|ParentsWare: Intent on keeping kids safe|
No matter how hard we try to protect the children in our lives, they will never be safe enough from online predators unless we are proactive! Ourpact is a new app that is available for download on iOS devices, and it is the perfect way to keep our kids safe and monitor what they are doing on their tablet or phone.
Ourpact is simple to use and only takes a few minutes to download and set up. All you need to do is download it on to your device and create an account. After you have submitted your username, password and email address (for confirmation and communication purposes), you will see a screen with a new URL on it. Grab your child’s device (either phone or tablet) and type that URL into the browser of their internet and download the app! Once it is downloaded, you can go back to your device and pair the two devices and apps so you have full parental control.
With Ourpact, you can block certain apps, certain websites and schedule usage time for your child’s device. If you want to block an app indefinitely, you can use the “manual block” feature. Once you block an app manually, it immediately takes effect. If you would like to schedule a block time so they can only use the app during a particular time of the day, you can use the “schedule block” feature. This ensures that you are able to monitor them while they use that app. This is useful for those of you who hang out on the couch with your kids while you are both on devices.
You can block internet sites with this app. One of the biggest categories of blocked sites is usually social media, depending on the age of your child. Social media opens up doors that should probably remain closed until your child is old enough to distinguish between inappropriate and appropriate, under your judgment.
You can also schedule usage time so that your child will not be on their device after bedtime or in the middle of the night. Whatever schedule you choose for them, you can set up on their device using the main app on yours!
If you are interested in downloading this app for yourself and your family, you can find it here in the iTunes app store. You should also visit ParentsWare’s website for more information on this app if you have any additional questions! I highly recommend this app to all of my readers looking for added security!
