Currently, on Cocktail Talk - Tragedy Plus Time
cell phone monitoring software came onto my radar and seemed like a
pretty clean and easy Cocktail Talk.
it is not.
is a soft-ware that let's you monitor the text messages, even the
deleted ones, call logs, browser history, instagram messages, and
location of your teen's phone.
works on all the popular phones, let's use Apple as an example.
you have an iPhone or iPad you have an Apple ID. It is used
to download apps, buy music, rent videos and backup you device to
the Apple ID associated with the iPhone, or iPad, you want to
monitor and they set up a link to the iCloud backup. They extract
information from the backup and format it nice and neat for you to
access from their secure website.
no software on the iPhone being monitored, all that's required is
that backup be turned on. Already there's a way around
it. That's where the problem started. Looking for other ways
around it made things worse.
away there's a young girl posting up that her parents are
monitoring her every move using TeenSafe
and what can she do? I was prepared for instructions on how to turn
off backup, a hack, a link to a website, even brutal teenage
ranting and sarcasm. What happened scared me.
first response was from a woman telling the girl how to resolve the
issue with her parents. It was very long. Therapist and counselor
talk about right's, respect, relationships and trust.
next person to respond asked the girl if her parents didn't trust
her. She said they were upset about her smoking marijuana and
sneaking out of the house to see boys.
blood in the water a lot of people had advice, none of it
pertaining to TeenSafe Nobody
told her to turn off backup, but they did tell her to do a lot of
other things. That's what scared me most.
I won't be comparing, explaining, or recommending any products like
Teenagers, Predators,TeenSafe, or not, that's your call, and that's
