Restrict Child Cell Phone or Tablet Usage

Everywhere you look you see teenagers and even children texting or talking on their cell phones and tablets. While this necessary technology has proven to have many benefits, it has some potential downfalls. When a child has their own dedicated phone or tablet, they might start to abuse it, which can affect their schoolwork. Many parents find that their children start talking at all hours of the night or even during school.

PhoneSheriff allows you to solve this problem by blocking certain functions of the phone or tablet at certain times of each day. For example you can tell the software to lock the phone or tablet every night at 8:00 pm until 8:00 am or whatever hours you choose. On smartphones you can choose to lock the entire phone or you can lock just the ability to make calls while the other functions of the phone remain operable.

block numbers on smartphone

Block Specific Phone Numbers from Contacting

While your child's phone might be a necessity, it can also become an addictive way to connect with the outside world. Text messaging has become the next new craze among young people worldwide. Some teens send as many as 25 text messages every few hours. And let's not forget the standard favorite of gabbing on the phone for hours on end. Usually these types of activities are innocent enough, however they have a potential to become dangerous.

If you need to block your child from contacting with specific phone numbers, then PhoneSheriff allows you to do just that. You can choose to block SMS text messages, phone calls or both for any number. In addition to blocking, PhoneSheriff also logs all text messages and information about each call. This will give you more information about which numbers might need to be blocked. You can add and remove blocked numbers and restrictions anytime.

GPS location of child

Track Your Child via GPS

Does your child skip school? Previously there was no way to monitor a child's whereabouts without installing some sort of GPS tracking device in their car. This is no longer necessary with the latest smartphones and tablets which have a GPS receiver built inside. The GPS inside smart cell phones and tablets work exactly the same as your car's GPS. It can show you a location anytime.

With PhoneSheriff, you can utilize the GPS receiver in your teen's smartphone or tablet to act as a GPS tracker. When PhoneSheriff is running it monitors GPS positions every thirty minutes. You can also get INSTANT tracks with no fees by sending an SMS message to your child's phone. The monitored phone will not show anything on the screen. You will get a reply message stating the coordinates at that specific time which can be very useful.

text message monitoring

Monitor SMS Text Messages and Call Information

Today's computer-savvy teenager has all the dangers of the Internet at their fingertips. But another danger is in the form of text messaging. A popular trend among today's teenagers is called sexting. Sexting is text messages of a sexual nature. According to a national survey by The National Campaign, 48% of teenagers have received a sext message. But how can a parent know if their teen is sexting or worse? Now there's an easy way to protect your child.

PhoneSheriff allows you to fully monitor the activities of your child's cell phone. It makes full logs of every text message sent and received, and logs vital information about each phone call. The logs do not rely on the phone's internal logging system, so if your child deletes their logs it won't matter. You can still view every single text message and call within the PhoneSheriff interface on the phone OR in a secure online account.
