And what they are saying to each other. * Control who your child contacts, who contacts them, time and money spent, information sent and received. * Locate where the child is, or even a missing or stolen phone. And delete private info from a missing or stolen phone. * Receive alerts about inappropriate content; cyber-bullying; sexting; predatory activity; spending too much time or money online. * Parents can also safeguard their own phones.
