How it Works PhoneSheriff

How the Filtering and Monitoring Process Works

PhoneSheriff defines the latest in mobile parental controls. This revolutionary software allows parents to easily install software to their child's compatible cell phone or tablet. Once the software is installed it gives the parent the ability to restrict, filter and monitor everything their child does with the phone or tablet. It also allows them to get instant unlimited GPS locates of their child at zero charge per track.

While you can view logs within the PhoneSheriff interface itself if you have the password, there's no need to worry about being near the device to view the activity. Activities are inserted to a private and secure account. You can login to your secure account using ANY web browser, even a computer or phone web browser. Here's a diagram to help you visualize how this process works.
