Parent Cloud is an application for childrens' mobile phones and tablets that gives parents discretionary control of family devices. In the mobile era, protection and intervention of child Internet usage is not as simple as the parent keeping an eye on the family room desktop computer. Children are adept at circumventing and tampering with parental control mechanisms, so Parent Cloud leverages the same technology that enterprises use to secure and monitor employee devices. Internet visits from any browser or application on the mobile device are recorded, sent to the parent in a report and can be easily blocked. Parent Cloud alerts parents with an SMS or phone call if their child breaks rules set by the parent. Parents can remotely ban and remove unwanted or inappropriate applications from the phone or limit time spent in apps. Restrictions can be placed on photo sharing in social networks to protect a child's identity.
