By the way, I got the Redmi Note 4 phone and I must say it's not too bad. I managed to install google location sharing and I am also trying this Norton parental app where I will be able to track her search engines and see what websites and apps she surfs. I know I might get slammed by people who say I am invading her privacy but I think at 13 it's important for me to know what she is googling.
I use a free app Qustodio. The free version gives a usage report . So you get a web activity, social activity and activity timeline and activity summary. You can see today or last 7 days activity. The premium version has a lot more features especially for controlling activity but is expensive. If your purpose is monitoring then the free version fits.
No nobody should slam you for monitoring - it is hard to be an informed and involved parent. Cyber security and wellness experts recommand that parents monitor the content and usage of sites teens visit besides guiding them with the dos and donts and etiquette of social media/forums. It is actually hard for us parents to keep up with the latest in tech, making that a tough job.
DS got his own smart phone only this year. I have let my Ds know that I will monitor and continue to do so for the next few years.I have the lock password too. Initially he was very indignant and bristled about lack of privacy. Slowly, he has accepted it and I keep my intervention minimal. I dont police the content/language of his chats, especially what his other friends post, as long as his behaviour is reasonable. Even when he over used his phone, I just show him the daily report , which gives a pie chart of hours of usage and in which app. And he calibrates it down by himself. The punishment is if he doesnt i will confiscate his phone. So far I never had to.
Hi Posting for the first time. Qustodio app is for iphone, do we have a similar type for Android Phones? Anyone can advise?
Yes there is. Ds has an Android phone.
