Being a parent can be extremely worrying, but Avast Family Space is on hand to help make things a little easier and to bring some peace of mind. With this app installed, you can let your child have their own smartphone without fear of them accessing online content you'd rather they didn't see. As an added bonus, the software also lets you keep tabs on your child so you can check on their whereabouts.
There are various aspects to Avast Family Space, the first of which is online control. Using the app, it is possible to put content filters in place to limit what your child is able to access. In addition to filters to block content by type (such as violence, social media, and so on), you also have the option of blocking specific sites manually.
But the app goes beyond simply blocking access to the content you specify. You may also have concerns about how long your child is using their phone for, so it gives you the ability to put time limits in place. These can be used in a variety of ways to either stop your child from exceeding a certain number of hours of screen time per day, or to stop their phone from being used at times you specify – such as throughout the night.
While internet and other restrictions are at the heart of Avast Family Space, it is not the end of the story. You may well be concerned about what your child is using their phone for, but their chances are that they have it with them at all times. You can take advantage of this fact, using the app to track their location so you can ensure that they are where they should be.
It is also possible to configure alerts so you will be notified if your child leaves a particular. This can be useful not only for knowing when they have left, for instance school so you have an idea of when you can expect them home, it's also a great way to learn if your child visits an unexpected place. Another handy feature is the ability to remotely monitor the battery status of your child's phone. You obviously want your child to be contactable, so receiving notification that their battery is running low gives you the opportunity to tell them to find a charger, but if this is not possible it at least lets you know why your child is not answering calls or messages.
Avast Family Space may not completely eliminate the worry and stress associated with being a parent, but it can help a lot. Whether you're looking to introduce younger children to technology and don't want to have to worry about what they might encounter online, or you're looking to give slightly older kids a taste of freedom, the app can be a great help.
