Some tips and tools parents can use to stay aware and prevent potentially risky app use.
1. Make a family app store account
Whether you’re an iOS or Android family, using a single account to purchase and download apps is a great way to see when new applications have been installed on devices. Protecting the account(s) with a password only the parents know further protects apps being downloaded without your permission.
2. Setup photo sharing
Apple and Google both have applications and built-in functionality to share photographs to a group when they are taken.
3. Parental Monitoring & Control Apps
As mentioned above, apps like Net Nanny can allow parents to directly control what apps are installed, website filtering, and other features (screen time limits, usage hours, etc). Here are a list of popular apps: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-parental-control-apps,review-2258.html
