Parental Controls for Smart Phones

If your kids have their own mobile devices, you may want a way to track and control what they’re doing. The best parental control apps offer ways to limit time spent on the device, track usage and location, and block apps or games. Before we delve into the options, it’s worth noting that there are some free parental controls built in to most devices nowadays, so you may not need to spring for a third-party app at all. For example, Google’s Family Link is very handy, Amazon’s parental controls are excellent, and Apple offers some parental controls.
