One thing that is frustrating for any parent is to not know the location of his or her kid. With Kidslox, that should never be the case. like most of the options for a parental control app, there are powerful location tracking features. You can see their exact location on a map. You can also set custom zones and see their location history.
Kidslox uses cellular networks, Wi-Fi, and GPS to track the location of your child. Even if there is no internet connection, the app will keep on tracking location. Once the device is connected to the internet, it will pool the data and show all the locations recorded. If the device monitored is Android, the location data will refresh every minute. On the other hand, if the device monitored is on the iOS platform, the location data will refresh every 100 meters of change.
Another thing that we love about Kidslox is the ability to set daily limits depending on what you assume is healthy for your kid. You can set the exact screen time that kids can have on a given day. When the time has elapsed, the phone or tablet will instantly switch to Lockdown Mode, and at this point, it can no longer be used.
Setting Up a Schedule
When it comes to time management, one of the things that you can do is to set-up a schedule. This allows you to pre-set a time session during the day. For instance, if kids are supposed to be studying from 6 pm to 7 pm, you can set the device in Lockdown Mode so that they cannot use it. Doing this is easy. Go to the app, click the Time tab, and choose Schedule. Press the Add Schedule button and set the schedule as desired. You can also customize the name of the schedule.
Adding a Daily Time Limit
Aside from setting up a schedule, you can also set a fixed amount of time that kids are allowed to use their phones. To do this, go to the app and open the Time tab. Tap Edit and adjust the time as you wish. When the screen is turned on, the timer works. When the screen is off, the timer stops. Once the limit has lapsed, the phone will be in locked mode.
