Text messaging monitoring software helps to prevent cyberbullying
TeenSafe, creator of an iPhone and Android phone monitoring software, provides parents the ability to see the text messages and social media activity being sent and received by their children to ensure they are not suffering from the harassment of cyberbullies. A recent increase of smartphone use by children as young as eight has dramatically increased the frequency of cyberbullying and other harassing behavior across all age groups. TeenSafe provides parents a virtual window into their child’s digital world by providing convenient access to all their mobile phone activities. This information can be used by parents to create dialog with their children, helping open lines of communication and stop cyberbullying. TeenSafe is very easy to set up and is the first iPhone monitoring solution that does not require any modifications to the device.
Currently, over 75 percent of teens in the US have smartphones and according to BullyingStatistics.org, half of all students admit to have been cyberbullied. Of that half, only 1 in 10 informed an adult about the incident.
“One of TeenSafe’s highest priorities is to prevent cyberbullying and the devastating effects of harassing behavior among teens. Kids today are so closely tied to their mobile devices, we feel it is more important than ever to really understand what is being said so we can help guide and teach them through these challenging situations,” said Ameeta Jain, co-founder of TeenSafe.
