FamiSafe: The Virtual Godparent
Occasionally, we check out new mobile applications that come out in the Google Play Store and on the iOS marketplace, especially if they have anything to do with safety and financial aspects. Today we take a look at a new app that caught our eye, called FamiSafe. While it seems the functionalities are still to be ironed out to their best capabilities, the purpose of the app is excellent. What are we talking about?
Are you worried about the excessive screen time consumption of your child or by the fact that they have a phone and full knowledge of how to use the internet? That's even though you may trust your kid with the device, but you can't help yourself as you are conscious about the lurking vultures of the net. You also know that if you keep asking your kids repetitively to be careful and look into their phone, it makes them irritated and feel that they are not trustworthy.
The developers at WonderShare understand your difficulties and concerns as a parent. Hence they have developed an app called FamiSafe. The primary purpose of this app is parental control over the internet. Once you download this app in your child's phone (and yours), you can start using its features, to make parenting easier. Let's take a look:

Here are some of the features you can use:
Are you worried that your child is becoming obsessed with the screen which is taking them far away from reality? Using the FamiSafe app, you can restrict the time and set boundaries on when your child can use their phone.
Are you scared that while walking back home from school your kid will get distracted and wander off the path? FamiSafe helps you by tracking the location of your child every minute of the day so you can be sure when and where your child is at every moment.
You must have heard of the Blue Whale movement, which led to the death of some teens. You should be concerned about the games that your child plays. However, with the FamiSafe app, you can block the harmful apps you know about, so your child never knows or comes across these apps much less play on them.
Children are vulnerable today to a lot of things, and it's your responsibility to protect them completely. Just like cyberbullying in schools, now it happens on the internet as well and is much more dangerous. If your child receives any suspicious messages, FamiSafe can easily catch them and notify you so you can take appropriate action.
