View enables parents to keep an eye on what their kids are doing in these digital spaces – even if they aren’t able to physically monitor usage in real-time.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) July 22, 2020
The popular parenting app, OurPact, has announced today the release of a groundbreaking and potentially controversial new feature, View, that allows parents to securely capture and remotely observe live screenshots of their children’s mobile devices.
With kids and teens spending more time than ever on screens due to quarantine, View provides parents with invaluable insight into their digital habits and activities, even when it’s not possible to be in the same physical space as them. The goal, according to OurPact’s CEO, is helping parents identify and address concerning patterns of online behavior that may otherwise go unnoticed.
While View’s monitoring technology is visible on children’s devices, this innovative feature is bound to initiate discussions around children’s right to parental privacy in online spaces – or, the responsibility of parents to monitor this same activity.
“In the past, children would use shared family computers that resided in common living areas, making it relatively easy to keep tabs on what they were doing online,” says Amir Moussavian, the Founder of OurPact. “Now, kids can interact with the entirety of the internet – both the good and the bad- with a private mobile device in their back pocket. View enables parents to keep an eye on what their kids are doing in these digital spaces – even if they aren’t able to physically monitor usage in real-time – and use the insights they gain to drive crucial, timely offline conversations."
In an age of privacy concerns, OurPact has developed View with security front of mind. All images captured from children’s devices are encrypted end-to-end, ensuring they are only available to parents through a secure account login.
View is staged for a significant update in the coming months, aimed at providing parents with smart reports that share at-a-glance insights into children’s online habits. Today's announcement establishes OurPact as a fully comprehensive suite of parental control features, including application management, location monitoring, web filtering, and monitoring capabilities.
OurPact is a top-rated parental control app, used by 1.2 million families around the world. OurPact offers management of children's mobile iOS and Android devices through an iOS, Android or web parent application.
