Top 12 Safety Apps for Parents
The internet can be accessed almost anywhere at any time, and that leaves your children exposed to questionable material. It’s important to know what is going on when it comes to your children’s internet activity. That’s why we took the time to research different apps and services that have made it their mission to give parents the tools to help keep their children safe. These are our 12 favorite.
Not only does AppLock+ let you share your phone while keeping calls, messages, photos, and financials private, but the parental controls let you lock apps at certain times and in specific locations. According to Andrei Petrus, Product Manager for Avira:
AppLock+ enables parents to set healthy limits on smartphone usage without being intrusive. Game apps can be blocked at the school door with geo-lock restrictions or after-school time limits set for social media with the premium version.
DinnerTime fosters more quality time by reminding kids to put their phones away throughout the day. If they need a little extra “encouragement,” advanced features can set time limits on usage and block apps. Co-Founder, Richard Sah, explains what inspired the app:
We created DinnerTime Plus to tackle the problem of technology addiction head on, as I noticed that my children were playing games or watching videos when they should be enjoying quality family time.
K9 Web Protection
Keeping kids safe on the Internet can be a hard task, but K9 Web Protection helps keep an eye on your child’s online activities by blocking websites, enabling safe search, and setting time restrictions. According to a company spokesperson:

MamaBear offers a variety of services to let you know where your kids are, monitor their social media accounts, and read any incoming and outgoing text messages. It also protects your children on the road by alerting you if they go above a certain speed limit. Robyn Spoto, MamaBear co-founder, says:

My Mobile Watchdog
From the app’s dashboard, access your child’s text messages, call logs, and location. My Mobile Watchdog lets you remove or block apps, allow or delete contacts, and be alerted of any unapproved communication. According to CEO Robert Lotter:
Knowing WHO your children are talking to is now the number one concern among parents who have given their children smart phones. My Mobile Watchdog provides the peace of mind parents need while enhancing family communication and understanding.
Pumpic tracks text messages, calls, contacts, photos, and websites. It even provides control over Skype and WhatsApp communication. You can also monitor some content from the cloud and avoid downloading anything to your child’s physical device. According to Pumpic PR Manager, Alex Stevenson:
Pumpic’s iCloud Solution allows monitoring activities on iOS devices without jailbreak. The app also features the advanced online Control Panel and the Control Panel app for Android.
Qustodio’s monitoring features for social networking, games and apps, text messages, and calls help manage your child’s internet experience. Location tracking and a panic button for emergencies offer an extra level of protection. Josh Gable, COO, explains the app this way:

Designed to help supervise your teen, this service lets you view sent, received, and even deleted text messages.

TeenSafe empowers parents with the technology needed to raise the first generation of digital natives.
Kiddoware has created a variety of apps to childproof your phone. The Parental Control Suite can filter web content and set up daily screen time limitations. Paresh Joshi, responsible for Android apps development at Kiddoware summarizes the benefits:
Kiddoware Parental Control Suite protects parent’s personal data and restricts kids to apps and sites you approve…kids get fun time and parents can get some much needed peace and free time.
Net Nanny helps you control your child’s internet usage with filtering options, social media monitoring, and time management features.

