Client Spotlight: PlaytestCloud Partners with PRIVO for Identity Verification to Ensure Children's Privacy is Protected
PlaytestCloud provides real insight into the player behavior in games for developers and game studios. Its service has been used for 30% of the Top 100 grossing mobile games.
PlaytestCloud and PRIVO work together using PRIVO's identity verification widget to verify parents who add children to their accounts. This allows the child to test new apps for developers. PlaytestCloud is also certified COPPA compliant under PRIVO's COPPA Safe Harbor program.
Playtesting with gamers aged 3 to 15 years old is a fantastic way to get authentic responses and usable data for kids games. For years playtesting with kids was traditionally conducted inside a lab with lots of candy and not so reliable results. They were extremely difficult to arrange, kids could be influenced very easily, and the unnatural and sometimes uncomfortable environment could easily produce skewed results.
But those were the old days. It’s 2020 and PlaytestCloud makes this process much easier by allowing playtests with kids in familiar environments — such as the family home alongside a parent or guardian. They ask parents to allow their kids to play unobstructed and voice their opinions aloud.
Game studios have seen benefits such as improved FTUE, better player retention, polished and enhanced game mechanics and lowered churn and drop-out rates.
