Top parental control apps for Android phones

You have to allow your children access to a phone because you want to stay in touch with them. Ideally, they would use it for reasons like researching for a school project etc. Or, they use their phones to play games and download apps and browse the net. Sometimes, these apps can be dangerous as bullies and predators can try to harm them. You cannot take away your children’s phones to keep them safe, but you can use parental control apps to keep an eye on their online activities.
