Back in the day, the number one cause of parental anxiety was sabre-toothed tigers. Then it was the plague. For a couple of centuries after that the principal threat to child welfare was getting stuck in chimneys, and for a short period thereafter it was the dangerous influence of rock and roll.
And now, of course, the biggest concern by a million miles – worse than a thousand plague-ridden sabre-toothed tigers at an Alice Cooper concert inside a giant chimney – is the internet.
That’s why you need FamiSafe Parental Control. This indispensable app from developer WonderShare gives you complete oversight over your children’s online activity – and a healthy proportion their offline activity too.
Among the many powers it gives you is the ability to block apps at certain times, to ensure that your kids aren’t using them when they should be sleeping or studying.
You can also monitor app usage, to get an idea which apps your beloved offspring are using most, how much time they’re spending on them, which ones they install and uninstall the most frequently, and so on.
And this oversight isn’t confined to particular apps. You can also monitor screen time overall, and set limits where you think you need to. Plus, you can monitor your child’s web history for signs that they might have accidentally stumbled on something inappropriate.
Of course, you can reduce the odds of that happening with the powerful web filter, which allows you to automatically pre-block harmful content, or block specific websites manually.
Social media is the latest front in the war on bullying, and FamiSafe gives you eyes on that too. You’ll be able to log into your children’s accounts to make sure they’re not being bullied online. The app will also notify you about any suspicious photos that show up on your child’s device.
As well as giving you control over the virtual realm, FamiSafe lets you use the location features of your child’s phone to keep an eye on them while they’re out and about. You can set up a geofence and receive an alert if your child wanders out of bounds, and view their location history to check whether they’ve visited any suspicious places.
To get FamiSafe up and running, all you need to do is install it on your phone and your child’s. This enables you to make changes and monitor activity remotely.
