Great news for parents looking for a free alternative to keep a tab on their child’s phone activity, the Easy logger is a no nonsense app that collates all text messages plus phone logs and sends you a neat email at the end of every day. No subscription, no configuration, no logins to check.

This is the easiest method of keeping an eye on your childs text messages without decreasing the phones battery life or creating hours of work for yourself.

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation study, kids spend an average of 7 hours, 38 minutes a day connected to some type of electronic device. The problem is what the children do on their phones can affect their lives adversely. Incidents of predation, bullying and abuse have been on the rise and most children are not forthcoming as they cannot see the signs.

Easy logger users monitoring their children’s text messages number in the tens of thousands, they have seen a whole new side of their children in the monitoring logs, from seemingly innocent (but potentially provocative) photos, to online solicitations, sexting, or befriending some less-than-desirable characters, kids can make mistakes caused by inexperience.

The child sees nothing amiss on the phone and no notifications, telling the child about the monitoring is completely up to you.

Every family is different, the way you use the information from the text messages to either confront your child or nudge them towards making the right decision is left to your best judgement. The Easy logger simply acts as your early warning system and keeps you posted on what’s going on with your childs life.

Often the app can become a way to keep a check on unnecessary phone expenses, letting the child know that you get a list of calls made keeps you in control of how much you are spending on the phone.

If you are giving your child his/her first phone or simply keeping tabs on how they use the device, the Easy logger can help you keep posted on their activities and avoid unnecessary expenses on calls and texts.
