Wonderful. A word that can describe the existence of the internet. It is like a magic wand that can make things happen, so does the internet. Through the internet, everyone can find what they want. The internet has become a space without limits for communication. The internet can also be a tool for finding information or as a place to get entertainment. Thus, the internet is a place to get everything in a short time. Various groups can use and access the internet. As said before, the internet is unlimited space. The internet does not recognize age, social class or education. The internet can be used by anyone. With the development of technology, every year the number of internet users is increasing.
While teens now have free access to all kinds of content on the Internet using their smartphones, Wondershare presents Famisafe, a reliable and customizable parental control solution that protects your child from violent websites and messages. With this tool, you can minimize negative effects that come from the use of Internet.
It’s on average 11 and half years that young people acquire their first mobile phone. An age which corresponds to entry to college, and therefore to the beginnings of adolescent emancipation. While parents have hitherto been able to rely on their children’s dependence, granting them more autonomy generates in some people fears that the smartphone seems to partially appease. Reachable at any time, and especially in the event of problems, the teenagers would benefit from a supervised freedom, watched from afar by parents anxious to see them grow – a little too quickly.
However, giving your teen a laptop raises other concerns related to the very nature of the device. Free access to the Internet, social media and instant messaging applications are, for many, synonymous with online harassment. A reality which we would like to preserve our children for as long as possible, and which makes the smartphone a double-edged sword. YouTube can even be addictive so every parent needs to know how to put parental controls on YouTube.
So here you are: torn between the desire to watch over your children from a distance and the fear of knowing that they are victims of the excesses linked to the web and digital immediacy, you give in to the smartphone and decide to redouble your vigilance. Not easy when your teen spends his days on his mobile, unapproachable private hunting, locked up in his room or on the go with his friends. It is precisely in this scenario that parental control applications come into play. With FamiSafe, Wondershare deploys its own solution, reliable, efficient and flexible, adapting to the needs of parents as well as to the profiles of children.
Ease of use and transparency
Despite a saturated competitive market, FamiSafe clearly stands out thanks to its intuitive nature. The application consists of two modules, one to be installed on the parents’ smartphone, the other to be configured on the children’s mobile. Synchronization between the two devices is automatic, allowing continuous vigilance without requiring manual checks too regularly.
Another very positive aspect: FamiSafe is not positioned as a spy, but rather as an educational security tool. With the installation of the child module on their smartphone, teens are explicitly informed of the parental supervision in progress. And to ensure full transparency, the app icon appears in the notification area while it is running. The goal is not to spy on his teenager, but to provide him with a healthy and responsible digital environment.
FamiSafe, Swiss Parental Control Knife
Beyond its maneuverability and its educational virtues, FamiSafe draws its strength from the comprehensiveness of the features it offers. The real-time geolocation module allows you to know exactly where your child finds its child at an instant t. The geo-location tool and trip history perfectly complement this option, offering each parent a precise map of their teenagers’ movements. They thus ensure their safety outside the domestic perimeter and can take immediate action when they observe an unusual detour.
In order to empower the youngest in their relationship with screens, FamiSafe allows parents to lock their teenager’s smartphone remotely. A welcome feature when using the laptop in progress, for example. More flexible and with a view to helping autonomy, the application provides the possibility of defining screen time limits. It can be to allow access to the smartphone during a certain number of hours during the day, or to block the use of it on a predefined time range. The creation of weekly routines facilitates the management of parental control while guaranteeing a reasonable use of screens.
Finally, and this is surely the most important component of the application, FamiSafe actively combats online harassment thanks to its filtering tools, capable of running YouTube Parental Controls, eliminating inappropriate results from a web search, detecting violent comments in an SMS, WhatsApp or Messenger conversation, and to detect any suspicious photos.
With the dangers that threaten internet addicts, it is important to anticipate, especially against children and adolescents. Anticipation can be done with discipline in using gadgets and limit the time of their use. In this case the need for supervision from parents. In addition, there is a need for information about the effects that can occur if the internet is addicted, so that children and adolescents can be more aware of the activities carried out on the internet. Another alternative is to divert attention to activities or activities that are outdoors, such as soccer, dancing and drawing.
The internet is two sides of a coin. On the one hand it is very helpful to humans and on the other hand, it can plunge humans. Wisdom is needed in using the Internet and in many cases; special tools for this are needed. Hopefully this article can make you aware of the dangers of the Internet and how to minimize the negative effects it causes. Thank you for reading!
