If you have been a father a few years ago, surely you have noticed that the children of your children’s school (or even your son) already demand a mobile before they turn 10 years old. It is not unusual either to see how they acquire a tablet in their first communion, nor is it even unusual to see a baby who can barely walk entertain themselves with a tablet. Violence, sexual content, scams … there are a large number of web pages that your children can stop inadvertently and that should be avoided. Therefore, these applications that we list below will give you a hand.
Karspersky Safe Kids
To what extent should we control our children through mobile phones? Although there may be an eternal debate around this issue, parents who decide to have their children more closely watched over the phone may find this app useful. With it you will not only be able to restrict content to which the little ones have access on their phones, but you will also be able to locate it geographically, define a safe period for them or even lock your device some days of the week.
Norton Family Parental Control
This app will allow you to control the content that your children access from their mobile or tablet, restrict it and also know how much time they spend in front of the screen. You can monitor their searches, set alerts, control videos and applications, and in extreme cases, lock the device.
Not all parents decide to give their children the whim of having a mobile when they are very young. Something very common to postpone the moment of having to buy a smartphone is lend them yours when they are at home. To protect them from inappropriate content that they can access from your phone, you can use the Kids Place app. With it, you can create a different home screen so that the applications that only you authorize are within reach. This will also prevent them from accessing your own personal content.
Screens also have their positive side for children. They can be wonderful learning tools and we shouldn’t watch as an enemy to little ones. Putting excessive vigilance on what our children do online can also be detrimental to their privacy and personal privacy. The key, therefore, will be to educate them to make responsible use of new technologies.
Google Family Link
Google Family Link is the Mountain View company’s own parental control system for Android devices and Google accounts. It is a comprehensive system that affects the entire operating system and is configured remotely, from the device of the father, mother or guardian. We can monitor which apps are used and to what extent, restrict the use of the device and, of course, always know the precise location of the terminal.
