Parental Controls for your child’s Blackberry
It's almost frightening how quickly technology develops these days. It doesn't seem like too long ago that phones were simple, making calls and sending texts. Now, we have phones that are essentially full computers, with full access to the internet and all its features; video calling, music sharing, maps, everything.

It's quite fantastic really, knowing that you have full connectivity anywhere; that millions of pages of information are at your fingertips wherever you go and you're never cut off from the world around you. The problem is that this applies to everyone that has a mobile phone, even your children. It means they can access the internet and all its videos, social media and app stores wherever they are, away from the protection of the family home and your watchful eye.

Some parents worry about what their children get up to on the internet, and that's only natural. There are many opportunities for mischief on the internet and some all too well known dangers too. Some parents might have already had something of a close shave or seen some warning signs, and want to prevent things from getting out of hand.

Luckily, mobile phone developers have kept up with parental pleas and included control features so parents can determine what features a child can access on their mobile - the best of these being the Parental Control app on Blackberry.

What is Parental Controls?

Parental Controls is a Blackberry app that allows you to disable or edit certain features on your child's phone. It is available for download from the BlackBerry® App World for any users on BlackBerry® 6 or BlackBerry® 7, and a version for BlackBerry® 5 should be available very soon. Those of you that purchased your phones after Summer 2012 should already have the application on your devices, so won't need to download it yourself.

How Parental Controls can give you peace of mind

The Parental Controls application gives you an array of options, allowing you to disable certain features entirely or just to edit or limit a feature. It doesn't only cover internet access and apps, but the phone’s own calling and messaging features as well, and even the camera. Editable features include:
  • Phone Calls: using this option you can enable or disable calls to the phone. You can also limit incoming calls only to contacts stored to the phone, meaning you child won't receive calls from anyone unknown.

  • Text Messages: enable or disable text messages.

  • Bluetooth: enable or disable direct file transfers from phone to phone over Bluetooth – your children and their friends might use this to share photos.

  • Location Services: use this feature to turn the phone GPS feature either off or on. This feature can show your child's location if used with certain apps, but is also needs to be on if they want directions to a destination from their location on Google Maps.

  • Browser: enable or disable internet access via the phone's web browser.

  • Youtube Uploader: decide whether or not your child can upload videos straight from their phone to Youtube.

  • Application installation: this might come in useful if your child is spending too much on apps. You can use this to disable the ability to download new apps to the phone.

  • Email accounts: enable or disable the addition of new email accounts to the phone.

  • Facebook and Twitter: enable or disable access to these two social media applications on your child's phone.

  • Camera: enable or disable the camera from use.

  • Blackberry Messenger: allow or prohibit access to the Blackberry Messenger application.

Once your chosen settings are in place, these are locked with a four number PIN to ensure your child can't interfere with your settings. You can then allow your child to use their phone with complete peace of mind.

More information on Blackberry Parental Controls can be downloaded from the Vodafone website. There's also plenty of good information and discussion available to read on the Blackberry blogs.
