App For Monitoring Kids' Mobile Devices Lets You Read Deleted Texts
Parental snooping has just gone to a new level, and for many parents it couldn’t come a moment too soon. Let’s face it, as honest and upfront as most people think their kids are or at least hope they’re being, there’s lots of stuff they’re hiding from you. Gasp, not my son or daughter, you say! Sadly, it’s true. What you actually see on their social media is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s what they’re not sharing with you that’s given rise to an app called uKnowKids. It was designed to make parenting easier and to keep your kids safe online, whether it be from a computer or mobile device.
The point of the app is to ensure that your children are using social and mobile technology safely and responsibly. Unfortunately, sometimes social media platforms include features that allow kids to partake in unsafe practices that anyone with half a lick of sense would know tweens and teens would abuse before they made it available to them. Take SnapChat’s speed filter, for instance. Who in their right mind thought a warning or disclaimer telling kids not to take pictures of their speedometer while driving was going to stick? Why provide it in the first place?
Taking Control of the Situation
Part of the problem is kids are obsessed with living in real time. In fact, they’re so obsessed about it that they’re missing living life for real because they’re so busy with selfies and chronicling every move they make. The other part of the problem is parents are, for the most part, clueless about what’s going on. Now’s your chance to take control and find out for yourself exactly what is going on with your kids. Don’t look at it as snooping. Look at it as possibly saving their lives. uKnowKids is an all-inclusive tool for monitoring your child's digital and mobile activities with one easy to use digital parenting dashboard to make you a super sleuth right from your own phone or computer.
App Free Trial Offer
Not only can you test drive the app for free for one week, but you can go to their site first and try their live demo before even committing to the trial offer. It explains everything to you so you know exactly what you’re paying for. The prices are set with convenient payment plans for monthly, yearly and lifetime, if you want to take care of it all at once, and it includes the capability to monitor the activity of up to four kids. You’ll know everything they do on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and be able to do deep web social scanning for hidden or secret accounts on sites like Bebo, Foursquare, Habbo, Gaia, XBOX Live, Formspring, LinkedIn, Tumblr, LastFM, Flickr and YouTube.
Read Deleted Texts
Perhaps the best feature is the ability to view things like SMS text messages and MMS text messages sent, received and deleted along with phone calls made, received and missed. You can also see their contacts, installed mobile applications, photos taken with their mobile devices and track device locations as well as schedule automatic check-ins or create geofences around places of interest. To top it off, there’s a notification system feature that will flag risky posts, activities and people and translates slang and text-lingo that you might not be hip or savvy about. Now you don’t have to waste your time looking it up.
Ignore No More
uKnow Kids is like Ignore No More on steroids, the ingenious app that one Texas mother created when she was tired of her kids not getting in touch with her. Basically, it allows you to shut their smartphones down remotely so that the only people they can call until they contact you is 911 and a select set of numbers you’ve programmed in besides yours. After she employed the super successful app, her kids never ignored her calls again. It’s become wildly popular with parents in the process, because kids are constantly shirking parental calls and pretending they didn’t hear it, the battery was dead or they left their phone somewhere else.
Does any of this sound familiar? If so, you can check both of these proactive parenting apps out at their Websites we’ve conveniently linked for you above. Why wait until something tragic happens to get involved? There are hundreds of testimonials on both apps from parents who sleep a whole lot better at night since they’ve taken the leap and employed a little parenting help 21st century style. The app works with Android and iOS devices.
