MMGuardian Review

Introduction

MMGuardian is a full-featured parental control solution introduced in 2012. Since then, it has scanned more than 2 billion texts and raised more than 1.5 million alerts. It can provide you with peace of mind. You can guard your kids against cyberbullying, drugs, and violence, among other things that can result from irresponsible use of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.

Is MMGuardian the right parental control app for you? Read this short review and learn from the insights we’ll share.

How to Set Up WebWatcher

Regardless of the device where you will install MMGuardian, the process is the same. You will first install this on the phone of your child, then install the program on yours. During registration, you need to provide a few details, which include your phone number, email address, and password.

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.

Activity Record

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.

Location Tracking

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.

Time Management

You can limit your kid’s s screen time with the help of MMGuardian. You can set the schedule when the gadget will be automatically locked. When this happens, they cannot use the device other than for making emergency communication or connecting to the parent’s phone that is linked to the MMGuardian account.

To use the time management feature, start by accessing the app on your child’s device. Click Time Settings and choose the times you want the gadget to be locked.

There is also an option to set screen time to limit use. You can set the limit at a range of 30 minutes to 4 hours. The best thing is that you can choose the categories to limit, such as games and social apps. Otherwise, there is also a limit to block everything on your kid’s phone.

Conclusion

In sum, MMGuardian is a powerful and feature-packed choice for a parental control program. Like many of the apps we have reviewed, MMGuardian has basic functionalities, such as tracking calls and SMS, time management, and web filtering, among others. However, managing the features can be quite complicated. The app would have benefited with a better design and an easier to use interface. Also, there is no geofencing, which makes the location management features inferior compared to its competitors.
