“Guide” teenagers, “observe” children
Teenagers need a different kind of parental care than do preschoolers. For this reason, the app offers customizable settings:
- You can choose “Guide mode” to keep tabs on kids who don’t need constant monitoring.
- When opting for “Observe mode”, on the other hand, you will always know your child’s current location.
Mobile Controls and Drive First are family safety products that run on the Sprint Network and let you block kids’ phone use during school hours or set a teen’s phone to automatically lock when they get behind the wheel.
You only need to install Safely Family Utility on your child’s phone if you’ve already signed up for Sprint Mobile Controls or Sprint Drive First.
Get Sprint Mobile Controls:
Get Sprint Drive First:
☆ Don’t believe the hype—this app does not let your parents “spy” on you or read your texts!
☆ It simply reassures them that you’re not on your phone when you should be paying attention in class or keeping your eyes on the road.
☆ A parent with peace of mind is less likely to confiscate your phone. So ask yourself: would you rather have this app on your phone or not have your phone at all?
You need to install Safely Family Utility on every child’s phone you add to your Sprint Mobile Controls or Sprint Drive First accounts.
Install Safely Family Utility the same way you install any other app from Google Play:
☆ Tap the “Download” button and follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
☆ Once you’ve installed Safely Family Utility, you’ll get an email confirming that the phone has been successfully activated for Mobile Controls or Drive First.
