Sprint's Parental Control

Limit your child’s purchases
Monitor their texts, calls, and camera use
Monitor the apps installed on your child’s device
Sprint is a popular American internet service provider! You’ve no doubt heard of it already. But did you know that they also offer free parental controls that will allow you to control your child’s internet access (among other things?) It’s persuaded manyparents to switch over for that alone. If only to instill some much-needed discipline on their children — who are no doubt ecstatic after having been provided a new phone.
But, how does Sprint’s parental control settings actually work? And, if you don’t have Sprint (or are planning to switch to another internet provider),what kind of alternatives for it are available in the market? Well, continue reading to find out more!
As mentioned, Sprint’s Parental Control settings are a convenient way of controlling your child’s access to the internet. But, that’s not all there is! The control settings will also allow you to control texting, content purchases, voice calls,andcamera use. It’s quite extensive, and for most parents, it’s more than enough to instill the discipline that they believe their children need.
What are the benefits of using Sprint’s Parental Control over its alternatives…?
The 10 that we recommend have been chosen because they are either free of charge or they offer free trial periods that will allow you to check out the app before making any commitments. Outside of that, however, they are pretty much the same. Any difference we’ll cover in our breakdown of its pros and cons.
To start, please go to the Sprint Website and log in with your given Sprint account!
To access Sprint’s Parental Control Settings, all you really have to do is go to Settings. Once there, you’ll find that there are several tabs on the left side of the screen.
All the controls are available here. Feel free to fiddle around with it as needed — so as to ensure that all the controls are set up as you want them to be.
Before we go on to list some of the alternatives that you may want to consider, let’s actually take a look at one first! Our example, in this case, is Aispyer. Aispyer, much like Sprint’s Parental Control, was designed for monitoring and controlling phone usage. Of course, in this case, the tool is separate from and is not involved with any service provider. So, it will need to be set up directly on your child’s phone. After that, however, you’ll have complete access to the following…
Much like with Sprint, you’ll need to sign up for Aispyer to start!
You will also have to have a subscription package to proceed (in which case, there are plenty to choose from.) But, don’t worry, you can always check out the Aispyer demo first if you’re not sure if you’d like to commit to the tool immediately!
Next, some manual set-up is required. Fortunately, this process has been greatly simplified and is demonstrated in the video tutorial that we’ve linked below.
Once set up, all you need to do is sign back into Aispyer on your own device. From then on, you’ll be able to monitor and control your child’s device from the Aispyer Dashboard!
Explore some of its other options by clicking the options on the left side of the interface!
If you’re still curious about all the other parental control tools available as a Sprint alternative, then you may want to know about the 5 we’ve listed below! We’ve made sure to include a variety of them so that you are able to see as many different types of Sprint Parental Control alternatives available!
FamiSafe, reveals a lot just on its name alone! It’s both a parental monitoring and control app. So, you can say it’s a bit of a mix between Aispyer and Sprint Parental Controls. It’s also available for both mobile devices and computers, so you’re not necessarily limited to just one or the other. With this tool, you can…
Qustodio is closer to Aispyer. In that, it’s primarily used for monitoring purposes. Just like FamiSafe, however, it’s available for both mobile devices and computers (as well as Kindles, in fact!) It’s a multi-purpose tool, and quite a smart one to boot. So, it’s definitely worth looking into.
Spyrix is a very simple but powerful Keylogging tool. It was made for deep monitoring, and capable of recording each and every keystroke that is performed on your child’s device (which, in this case, is their computer.) It doesn’t have many control functions, but it’s definitely useful for keeping tracking of your children’s activity.
Monitor devices connected to PC.
Norton’s Only Family monitoring app was launched recently to work for mobile devices (Android and iOS) as well as Windows OS computers. It’s monitoring functions are quite advanced as well. Allowing you to set up social media tracking, location tracking, email monitoring, and more. Whilst, on the control side of things, you have access to things like web filtering and time schedule.
OpenDNS’s Family Shield, just like Spyrix, is a Windows-only parental control tool. But, more importantly, it’s possibly the closest alternative to Sprint! Just like with the Sprint Parental Controls, OpenDNS is set up directly at the router level. Installing this will allow you to…
Sprint, especially if you’re signed up for one of their subscriptions already, is a good example of what a good Parental Control tool should be! But, of course, that doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily better than Aispyer or any of the other apps we introduced today. Make sure to explore your options as best as you can and try to pick a tool based on what yourfamily needs!
