New Feature Gives Parents an At-a-Glance View of all the Apps on Their Child’s Device

OurPact, the top-rated parental control platform, today announced a new version of their flagship app, with the launch of “App Details,” a feature that provides parents with a description of all applications installed to their children’s devices. The update signals OurPact's first major feature release following their recent endorsement by Apple. The latest update to OurPact gives parents comprehensive insight and control over applications on their children’s devices including alerts around new app installs, an at-a-glance view at what each app is used for and blocking features. Now, parents can make informed decisions about how they want to manage individual apps across devices without having to leave the OurPact app.

“Our goal is to help families create a balanced digital experience that gives kids the freedom they want while allowing parents to set healthy boundaries. Having knowledge on the many apps children use, or want to use, is a huge piece of that,” said Amir Moussavian, Founder and CEO of OurPact. “The App Details feature gives parents a quick snapshot of the apps on their child’s device to give them a better understanding of their habits, from their top interests to anything that may potentially be of concern.”

Now, parents can interact with their child's App Rules list, which displays all the applications installed on a child's device. Parents can click on any individual app in the list and OurPact will display details about that application from the iOS App or Google Play Stores,

  • App Store Description of the App: features and functionality
  • Age Rating of the App
  • Average Star Rating
  • App Store Images
  • Content Risk Flags: mild profanity, mild alcohol/tobacco/drug use or reference

“App Details” offers parents more control and insight into their children’s devices, because OurPact:

  • Alerts parents when kids/teens install new apps with App Install Alerts
  • Allows parents to see all applications installed on their children’s’ devices
  • Enables parents to view the application details to understand what the app is used for
  • Helps families set appropriate app rules for their children – “Always Block” apps they do not approve of or set them to “Blocked by OurPact” or “Always Allowed”

This update also includes technical improvements to the Family Locator feature, which enables parents to monitor their children’s locations in real-time, receive alerts when children enter or leave specified ‘places,’ find lost devices, and easily coordinate pickups.

OurPact is available for installation in the iOS App Store and for Android users via Google Play. To learn more about OurPact, visit http://www.ourpact.com.
