10 Digital Parental Monitoring Tools

From Balanced Activity Apps to All-Encompassing Web Monitors

— September 28, 2015 — Tech
Modern family dynamics have changed dramatically, and with that has come an influx of digital parental monitoring tools. In response to rising concerns over children's activity online, tech companies are unveiling a series of automated solutions, including balanced activity apps and all-encompassing web monitors.

Having the ability to control and oversee Internet usage across platforms is indispensable today, especially as kids become increasingly tech-savvy. Whether in the form of tablets, smartphones or laptops, there are now numerous ways to control and survey virtual interactions.

One of the most essential features central to many of these ventures is the capacity to oversee activity remotely. Making this process instantaneous and handheld is especially appealing to younger families that are well-versed in most devices.
