How To Discretely Monitor Your Kids Text Messages, Social Media And Other Online Activity
Finally, there may be a solution for concerned parents looking to make sure their kids are acting safe and responsible while online. mSpy, a top rated parental monitoring software has launched a new and improved version that records all critical online activity across all devices (iPhone, Android, PC and Mac) and sends it to a secure website so that parents can view this data from any internet connected device.
With smartphones, tablets and laptops, today’s kids have complete uncensored freedom to say anything, talk to anyone, see everything and photograph who knows what. With the average teen sending over 3,500 texts per month, this leaves tremendous opportunity for tweens and teens to make a single life altering mistake that cannot be denied or deleted and can be broadcasted virally over multiple social networks.
Dangers of social media for kids
With the recent explosion in social media and the fact that over 50% of kids get their first cellphones before the age of 13, parents have been clamoring for a way to supervise their kids’ online activity such as text messages (particularly deleted ones), call logs, web history, gps, photos and other messaging and social media apps.
According to Common Sense Media, the average kid now spends over 9 hours per day on their electronic devices, and parents often have no idea or visibility into what their kids are saying or doing, and kids are often not willing to volunteer this information.
Recent studies, which indicate that over 50% of kids have sexted, suggest why kids are not always forthcoming with their online activities. Sadly, too many kids never anticipate that a private message could be broadcasted and create an indelible record that can haunt them and their parents for the rest of their lives.
Solution: parental monitoring software
But mSpy provides parents with a powerful yet easy to use solution that allows them complete and convenient visibility into their kids’ digital activities.
Compatible with iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android phone and tablet), PC and Mac, mSpy is a solution that allows parents to monitor all devices and consolidates all online activity into one secure web-based user interface. In addition, mSpy can even email you all recorded data in an hourly or daily report so that you don’t need to log in.
Different from other mSpy products, mSpy for iOS does not require access to the device (iPhone or iPad) as there is no software to download and thus no need to jailbreak the device. Parents simply need the iCloud username and password. After entering these into our interface, mSpy automatically records the iPhone’s activity and sends it to your online account.
mSpy for Android, PC and Mac are just as easy to set up but do require physical access to the devices for 5 minutes or less in order to download a program available from your mSpy account.
With mSpy, it is possible to monitor more than one device at the same time, so you can check up on both a PC and an iPhone using the same interface for one unified view.
You will also receive a real-time notification when “alert” words you select appear in messages and more. Now you can be aware of any dangerous activity your child may be facing including sexting, online predators, or whether your child is a victim of any type of cyberbullying.
You can read all the iPhone or Android text messages your child has sent and received( even if they are deleted). You can also view their phone call logs, phone contacts and web browsing history, and monitor Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Skype activity. mSpy also uses the phone's GPS to track its location on a map.
All mSpy products are discreet/tamper-proof. This means your child can’t find the application and thus cant remove it. While some consider this invisibility to be controversial, it is completely legal as long you are the parent or guardian and your child is under 18.
Of course, it is up to each parent to decide if they want to tell their child about the use of monitoring software. We do generally recommend being transparent as it is better to prevent bad behavior rather than to catch it, but every situation is different.
Get peace of mind knowing your kids are safe