Streaming: America’s Favorite Pastime
Ever wonder if other people stream as many shows and movies as you? Are they using Netflix or Hulu? Watching comedies or dramas? And, what’s an “acceptable” amount of episodes to watch in one sitting? We set out to answer some of the most pressing questions about one of the nation’s favorite pastimes: streaming.
After surveying 1,000 individuals across the U.S., this is what we found.
1. No need to pick
Did you know the majority of people across the U.S. use both paid TV and streaming services? It seems we don’t favor one over the other but would rather have both. What may not be as surprising is more 18-34 year olds are reaching for their computers to stream content, while individuals 35 and up are sticking with the good ole TV.
2. We want it now
Most people use a streaming service because it gives them the freedom to watch what they want, when they want. Having the option to pick what and when to watch is even more important to people than the price they pay, including those in the lowest income bracket.
3. Netflix is King
Across all ages, genders, locations, and incomes, it’s all about Netflix. That’s because 73% of streamers choose Netflix. As for the other big streaming services, 30% of people use Amazon Prime followed by Hulu at 22%.
4. Less is more
Most people reported they spend 0-3 hours a week streaming shows and movies. But, are people actually being honest with themselves (really, only 0-3 hours)? The amount of income also correlated with time spent streaming—individuals making $75,000+ like their TV time slightly more.
5. We just want to laugh
From north, south, east, and west, the nation’s favorite genre is comedy, with drama not far behind. Otherwise, men like sci-fi more while the women enjoy crime shows. What about animation? You’ll catch more 18-24 year olds watching that.
6. Just one more episode
With so many shows at our fingertips, it can be hard to say no. Enter binge-watching. Of those surveyed, 9% have streamed 12 or more episodes in one sitting. Who are these people? Mostly the younger crowd and those from the South. But, don’t worry, most people stick to 1-3 episodes in one sitting.
7. A family affair?
Eh, not so much. Most people prefer to stream alone, especially 18-24 year olds. Out of those who did stream with family, it was mostly the 35-44 year old group. Probably because this group is more likely to be married and have kids.
8. Sharing is caring
The older you get, the more likely you are to pay for your own streaming account. That seems logical, but did you know 61% of people have their own account and only 11% use someone else’s? In the West, you can find more people sharing an account and splitting the fees.
9. Dinner and a movie
Multitasking while streaming shows and movies has become a way of life. A majority of people answered they prepare meals or eat while streaming. If they’re not doing that, they’re most likely surfing the web. And only 22% of respondents don’t multitask while streaming.
These claims are our interpretations of the data taken from a Google Consumer Survey of 1,000 individuals on January 11-12, 2016.
Noteworthy Towns: Filming locations for premium shows
Film locations for HBO®, CINEMAX®, and SHOWTIME® hits.
Ever wonder where all those scenes in your favorite shows were shot? Some episodes like the first season of True Detective were filmed right where they took place. Others such as Veep transformed places like Baltimore to look like Washington D.C. You may be surprised to find out where some series were shot.
Here’s a look into the filming locations for nine current HBO®, CINEMAX®, and SHOWTIME® hits. See if your hometown made the list.
U-verse Installation – What to Expect
If you’ve signed up for U-verse or are thinking about it, we’d like to help you understand what to expect from your U-verse installation, and how to get ready for it. If you’ve signed up recently, please wait until after U-verse is installed to cancel your current service. That way we can make sure your transition is as seamless as possible.
If you rent or lease your residence, you should get the owner’s consent before U-verse is installed. If you ordered U-verse Voice, be sure to contact your home alarm provider on or before the installation date, to let them know about the installation.
At any time you can check your appointment status on our “where’s my tech” webpage, at www.att.com/uverseorderstatus.
For safety reasons our technicians are not allowed to move furniture or your personal belongings. So before the technician arrives, please clear the areas around connections, like outlets, and jacks, so that the technician can reach them. The technician may also need access to crawl spaces and attics. Also, please place your pets in an area away from where the technician is likely to be working.
We recommend that you check your computer before installation, to make sure it meets the minimum standards for handling your new Internet speed. Our PC maintenance tool is designed to run tests on your hardware and fix potential issues. Just go to pctoolbox.att.com, and download the software. Please note, the software is currently only available for PC.
On the installation day, an authorized adult who is at least 18 years old needs to be present, and available, to the technician during the installation. Your technician will give you a call, and let you know the estimated time of arrival. The installation takes about four hours to complete. The time varies, depending on ease of access, and so on.
When the technician arrives, he or she will review the order with you to confirm which products you want. The technician will then walk through your home with you to determine where the U-verse equipment will be installed. The technician will talk with you about wiring options and determine whether new wiring or jacks are needed. Your technician will also perform testing to ensure you will have the best performance.
When the work is done, the technician will spend time talking with you about our services, and answer your questions.

Top Benefits of Internet for Seniors
The Internet is able to keep senior citizens engaged in a variety of ways that were not available to them a few decades ago. Here are a few examples of how the Internet can be a great resource for seniors.
Seniors and Social Media
Social media sites began as hubs for young people but an increased number of seniors are engaging on these sites. They have found this is one of the easiest ways to stay in touch with friends, family and current events in the modern, digital age.
Seniors and Online Pen Pals
Long before the Internet even existed, people kept in touch by mailing physical letters back and forth. Today, the pen pal landscape has changed as more senior-based pen pal connection sites have been started online. Whether an older person is looking for a friend to converse with or a romantic interest, the Internet is home to many senior pen pals waiting to connect. This new form of finding pen pals is a great way for seniors to stay connected with people.
Seniors Go Back to School…Online
It might surprise some to learn that people age 50-64 are a demographic that is returning to school in large numbers. When students were surveyed across various age groups, it was observed that older students showed more satisfaction with online learning than younger students and the rate of satisfaction increased with age.
Seniors Shop Online
An activity that may sometimes be frustrating for seniors is going shopping. They may have trouble driving or parking in crowded lots. Some may not be able to walk around for long periods of time or navigate a huge store or mall. And many can feel anxious around big crowds of people. Online shopping is the perfect solution! They are still able to buy gifts for family, or treats for themselves without all the hassle of going to the store.
In conclusion, there are many places for seniors to feel at home online, and the Internet can enrich their lives in many ways. It’s no longer a place dominated by youth. There are online communities full of seniors, learning new things and meeting new people. This trend will only continue as technology makes the Internet accessible for generations of seniors to come.
