Monitoring Cell Phone Activity
If you’re a parent then it’s likely you will have considered monitoring cell phone conversations and activity of your kids. There are a number of apps widely available to do just that, such as Highster Mobile. This can be done remotely and without the user even being aware their cell phone is being monitored, in some cases the ability to monitor cell phone activity without installing software.
Development of Cell Phone Use
As cell phone ownership has increased – 78% of teenagers in the USA have access to a smartphone – so have the different ways in which they can be used. For many, it is unthinkable that a cell phone was used just to make calls. Thereafter, developing into making calls and sending short messages (SMS) and so on up to the present. Who knows what the future will bring!
With this increased usage and seemingly endless possibility of uses, it’s hardly surprising that not all users and uses are what they should be. The potential for illegal and immoral activity is as endless as the potential for legal and moral activity. Therefore, It’s important for parents to be mindful of what their kids are doing with their cell phones. Using apps such as those mentioned above can help put parents’ minds at ease.
Functions of Monitoring Apps
Phone monitoring apps can be used to do a variety of different things, such as tracking internet and web history, GPS location, monitoring texts, calls and social media activities, set limits on usage and even block access to certain sites. By monitoring and controlling aspects of your child’s cell phone activity, you can help protect them against unwanted attention from both people they know and people they don’t.
Whilst it’s true that the available apps are just one tool to protect your kids online, they are a very useful and effective tool to have.
