Mobiflock Announces My Life, My Child for Parental Controls on Kids' Smartphones

By

Mobiflock has been known for quite a while as a company geared toward helping parents provide their kids with a safer, more fulfilling experience with high tech devices. The company has released a host of different security add-ons that work with a huge variety of different tablets and smartphones.

The security suite has brought a ton of different ways in which parents can block Web access for kids who have their own smartphone, including Blackberry or Android devices. Parents don’t have to follow their kids around anymore in order to make sure they avoid sites they shouldn’t be going to.

Part of this new suite is more than website protection. Mobiflock My Life can now actually give parents the ability to block out calls and texts from certain phone numbers. This means people who have been bullying in a number of ways can be completely blocked from contact through a child’s smartphone.

My Life also allows parents to easily track and monitor basic smartphone usage so they always know how much their children are using the phone for surfing, or who they are talking to at all time. The suite also has an inherent kill switch to track or deactivate a lost or stolen phone.

“It's no longer a case of 'if' my child gets a smartphone, but rather 'when', and the benefits these devices give our children are huge,” said Patrick Lawson, Mobiflock founder. “But no matter how tech-savvy kids appear, they are still children and need both guidance and protection from their parents and guardians. We've carefully built Mobiflock My Child to allow parents to choose the most appropriate restrictions for each of their children and given them the ability to relax these as the child matures.”

“We've also made sure we haven't removed all the fun from having a smartphone!” he jokingly assured.

The programs can be installed on a child’s smartphone simply by getting it from the Android or Blackberry application store. Parents can then have a desktop version on their computer in which they can set permissions.
