According to Canalisinvestment firm of Singapore and research firm Gartner by 2017, there will be 15.
6%smartphone teens users. The annual rate of growth of smartphone users in Indiawould be around 129%, even more than that of China (109%).Parent concern hasgrown about teenager’s addiction of their smart devices and their sending andreceiving age inappropriate content online.
The Internet is a powerful learningtool. However, the large scope and anonymous feature of the Internet bringswith it risks from unambiguous or inappropriate content to predators lurking inchat rooms and using instant messaging services. One of the biggest concerns ofparent is that their child must not use the technology for destructive things.
Giving smart devices to children’s are something that can be delayed, but notdenied. Lots of parental control applications are available but adoption rateof these applications is comparatively low. We have conducted a structured,qualitative feature analysis of 85 Android mobile application designed for thepurpose of promoting adolescent online safety. We found that the availableapplications supported parental control through restriction and monitoring overteen self-regulation or parental active mediation.
These applications can’tmake the parent-child relationship positive because child is aware of thisapplication and child know that parents are monitoring them. Thus the adoptionof this application is low. So that parent is seeking for the novel application.As per the parent requirement we proposed mobile application prototypesuggesting, alternative designs to keep an eyes on child activity on theirsmart phones. Parents have to install child application on children device.
Allthe child activities log files stored on the web server. The mostly dialedcall, mostly visited sites, child location is mined stored on web server andnotification is send on the parent application.Parent childapplication is communicate through the web service.
Child side application istotally hidden from child which make the parent child relationship strong.
