SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
The leading parental control app FamilyTime has announced a new update to alleviate concerns of parents who are worried about the safety of their children while they're at school or away from home. FamilyTime is widely regarded as one of the best parental control apps due to its market-beating list of parental app features and recent events have motivated the app makers to try and do their bid to help parents keep their children safe.
Features that can help children in emergencies
Some of the features that FamilyTime offers parents are tailored to help in emergency situations. This includes the SOS button feature that allows children with FamilyTime on their iOS or Android devices to send an SOS message out to their parents with the press of a single button. Even though the children in these situations might not have the time to dial 911, getting the word of emergency out through the press of a single button can be a life saver.
Once parents find out that their child is in danger, their first concern is where their children are and if they're okay. With FamilyTime, they can track the exact location of their child and make sure emergency services can locate and reach them in time.
The other side of the coin
FamilyTime also boasts a number of features that can let parents find out what their children are up to on their devices. That is what their upcoming internet filter feature aims to do. Speaking on the announcement, FamilyTime Head of Branding Maria Cordella, said, "In addition to helping the victims, the cause of school incidents also has to be considered. We had to think of a way that parents can find out if their children have any dangerous tendencies and nip the problem in the bud."
In line with that thinking process, FamilyTime's newly announced web filter option will give parents the ability to monitor and restrict their children's web browsing on their devices. This includes being able to force SafeSearch on Google and Bing, restricting YouTube searches to non-adult videos, blocking access to specific websites, and restricting searches or websites based on keywords.
Existing features like SMS message monitoring, call tracking and blocking, location monitoring, and geofencing can also help parents keep an eye on their children's activity and address any concerning behavior they might find.
FamilyTime found popularity recently when a parent using the app managed to apprehend a sexual predator who was targeting their child. The app has always been ahead of the curve with regard to innovations in the parental control app space and continues to respond to parent's concerns with new features and updates.
FamilyTime is a parental control application for all Android smartphones and iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices. For more information, please visit their website or call +18667231238 for technical support.
