Being a parent in the digital age is an incredibly difficult challenge. Giving your child a mobile device means trusting that they’ll make the right decisions and be smart with it.

Created by Familoop, this is an app that’s worth checking out if you’re concerned parent who wants to make sure your child is using their device wisely.
Concept and Functionality
Before mobile devices existed on such an accessible level, parents were able to monitor their child’s Internet activity simply by watching over their shoulder while they used the computer. These days are long gone and parents need a better way to monitor activity without being right next to their child.
Familoop Parental Control is designed to be installed on a child’s device, meaning that you have to have access to it in order to add the device to your account. Once the app is installed, you can control various features such as a web blocker, safe search, and activity tracking.
Setting up Familoop Parental Control is a breeze, and parents shouldn’t experience any problems with getting it installed on their child’s device.
There are a number of settings that have to be manually enabled for them to work, such as support for Google Chrome’s incognito mode.
Familoop Parental Control includes a number of features that parents will find useful. This includes contact monitoring, photo tracking, and location tracking.
Parents can even view and limit the amount of time that their child uses their Android device. This is definitely handy for making sure that your child is using their device in moderation.
Familoop Parental Control is available to download from Google Play for free, but the service requires a subscription once the trial period is over.
The trial period lasts for 10 days which should be long enough to decide if this app is for you.
After that parents have the option of protecting up to three devices for $4.99 per month or for $39.99 per year. The 10 device plan is available for $9.99 per month or $69.99 per year.
Overall, Familoop Parental Control is a great app to try if you wanted easy way to monitor your child’s activity on their mobile device.
One drawback is that you have to jump through extensive hoops in order to deactivate and remove the app from your child’s device, but there’s a good reason for this. It’s so your child can’t easily remove the app on their own.
Familoop Parental Control requires Android 4.2 and up.
