Parents provide their children with cell phones for safety and instant access. But parents have unknowingly put their children in harm’s way by not understanding the risks associated with these communication devices. Children do not ascertain threats or have enough discipline to limit usage, and most parents have no idea how dangerous unlimited access is. For example, instant messaging and texting on a cell phone—although fun, practical, and easy—can be dangerous if used maliciously by strangers, cyber bullies, while driving, or worse.

Children may find themselves involved in a crisis where they end up in a spot not anticipated. This is why you want to be vigilant and track your child’s cell phone location as well as supervise his or her calls and text messages. Now, there is a comprehensive service with customized applications that can provide a balance between technology and safety. Once installed on our children’s smart phones, the service can help parents track and manage their phones while providing greater assurance and peace of mind about our children’s whereabouts, activities, and safety.

We are completing our final testing of the NGJ Mobile Safe Kids product, and very shortly we will be providing a service that will allow you access to everything going into and out of your child’s mobile device.

Features include:

  • Manage up to 10 different devices, including phones and tablets.
  • Locate your child remotely using his or her phone’s GPS.
  • View call and text logs to make sure your kids are not talking to an unknown person.
  • Restrict Internet surfing to only approved sites. For example, you can say no to specific websites with unsuitable themes, language, or pornography.
  • Use 24-hour tracking, which allows you to view a log as to where your child has been over the time frame of your choosing.
  • Enable geo-fencing, which is setting rules based on geography. For example, if a child should be in school between 8 AM and 4 PM and they leave the protected area of the geo-fence, you will be notified via text message and email.
  • Employ support for additional mobile platforms.

The service will be made available FREE for 30 days with a simple download. The cost after the trial is $49.95 per year, covering up to 10 devices per family. You pick the 10 devices you want to protect. If you would like additional information or to get a free trial, please contact us.
