Safer Kid Filtering, Blocking, and Monitoring
The main feature Safer kid promotes is the app rating service that lets parents know if the apps their kids are using on their devices are inappropriate for age or content.
Text Message Monitoring
With this breakthrough feature, you can see who your child is texting and what they are talking about. You can do it remotely by accessing your child’s text messages, you can act quickly when there are issues of bullying, violence, or sexual harassment, among others. You can also see details about the recipient, such as contact number.
Phone Call History
If you want to know who your child has been talking to, then Safer Kid has you covered. You can see the contact information of the person on the other end, as well as details like time and duration of the call. However, take note that this feature is exclusive to Android users.
Web Browsing History and Blocking
Taking a peek at the web browsing history of kids is one way to have an idea about their interests and behaviors. If they are viewing websites with themes you find inappropriate, you can talk to them. More than just viewing web browsing history, there is also an option to automatically block adult websites.
Screen Time Management
While Safer Kid has no option to disable the entire device after a certain period, you can manage apps based on the time they are allowed and not allowed. For instance, you can specify a sleep and wake up time for third-party apps, making sure that kids won’t be using them longer than what they are allowed to.
Using the Safer Kid mobile app, you can quickly assess more than 200,000 apps. Apps are displayed in two categories – age-inappropriate apps and apps you should be aware of. The reports are customized based on your child’s age. When you click on the app, you can see the risk rating, which is either high or low. There is an icon that shows the risk of each app, such as bullying, sex crime, and meeting strangers, among other things. You can also visit their website and read comprehensive reviews of the most popular apps.
