When your kids are at home, keeping an eye on them falls on parents' shoulders and when you have teenagers with smartphones that can be a tall order.
A new company has developed a way to monitor your teens on their iPhones and Android phones.
Co-founder of TeenSafe, Ameeta Jain, stopped by the FOX 7 studios to explain how the service works with groundbreaking mobile monitoring technology giving parents the ability to see incoming, outgoing and deleted text messages, web browsing history, contacts, call logs, Facebook posts, and Instagram and WhatsApp activity through a secure, online TeenSafe account.
Many teens are subjected to cyber bullying, sexual harassment and peer-pressure issues that are often communicated through mobile devices without a parent's knowledge. Jain says TeenSafe provides parents with the ability to see these messages and intervene before any of these types of activities have the potential to do harm.
In addition to monitoring a child's activity for risky behavior, Jain says TeenSafe can also help validate a child's good behavior when using their mobile technology responsibly, which provides peace of mind to parents.
