We live in a world where our personal lives are more and more accessible to anyone and everyone. We live in a world where our children have much more freedom than ever before. There are class and group outings and social gatherings that happen on a much more frequent basis than ‘back in the day’. At the same time, kids don’t even need to leave the house to hang out and socialize with friends as they can easily do so online.

For a while we have given our children simple mobile phones – even children as young as six – so they can contact us if they’re in trouble or need us. But phones have evolved into smartphones, with the ability to send and receive pictures and texts. Most of the phones our children use, now and in the future, have internet access, SMS, MMS, IM and email. Yes, using a system where you control their access and content – just like you do at home on the computer – is helpful to your child.

This kind of control keeps you informed, keeps you up to date with your child, and gives you the peace of mind you deserve. It’s up to you to decide how much control you want or need. Smart Protect gives you the ability to choose how involved you want or need to be.

Child access to email, phone calls, SMS are all privileges but are increasingly becoming a must-have item even for them to socially interact with family and friends. We live in a world where electronic communication is so easy and important. Being able to monitor who your child is in contact with is vital and may just be a life-saver too.

Smart Protect is a parental control and kids monitoring software. All our technology is developed completely in-house and covers Android, iPhone / iPad, Windows and Mac

In order to install Smart Protect you will need full access physically to your child’s phone first. This includes any and all passwords that may have been set on it. Once you have complete access to their phone you quickly and simply download and install Smart Protect and the icon will be visible. 

Because honesty is the best policy it is recommended to speak to your child first about the need to monitor their safety and why Smart Protect is being installed and how it is going to be used. There is no need to hide any icon or anything like that as this is not a spying application.

Once Smart Protect is installed only you can remove it. Your child can wipe their phone of all data but you'll be notified if that happens. They will not have access to the data already stored in your secured Parental Control Center online, and they will not be able to modify any Smart Protect settings.

Children do have privacy rights, just like adults, although because of their minority status, the rights of children are limited. Whether three years old, or 13 or 17, knowing where your child is and what they are doing is a parents number one priority and your parental legal right. 

Children are expected to obey their parents and the legal system supports the parent's rights to enforce this (except in instances of parental neglect and abuse). The issue of invading a child's privacy tends to arise in other areas, like with health records or collecting data, and not in parental rights to protect their children.

Parents and legal guardians have the right to know where their children are at all times. This is completely supported by the courts and legal system. It is in fact, neglect and abuse, to NOT know where your child is at all times.

You want to know they are sleeping safely in their beds at night and that you took them to school and they are safe in classes with adult teachers and supervision, and so forth. It is your parental legal right to know where and what your child is doing.

As a parent, your priority is to provide for your children, protect them, and help them grow up into responsible adults. We subscribe to open communication, clear and understandable family rules, empowering parents and protecting children with Smart Protect.
