Smile KidSentinel - Activity log for your child's BlackBerry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone. We've just released our latest app:

KidSentinel keeps track of your child's cell phone usage so you have peace of mind. The software tracks incoming and outgoing phone calls, text messages, e-mails, and multimedia (mms) messages. It also keeps track of changes to the phone's calendar and phone book. In addition, the software keeps track of photos taken with the phone. All of this information is then compiled and e-mailed to you on a regular basis (daily or every two hours). The software is password protected and cannot be turned off or removed without you knowing about it.

Kids are increasingly vulnerable to predators. And since you can't ever be sure predators don't find out your child's phone number or e-mail address, this software helps you parent from a distance. Keep your child safe while still allowing them the freedom of having their own phone.

How It Works

KidSentinel uses proprietary technology to keep track of your child's phone. The technology is complex, but the result is simple: once installed on the phone, the child's activity will be monitored and e-mailed to you on a regular basis.

Set it and forget it.

Download and install the software from the KidSentinel website. Set the master password, and adjust the logging settings. This can be done in under one minute. After this step, you're ready to give the phone to your child.

Peace of mind for you and your child.

Your child uses their phone normally, and you receive their activity logs at your prefered frequency (once a day in the morning, noon, or night, or once every two hours). Your child doesn't experience any slow down on their phone, and they will never be bothered by the software. If they restart or shut down their phone, the software restarts automatically.

World class protection.

You can rest assured that your child is protected from predators and bullies. KidSentinel gives you the power to take action to protect your child. You may even print out and use the activity logs as evidence at school or in court.

No hidden costs, free upgrades for life.

KidSentinel delivers the activity logs through e-mail, so we don't charge any subscription fees. You purchase the software and it is yours to use forever. You can even move the software to another phone when you upgrade your child's phone. All software updates are free of charge, giving you peace of mind that your child is always protected with the latest technology.

Features:

* Tracks phone usage and sends a daily report.
* Easy to install and configure.
* Virtually tamper-proof.
* Peace of mind for parents.


Minimum Requirements:


* BlackBerry OS 4.6+

Available now on sale from the BlackBerryForums.com store!

Sounds interesting, if I ever give my kids a BB. I suspect they'll want an iphone though. I imagine it could also be used in a BIS office environment, too.

The privacy freak in me must ask: Does it clearly state its presence, or is it stealthy?

Hi,

The app is stealth... there is not even an icon in the active apps list. This is meant to allow parents to help monitor the kids phone usage, though we're considering less stealthy options for office environments.

Interesting, indeed. Does it show up in the third-party application list? If so, how?

I can see this app has valid uses, but there is also a huge potential for misuse by jealous spouses, boyfriend/girsfriend, abusers, etc.

We have a user that's been using the beta who printed out the logs and is using them in court in a harassment case.

The app is stealth, but it's always useful to let the child know they're being tracked for their protection.

I just downloading KS today but when I attempt to run the software, I get this message:


Error starting Kinderguardian: Class 'net.rim.blackberry.api.sms.SendListener' not found

Any ideas to what the problem might be?

On a guess, I'd say that you installed on an OS level lower than 4.6
