I was recently introduced to a new app called WebSafety. It rolled out today for Android Smartphones and tablets. iOS Support is coming soon and I will let you know when it's available for parents to use. WebSafety is an app that will help you, as a parent, monitor your children's online activity and more.
In a nutshell, WebSafety will allow you to keep tabs on your children. Want to know what you can do with WebSafety? Here you go!

So, as you can tell, WebSafety has you and your family covered. Family friendly features to keep you all connected in a smart way.
And if you still don't think this is something you and your family need, here are some statistics to make you think. The old saying, "Not my kid," is something you don't want to be caught saying in today's tech savvy climate.
Research that has been done by WebSafety shows the following:
80% of teenagers regularly use a cell phone
71% of teens admit that they hide their online activity from their parents
43% of children have said they have exchanged messages with strangers
WebSafety has a limited time offer where monthly subscribers can get the first six months at 50% off. Annual subscribers get the first year 50% off. With WebSafety's limited time offer families can feel the peace of mind that they have been searching for.
My friends, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Now is the time for all of us to be proactive and not reactive when it comes to our kids and their safety online. Educate yourself and do what is right for your family. Utilize the tools that are available to you and reach out for help if you and your family need it. Most importantly, use them. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
