Curb Web n App Use by Child

Smartphones and tablets are taking over kids’ lives…

Children need to broaden their horizons by exploring the world around them. And in this digital age, going online is an important part of this process. But that is where the danger lies, due to the proliferation of porn sites, gambling sites, gaming sites and the like. With even 3-year old kids learning to use smartphones and tablets, the need of the hour is that children are not exposed to undesirable content at an impressionable age. Installing apps indiscriminately and running up large bills for in-app purchases is also an area of concern to parents.

In addtion, there are other apps which are not overtly malicious but can be misused by child. You may consider restricting them too. These include Whisper, Tinder, Snapchat, Kik, Tumblr, Periscope and chat apps like AntiChat, Anonymous Chat Rooms, Chat Alternative, Char Roulette, Chat & Flirt and Live Chat Roulette.

Apps which enable parental control…

Parental control apps installed on the smartphones and tablets help parents oversee and control the online behavior of their kids by blocking or regulating access to harmful websites and other online content. These apps also ensure that even harmless websites, online games and social media platforms are not accessed indiscriminately and obsessively by children so that adequate time is available for sleep, studies, outdoor play etc. The apps also help in ensuring physical safety of the kid by knowing as to when he or she arrives or leaves school, his or her present location etc.
