Mobile Guardian's safe browser, mobile timetable and location services help parents keep their kids safe on their mobile devices. Even if your child doesn’t have their own iPhone, iPad or iTouch yet, you should install Mobile Guardian on your own device if your child borrows it, for extra peace of mind.
Mobile Guardian's safe browser offers web filtering to prevent kids encountering inappropriate and distressing web content such as pornography, violence, hate speech or other adult themed content. Filter web content by categories, blacklists and whitelist; plus safe search ensures search results are OK for kids. Mobile Guardian will block inappropriate web traffic and you’ll send you an alert by text or email. Mobile Guardian logs which sites your kids are visiting so you can learn about how they are using the internet.
The timetable for the web browser allows you to limit your child’s web use of the iPhone, iPad or iTouch to ensure they don’t stay up all night online, have a technology break before going to bed, or use the device inappropriately – like at school or church. Exceptions can be set – we call these VIP sites – to allow your child to access school-approved sites in the classroom.
Location services allow you to locate your child or a missing device and also gives you a historical overview of where your child has been.
Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
The Mobile Guardian service works over mobile data connections, home wifi and public wifi to ensure your child is always safe from harm and dangerous content.
An online dashboard allows you to manage all your Mobile Guardian protected devices from a single location. Mobile Guardian's timetable does not control Application usage.
The Mobile Guardian service has little impact on battery life or data consumption and won’t interfere with the running of the device.
