Tech tools to help keep your child safe

As a parent, it’s important to know there are tools available to help you keep your kids as safe as possible.

Today’s technology makes the world so big, and this can be scary for parents. Keeping track of your child’s movements has become that much harder with the different social media platforms readily available and the internet so easily accessible.


SAFEKIDDO PARENTAL CONTROL: This easy-to-use parental control app lets you monitor what your children see while surfing the mobile internet. If you’re concerned about the amount of time your kids spend gaming and surfing, it also allows you to limit the time they spend online without suspending voice calls and messaging.

FIND MY KIDS – KID TRACKER: If you rely on a lift club to fetch the kids from school, you can now automatically receive location alerts when your child returns home or arrives at school.The app also monitors their battery levels, so
you’ll know whether they’re not responding to you, or whether their battery has simply died.

MMGUARDIAN PARENT APP: In addition to being able to restrict adult or inappropriate content, this app allows parents to block incoming calls and texts. You can also remotely locate and lock your child’s phone; disable the camera, Face Time or multiplayer games; and view their web browsing history.
