The iPhone and iPad have become ubiquitous devices in many homes with younger children and managing what they can do on them is important.
Apple provides some pretty solid parental controls, but if you’re looking for a more extensive solution, you may want to check out Intego’s Family Protector app.
It gives parents a lot more control over when and what a child uses on any iPhone or iPad, that can be remotely managed and monitored.
You can block in-app purchases, undesirable websites, disable the camera and facetime and view logs to make sure you know where they are going online.
You can also automatically lock devices during mealtimes or after bedtime to eliminate distractions.
For older kids, you can remotely lock down the device until your child checks in with you when they’re unresponsive.
You can try out the service for 14 days and if you like it, it’ll cost you $5 a month for up to 15 devices at http://www.intego.com
