TxtWatcher Launches New Parental Text Message Monitoring Service

Share Article

New service provides parents the ability to translate text slang into English and receive real-time alerts for risky communication, such as drugs, alcohol, cyber-bullying and Sexting.

TxtWatcher, a new company focused on providing mobile tools to help parents keep their children safe, today unveiled a new parental text message monitoring service that enables parents to “Know What Your Kids Are Texting.” TxtWatcher's ground-breaking monitoring app copies all text messages and attached pictures from your child's Android phone to a secure website where the messages are translated and stored for review, even messages that your child deletes from his or her phone. TxtWatcher has the most comprehensive text and slang translation engine available today called SmartAlec. There are thousands of up-to-date translations and TxtWatcher’s patent-pending technology alerts parents to risky communication based on the translated meaning of text messages. No other product or service on the market does this today.

“They have built an incredible service that allows me to really stay on top of what my kids are doing. My kids text constantly and I would randomly take their cell phones and check their messages. However, they often delete messages and pictures before I could look at them and some messages are written in texting code, so I had absolutely no idea what they were saying. With TxtWatcher I can review their texts and pictures. The text message translation and alerting features are critical. I receive potential alcohol, drug, and sexting alerts to my cell phone and I can review the specific text messages and pictures immediately,” said Jill Williams, a mother of three and a TxtWatcher customer.

“Based on an experience that took place with my son, I had the idea to build a unique parental text message monitoring service that would translate texting and other slang into English and alert parents to risky behavior. I shared the high-level idea with a couple of gifted developers I know. Eventually, they asked me to install the TxtWatcher mobile app on my kids’ cell phones and use the service. I was totally amazed and I began telling other parents about TxtWatcher. The mother of a teenage daughter, who died from a drug overdose told me that her daughter texted about drugs during her six years of progressive use--including the day before she died--but was always steps ahead of her parents' ability to keep up. The mother let me know that if she'd had an effective way to monitor the texts in real-time, her smart and beautiful girl might still be alive today. TxtWatcher can help prevent this type of tragedy from occurring early in the process,” said Jim Cumella, TxtWatcher Senior Advisor.

TxtWatcher has created a guide to help parents develop a monitoring strategy for their children’s online activity including Facebook, Twitter and most importantly, Texting. The free Parents Are Listening Guide is available on the TxtWatcher website.

About TxtWatcher:

At the heart of TxtWatcher is a comprehensive patent-pending translation engine, SmartAlec that is constantly evolving to “break the text code,” allowing parents to understand what their children are communicating within their text dialogues. Text messages are scanned so that parents can be alerted to certain types of behavior such as, cyber-bullying, sexting, or alcohol and drug use. These alerts can be sent to parents via email or even as a text message. By monitoring their children’s most common form of communication TxtWatcher’s customers find the service to be a powerful parental tool and it gives them peace of mind.
