Free family locator Kid Control is a reliable app for watching Android cell phones.
KidControl turns your kid's phone into a tool for monitoring the phone, controlling location and safety. It is Child Safety and Find My Phone services in one app. Perhaps, it can even help to improve your relationship with your kids :)
Installation, two simple steps:1. Install the app to your smartphone and send invitation to your child's Android smartphone.2. Install the app to your child's Android smartphone using the CODE from invitation. Child will be added automatically to your account.
To add other family members, send into invitations as well.
For parents with non Android phones: install and register Kid Control mobile phone locator on your child's Android smartphone, then look after your child's Android phone in your account at http://go.kid-control.com using the same login and password.
Receive automated alerts when you child arrives at school and returns home. To do so, create Places (geo fences), for example School and Home. When your kid enters or leaves them, your phone will receive a notification.
When phone battery level goes below 15%, KidControl sends a notification about this phone. You'll be able to remind your child to charge the phone.
In the Battery and Internet report you can how often the child charges the phone, how quickly it drains, at what time the phone is unplugged. Based on this data, you can assume when the child goes to bed and gets up. This report also shows stability of Internet signal for the last two days.
To provide precise coordinates, the phone must have Geolocation service enabled. It is managed in Android > Settings > My Location. Enabled Wi-Fi increases accuracy to 30-100 feet and works indoors. GPS can identify location with 30-150 feet accuracy only outdoors.
When GPS and Wi-Fi location are turned off or not available, KidControl determines phone's location by LBS coordinates of GSM towers with 300-5000 feet accuracy. LBS location is marked on the map by the antenna icon. To provide LBS data, the phone still needs Internet connection.
Some parents are worried that the kid can delete the app. Based on our experience, it is better to explain the child why KidControl is needed and give him/her the ability to see when parents return home. You'll be surprised to see how clean your house is every time you are back :)This level of openness will also make unnecessary regular calls from children asking:- Mom, where are you?- Father, when will you come home?
If you need assistance with setting the app up or have questions/suggestions you can reach our tech support directly from the app, in the built-in Help section. Or, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
