Today’s children start using technology very quickly. Furthermore, we can say that when using the Internet and smartphones – our kids are faster and better than most of us. That is good, but at the same time, it can be very problematic because various dangers are lurking on the Internet. The solution is to monitor what your children are doing when being on the phone, but is it possible to do this without the children knowing about it? The answer is YES!
Are You Monitoring Your Child’s Phone?
Today, almost every kid uses a smartphone. That moment when the child will get his first phone moves from year to year – so today, we have even 5-year-olds who are using smartphones. That information sounds weird to many. Still, parents often buy their children their first smartphone so they can call if they are late for the bus or accidentally find themselves in trouble. Of course, children are curious and are very knowledgeable about all the ways today’s smartphones can be used. As a result, very quickly, children start using their phones for entertainment and communication with other children – but also, for some not-so-good things. That’s why parents need to have insight into what their children are doing when using smartphones.
Is Excessive Parental Concern Justified?
Parents’ concern and the need to know where their children are at all times have been recognized by experts around the world. Fortunately, many mobile apps have been designed so we can track our children, knowing where they are or what they do. At first, this need started among parents who have children in elementary school – so due to concern for the kids, smartwatches were mandatory on the wrist of every little one. However, it seems that some parents liked that trend, or it became a habit – so they continued using the same principle for older children. However, today’s kids use smartphones more than smartwatches, and luckily for parents, monitoring tools are available in the form of apps that allow them to track their children’s phones. How justified that is or not – we could discuss it. Of course, there is a line between concern and unnecessary invasion of children’s privacy. However, we live in a time when our children are on the Internet where various dangers are lurking – so we will agree with the opinion that the violation of privacy is at least less harmful. Here are some simple ways that many parents do it.
Spy Phone App
This is probably one of the simplest and most effective ways to track your children’s phones without them having any idea about it. According to www.spyphone.com, software such as the spy phone app, offer you a panel where you can view everything you are interested in. Location, text messages, contacts – whatever you need, you’ll find it. You will be able to see who your children are talking to when they think you don’t know, and you can also use the panic button, which provides you with additional protection. Your child’s location data is updated every half an hour – so you have a good insight into where your child is moving and in what time frame. Do you have more children using their phones? It’s not a problem because this app allows you to control up to 5 phones at the same time. Maybe the spouse will also find himself ‘under surveillance’? You never know!
Locate Your Child By Phone Number
This is another simple way to track your child without them having any idea about it. Simply log in to one of the specialized websites that offer such software services. In a very short time, with the help of geolocation, you will receive information about your child’s movements via email. Of course, you can also get a list of contacts or other desired data upon request and at an appropriate price.
Does Your Child Have An iPhone? Use iCloud!
If your child has an iPhone, things can be a bit more complicated. Children are smart, so they know some tricks to try to avoid your curiosity. One of the basic ones is to turn off the phone. However, don’t be discouraged! If your child uses an iPhone, try accessing their iCloud. Of course, you have to know the login information, but we hope you at least managed to find that out. In that case, iCloud will provide you with an insight into the location, remote deletion of data, sound on the device, etc.
Try Android Device Manager
A very similar option as the previous one – with the exception that it applies to Android phones. You can access it very easily, through a google account connected to the desired device. This tool works on the principle of GPS tracking – and allows you to find out the location, do the remote locking, data reset, etc.
You Can Follow Anyone Very Easily
Experts claim that you can track any device. You can track a person through a phone because various apps can be installed – and you can monitor almost anyone without them knowing. It doesn’t have to be a phone or a smartwatch. You can place the tracking device anywhere. They are small GPS locators that have a power supply – and can work for months. Some of them are the size of the tip of a fingernail. They can be put anywhere, in clothes, a backpack, a pen, etc. However, we mostly use smartphones for this purpose. Why? Because they are technically the most suitable – but also because a person carries them everywhere. Mobile phones are generally used for spying. You install a certain application and it sends a 3D location at any moment – and you can follow a person systemically, just like the police and mobile operators do. You can even eavesdrop on a person through those devices. However, we should not go to extremes – and we can still determine where our children are and what they are doing when using their smartphones.
