Private messages and chats
The possibility to exchange short messages instantly is the reason why social media networks are so popular. Indeed, communication through texts is exceptionally convenient and inexpensive way of staying in touch with someone. Unfortunately, not only friends and relatives are the people children text the most.
Sometimes, kids are contacted by people they don't know in person. Some of them may not be the right people for your kids to be friends with. Checking your kid's text messages as well as chats on social media with mSpy, you can nip the dangerous connections in the bud.
Another common way to reach the person is to call on their mobile phone. In fact, this type of communication had existed long before instant messengers were invented. Now, our social media accounts already disclose our phone numbers, so there is no difficulty to call any person.
But, kids are at significant risk of being reached by predators, abusers, bullies, and other hazardous individuals. mSpy imposes incoming calls restrictions to allow parents to add specific phone numbers to the blacklist. Moreover, you can check your kid's contacts list distantly and find out whose numbers they save.
mSpy is not only a useful online activity tracker but also an offline activity monitoring solution. The app tracks the current location of the kid and displays it on the precise map of your area.
If you don't have time to check where your kid is, you can use geofencing to get notified where your child visits or leaves the specific place. For example, you can set geofence for school to find out when exactly does your child enter or leave the school premises.
