Setting up smart usage limit on Smartphone


Hello Conley Pamela,

Although not all Smartphones have an inbuilt parental settings, it is possible to set restrictions on your daughter’s Smartphone using apps. An example is Net Nanny 2.0 it allows you to set parental control on your child’s Smartphone, blocking away adult sites in its database and a range of malicious apps.

Most of the apps offerings parental are not free. There also alternative apps like McAfee Family Protection, eBlaster Mobile & K9 web protection.
