Avast Family Space for parents - Parental controls

Offers in-app purchases

Smartphones are a big part of today's digital world, and you shouldn't have to worry about giving one to your child.

Kids today are likely spending much more time at home and online. As children are exploring new websites and apps, you may need to protect them from discovering some inappropriate content. Avast Family Space is a parental assistance app that gives you control over your child’s mobile devices so you can keep your child safe and help them develop healthy online habits.

Keep track of which sites and apps are safe and which aren’t by whitelisting or blacklisting them, and by easily filtering certain content automatically. And just because you might be in lockdown doesn’t mean you can’t limit your child’s online time. Simply adjust when they can access the internet on their device.

Avast Family Space makes parenting even easier by also allowing you to track the location of your child’s device, receive GPS alerts when they arrive at a certain location, and check their phone’s battery status to make sure you can always reach them.

Keep your child safe with these 5 key features:
Content filters
Worried about your child accessing suspicious websites or sites with unwanted content including gambling, violence, drugs, pornography, or racism? Then control their surfing using content filters, so you can approve or block sites that contain inappropriate content. You can also block specific website and app categories such as games or social media.*

Phone locator
Using a real-time GPS map, locate your child’s phone to make sure they’re safe at all times.

GPS location alerts
Receive automatic alerts whenever your child arrives at or leaves certain locations, including home, work, or school.

Internet control
Pause internet access at any time to make sure your child isn’t surfing the web after bedtime, or set time limits for when their device shouldn’t have access to the internet.

Phone status
Keep track of the battery status of your child’s device to make sure you can always get in touch with them.

How does Avast Family Space work?
To connect your child’s mobile device to your own, you must first download the Avast Family Space app onto your device and the Avast Family Space Companion app onto your child’s device. You will then follow a few simple onboarding instructions to complete the setup process.

Once the Avast Family Space Companion app is activated, you will be able to block inappropriate content and manage which apps your child can use*, view their location using a phone locator, pause internet use, and get location alerts so you’ll know where they are at all times.

Common parental concerns that Avast Family Space addresses:
Did my child arrive home safely from school?
Quickly view your child’s current location on a private GPS map with the help of a phone locator.

Are they using inappropriate apps?
Easily block an app that you don’t want your child to have access to. If you change your mind, you can unblock the app whenever you want.*

Are they browsing the internet at school?
Pause internet access on your child’s device so he or she won’t get distracted while at school.

Are they exposed to inappropriate web content?
Block websites or content categories that you feel are inappropriate for your child.

They aren’t responding, did something happen?
View your child’s phone status and check their device’s battery life.

When the app is opened for the first time we will generate and collect a unique identifier in order to measure app installations and campaign performance.
