Track My Mac announces new parental control feature that allows parents to monitor and restrict children online.

Initially, our main goal was to focus on anti-theft and tracking functions, though after receiving positive feedback from our users we realised that some Track My Mac features can be used as a parental control app.

The next-generation anti-theft application is designed to help find a lost or stolen Mac and gather location information, photos and other data to recover a user’s property. The parental control functionality can be used to monitor and control a child’s online lifestyle on a Mac computer. Originally developed for the purpose of recovering a lost or stolen Macs by using a connected iPhone, Track My Mac can be used as an additional precautionary tool for parents when children are using the Internet and they want to control or limit screen time. The Track My Mac parental control tool includes a Lock Screen feature that allows parents to remotely lock down the computer via their iPhone. This functionality works both ways, parents can lock the screen and unlock it with one click instead of entering a password.

“Initially, our main goal was to focus on anti-theft and tracking functions, though after receiving positive feedback from our users we realised that some Track My Mac features can be used as a parental control app,” says Alex Kernishniuk, MacKeeper CEO.

"With this handy app, I really feel that my Mac is better protected. It is also a great parental control tool. An unlimited number of devices can be associated with a Track My Mac account. Rarely has something good when we do not pay. This app is the exception to the rule. I found him no fault at the moment,” quote from a real Track My Mac user, Sep 12, 2016.

According to Simon Jary, a children and technology expert and publisher of PC Advisor, ‘parental control, tracking usage and lockdown are important but so far not solved problems for parents’. That’s why, parents should establish screen time rules and pay due attention to online behaviour of their children. However, Track My Mac can serve as an additional tool for parents to remotely manage their children's screen time.
