With recent posts on cell phones AND our recent experiences with them I wanted to put out an alert to you ladies to watch out for some of these hidden dangers you may not know of. First of all, there is an application called "whatsapp". It's a multi client chat/im program that the kids are using to circumvent parental controls and you can NOT monitor it with them!!! They can do all kinds of things with it like pictures AND videos!!! (been there done that!) You can not see or read their messages that they send or receive either. The most you "might" get is the number connected to it but that is again, only a maybe. You probably already have heard about "snapchat", you can NOT monitor that either. Another program that they can access if they can get online is "mixt" or mix it. NOT monitorable. Youtube you know about but did you know you can set controls INSIDE of youtube website ON THE PHONE to "strict" on their phone? You can but that doesn't necessarily mean they can't find ways around it. They can still sign up and still do things. Additionally they can go to, for example, yahoo and you can NOT read what they IM about or email "within" the program. You think that from the phone you can from "keylogging"on the phone but there are ways around it the kids are finding, even ones you don't think have the knowledge or ability to. We found out the hard way. A tiny window of opportunity and it was taken advantage of and in only 1 weeks time a major incident occurred in our house. I now have explicit pictures and video (both ways) from a guy who my middle difficult child thought was a 16yo (she cognitively doesn't process connections right to begin with so we would have never thought SHE would have been the one to circumvent all this) who looks to be more in his 20's perhaps later. He is OUT of this country too. This is an international incident just discovered last evening by chance as because A) she thought she covered all her tracks, B) she has a different phone now and this was on the "older phone" and C) I was getting the feeling she was up to know good by behaviors and the "nigeria" situation, though it turns out it's not nigeria after all. Scary because, as per, she STILL doesn't get stranger danger after all these years and released not only pictures of herself, our house and vehicles, but she gave out address, etc....COMPLETELY unsafe! NO MORE PHONE! Just like she was banned from internet at home and school. There was a "safe browser" which limited internet severely on the phone through a special program locked down and could ONLY be used here in the household wifi. Yet, she still got around it all. She is not even 16 yet. Just a strong warning to you all to learn all you can and keep learning about what kinds of applications, programs, chats, IM, etc is out there and whether they truly are monitorable or not, what you want access to for your child or not and just be vigilent in watching over them to be able to catch ASAP when something does happen!
