Itâs the duty of a watchful parent to keep their kids safe using any aid and any factor. This also justifies parents deploying a cell phone spy software in the smartphones of their children. Once the spyware has been installed on the target cell phone, it effectively starts recording and uploading the information to the servers, from whereon the users can get the information easily by logging into their user account area. Spying a cell phone includes the following general activities :-
- Contacts details.
- All the calls made and received by the target cell phone.
- Complete location details of the mobile phone.
- All Sent and received mode of communication such as Email, IMâs, SMSâs etc.
- Entire web browsing history.
When used properly the cell phone spying software can be a great leverage, and can provide a great detail of information to the worried parents. The software can give all the detailed information regarding the cell phone activities of the children, but sometimes the information fetched can be quite wide, and can waste a considerable amount of time of the parents. Therefore its necessary to understand and know how the software can be used to its optimum.
To avoid wastage of time, its important for you as a parent to narrow down the tracking requirements, for instance you should be monitoring their Calls-Contacts, SMSâs (or IMâs) and GPS Location instead of other tracking features. Even if you spend a fortune on a spyware for mobile monitoring, its easy if you track only the needed stuff. Lets have a look at what you should spy in your Childâs smartphone :-
Monitor Call And Contacts :
Any parent would want to ensure that their child isnât in the bad company, so obviously you should be monitoring their calls and contact list to find out if anything is suspicious. This way even you would be aware of the people your kids are in contact with, and you wonât have to go through their contacts list personally.
View The IMâs And SMSâs :
Go through the chats and conversations taking place via Texts and Instant messengers. This is however time wasting, but since the kids prefer using instant messaging applications more, therefore monitoring these is worth.
Listen To Their Calls :
Listening to calls might be an interesting feature, however, again it would be time consuming to listen to your kid blabbering on the phone for so many hours. Filter down the unwanted time wastage by listening to the calls only made by specific numbers, the filtering will eventually help you to sort out and point to the preferences.
See Their GPS Location :
Now since the children, especially the teenagers are more of an adventurer/wanderer type, you canât be strict with them to reveal their secret hangouts or lets just say you canât always query them about their whereabouts. Therefore, itâll be wise to deploy a GPS location monitoring software to keep a tab on their visited places. But again, donât cross check them about each and every visited place, instead mark the safe and unsafe boundaries in the application interface, so that you get notified whenever your ward enters or leaves those marked premises.
As a parent you have every right to make sure that your kids are in safe hands, and not involved in something suspicious to raise questions. Hence its wise to pre install a cell phone spying software onto their smartphones and stay updated with them.
