MMGuardian is a parental control app that provides you with all the features you need to monitor your child’s phone activities. This app is the ultimate tool for the over protective parent looking for an effective way to keep track of their child’s phone usage.
The app has six functions that allow you to monitor different aspects of your child’s usage via text message commands. You can use this app to locate, lock, set usage time limits, monitor activity, track location and encourage safe driving.
After installing the apps on both the parent’s and child’s phone, you can sign up for a free account by entering your email address and the phone numbers corresponding to each individual user.
Whenever you need to access any of the app’s features you simply send a text command to your child’s phone from your phone and the app will respond to your query. For instance, texting “Locate:” will allow you to locate your child giving you the street address and map overview of the location.
Similarly, you can remotely lock your child’s phone and prevent it from being used for a specific time interval by sending a text command. The time limit command can be used in lieu of lock function if you want to schedule specific dates and times to lock your child’s phone.
The app’s activity monitor allows you to prevent your child from sending or receiving texts with offensive content on their phone. You can specify the words you want to block your child from seeing by entering them directly into the command lines.
To track your child’s location, you can send a track location text command and you’ll receive an updated location every hour or any interval you choose. Finally, by sending a safe driving command you can stop your child from using their phone while they’re driving. Your child’s phone will automatically lock itself when the app detects movement at a speed of more than 10 mph.
Overall, this is a good app for parents who want to know what their child is up to at all times. It may take a little bit of convincing to get your child to willingly install this app on their phone; however this app will help ensure your child is safe and give you peace of mind if any emergency situation is to arise.
