How would you feel, if your phone is constantly sending your parent's a message regarding, where you are, what you're eating, when are you speeding, what are you reading, bunkcing classes etc.???

There was a time when parents, wary of their kid's activities had no option, but to personally spy on them to avoid revealing their child's misdemeanor to others.

With the advent of smartphones, world has drastically changed!

Now parent's have innumerable options to keep a tab on their wards and the best part (according to parents) is that if they catch their child engaged in a wrongdoing, they would still be the one having control in their hands.

We are going to share a few useful apps (from parent's perspective) which can help worrying parents in tracking their child's movement and ensuring their safety (P.S messing our life):

It even prevents children from using phones at night, & through the GPS their movements can also be tracked.

Unlike other free apps this is a paid service available for IOS and android phones.








This is a total spy app, where you can easily get the data related to your child's phonecalls, the websites they visit, their location and all of their text messages via. a web dashboard.

This one is also a paid service available on IOS and Android phones.






Mama Bear
