Why is FamiSafe the best?
FamiSafe is a high-rated application with over a million satisfied users around the world. It has a variety of unique and exclusive tools and features to offer that help you to tap your child’s device. Here they are:
● Activity Control
The ‘Activity Control’ feature provides you with a timeline view of all the apps that your child uses and for how long. You can choose a particular date and get a timeline format of what apps your child has used and what apps he has installed or uninstalled on that day.
● Smart Schedule
This scheduling feature helps to build a schedule for your child based on the time slots and locations that you choose. You can also name these schedules and repeat them on any days of the week. You can add the names of the places like school, tuition center, or home to specify what the schedule is about.
● Location History
This feature provides you a complete list of all the places that your child has visited on a particular day, along with the time when he has reached those places. To access location history, you have to tap the ‘calendar’ icon, choose a date, and select ‘location history.’
If you wish to restrict your child from entering any specific areas or localities, this feature can be of real help. All you have to do is go to the ‘Geofences’ option, search for that location, slide the bar to set the area to restrict or to put a virtual boundary, and tap ‘Save’. Whenever your child crosses that virtual fence, the app instantly notifies you so that you can quickly make a call and restrict him.
● Explicit Content Detection
This is again a very useful feature that this application provides. This function allows you to connect to various accounts of your child like WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. and monitor his text messages. The app detects any suspicious words and instantly notifies you so that you can save your child from any potential risks. You can choose which type of content you wish to tap among the three categories provided – bullying, sex, or violence.
● Suspicious Photos
This feature, provided by the FamiSafe application, allows you to monitor your child’s device’s album and notifies you whenever any violent, suspicious, or adult content is detected. This even helps to transfer any such photos to your end so that you can look into the matter and help your child be on the right track.
● YouTube App Control
The YouTube App Control feature allows you to connect with your kid’s YouTube account and provides you a complete list of all the videos that your child has watched the chosen date.
