Protect Your Family With Family Guard – An App To Monitor Who Is Calling Or Texting Your Children [VIDEO]

Privus Mobile developed the app Family Guard that enables mobile users to keep an eye on who is calling their children or other loved ones. With Family Guard, not only does the application identify the caller to the phone’s user, but it will also send a copy of the caller’s information to a designated guardian’s phone and/or email. Users simply register their handset in addition to the handset being monitored to begin receiving information regarding calls to that phone.

The Family Guard app is completely compatible with every smartphone except the iPhone. The application only needs to be installed on the monitored device, while the guardian’s phone just needs to receive text messages or email. The app requires a monthly subscription fee.
