"Texting is the single most dominant means of communication for adolescents and teens today, by far,” said John DiTroia, Chief Technical Officer of TxtWatcher. “We have a unique perspective into the trends and practices of teens and adolescents who text, by virtue of our message monitoring service and patent-pending translation technology. We want to share these insights with our community of concerned parents, and help them truly understand what their kids are saying and hearing online."
TxtWatcher was founded by parents who were lucky enough to intercept some of their children’s text conversations concerning illicit activities that could have been life altering. Based on this experience, TxtWatcher was born with a vision of providing a service that helps parents understand what their children are communicating via text messaging. 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.
The TxtWatcher Parental Text Message Monitoring service silently monitors Android smartphones for sent and received text messages, scanning and alerting parents to behaviors such as cyber-bullying, sexting, or alcohol and drug use. At the heart of TxtWatcher is a comprehensive, patent-pending translation engine called "SmartAlec" that is constantly evolving to “break the text code”. Currently, TxtWatcher.com is installed on thousands of mobiles phones tracking hundreds of thousands of text messages per month.
