How to set Geofencing zones: Step by step guide

Parents most of the times get worried about the whereabouts of their children. Constantly calling their children’s phone to know where they are. Parenting has become a bit involved in this technological era and parents need all the help they can get to keep their kids safe. That is why the Geofencing feature of the mSpy is recommended for all parents.

What is Geofencing

Many of us use the global positioning system (GPS) in our cars, phones and other devices to maneuver our ways to places we are not familiar with or check up the address of a place we intend to go. This technology has been expanded upon in the concept of pinpointing a location and setting up a virtual area or boundary around the point of location. This technology is what is called Geofencing.

With this parents can create invisible zones on their kids’ devices and get alerted via a text message or email when their kids’ devices leave or enter these zones.

Geofencing is a technology that is vastly used in many spheres of life from marketing to the herding of sheep or cattle. Geofencing is a valuable tool for parents in tracking the whereabouts of their children.

Why do parents need a Geofencing feature?

Having the Geofencing feature set on your child’s device allows you to set boundaries in school, playground or grandma’s house. You can set an alert that will be triggered if your kid leaves or enters any of these marked zones. This will give you the assurance that your child is safe at home or school.

Mark dangerous zones

Kids can sometimes get into some questionable friendships that make them hang out at places you deem inappropriate and dangerous parents do not approve. Because they want to fit in with these friends, they may lie to you about where they have been. With the Geofencing feature all parents need to do is to set designated zones they feel their kids are hanging out there is dangerous or forbidden. When these zones are entered an alert will be sent to parents notifying them their children have entered these marked zones.

Monitoring Kids who drive

This feature is a must-have for parents of teens who already have drivers licenses. Most parents have zones they do not want their children driving through or to. With the Geofencing feature, parents will be able to set no drive through areas and get alerted anytime their teenagers enters the zone.
