One method for parents to monitor their children’s text messages is the service TeenSafe. The site allows parents to monitor text messages, phone logs, social media postings and other phone activity.
TeenSafe allows parents to remotely monitor their children’s phone activity via an external app or on the TeenSafe site. Parents don’t need to set anything up on kids’ phones to use the service; all that’s required is a child’s basic login information for either iPhone or Android. Using the service, parents can monitor calls and text messages, including deleted texts. TeenSafe can also monitor browser history and postings on social media platforms such as Instagram or Facebook. The service can also use GPS to show kids’ current locations.
