03/05/18: Regrettably Retina-X Studios, which offers cutting edge technology that helps parents and employers gather important information on devices they own, has been the victim of sophisticated and repeated illegal hackings. Over the past year, Retina-X Studios has begun to implement steps designed to enhance our security measures which had the positive outcome of restricting data obtained by the hackers in the most recent intrusion. No personal data was accessed, but some photographic material of TeenShield and PhoneSheriff customers has been exposed. As a result, and to protect our valued customers, Retina-X Studios is immediately and indefinitely halting its PhoneSheriff, TeenShield, SniperSpy and Mobile Spy products. We will be offering pro-rated refunds to any customers who currently have a contract with Retina-X Studios for these services. If you are an active subscriber of any of these services, you will receive an email from us with information about how to obtain a pro-rated refund and access to your data during this process.

Retina-X Studios is sharing information about the illegal hackings and cooperating with the appropriate authorities. The perpetrators of these illegal acts have been motivated by their unfounded opposition to the private activities of parents and employers on devices they own and with the consent of users of the devices. The perpetrators, who will likely never be identified or brought to justice, have shared their actions with online publications to gain attention. They are cowards who work in the dark and use the media to promote their agenda. Retina-X apologizes to our customers for any inconvenience this situation has caused, but our first priority is to you. We appreciate the loyalty you have shown our company and these valuable services.

What is PhoneSheriff Parental Control Software?

What does your child do on the mobile device you have provided them? Worried they're abusing their phone or tablet privileges? PhoneSheriff allows you to monitor actions and filter out those you don't want. You can even create a schedule for allowed usage.

PhoneSheriff is the next generation of parental control software for mobile phones and tablets. Do you need the ability to filter, block and monitor how your child uses your mobile device? If yes, then this software is ideal for you. Install this small program onto the device your child uses to begin monitoring.

After you install the password-protected software, it blocks the activities you specify and creates logs of every action your child performs. You have the option of showing your child a device notification and a tamper-proof icon to notify them that they are being monitored. This option can be turned off.

Using the Internet capabilities of your phone or tablet, the monitored activities and GPS locations are quickly inserted to your PhoneSheriff account. To view the results you simply login to your secure account at the PhoneSheriff web site. Logs are displayed by categories and sorted for easy browsing.

Why would I need this parental control software?

If you are worried that your children are using your phones and tablets inappropriately, then PhoneSheriff is just for you. SMS (text messaging) has become a popular way for people to connect. Are your kids spending too much time on the phone or tablet ? Are they talking to people you don't allow? Are they involved with Sexting? What are they texting about? You have the right to know.

I truly believe this program saved my teenager from continuing down a bad path. It allowed me to see text and and other information to find the bad influences and separate my child from them. LARRY
I love this program it is working great and helping me monitor all the text messages from the monitored phone. I am trying to prevent pornography from getting to my child's phone. MIKE
Our daughter stole our truck, bank cards, credit cards and the phone. The only way to find her was by tracking the SMS with your software. The police were able to catch her with the messages. ADAM
That far exceeds what I would consider good product support! You can count on my support and references on your other products, which by the way, are more stable and work better than those of your competitors. ROBERT

Install this easy program to your child's phone or tablet to view and block disallowed activity. You can even access the logs from any location by logging into the secure site from any computer, tablet or phone Internet web browser.
