WebSafety is the only 100%-mobile solution for parents wanting to monitor time, location, apps, social media, SMS, and web browsing usage of their children on mobile devices. No browser, No personal computer, No cables.
Time management allows parents to create daily curfew schedules for each child in addition to immediate, remote shutdown of the device. Parents can establish time restrictions when the child can use their mobile devices. If the child tries to use the device during restricted times, the parent will be notified immediately.
Location management allows parents to view current and past locations of their child’s device with breadcrumbs of their tracks. Geo-fences can be defined around common places with notifications to parents when the child enters or leaves the area.
App management shows parents all the apps installed and uninstalled on a child’s device. Using our list of Apps of Concern, alerts will be sent to parents when a child installs an App on our list. WebSafety provides detailed descriptions of the leading applications on your child’s device and why you should or should not be concerned.
Social Media Monitoring allows parents to view all photos uploaded to your child’s Instagram and Facebook accounts along with Likes and Comments. Comments are reviewed for cyberbullying and other words of concern.
SMS Monitoring allows parents to view the SMS messages sent and received by their child’s device. Most frequent contacts are displayed to have insight into new friends that may be part of your child’s life. Alerts are sent when cyberbullying or other words of concern are used while texting.
Website Monitoring allows parents to receive alerts when inappropriate websites are visited. WebSafety manages a list of bad websites which a parent can modify by adding new sites or whitelisting sites that are approved within the family.
Mobile Dashboard is the focal point for the parent within the WebSafety app. Scroll through the log of reported events from all monitored activities. The Dashboard is your eyes and ears as a parent to have informed conversations about appropriate use of mobile devices and social media.
Mobile notifications provide parents with native iOS notifications regarding important events such as a child leaving a specific location, an installed app of concern or a social media posting with words of concern. E-mail summaries are sent on a daily or weekly basis to the parent as well.
WebSafety’s vision is to provide an open window through which concerned parents can monitor questionable and potentially harmful content or a direct predatory exchange occurring on their child’s mobile device.

Ratings and Reviews
What A Life Changer. Thank You WebSafety
While I had always been against monitoring your child there are just some things that can wait especially for children at the most critical age. I agree there needs to be a balance to the free parents of the past and the helicopter parents of now but what web safety provides is piece of mind. Knowing is better than not knowing. As parents we never know how old our child is getting and protecting them is just our duty as their guardians and guides of a very complicated society with many wrong paths that one could take if influenced in the wrong way.
I as well as my partner salute the WebSafety team for their support and monitoring capabilities. I feel more informed and safer everyday.
Features not updating
My son’s location, his social media usage and all of his features or not updating on my end. The only thing that update was everything that populate it when I first signed up for the services yesterday however nothing has been updated ever cents and it looks like he’s not using his phone at all but I am doing things on his phone to confirm that the services are working and they are not. I hate that I had to put my credit card information and in order for me to get the free trial but I know that I can cancel because the services are not working right. I really hoped that this would’ve been a good service but so far it is not being good for us because it’s not working at all it’s not updating any information.
Great commercial and delivery but awful service!
Great concept- I wish it worked
Saw the advertisement for this app in the movie theater and it looked AMAZING! However, after downloading the app, setting up and account and then proceeding to log into the app, I get the following message: " an error has occurred. Please try again."
So I did. Again and again. I then completely closed out the app and tried a third time with no success. Same message shows up on my wife's phone when I try logging in.
Please fix. Otherwise, this app will always have 1 or 2 stars simply for the idea. Not 5 unless it works!
