Thinking of Buying Your Pre-Teen a Smartphone This Holiday Season? Make Sure You're Prepared With the Right Tools to Stay Aware

TeenSafe Empowers Parents With the Knowledge They Need to Parent in This Digital Age

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - TeenSafe, maker of the leading iPhone, iPad and Android monitoring software for parents, is reminding moms and dads planning on buying their teen a smartphone this holiday season to be prepared and empowered with the proper tools to help them keep a watchful eye on their child in this technologically advanced world.

"As a society, I think we are beginning to realize that some of the parental controls we currently have in place are just not enough anymore. Children are receiving phones at younger ages every year and because the technology is expanding so quickly, many parents have learned the hard way how these devices can have negative effects," said Rawdon Messenger, TeenSafe CEO. "With the new iPhone 6 breaking records with preorders this month, we are encouraging parents to set the tone by creating a TeenSafe account before giving their child their first phone. By creating an expectation from the beginning with a monitoring service, parents can prevent the negative effects before they occur while protecting their children from the doors of opportunity that open as soon as they turn the phone on for the first time."

TeenSafe gives parents the ability to see their kids' incoming, outgoing and deleted text messages, web browsing history, contacts, call logs, location and Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Kik activity through a secure, online account. The technology is the only monitoring solution that works without having to jailbreak your child's phone and is becoming known for truly helping parents become aware of what their kids are doing that they may not be talking about at home. Parents can take responsible action often before issues become crises.
