How Parents Can Control Their Smartphone Using Apps

Giving a kid a smartphone is a really good way to entertain them while you are busy, but parents who do so should consider protecting their kids from viewing or even purchasing content that you don’t want them to see.

To help do this, PC Magazine has put together a great list of parental control apps for Android devices that can help keep a phone safe for kids.

For example, the publication reviewed eBlaster Mobile, a $70 app that lets parents stealthily track kids’ device behavior. Check it out: “eBlaster Mobile is a decent mobile monitoring tool for keeping an eye on a young smartphone owner, but savvier users will know how to circumvent the app by turning it off or rooting their Android.”
