As a parent, it is natural to want to protect your child and monitor him from time to time. No harm should come to him and his innocence must not be taken advantage of. Cyber-bullying is a major concern for parents today. The effects it can have on your child are monstrous. To save you and your child from the entire trauma, Android app developers Cresoltech LLC have developed Trackidz. This app is the simplest way to keep track of your child online and keep him safe.
This app has two parts- the Trackidz child app and the Trackidz Dashboard, the counterpart for parents. With these two put together, you can ensure anti-bullying and firm parental control. It allows you to block messaging, apps, screen time and browsing for certain time intervals to ensure that your child does not get too much screen time. You first need to set up Trackidz on your child’s Android device. Following this, you need to set up the Trackidz dashboard on your own device. You can view the usage of your child’s device through the dashboard. In case your child does not own an independent device, then you can set up both of these on your own device.
Trackidz requires Android 4.0 or later versions and 3.5 MB of free memory space on your device. It can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. The app comes with a free trial period of 15 days. This allows you to use the app and judge its worth for yourself before upgrading to the premium version. The paid account comes with a one-time charge of $4.99 for all devices. You may choose to discontinue using the app after the free trial period if you do not find it helpful.
With this app, you can monitor the time spent by your child on his tablet or smartphone even though you are not present in his vicinity. You can keep track of your child from your workplace or from anywhere you like. Research has proven that too much on-screen time can have negative impacts such as cyber-bullying, depression and lower grades for teens and children. The app protects your child from cyber-bullying by notifying you of any sudden dramatic changes in the usage of your child’s device as compared to the average usage of the previous 5 weeks. This is often seen as a symptom of cyber-bullying.
To ensure that your child does not misuse or overuse the internet, this app gives you certain control over your child’s device. You can control the time he can spend on each individual app or even on a certain group of apps. You can create Block schedules, which allow you to block Apps during set time intervals. Also, the app can keep a log of websites visited by your child, which you can view on your Dashboard directly. With all this in place, you can be rest assured that your child does not fall prey to misuse or overuse of their Android smartphones.
