Kytephone brings its popular parental control features to a new Android compatible app of the same name.
With smartphone and tablet users getting younger and younger, new apps can help parents of 13-to-17-year-olds monitor and control their children’s use of the Internet. Recent studies show that more than one-third of American teenagers own a smartphone, up from more than a fifth in 2011. For nearly half of these users, the phone is their main way of getting online, making it difficult for parents to supervise behavior.
The trend has even seen a spike in younger users from app and internet use through their parent’s tablet and smartphone devices. With a smartphone, your kid basically has the Internet in their pocket wherever and whenever – away from a parents’ eyes.
