Growing phone usage among children raises concerns about online safety for kids. 

We’ve researched that parents should not fully trust even the most popular apps and websites on the internet. So we’ve put our research into an article where you can learn why Snapchat is not safe for kids, what the popular Omegle app is, and why Omegle might be dangerous for your kids.

Fortunately, today we have parental control apps that help us supervise and set restrictions on kids’ iPhones and iPad.

Is Apple Screen Time enough?

Apple Screen time provides basic website filtering that is enough for some parents. However, if you want your kid to be more secure online and interested in having more flexibility, consider using Grace Parental Control app that provides more advanced abilities to block websites and filter web content.

How to increase kid’s web safety with Grace

Block more than 50K websites automatically

Adding websites manually at Apple Screen Time settings might become an overwhelming process. 

Grace has over 50K of adult, gambling, drugs, alcohol, weapons-related websites pre-loaded and blocked by default on your kid’s device. We update these lists regularly to protect your child from unexpected newly arisen sites.

Set time when a website should be blocked

With Grace, you can schedule when you want a particular website to be blocked. For example, you can block social media websites and apps access during School time and automatically allow them when School time ends.

You can also specify how long you allow your kid to use a specific website per day. For example, you set a 3 hours limit for an online web game or Facebook. When 3 hours of usage is reached, this specific website is blocked for this day and can be accessed only if you allow more time for it as a parent.

Grace Gives More Than just Content Filters

In addition to the advanced web filters, Grace parental control app is full of essential features to supervise children’s devices.

  • Lock your child’s phone remotely

  • Set daily Screen Time limits

  • Schedule restrictions to be enabled at a specific time

  • Limit daily usage for apps and websites individually

  • Reward Screen Time for completing house chores

  • Block in-app purchases

  • and many more
