Often it happens that the network fluctuates while commuting or roaming.
The feature ‘offline alerts’ provided in eKAVACH PRO sends SMS alerts to the parents when internet connection is not available. The alerts can be customized and segregated into categories like urgent, alert and information.
3. Family Time:
Have you seen dining table conversations in many families where the children are busy chatting or browsing while the family members talk?
Most of the time, none of the family members come to know what the child is browsing about.
The feature ‘family time’ blocks all internet applications during family time like a dinner. It also ensures the adequate rest required by children as the apps/ internet connection seize to function after sleep time and until wake up time.
4. More control over applications:
Now a days apps are created like crazy for each and every thing. Moreover most of them are free to download.
With the eKAVACH PRO, parents now have the access to the app store. They can know about the downloads by their child, detailed information about the app, specify time limit for app usage, block, permit or even check whether it’s a real requirement for their child as well.
5. View dashboard stats of your child’s online activities:
6. Remotely manage activities:
The eKAVACH PRO app can now be accessed from anywhere and anytime. With this ‘remote access’ feature, now parents need not be around the child anymore to ensure online safety and security.
There are certain sites like adult videos, social communities which have age restricted view. But still kids under the age of 18 use them on a daily basis as fake credentials can be provided during sign up.
With the ‘categorization’ feature, parents can allow only certain categories and block the others. Notifications are received when the child tries to access the blocked categories.
