Funamo proudly releases its latest parental control software Funamo Parental Control for Android devices that gives parents the power to safeguard their kids' mobile phones and tablets. Now parents can have peace of mind when giving mobile devices to their kids knowing that they are protected by Funamo.
Online safety has always been the number 1 concern when it comes to parental control. According to a recent study done in UK, 33% of ten-year-olds have seen explicit materials online and 80 percent of kids have accessed pornography online when they reach 16. Unlike a family PC, a mobile phone or a tablet is a very personal device and is often carried by the child to places such as schools and libraries. It makes parental control for mobile device even more imperative and challenging.
“Numerous studies have shown that using mobile devices greatly enhances kids' learning capabilities.” said Howard Li, Funamo’s founder and CEO. “However it also creates new challenges such as pornography, game addiction, sexting and cyber bullying, just to name a few. Parents are looking for an effective and easy-to-use parental control solution for mobile devices.
“Our patent-pending web filtering technology was designed from ground up specifically for mobile devices. Unlike many other apps currently on the market, Funamo Parental Control offers highly robust web filtering that is optimized for power efficiency and mobile environment. It also filters out inappropriate content from web search and Youtube search results. Customization is possible with user’s own blacklist and whitelist.”
Besides web filtering, Funamo also provides device monitoring and application control. All contacts, phone calls, SMS messages, websites visited, applications run and recent locations are automatically logged and uploaded to Funamo server. So parents can login from any web browser 24/7 to keep track of all the activities on the device. Application control allows parents to set password and specify time slots for selected applications such as system settings and games. Video tutorials and FAQs can be found at Funamo website.
Funamo Parental Control can be downloaded from Android Market (Google Play) for a free evaluation.
It can be purchased within the app for $19.99 which protects the device for as long as the user owns it. No subscription, no hidden costs. Now for as little as the price of a book, parents can have peace of mind with their kids' mobile devices.
