Chicago -based Loyola Press, today announced that its first-ever online game, Wanderlight: ™ A Pilgrim's Adventure has been awarded the iKeepSafe COPPA badge, in recognition of their alignment with iKeepSafe's guidelines surrounding the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Wanderlight was commended for its commitment to responsible gaming and player protection through the development of a home and classroom online game that combines the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith with an adventurous quest-filled journey.

Wanderlight:™ A Pilgrim's Adventure, has been awarded the iKeepSafe COPPA badge, in recognition of their alignment with iKeepSafe's guidelines surrounding the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

With the pandemic pushing even more children online during the age of online use, it has become even more difficult for parents to monitor and safeguard their children's online activity, especially behind closed doors. The iKeepSafe FTC-approved COPPA certification program, is designed for child-friendly websites and technologies, including kid-targeted game sites, educational services, virtual worlds, social networks, mobile apps, and other similar interactive services and technologies.

"It was critical for us that Wanderlight receive the iKeepSafe COPPA certification. We believe in going that extra mile. It's more important than ever that children are kept safe online, and here at Loyola Press, we are committed to helping ensure this happens," said Joellyn Cicciarelli , President and Publisher of Loyola Press. "Getting the iKeepSafe COPPA certification this year is a testament to developing online experiences that prioritize the privacy and safety of our children through a transformative, faith-based learning platform – and later this summer, Wanderlight will include new archeology mini games that will make for an even more exciting experience."

Wanderlight will display the iKeepSafe COPPA badge to identify that the product has been proactively and independently assessed by an experienced, third party privacy assessor. Products that carry the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program badge provide educators and parents with assurance that the product is compliant with COPPA, a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Rule designed to ensure that parents remain in control of personal information collected from their children online.

"iKeepSafe congratulates Wanderlight on taking this essential step in protecting youths' personal information," said Amber Lindsay , president and CEO of iKeepSafe. "Each day, more school districts and parents are making privacy and safety a priority. It is important that they have a quick means of determining whether products are safe to use."

For over a decade, iKeepSafe has been a trusted resource for schools and parents looking for balanced information about safe and healthy use of connected technologies.

Wanderlight can be played on desktops, laptops, and tablets with an Internet connection. Download the game on Google Play or the App Store, or call Loyola Press Customer Service .
