I just discovered an amazing app for parental control on social media. GENIUS!!! Well, that's how I feel about it. It's a program called FamilyControls, by Loytr Inc. FamilyControls gives parents the ability to allow their children to explore the internet and social media, but with the ability to filter inappropriate language, turn off the child's ability to share pictures, videos, and/or status updates on social media and much more in an easy to use program.
I get excited about this because I am always on the go and find it impossible to try and go through my children's iPad’s and navigate the paltry controls that are available. Now I will take comfort knowing that I can access and implement controls for the different age levels of my children, and feel confident that they are using the internet more safely. And if a problem does arise, I'll be able to help them cope by getting a heads up before they know I know! (I did say GENIUS didn’t I?) Knowing information that a child has yet to deliver is an awesome tactic for moms on the go. I always joke I'm psychic and know everything I need to regarding them anyway!
FamilyControls launches December 12th in the Apple on-line store for a limited time promotional price of $4.99 . https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/parental-controls-for-facebook/id763827414?mt=8
