Parents and guardians can ensure children stay safe when using a monitoring tool
. By using unprotected mobile phones, children have unfettered access to the internet. We can also teach you to cap how much your child spends on their mobile phone or smartphone using a monitoring software.
With all of the monitoring products
that are available to help parents control children's media consumption, deciding what to use can be confusing.
The following is a brief overview of the different types of parental control monitoring devices available:
Few parents seem to realize that many of today's mobile phones can basically work as a mobile monitoring software.
As of January 1, 2000, all television sets with 13 inches picture screens have to be equipped with features to block the display of television programming based upon its rating.
Blocking technologies allow parents to lock children out of viewing TV content in several different ways. Blocks can allow parents to lock certain channels and prohibit shows of specified ratings from playing.
Filtering technology filters out offensive content from TV, allowing kids to watch an edited version of a movie.
How do you supervise and protect your kids with a 'monitoring tool' especially when a cell has access to the internet?
The first thing you should do is learn how to turn on and use whatever parental controls are included with the cell phone. This might include parental control mobile software
that is actually part of the cell phone.
for example, offers a Smart Limits for Wireless Parental Controls feature that allows you to:
- restrict when a phone can be used,
- block or allow certain numbers that your child can
- restrict inappropriate content, etc.
- block a spy software if it was previously installed on your kids phone
(Verizon Usage Controls
and Content Filters
and Web Guard
), and other cell phone carriers offer similar services.
Many cell phone carriers also have services to let you locate your child at any time if they have a supported phone(this service is called: gms monitoring
For example: the Verizon Family
Locator service (formerly called Chaperone) will let you view your child's location and can even send you a text message when they arrive or leave a certain location, such as school or a friend's house. AT&T (AT&T Family Map) and Sprint (Sprint Family Locator) offer similar services.
