We will be covering all of the usual predator stuff…..However, we will spend a lot of time on cell phone applications and monitoring. These apps include Instagram, Snap Chat, KIK Etc…
So you can imagine how excited I was when I was made aware that there was a potential monitoring software out there for the IPhone. So I reached out to Webwatcher.com to see if they would allow our Technologists to Test and Evaluate the product. Here was their response:
“As of this time, we still do not have available evaluation or free trial of our Webwatcher for iOs software. This is still being worked on by our Development Team.
Just to give you a heads up, with our Webwatcher for iOs, we monitor all sent/received text messages, call logs and Geolocate.
Unlike webwatcher installation for pc or mac, we have different process with our webwatcher for ios. First, you have to register your icloud account onto the device you want monitored. Just make sure icloud and wi-fi settings are turned on too. You can then assign devices via your webwatcher online account.”
So as my team suspected, Webwatcher.com was just accessing the I-Cloud to monitor texts, photos and geolocation. Nothing like the functionality with My Mobile Watch Dog. They want $100.00 to have an account. Just to let my parents know, you can do the same thing by signing on to your child’s I-Cloud from your Apple device. IF you decide to get this software, just understand if your child changes the password to their I-Tunes or shuts off the cloud from their device, they have locked you out…..FYI
In a nutshell, we are back to square one. Parents who are considering getting your child a smart phone???? Get them an Android such as the Samsung S4 which does just as much if not more as the I-Phone. Then for 5 bucks a month you can see everything your child does and control that smart phone with My Mobile Watch Dog.
Have a safe St. Patty’s weekend.!!!!
Here was this weeks post from Facebook:
OK Everyone, Today I was flooded with numerous emails from the fan site and my partners in law enforcement about an email some of you may have received in reference to the company WEBWATCHER.com having a mobile solution for monitoring IPhones. Remember, I told you in the past there was no way to monitor an I phone???? Well, this software sort of works…..Not like My mobile Watchdog at all.
Here is what we have discovered. This is signing into an account you make with Webwatcher.com. Then you have to sign in with your child’s iTunes account . Which means if the child or teen changes the password on the iTunes account and does not give it to the parent, this software is useless. We believe what the software is doing is taking the back up out of the I-cloud. So a question I have not answered is what if they lock you out of the I-Cloud or shut it off from their phone???
You just have to look at if you were to sign in an iPad to the same iTunes account that is the information you could get. This means you can see the apps, text messaging, photos. But it’s very easy to be locked out of the software. I dont know if it is worth it for $100.00 a year.
I called the company to see if I could Test and Evaluate their new product…More to come on this as our Technologists test this product out. If it works well we will endorse it. I promise
