Our children are obsessive with their smartphones. Most parents cannot even access their children’s smartphones and many parents give up on monitoring application since they are afraid to fights about it. If you still want to keep your kid safer, this article is for you…
Since you need to secretly install Your Kid Safer app on their device, it might be very difficult to convince your kid or teenager handing over their smartphone, after opening it with their password of course.
Here are 5 ways you can use to convince them to open their secured smartphone:
1. The easy way is to ask nicely.
“Can I look at your phone for 2 minutes? I need to see something on the internet”. It is better to ask them when they are busy, distracted by television, computer, friends or family. If you feel this might not work and they have something to hide, try to have a nice and calm family activity together. Eat lunch or dinner with food they like, do something together like watching your favorite film or play a board game. Be sure that you have the time and reason to go a side and install the application.
2. Another easy solution is to know their password.
The best way is when you are outside, tell them you want to take a picture or video of them, when they hand over their phone, see their password or ask them what it is to use the camera. When they give it to you, just install the application later on when they are sleeping, showering or other time when they are not next to the phone.
3. The classic – “I’m out of battery and I need to do urgent call.”
Start an actual call with someone and move to the other room and close the door. Try to find time that they are busy, looking on the television, on the computer or concentrated on something. You can move to the other room and continue talking while installing the app.
4. “This is your lucky day” – the generous way.
Announce to them that you are very happy and this is their lucky day. They have 30 minutes to find something online to buy with a certain budget and you’ll pay. You can be 100% sure that they will find something to buy. They use their smartphone and hand it over to you to pay, you’ll go to the other room, buy it and install Your Kid Safer app at the same time.
5. Get help from a close friend that they know.
Ask a friend to contact them via chat and say that he cannot reach you from some reason. Ask him to push them since it’s urgent. They will approach you, telling you the information, you’ll tell them that your smartphone has a problem and ask to use their phone for few minutes. They will not suspect anything.
Another option that many parents choose is to upgrade to a new smartphone and to install the app when it’s completely new before the smartphone is given.
We truly hope we helped you with finding the best way to install the app and keep your kid safer.
