TeenSafe is a Great Resource for iPhone/Android Phones (with $100 Visa GC Giveaway)

If you've got a teen with an iPhone or Android Phone, then TeenSafe has got you covered! Some of you know that my husband and I do not have smart phones.  That is because we're old fogies, and don't think we need one. ;)  The teen and older kids in the family though, do have smart phones (the teen's was a gift, not from us). We recently had an issue in our home that required some backtracking of deleted texts on my teen's phone.  It wasn't anything she'd done wrong, but something that we really did need to ascertain.

If you have TeenSafe you can recover any text instantly, and at home.  In addition to locating texts (including deleted texts), the service also tracks the whereabouts of your teen's phone (great for safety reasons!), monitors call logs (if you feel you need to do that), allows for Facebook and Instagram activity to be seen, and allows you to see browser history all very easily, and all conveniently from one place.  This is a great resource to have for many, many reasons, with the location tracking being my absolute favorite feature!

Check TeenSafe out and see if it's a good fit for you!  Right now they are also offering a free 6-day trial.  AND they're offering a $100 Visa Gift Card to one lucky winner.

US/Canada entrants only.

I'm dreading having to worry about all this stuff when my boys are older!

Nicole said...

I was like you - insistant that I didn't need a smart phones since I was always home anyhow. Once I got one, I can't see how I ever lived without it. Aside from just surfing and the usual, I use it for getting discounts while shopping or dining, find educational information and more. Thanks for the TeenSafe info... we just switched to a Samsung Galaxy S5 for our daughter (we have iPhones) and lost the ability to track her. We'll have to check this out.

Sounds grand indeed, go all big brother on them haha

Tanya Runkle said...

Good idea, much easier to catch an issue fast than after it has become a big problem!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I actually think this is a great program. My oldest had some issues on no no things on our computer when she was younger. While I am certain she has learned her lesson, it never hurts to check up on them now and again (which we do lol).

Masshole Mommy said...

This sounds awesome. My oldest is almost ten and he doesn't have a cell phone as of yet, but he will before I know it.

Kristi Maloney said...

This really does sound great. James has a track phone that he can text on, but that's it. He will be 13 this Sept. I may need this service sooner than I think!!

I teach this age. I can, yet have trouble understanding when I ask a roommate where their roommate is, and they don't have a clue. Seriously they should let one another know where they are at.

My teenagers are constantly involving themselves in media-related drama. My oldest is 19 and we finally made him assume full responsibility of his own phone, meaning an assumption of liability. He holds the contract to his phone so all mistakes are his own. My 13 year old daughter just lost her phone because she kept sneaking it to school, which we forbid. I'm close to banning all media at home, it's such a hassle.

Definitely a must have for parents because sometimes it's necessary to keep track of what our kids/teens are up to especially since so many have their own phones which can lead to some issues. Awesome giveaway too!

I don't have a teen (thank goodness) but it's good to know there are products like this out there.

hi Rosey! Great to hear from you and thanks for the Easter greeting. Chemo is on tap for Friday and I am NOT excited but I know I have to do it so I am being as positive as humanly possible. I thought the surgery would be a nightmare but 4 weeks later I am doing great!
♥, Renae

I don't have a teen - but I can imagine my parents would have found this a very useful app when I was one lol x

Pam said...

This sounds like an app that could be really useful for parents of teens. You can never be too safe.

Jaredamy said...

I love that you can recover deleted texts~!! Any parent needs this kind of resource!

Curby Aardvark said...

I haven't used my phone in forever; I feel like I can't even remember the last time I actually texted someone.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I think this is a great service because adolescents definitely need additional supervision when it comes to their comings and goings with technology.

Binky said...

All the things that you didn't have to worry about a few years ago!

Maria said...

I have a 13 yr old and am looking for a new phone. Last one has died on us.

What a great idea, I have a teenager that is getting ready to drive so I will definitely be downloading this to check out for him.

Annie said...

That sounds pretty good to me! Definitely a good one for when I have kids :P

Liz Mays said...

For parents with concerns, I can see that this might be a good thing. Glad you brought it up!

Nikki said...

This is a great way to keep teens safer while using smart phones. I have a few years to go before my son needs this, but I'm already thinking ahead!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I think it is a very good idea to keep our kids as safe as possible. Sometimes our kids don't use their best judgement.

Anonymous said...

This looks great! Our kids need all the protection they can get from the crazies in this world, that's for sure!

Toni Patton said...

Hmm this is interesting, I have never heard of it before. I will have to look into it for my teen.

Erica Buteau said...

I think I am going to look into this. It looks perfect for my teens.

April Mims said...

I definitely need to check this out since I have a 16 year old who is very private about her stuff.

Amanda Her said...

I have a teen daughter and will definitely look into this. Phone providers don't monitor this level of detail.

Ave T said...

I haven't heard of this service before, but will remember it for the future! I'm sure I might need it :D

Colette S said...

With teens this is definitely needed!

We don't have smartphones either. Maybe later years. haha.
