5 Weird (and Scary) Things You Might Find When Using Parental Spyware

Posted on

Did you know that 60% of parents have checked their teenager’s browsing history and social media sites?

Another 48% admit to checking the text messages and call history on their kids’ cell phones.

What do you think? Should parents monitor cell phones? Is tracking your kids’ activity an invasion of privacy–or a way of protecting them?

The truth is that you might find more than just some strange YouTube videos. Here are 5 compelling reasons to consider using parental spyware.

1. Cyberbullying

Most cases of cyberbullying are never reported. That’s probably because most parents don’t know it’s happening.

Cyberbullying is sadly becoming more common on social media sites and other chat platforms. The effects can be disastrous, ranging from decreased self-esteem to suicide.

By installing parental control software on your child’s phone, you’ll be the first to know if they’re being bullied.

2. Sexting

Sexting involves sending lewd photos via text messages.

Some kids view this as harmless fun. But as a parent, you likely feel otherwise. In addition to immediate dangers, “sexted” images could come back to haunt your kids down the road.

If you decide to start tracking smartphones, this could be one of the worst discoveries you make. It will also be challenging to confront your child about what you know–but your efforts will be worth it.
