Despite soaring inflation, consumer spending on mobile phones and computing devices increased by two percent to £484 billion ($600 billion) in 2017. Families will be more likely buy tech-friendly gifts for children this year – tablets are proving popular and continue to soar.
A child’s vulnerability to technology is not something to take lightly as more and more young children are using social media, exploring chatrooms, playing online games and surfing the web.
These technological advances can however, prove harmful exposing your child to content that you may not wish them to view – that’s where parental controls become valuable.
Parental controls allow you to filter and restrict content (i.e. graphic and explicit imagery) from microtransactions within apps. These filters intercept internet content on specific devices and analyse individual websites and items of content that users attempt to access, processing this data in real-time before determining whether they are suitable.
