When access to the Internet first came about, it was easy for a parent to keep an eye on their child’s online activity because there would typically be only one computer in the home. This computer would be in a place that was accessible to the entire family, so it would have been difficult for a child to hide their online activity from their parents.
However, along came smart phones and tablet computers, and all of a sudden, children were able to access the internet, not only in their own rooms, but also outside of the home as well. This ease of access to the internet is one of the advantages of wireless and mobile technology, however, with this ease of access comes the dangers associated with internet use.
The main problem with the Internet is the fact that it is used by a number of predators and criminals, and it is very easy for your child to become a victim. In the past it was the dangers of talking to strangers in the street or at the local park that our parents warned us about, however, the danger posed by strangers is now just as likely to be found sitting at a computer across the other side of town, or even the other side of the world, than standing outside the local store.
Criminals and in particular, sexual predators often pose as children themselves in order to befriend other children online, and it is because of this that you need to make sure that your child or children are safe when using the internet via their phone or tablet. These predators have found it so much easier to connect with children thanks to the plethora of messaging and social networking sites, such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Twitter. It is ironic that when cell phones were first introduced, a lot of parents equipped their children with them in order to give them a means of communicating their whereabouts, or to alert someone if they were in trouble. However, these phones are now so advanced that they could be the very thing that puts them in a dangerous situation in the first place.
So, how do you keep your child safe when it is so easy for them to communicate with strangers via their internet enabled smart phones? The one solution to this problem is to download a cell phone spying app, such as the one offered by mSpy. This app will allow you to access all of the information you need regarding your child’s smart phone or tablet usage. Just by logging into your account on the mSpy website, you will be able to see text messages, emails, web history, chats made via messaging apps such as BlackBerry messenger or WhatsApp, plus any photos and videos that have been sent or downloaded. Prevent your children from online dangers!
