SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TeenSafe, the number-one iPhone, Android and tablet monitoring service for parents announces its commitment to supporting National Bullying Prevention Month through empowering parents to keep their children from becoming victims of cyberbullying. With the increased cases of cyberbullying, there has been a rise in awareness for parents needing to adopt digital monitoring as a part of their parental responsibilities. With over 1.6 million parents now signed up with TeenSafe, the company continues to empower parents to be aware of what their children are doing online, opening lines of communication within families to ultimately prevent cyberbullying.
TeenSafe gives parents a window into their children's digital world to ensure they are not being attacked by cyberbullies. TeenSafe is currently the ONLY solution that offers monitoring for iOS9 device and is the only solution that has the ability to show parents deleted texts on both iOS and Android. The technology was developed by parents for parents as a way to watch over their children's digital activity through an easy-to-use online portal.
"Cyberbullying can be a difficult topic for teens to discuss with their parents. In fact, only one in ten children will tell an adult if it occurs. It is our parental responsibility to protect them from the terrible harm bullies can cause via online channels," said Rawdon Messenger, TeenSafe CEO. "If we are not aware of the dangers they face, how can we help them?"
As highlighted in the recent CNN study, #Being13, because a child's self-worth is often closely connected to their digital interactions, they are more psychologically affected by online conflict than many parents understand. In the study, "Almost all parents -- 94% -- underestimated the amount of fighting happening over social media. Despite that finding, parents that tried to keep a close eye on their child's social media accounts had a profound effect on their child's psychological well-being."
"So many of our customers tell us that they discover a whole world of unknown issues when they first begin to monitor their child with TeenSafe," continued Messenger. "Sadly, this often includes learning about abuse from peers that children are suffering from in silence. As parents, we can and should use these situations as teaching opportunities by helping them through issues and creating a positive turnaround."
TeenSafe gives parents the ability to see their children's incoming, outgoing and deleted text messages, web browsing history, contacts, call logs, location and Instagram, WhatsApp and Kik activity to ensure they are not suffering from harassment of cyberbullies. Parents of Android users can now even view and monitor a list of their children's downloaded apps.
