  1. Chat disabled
    • This disables all chat features. You child will not be able to receive or send any user created chat messages. Future versions of Altitude will support built-in safe messages.
  2. Filter swear words
    • Altitude will replace all swear words with asterisks(*). To view or add additional filtered words edit the text file under C:\Program Files\Altitude\config\filtered_swear_words.txt
  3. Verify user made content
    • Enabling this option will keep your child safe from user made maps.
  4. Changing any of these settings requires you to enter the account password
    • This ensures that your child cannot change the safety settings.
