According to a recent report, the average teenager sends more than 3,000 SMS messages per month. That’s more than six text messages per waking hour. As a parent, do you know what type of messages your kids are sending? Are they sending (or receiving) in appropriate messages?
With kids sending so many messages every waking hour, how can parents monitor these messages to look for signs of abuse or involvement in prohibited activities? Up until recently, if a parent wanted to monitor these messages, their only option was to look at their children’s cell phone and hope the messages have not been deleted. If the messages were deleted, parents had no reliable way to recover those messages, and therefore there was no way to find out what their kids are involved in. spy gps tracker android
The good news is now there is NOW a way for parents to monitor their children’s text messages by using a low-cost, and highly reliable text message monitoring solution called SMS spy software.
WHAT IS SMS SPY SOFTWARE?
SMS spy software is a cell phone app that is installed directly into a cell phone that you want to monitor. Installation is done via the phone’s web browser, and once installed, the cell phone monitoring app becomes invisible to the cell phone user. As the SMS/text messages are sent or received, they are recorded and then sent to your secure online account that you set up when you purchase the monitoring software. Logs are generally sent in certain intervals (usually 10-15 minutes), but can be adjusted based on how often you want the logs updated. Once you log into your account, you’ll have access to all the messages sent/received on the phone.
This type of “spy phone software” is commonly used by suspicious spouses to read their partner’s SMS/text messages to look for signs of infidelity, or as a way for employers to maintain a log of employee to customer text message communication. However, with the recent boom of texting, parents are now rushing to purchase SMS spy software to monitor their children’s texts.
HOW CAN IT HELP PARENTS MONITOR TEXTS?
SMS spy software enables parents to monitor all incoming and outgoing text messages. Parents are able to read the entire messages, even if the messages are immediately deleted after being read. In addition to the message contents, you also get to see the time and date of when the message was sent/received, the direction of the message (incoming/outgoing), number, and the name associated to the number in their cell phone.
What makes this type of software so popular among parents, is they can access the recorded text messages from any internet connected device that has a web browser. This means parents can monitor their kids texts from home or work – with some SMS spy software having features that will alert parents when certain keywords are triggered.
