Do you know what your child is texting?
Ever wonder what your kids are up to on their cell phones. Well Social Tech Pop was recently informed about a service we wanted to share with all of you.
My Mobile Watchdog is a monitoring service that allows parents to regulate browsers, applications and function capabilities on teenager's smart phones. It also alerts parents when inappropriate photos & texts are received or sent from their children.
From what we could find the program works with 4 basic and easy steps:
- Once you have activated your child's My Mobile Watchdog Phone, you can log into your web application and see all of your child's contacts. You can then talk with your child and determine for yourself who to designate trusted, suspicious or unapproved.
- When a Suspicious or Unauthorized person tries to call, text, or email your child, it is routed through the My Mobile Watchdog Data Center. Notifications are then sent to all persons you have established from your web application.
- See all suspicious activity with your My Mobile Watchdog web application or alerted phone, along with full content (including images). Be the first line of defense against cyberbullying and sexting.
- Reports are generated for all monitored activity that can not be altered in any way. You can print out reports for school officials, parents, or if necessary, law enforcement agencies.
So far the technology has helped law enforcement catch over 300 predators, including cases of cyberbullying, classmate “sextortion”, and sexual predators switching from social media sites to cell phones.
