Parental controls also known as parental restrictions were designed especially for parents, who want to control their children’s cell phone activity remotely. To set parental controls on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you need to go to Settings of a phone and lock several features including an access to Safari, camera, iTunes etc.

In order to avoid online dangers like cyberbullying, online predators and 18+ content, one can use parental controls. But can you set parental controls on iPhone remotely? To set parental control you will need to download and install an app. After a quick installation you will have an opportunity to track your child’s iPhone remotely through your PC or a personal cell phone.

Parents use such control to protect and secure children. It is obvious that the Internet contains a lot of information that it is more likely that there is information our children are not supposed to see before they reach at least 18 years.

The features that come from parental controls on an iPhone include:

  • SMS monitoring (incoming, outgoing and deleted ones);
  • Call monitoring (number and duration);
  • GPS tracking (real time location and route history);
  • Contact list and scheduled events monitoring;
  • Keylogger usage;
  • Social media monitoring (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.);
  • Internet browsing (bookmarks, adult sites);
  • 18+ websites blocking (remotely block sites according to your preferences).

Before you set parental controls on an iPhone, you should think of those features that interest you the most. Maybe you want to use it to protect your child from cyberbullying by monitoring his/her social media or maybe you need it to see if your child got home safe by using GPS location tracking. All these things may be summed up or divided according to your preferences. All you need to do to set parental controls on iPhone is to have 3-5 minutes physical access to the target phone.
