    Re: Setting up parental control on my android phone?

    Nowadays the situation is such that a mobile phone is a necessity for every teenager. The amount of wanted and unwanted material on the internet is increasing day by day. This calls for the need of having a check on the sites and information that they are open to. A new app has been launched for android phones which provides age based filtering and real time monitoring. The name of the app is Mobicip. The app comes out to the market for $5. The app provides all most all the features of the regular features of a common web browser but with a provision to have parental control.

    Re: Setting up parental control on my android phone?

    Hello Friend,


    Unfortunately thre is no perfect app for parental control as most of the available parental control don't have features like "Filtering for web surfing"or "filtering for apps".


    However the apps which could provide you partial parental controls like restricting acces to some of the apps, monitor phone usage are:-


    1)Android Parental Control( restricts access to the selected apps)


    2) SMobile Parental Control(It remotely monitors your phone usage in background)


    3)App Lock( password protects any application you choose)


    4)Mobile Nanny(You can set alerts for the keywords that are getting used in texts,contacts and photos)


    5)Mobicip(Content filtering is the key feature)




    Hope It Helps!


    Thanks and visit again

Then clickon the LOCK pad icon or "Set or change PIN" option to set up a pin password to lock down the configured settings.

    Re: Setting up parental control on my android phone?

    I will suggest you to do following things on your device to setup parental control.

    1. Very First step of parental control is to stop installing apps from play store which are for high maturity.

    Go to PLAY STORE app and then click the MENU button on your device. Then click on the SETTINGS button.
    Go to Content Filtering and select the maturity level accoedinf to your preference.
    After that go to ”Set or change PIN” option to setup a PIN password to lock the settings you just configured.
    That’s it! Now the Play Store will only allow you to install the apps that have been deemed appropriate for the maturity level that you have set.

    2. Now install Norton Online Family from play store. This app comes with Parental Control Features like online activity reporting, web blocking, time limits, chat monitoring, private information sharing etc.

    3. Also install Phone Control from play store.This app allows you to monitor absolutely everything that happens on your phone: the app will forward you all outgoing and incoming SMS messages, photos taken, contacts, phone calls and locations of the device. Phone control operates absolutely invisibly to the user and your child cannot even see the icon on the phone.

    There are also several apps available which you can install.

    Re: Setting up parental control on my android phone?

    Hi friend, I really understand the importance of the parental control over the technologies available today. Its driving the kids and adults to learn everything available in this world irrespective of whether it is good or bad. You can very well block your kids to use certain applications in your mobile phone by either locking / hiding the app which is not needed for the kids to know. Some would say why to install the Apps which are harmful to kids. But there are really some important applications which is needed for a very good purpose. But not for kids use.
    I would suggest to lock it / hide it. Install applications like "Android Parental Control","Kaspersky Parental Control","Phone Control" to your mobile. This would definitely help you to get control on the phone over kids.

    Hello,

    I would you feel when someone gives you an antivirus protection as well as anti spam with parental control. You would be thinking that How it is possible. There is a software which provides you with this, And that is Kaspersky. In the cost of total security for mobile it provides you with the oriented parental control. So you should buy this as your parental control.

    Regards
    Navneet

    We, as most parents, feel that the most important thing you as a parent can do is to communicate with your child about things that they are doing and seeing on the internet. Fortunately, there is a way, internet parental control, to monitor what they are actually doing on the computer. Check our site for more details.
