Awareness Technologies today announced that its leading parental computer monitoring and keylogger software – WebWatcher – is now able to track all SMS messages sent to and from Android devices. WebWatcher Mobile already has BlackBerry monitoring capabilities and the Company plans to launch WebWatcher Mobile for iPhone devices later this year.
United States teenagers send and receive an average of 3,339 text messages per month. Additionally, adoption of Smartphones among teens ages 13-17 continues to grow, with 94 percent of teen mobile subscribers self-identifying as advanced data users, turning to their cell phones for messaging, Internet, multimedia, gaming, and other activities like downloads (Nielsen).
"We've created a simple way for parents to stay informed about who their children are interacting with via text messages and what they're communicating to ensure they aren't victims of cyberbullying or involved in inappropriate behavior like sexting," said Brad Miller, CEO and Chairman of Awareness Technologies.
WebWatcher Mobile is easy to install and parents are able to monitor all of their children's SMS messaging activity whether it be on a computer, laptop or Smartphone through one interface. Recorded activity can be viewed by logging into the secure WebWatcher online interface and it can be accessed from any internet-connected computer. WebWatcher's keystroke logging technology allows parents to select alert words that will trigger a notification that will automatically be sent via email any time the words are sent or received.
WebWatcher is the leading parental monitoring software on the market. WebWatcher allows parents to remotely monitor and manage all computer activity, including email, instant messaging, website visits, and social networking activity, as well as block inappropriate websites and programs.
