  • Is it really necessary to monitor my child Cell Phone?
    Yes, not only is it necessary, it’s your job. Studies have repeatedly shown that children and teens are consciously and unconsciously engaging in dangerous behavior online, and the vast majority does not tell their parents. Polls of parents and children reveal a grave disconnect between parent perceptions of their children’s activities, and what the children are actually doing. Cell Phone monitoring software is the best defensive tools against identity theft, online predators, harassment and cyber bullying, pornography and violent content, and much more. Our products allow you to know what your children are doing online, obtain their passwords, track their location, see their web searches, know who they are talking to, and what is being said in emails, IMs, SnapChat, Facebook, Instagram, Viber, Skype, photos and videos sent and received, Chat rooms, and other social media sites.
  • Should I tell my family that I’ve installed monitoring software?
    Some parents do, some parents don’t, and both choices are completely valid. Informing your children that their activities are being monitored is often a useful form of protection in itself. However, many of our monitoring products are capable of running secretly, in stealth mode, so your child will never know their digital activities are being monitored.
  • I’m ready to buy, but I keep winding up on someone else’s site. Why?
    GuardChild is an affiliate partner of the software publishers, which allows us to offer incredible products to you at a steep savings. When you decided to purchase, and click the “Buy Now” button, you will be redirected to the publisher’s site to purchase the software. You will need to return to GuardChild’s site in order to sign up for membership in our Community, to access benefits if you are already a member or to use other features on our website.

However, most of the Apps are not native (on the cell phone when purchased) Apps and make it difficult for developers to access them for monitoring.  However, some of our products will give to access to many popular Apps such as WhatsApp, Viber, LINE, and others will require you to Jailbreak the iPhone. Once the mobile phone is jailbroken you will have the ability to monitor many of the popular Apps used by tweens and teens.
