10 Best Parental Control Apps

It's frightening how easy it is for children to stumble upon inappropriate content, whether they're using your phone for just a few minutes or their own device. While the latest versions of Android and iOS includes app restriction features and marketplace filtering, that's not enough for many parents. This is where parental control apps step in, allowing parents to filter out adult content, restrict app purchases, set time use limits and even monitor call, SMS and Internet activity. With GPS, you can find out just where your child is, anytime, anywhere. Here are 10 of the best parental control apps to keep your kids safe.

    You forgot to mention, in my experience, the most comprehensive one on the market today, MobileMinder (www.mobileminder.com). Great support staff also!

    How can you put Net Nanny on any list. I have a tablet for my daughter, lets call her SUE, I am the admin Barry. Net Nanny restricted the admin and let SUE do anything. Yes I did set it up correctly and after a lot of dialog with Nat Nanny I got the following unbelievable answer:-Barry,Unfortunately Net Nanny for Android does not have the capability to support multiple users on Android devices. You will need to just use 1 users settings on the device as a whole. Stephanie RuizCustomer Support RepresentativeWhat's the point!
