3CX Mobile Device Manager is a service that has multiple applications. While we discussed before how business users can protect their data using it, it also has great functionality for safety-conscious parents. The number of children who own smartphones is growing and recent research has suggested that by middle-school, more than 80% of children own their own mobile device.
While on one hand, this mobile phone use creates a culture of digital-natives; children and young people who are positively comfortable with using technology to solve problems. On the flip side, it can arguably creates new problems to be navigated. Other research has recently indicated that 1 in 5 children have either had their device lost or stolen, meaning contact information, images, video and other private information could easily be accessed by others.
3CX Mobile Device Manager is a powerful and simple-to-use security tool that allows you to securely manage your child’s device.
Therefore, while it is extremely useful for a network manager to keep sensitive business data safe, this will also apply to savvy parents. 3CX Mobile Device Manager is a powerful and simple-to-use security tool that allows you to securely manage your child’s device.
Firstly, the 3CX MDM lets you track the location of the device. So, if your child is late home from school and you’re subsequently worried or if the phone has been stolen, you can easily see where the device is located. This can help with retrieval, perhaps too if the phone has simply been lost.
If you ask children why they have a cell phone and then ask their parents why they let their children have a cell phone, you will actually get two completely different answers. Parents see the device as a security measure- it allows the child to contact they where ever they might be. The child, however, will principally see the phone as an entertainment device, a communication tool, a browser, a camera… in fact, it’s security features are often the last thing the child will mention.
Children are therefore utilizing their device for the creation all manner of content; messages, images, video and more. In the event of loss or theft, this creates an additional problem, but one that can be solved by 3CX MDM.
The service lets you locate, lock down or wipe a missing device, meaning such content cannot be accessed by nefarious 3rd parties. If nothing else, this can give great peace of mind to anxious Mum’s and Dad’s that personal information can be removed remotely.
There’s a host of other cool things too. Messages can be sent to the device, you can monitor and control app downloads and usage- even pushing applications you might want your child to use.
Many parents can find themselves reluctant to let their child have their very own smart device. However, by using a feature-rich, user-friendly and powerful service like 3CX Mobile Device Manager, many of these fears can be allayed and parents can provide their child with the security and independence a cell phone warrants.
Perhaps best of all, the service is free for up to five users. Check out the website for more information and the mobile application can be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store.
