Do you have a young child who has an electronic device such as a tablet or a phone? Do they use the internet and download apps on their devices? If so, you probably have the same fear as most parents; your child can be exposed to inappropriate and/or dangerous apps, websites, etc.
Ourpact is a newly developed app designed by ParentsWare that helps to control your child’s devices using parental control and management. You can block certain apps, block the internet, and schedule a usage time for your child’s device.
This app is extremely easy to use and set up. First, you download it on to your device and sign up for your free account. You will be entering your name, email address and a password for your account. After that, the app will prompt you to go to a specific web URL on your child’s device and pair them up. By doing this, you will have full access to what they are able to do, download, and the time they are allowed to use their device.
If at any point in time your child’s device is unmanaged, your app will alert you immediately so you can correct that if you want to. There are two ways to block apps on your child’s device using this app. You can choose between a manual block and a scheduled block. If you would like to perform a manual block, this will immediately block the app from being downloaded on their device. You can also use a scheduled block, which will allow them to use the app during a certain time period, but not before or after the set time you choose.
If you have company over and would like your child to stay off of their device, simply go to your FAMILY screen within your app and click on “Block Access” and that will go into effect immediately. You can always reverse that when company leaves or when you are ready for them to play on their tablet or phone again.
This app is great for parents who want to be able to monitor what their kids are doing and set a schedule for tablet/phone time during the week and on weekends. I highly recommend it!
