Mobile Parental Control Launches Real Time GPS Location Tracking in PhoneSheriff Version 2.0

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Retina-X Studios announces the launch of PhoneSheriff 2.0, a mobile parental control and filtering software compatible with smartphones. The software allows parents to monitor and block anything their child does on their smartphone. PhoneSheriff now includes real time GPS tracking on a map in an entirely new interface. The hybrid system has won the 2013 TopTenReviews.com Gold Award for two consecutive years.

According to the Pew Research Center, 75 percent of all teens ages 12-17 now have a mobile phone. They report that half of all teens send at least 50 text messages daily, and one in every three sends at least 100 text messages each day. With the rise of sexting (sexual texts), coupled with mobile phones being used for bullying, and by predators, many parents can benefit by turning to PhoneSheriff 2.0.

"The number of teens using phones is on the rise, and so is the number of ways that they are using them," explains Craig Thompson, spokesperson of Retina-X Studios. "Parents may feel they are at a loss in keeping tabs on them, but with our software they maintain all the control they need in order to help keep their child safe and out of trouble."

Employers also turn to PhoneSheriff 2.0 in an effort to monitor the phones they provide to their employees. It provides them an opportunity to ensure they are conducting business on the phone, and that they are not engaging in such things as viewing pornography. Employers find that it helps to improve productivity and accountability, as they can keep a closer watch on where their employers are and what they are up to on company time.

Some of the features that PhoneSheriff 2.0 provides include:

  • Full parental, or employer, controls allowing the registered user to place filters, blocks, and monitor all activity conducted with the phone. With this, particular apps or Web browsing can be restricted, and SMS/calls can be blocked.
  • Placing time restrictions, such as when calls are and are not allowed, or times that the phone cannot be used at all.
  • Monitoring of all content that is accessed with the mobile phone. Whether someone is going online, sending a text message, or taking a picture, everything is recorded so that registered users can access the detailed info at their convenience.
  • Providing instant GPS location and device lock capabilities, as well as alert message notification if the SIM card has been changed.

New features that PhoneSheriff 2.0 offers include real time location tracking, where users can view their child or employee's locations on a map as they are happening. There is now also a custom profanity alert option, and Geofencing feature, which allows parents, or employers, to receive notification when the person has left a specific geographic area.

"Most parents want their teen to have a phone if only for having the ability to reach them at all times," adds Thompson. "But there are so many issues that can come up it just makes sense to use a monitoring software. It puts to rest all the questions and finger crossing that they are doing the right thing with their phone."

PhoneSheriff 2.0 is compatible with Android, iPhone, and Blackberry. Working in stealth mode, the person is not aware that the software is in use. Even when they believe they have deleted all their history on the phone, PhoneSheriff 2.0 compiles the information so that the registered user can log in and view it at any time, from anywhere.

PhoneSheriff 2.0 provides all of these benefits and the security for only $49.97 per year. To learn more, or to purchase the software, visit www.phonesheriff.com.
