MMGuardian – Family Filtering, Blocking, and Monitoring
With MMGuardian, you can enjoy a variety of web filters to be sure that your kid won’t be able to access any age-inappropriate content. The best thing is that they cannot bypass the filters that you will set.
Through the app installed on your phone, you can toggle the On and Off command. When you activate this feature, kids can use only the MMGuardian browser. All other browsers will be disabled automatically.
To filter web content, you can also select the age range of the user, making sure that they can see only age-appropriate content. You can also customize the categories of the content that you do not want your child to access. Click View or Edit Category Settings and you can customize what your child can see. You will receive an app in the parent app regarding the blocked websites or keywords that your kid is accessing. There are more than 150 web filters available at MMGuardian, which is one of the most extensive from the parental control apps we have tested.
You can also manually input the URLs of the websites that you would like to block.
With the use of MM Guardian, several records are kept, which will help you keep tab of what your child has been up to.
Call and Texts
You can monitor the calls and texts on your kid’s gadgets. This includes both incoming and outgoing communication. You can also set limits on who could call or text the user.
Web Browsing History
Using this app will make you in the know of the websites that your child is accessing or the search terms that are inputted. From here, you can also decide what is inappropriate for your kid and block it instantly.
Social Media Apps
As expected, MMGuardian is also capable of monitoring social media messages, such as Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. You can view a detailed report of these messages, including details about the person your kid is talking to.
You can remotely locate your child to know their whereabouts through MMGuardian’s control panel. Through the app, you will be able to track the real-time location of your kid or see history where your child has been in the last seven days. One odd feature is that you can see the speed at which your child moves from one location to another, which we don’t find to be useful.
This can also be activated through a short text message. All that you have to do is to type Locate and send it to your child’s phone. Next, you will get an alert depending on what the GPS detects.
One of the biggest drawbacks of MMGuardian is that there is no option for geofencing. We have reviewed many apps where this is one of their most important features. It would have been better if you can restrict several locations and receive instant alerts when the system detects that your child is in a potentially unsafe location.
