Parental monitoring on phones have evolved a lot over the years to give children more freedom to do what they want, while keeping an eye on their usage and activity. ‘Kids’ mode is no longer an effective method of parental control, and kids could get around that easily! New parental control methods are now in use to allow you further control on all levels. You can view the apps, websites and games your kids use, find their location, set time limits, or lock the device if need be.
Have you ever talked to your kids about responsible online behavior, but it did not work?
This is because it is tough to manage what kids do when you are not there. Let’s admit it. When in the middle of a game, it is really hard for kids to keep track of time in the middle of all the fun! Parental controls can support you in your efforts to keep your kids’ safe, while maintaining a fun and productive online experience.
Figuring out what type of parental control is best is basically based on your family’s needs. Some may get by with simple browsing and content filters. Others may require tools to help clamp down on screen time or to perform location checks… Wherever you are in your search, Safe Surf answers your parental control needs.
A simple advice! Let your kid know that you are using parental controls.
If you decide to use parental controls, talk to your kids and let them know you’re using them to help keep them safe. Encourage them to learn how to interact online responsibly and regulate their own usage independently. This open dialogue helps you reach your ultimate goal more directly.
Some parental controls can be installed without your kids knowing, but this is not recommended because at some point you will need to discuss your findings with them. So, it is better for them to know that you are monitoring them.
