block certain sites and control what devices can get on your network and when. So if you want little Aiden's iPad to drop off the network at 8 pm, you can have the Torch kick it off, leaving you free to focus on getting him to brush his teeth, and not fighting over five more minutes of YouTube." – Fortune
"Enter Torch, the brain-child of a mom and psychologist who saw the real need to get a handle on her own kids’ Internet habits. Sound familiar? The Torch WiFi router gives you a holistic view of your child’s online behavior. Using an iOS app or Web interface, you can log into the router and check your kids’ profiles to see exactly what sites they are perusing, how long they’re using the Internet and sites they’ve visited in the past." – Cool Mom Tech
