Parental Control and Child Monitoring

Apart from always being able to know what truly is going on in your child's life, parental control technologies enable you, as a parent, to control device usage, from "how" a device can be used, to "how often" and "when". You have the ability to screen the content that your child is exposed to and can filter undesirable language, inappropriate images or information and moderate the company that your child keeps online - from preventing specific types of communications, to banning communication with particular people entirely. !!!monitor the current location and historical movements.


Is your child at risk?

  • Is your preteen being groomed by an online predator?
  • Is your child mixed up with the wrong crowd or taking drugs?
  • Is your son or daughter bullying someone or being bullied by someone?
  • Is your child stealing from you or from others?
  • Is your teen engaged in inappropriate activities or criminal behaviour?

These are only a few of the possible 'nightmare' scenario questions that we, as parents, never would wish to answer with a YES - ever.

Unfortunately, no matter how great we are as parents, or what sort of home or background our children come from, there is always some degree of risk that they may be targeted or endangered.

Monitoring Communications - Know who your child is communicating with and what is being discussed or planned. CellSpy will enable you to read the messages that your child is sending and receiving, whether they are SMS's, emails or chats (such as WhatsApp and BBM) - even if they are deleted immediately after your child sent or received them. CellSpy will also allow you to listen to actual phone conversations - either live, as the call is in progress, or by having incoming and outgoing calls recorded and sent to you as audio files that you can listen to on your computer or mobile.

Monitoring Surroundings - Know what type of environment your child is in and what activities are taking place in the vicinity. With CellSpy you are able to remotely monitor activities taking place within proximity of your child's phone. You can listen to (live) or record surrounding conversations and background audio discreetly by remotely activating the microphone. Similarly, the phone's cameras can be remotely activated and snapshots or video clips of activities taking place in view of your child can be sent to you and viewed on your computer or mobile.

Tracking Location - Know where your child is, where your child is likely going, and where your child has been. Not only will CellSpy allow you to view your child's location and recent movements via a secure internet control panel, but you can have your child's current location SMS'd to phone if you do not have internet access at the time. A very useful feature of CellSpy is the GPS Leash and geo-fence which allows you to designate a safety area on a map. If your child leaves that area, you will be alerted via SMS.

Control, Filtering and Blocking - Control when the phone is used, what applications are used, who is communicated with, and filter inappropriate content. This product is ideal for children that make extensive use of their cell phone. You can be alerted whenever certain keywords are used in messages or internet searches or whenever profanity is used. You can limit your child's phone usage by creating time restrictions, and will have access to phone activities. You're able to block communications with certain people or cell phone numbers and can filter which websites or content your child can access.
