hope you are safe these days.

So.. maybe I'm being too paranoid
I was looking through some platforms but there are so many options, and I don't know what service to rust.
What tools or apps would you recommend for phone monitoring?
I have an urgent need to know my kids' don't visit inappropriate websites.
because... I know how many suspicious apps there can be online, along with all those malicious content everywhere.:hide:

I don't know anything about the link you show, but kids can beat any monitoring app. There's one that costs $150 that they can defeat. Up to the parents to be the monitor and discipline as necessary.

Monitoring apps are probably OK with younger children, but for older ones, they can cause more problems than they solve.

The trouble with using monitoring apps, is that if your child discovers that you're monitoring them, it damages the trust between you and the child, and once that trust is lost it is hard to regain.

If you have concerns that your child is not being careful online, then IMO it is better to talk to them about it, and in a calm and reasoned way, point out the possible dangers that they could be exposing themselves to.
