Best Apps: Parental Control

It's not simply that danger is everywhere in the mobile age. It's that the internet never goes to sleep or stops demanding our attention. This is particularly challenging for kids armed with smartphones, disappearing-message apps and instant web access, who may really believe that the next text, tweet or viral video cannot wait until tomorrow. Parental-control apps for smartphones can also help kids understand the value of limits in a digital world while also preventing them from accessing adult content or texting with strangers.
