Some kids today see owning a Smartphone as a right rather than the luxury that it is! It is all well and good, but parents know that a Smartphone is much more than just a phone as they are able to access the internet when there is a wireless connection available, which can be a big worry for parents. Smartphone’s are great devices and apps make it even easier to access social media and shopping sites, which can lead to all sort of issues if the user is buying stuff online or just spending too much time social networking. It is a major cause of concern for parents, as they want to fair and firm at the same time.
It would seem that the best way would be for parents to limit the time that their kids are spending on their Smartphone’s and for those parents there is AlphaBlue! This is system that hands control back to parents by allowing them to limit the access to the device at crucial times, such as while they are school or after a certain time at night. The AlphaBlue system is easy to set up, log into the control panel and add the devices, once this step has been done then it is just a matter of putting the restrictions in place and adding some essential phone numbers that can be accessed when the restrictions are in place for emergencies etc!
The restrictions can be as wide ranging, as the parents want such as; internet access, social media, phone calls, controlling apps and app purchases. However, if the worse happens and the Smartphone is either lost or stolen, the parent can immediately activate the permanent phone wide restriction, which will effectively block access to the device.
If you like the idea of AlphaBlue then you might want to try before you buy by taking advantage of the fourteen day free trial. After that, it is going to cost you around £3 per month or £20 for a year for a limited time, after that it will be £30!
