TeenSafe, the developer of a new sophisticated iPhone and Android monitoring service for parents of teens and children who are smart phone users, today announced the official launch of its comprehensive mobile and social monitoring for parents wanting to track their children’s mobile phone and social activity. The web-based service works with groundbreaking mobile monitoring technology giving parents the ability to see incoming, outgoing and deleted text messages, web browsing history, contacts, call logs, Facebook posts, and Instagram activity through a secure, online TeenSafe account. As the pioneer in this category TeenSafe was the first to develop iPhone monitoring without the need to "jailbreak" an iPhone.
The TeenSafe mobile monitoring technology is secure and discreet, allowing customers to choose whether their child is aware their phone is being monitored. The software also uses the phone’s Global Positioning System (GPS), Wi-Fi, and Cellular technology to monitor the phone’s location, letting parents know where their child is located.
"We are extremely proud to announce the official launch of TeenSafe. We understand children are getting mobile phones at younger ages each year. Wonderful advancements in technology have given us the ability to have the world at our fingertips in an instant. As parents we know that along with the good this technology offers, there is a tremendous risk in giving them an opportunity to stumble upon dangers that can affect their whole life. TeenSafe allows parents the ability to make sure their kids are using this very powerful technology safely and responsibly," said Scott Walker, Co-Founder of TeenSafe. "Mobile phones have given children incredible power and access to communication and information that were never accessible to this extent in the past. We wanted to create a tool that would allow parents to open their eyes to how their child is interacting in real time to ensure their safety. Our motto is ‘Protecting Your Most Valuable Treasure’ and as parents too, we make sure that everything we do reinforces that concept."
The idea for TeenSafe was born through personal experiences involving the founders’ teens and their mobile devices, which could have been prevented with the use of monitoring software. Teens today are constantly subjected to extremely challenging social, cyber bullying, sexual harassment and peer-pressure issues that are often communicated through mobile devices without a parent’s knowledge. TeenSafe provides parents with the ability to see these messages and intervene before any of these types of activities have the potential to do harm. The system is designed to facilitate communication between a parent and a child. In addition to monitoring a child’s activity for risky behavior, TeenSafe can also help validate a child’s good behavior by using their mobile technology responsibly, which provides peace of mind to parents.
"I believe TeenSafe goes hand-in-hand when you give your child their first phone. It’s designed to keep lines of communication open and we’ve found that it’s like having a window into your child’s life," said Ameeta Jain, co-founder of TeenSafe. "We teach our children and teens rules when they get in the car, whether it is always wear a seat belt or no texting and driving. Why would we give our children a smartphone, one of the most powerful tools in our lifetime, without some type of guidance and monitoring?"
Once installed, TeenSafe is virtually undetectable on the child’s mobile device. TeenSafe feels it is the parent’s choice if they want to inform the child that they are being monitored, however, they encourage open communication with families. It takes less than five minutes to set up TeenSafe and it’s very simple to use. TeenSafe uses 256-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security to ensure a child’s personal information cannot be viewed by anyone but the parent. For parents who want to test TeenSafe before purchasing, a free, six-day trial is offered to give parents the ability to use all of the system’s features and capabilities.
