My Mobile Watchdog Review:

My Mobile Watchdog allows parents to access their children’s phone activity in order to help them make responsible choices online. With over 20 parental controls, you can set up boundaries for your child, receive alerts when suspicious behavior is occurring and see where your child is at all times.

Although available on Android and iPhone devices, some features do not work with iPhones and there have been complaints that children have been able to bypass certain safeguards set up by their parents.

My Mobile Watchdog’s website boasts a lot of media attention, but lacks a lot of information. The eight features listed on the dashboard include very short descriptions and provides little detail regarding which features are left out for iPhone and if jailbreaking is required.

Pros:

  • Receive alerts when your child tries to access restricted websites or contacts.
  • Over 20 different parental controls, all information in one location on dashboard.

  • Restrict phone usage through Time Block application (coming soon).

  •  KidsSafe program helps educate kids and parents about positive cyber behavior.

  • Keep track of information by printing out customized reports.

 Cons:

  • No free trial.
  • Some features not available on iPhone.
  • Users complain app blocking feature does not work properly.
  • Reviews state their kids have been able to bypass certain safeguards they have set up through the app.
  • App can be seen on any device it is installed on. Daily reminders are sent to any phones connected to dashboard.
