If you ask your kids which mp3 player they would like to have, most of them will surely choose the iPod Touch. What makes it so popular, you may wonder? The iPod Touch is almost the same as the iPhone, though calls and SMS are not supported. Everyone wants to have the iPhone, doesn’t it?
Like any other Apple device, the iPod lets users access the Internet and utilize its benefits to the fullest. Thus, children can chat on instant messengers, shoot, share, and like photos on social media, and play games online. The Internet is dangerous for kids for so many reasons. That’s why careful parents should know how to apply iPod parental controls.
The iOS includes built-in adjustable options that allow setting parental control on iPod Touch without any additional software required. Go to Settings and proceed to General. There, you can turn on Restrictions and specify applications kids are allowed to use and content to see, settings to protect their privacy, changes they can perform manually, and games to play. These options are not as flexible as provided by Pumpic and lack remote monitoring of online activities. But still better than nothing.
Parental Control App
Pumpic parental control app for iPod Touch provides comprehensive opportunities for child protection. Installed on your kids’ device it lets you track location, follow social network activities on Facebook and Instagram, as well as online chats like Snapchat, Viber, WhatsApp Skype, and Kik.

Risks related to the use of the iPod as well as other mobile devices do exist and pose potential danger to children of all ages. Being engaged in online activities day and night, kids not often realize real consequences of irresponsible behavior on the web.

As a parent, you should take the situation under your personal control and keep your eyes open widely.

“My daughter keeps messaging on her iPod all the time. After reading some articles on parenting web sources, I found out how dangerous social media can be for children of her age. That’s why I decided to apply parental monitoring for text messages on her iPod. Pumpic looked like a sound solution. I installed it and was quite satisfied with the result. All her messaging history is clearly visible to me now.”
“My son likes his iPod Touch very much. I think it’s the best gift I’ve ever presented to him. He likes it so much that goes to bed and wakes up with it in hands. It makes me worry a little. I know there’s such a fever in kids, when they keep playing and browsing and can’t stop. I’m afraid it might turn into addiction or he might face a kind of danger online. I decided to use parental control and set iPod time limit on his activities. Finally I can control the time he spends on his favorite device.”
“I was looking for iPod Touch parental controls for YouTube. My son used to waste to much of time watching videos. I needed to limit this time wasted somehow. A friend of mine recommended Pumpic. The app lets me block the YouTube application permanently or set time limits on its running. There are so many useful options in Pumpic that I can keep complete control of my kid’s iPod from anywhere I go. And what is most important, it tracks location and allows setting geo-fences, which I consider a must for child safety.”
