This post about the Family Protector App from US Cellular was made possible by the free cell phone and compensation I received for being a Better Moments Blogger Brigade member.
I don’t have any children yet, however I know that it can be really worrisome to have a loved one out and not know where they are. So, I was interested in the Family Protector App from US Cellular which can notify you when a loved one arrives at their destination and much more.
Family Protector App
One of the things I really like about the Family Protector App is that you (the parent) can receive an alert when a child checks-in at their destination. So, you don’t have to wonder if they ever got there. Rather, the app will notify you on your phone and there will be a log of it in the Family Protector App which you can view. That would make me feel much safer allowing a child to go out by themselves, knowing that I would be alerted when they got there. I wouldn’t have to wonder if they made it or not.
I’ll admit it. When I was in high school, I spent too much time on the phone. My parents had no idea how much time until they received a surprisingly high phone bill from all of the minutes I’d used up. If my parents had used the Family Protector App, they would have been able to monitor my phone usage and not been surprised when the bill arrived (and it was too late). They could have seen exactly who I was talking to and when as well as my texts. That probably would have sufficed to get me to talk less to boys. It also would have ensured that I didn’t say I was going to a friend’s house while I was really going with another friend to a different place (not that I would ever do that). Additionally, my parents could have blocked certain activities from my phone during certain times. I might have gotten more sleep with that on my phone.
I’m sure by now, you’ve learned more about my high school years and the Family Protector App than you thought possible. Haha! Either way, if you are interested in using the Family Protector App (there’s a free 30-day trial available), you can go the US Cellular website and check it out. So, how do you manage your children’s mobile devices and what rules/agreements do you have in place?
