FEDERAL WAY, Wash., June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BrowseReport launched a service this week that allows parents to monitor their children's YouTube Views, Search Terms, Websites Visited, Facebook and Twitter Posts, Text Messages, Phone Calls, and Mobile Activities in a weekly consolidated email. Children are getting access to the Internet and communication technology at an increasingly younger age. It is estimated that 37% of American teens now have smartphones. Parents want to provide access to these tools, but are also worried about exposure to content that their children may not be ready for. The wide availability of sexual content and violence in videos, video games, and the news media is especially concerning to parents in this digital age. Increasing reports of cyber bullying, sexting, and interactions with strangers are all major concerns for any vigilant parent.
Traditional Parental Control Technology has been about web filtering to block inappropriate content; however, this technique has resulted in frustration as products either censor too much content or not nearly enough. Also, these products do not address the social media interaction concerns of today which require parental involvement. Just as in the physical world, good parents need to monitor their children's digital activities, giving them guidance and context so that they can live healthy lives in the digital world. According to Pew Internet Research, parents are the most often cited source of advice and the biggest influence on teens' understanding of appropriate and inappropriate digital behavior. BrowseReport helps parents by providing a convenient, consolidated email report of their children's online activities.
