Want to Control Your Kids' Devices? Google has a Solution!

'Family Link'- parents are going to love this app and yeah, it will definitely have the curses of the younger generation! Family Link helps the parent to control the activities of the children's  devices. The app lives on the parent's phone and lets you regulate your kids' devices remotely. 

It allows the parents to control almost all the activities of their children's devices. From setting up a daily bedtime (so the kid won't be tempted to text his/her friends when the parent is fully engaged in something else), fixing a wake time (so they won't watch YouTube before 6 am), there are numerous things that the app an provide.

It tells the parent whatever apps the kids want to put on their phone with a tap of a button and also see which apps they have spent the most time on. Turning the GPS function of the app will let the parent locate the children. Parents can block the children's devices with a finger touch.

The Android version of the app will be hitting the play store soon, which will be followed by an iOS version.

Being able to control child's phone will be a relief for parents, do you agree?
