plano is a powerful parental control app that can help manage your kids’ smart devices. It controls and filters apps and content, monitors screentime, and tracks other risk factors to potentially prevent myopia (short sightedness). plano was created with the support of Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) and Singapore National Eye Center (SNEC). plano’s vision is to manage smart device use and myopia in children, by promoting positive parenting, parental guidance, and family safety.
Children still need monitoring and parental guidance when using smart devices. Most parenting apps only have child lock (or kidslock) or parental lock feature. This feature is very important to protect your family, and keeping browsing web safe for toddlers and kids. However, aside from family safety and security concerns, there are other factors associated with smart devices usage such as myopia. plano is built to tackle all parental concerns in smart device usage for kids and teenagers. That is why plano also helps you to manage eye to screen distance, ensures safe family friendly content while browsing, safe zone alert, child blocker & kidslock for inappropriate content, and much more.
How does plano work to protect my family and promote positive parenting? The app runs in the background of the child’s smart device. It helps manage your kids’ device usage habits by ensuring good eye to screen distance, providing smart alerts so they can rest their eyes, monitoring screentime, and even allows you to remotely lock the kids’ devices.
