    I just wanted to share this with those who might need it. Although the internet is assur there are those who sin and might have a phone or tablet with mobile browsing. Even worse are those who give such tumah to their children. Those people should be made aware of a phenomenal app called Parental Control Board, a remote app that lets you control access to any app in your child’s phone including preventing the removal or access to the app itself. it comes with a geoTracker too that can alert you if the phone leaves a defined area. And its FREE!! It also works like a charm. It logs your kids phone calls, browser activity, almost anything they do can be logged and/or blocked including phone dialer activity. You can white list or blacklist numbers. just though people should know. You know, the sinners.

    Or, you can do the following things that will allow your kids to feel like they have more privacy:

    1. Block Data

    2. Block texting

    3. Get a Kosher Phone

    4. Get a phone that is not able to have internet on it, but can have texting

    Also, I don’t think it is appropriate to refer to people who use the internet as sinners, especially because you are on the internet yourself.

    Isn’t the best answer to not use a telephone (which, after all, can connect with anyone in the world, no matter how much you would rather not talk to them), and rely on sending letters (or even better, walking over a talking to people). People got around reasonably well for years without using electronic communications. It can be said with certainty, that neither the Vilna Gaon nor the Baal Shem Tov ever used a telephone or any other device capable of being connected to the internet.

    P.S. Frankly, if you’ve done such a bad job of parenting that you can’t trust your kid to talk to anyone without your supervision, you probably have totally blown it as a parent.

    The best way to achieve parental control is to put your parents in a nursing home.

    I doubt the Gra learned by an electric light and learned by candlight. People got around reasonably well without electricity and wrote great seforim. If the Gra, Rashi, Baalei Tosafot learned without lights, so can you

    I am serious. If your kids have a smartphone you put this app on their phone. You dont need to have a smartphone yourself. The dashboard can be accessed online. Apukerama, its not about trust. You trust your kids to do their homework but you make sure they’re doing it, right? Its the old Reagan mantra, “trust, but verify”

    sounds like you are projecting… Dr. Binyamin Tepfer is an addiction specialist, google him if you have a second

    Not sure if this is a review or an infomercial. FWIW I would never install this stuff upon my phone and send private data, much less children’s private data, to some remote server which you obviously trust very much (I wouldn’t). You can set up your own VPN and your own transparent proxy, if you want to. That said, if someone gives a smartphone to a child, they either have a very good reason (which is uncommon) or they don’t.

    Only stupid parents give “smart” phones to kids. What are you thinking?!

    #917877

    My mom was very machbid on giving everyone in our family smart phones because we are very into technology and she would constantly ask us to look stuff up for her when we weren’t home, so she didn’t want to pay a fortune for us to do things she needed us to do… I think for me, it is ideal to have a smartphone that can use wifi, but no data plan because the internet addiction can get out of hand.
