I have been searching for the best parental control software to monitor kids cell phone and internet activity for sometime now. Because my youngest who is almost 10 years old has been asking for a cell phone. Mainly because most of the kids in his class have them. However I didn’t let my oldest 2 have them until they were at least 16 years old. I just feel it’s not necessary, but times are changing and children not having one seems to be a thing of the past. One of the main reason I didn’t want to get our youngest a cell phone is because of all the dangers online and things he doesn’t need to see at his age. With a cell phone he can access nearly anything he wants to see and that’s just not ok with us.
Plus there are many apps he doesn’t need access to that are already on the phone when you buy it. I also don’t want him messing around with apps and ruining a new phone we spent good money on. Idealy I would like him to have a way to message mom, dad, his sister and brother. Along with taking photos, playing games I approve of, some internet but with blocking on stuff I don’t approve as well as Youtube but with some much needed filtering. And of course being able to call home.
I finally found a solution with good parental control software to monitor our children’s cell phones and that’s Mobicip! This app will allow me to control all the things I was worried about and more. Plus I could monitor my older kids phones if needed.
Mobicip is a cloud-based parental control software that helps you create a safe and secure internet experience for your family, school, or business that uses iOS, Android and Windows devices. It allows us to secure the internet for our kids from unhealthy and harmful content. By replacing the browsing app and more with a secure one you can customize. Leaving a safe internet for the whole family and children in particular. As the world wide web slowly takes over our everyday lives, it is extremely important that we protect ourselves from the harms on the internet.

Not only can you block them from seeing things that are harmful but you can see in your dashboard what is was that was block and what they were searching for. You can also filter for each device from Monitor, Strict, Mature, and Moderate. This feature also send you the report so you can monitor without them knowing.
I found Mobicip is very simple to use and it was having a great content filtering solution. This app pays for itself knowing my children will be safe online. It will check out the entire web page to determine if there is any offensive content even on the allowed sites you set based on the filtering level chosen by the parent. When children try to access something you have restrictions on, or harmful content that you placed filters for. Well they will be met with either asking for the password or letting them know the content has been restricted for their safety. They can also request certain sites and you can later give them access and add to their permanent approved list.

Choose to block apps you want, change the pass code when needed, restrict certain apps, block new apps from being installed and approve them first, block the play store or the iTunes store, see how much money they have spent, what apps they download, what apps are paid, and more. Allow/block domains or websites, customize categories that should be allowed for each user profile, or blacklist specific phrases or keywords. It’s virtually everything you need in one app for keeping our kids safe online.
