TeenSafe Cell Phone Monitoring Review

It seems like every teenager I see these days has a cell phone in his or her hands. I can only imagine the fear most parents have that comes with a teen having their own cell phone with access to the Internet, strangers, chat rooms, websites and more. Luckily, TeenSafe calms those fears and gives me a peace of mind.

TeenSafe is a program that allows parents to track and monitor their child’s activity on their smartphone. It is rather simple to use. Once you create your account, you can add your child along with their social media accounts. You can see their latest phone data (text messages, phone calls, web browsing, etc.). There is a free trial if you are interested in trying it out before paying for the (very useful) service.

You are required to enter your credit card information when starting the free trial.  You will automatically be billed the monthly charge for the service (currently $14.95/month) unless you cancel at least 24 hours before the end of the free trial period.  If you like the service you can add additional devices to monitor included in the monthly rate. 

Once you sign up and add your child, you are ready to start monitoring their social media activity as well as their text messages, phone calls, phone location, etc. You will need your child’s social media login information as well as their iCloud information, which is their Apple ID and password.

After you have set everything up, you will be able to see private Facebook messages, Instagram pictures, iMessages and more! I also checked out the TeenSafe Reviews before testing it out myself just to make sure others had a good experience with it, and they did! I also went ahead and added my own opinion to the TeenSafe Reviews so that others can read about my positive experience as well. If you have tried out TeenSafe, I would love to hear your experience with it!
