As parents, we want our children to have every possible opportunity to learn and grow. At the same time, we also want to keep them safe. With technology today children have a world of opportunity and freedom right at their fingertips, but with that also comes the need for responsibility. We need our children to learn about and understand the dangers associated with the internet, as well as the concerns of spending too much time on their devices. That’s where OurPact comes in.

OurPact is a newly developed iOS app by ParentsWare that allows parents to monitor what their children are doing on their tablet or phone. With this app you can easily manage your entire family’s device usage under one simple platform. You will be able to block your child’s access to the internet and apps, as well as schedule their usage according to their routines.

OurPact offers two ways to block: manual and scheduled. A manual block allows you to block the application right away, preventing your children from downloading or opening that app until you remove the block. With a scheduled block, you can create a specific schedule to restrict app and internet usage on your child’s device during any given time frame. You can create multiple schedules, set the start and end times, and select the days of the week (and/or weekend) you want the block enforced.

In addition, OurPact also enables you to block specific internet sites. This really comes in handy if you have younger children like I do who may accidentally click on an inappropriate link while exploring! If that happens, simply use your device to block what they clicked on and they will not be able to click on it again!

OurPact is incredibly easy to set-up and use. The app is free for download, and once you have it on your device, all you need to do is set up your account, then follow the simple instructions for pairing your device with your child’s. In just minutes you will have peace of mind when it comes to your child’s device usage.
