We live in a highly digitalized world where everyone, including kids, carries a smartphone. Having entrusted your child with a smartphone, you can also ensure their safety on the road by adding a few smartphone apps.
With the help of these apps, you can monitor their smartphone activity, help them learn safety lessons, or simply track their location to keep them out of harm’s way. Let us take a look at some smartphone safety apps that can help keep your child safe from various threats when they are on the road.
TrueMotion Family Safe Driving
If you are the parent of a teenager, reckless driving is a big concern when your child is on the road. Teen instincts veer children towards irresponsible driving, no matter how much you may try to teach them about safe driving habits.
This is where the TrueMotion safe driving smartphone app comes into the picture. This app can not only help you track your teenage child’s driving habits but also keep them motivated to inculcate safe driving habits.
Once you install the TrueMotion app on your teen’s smartphone, it will automatically start tracking all of their driving habits and also start rating all of your teen’s trips. Not only can you see your teen’s current location but also look at how they drove in order to reach there.
To rate your teen’s driving, the app records and takes into account sudden breaks, phone usage during a ride, speeding, and other similar factors. After you complete the initial signup, you will need to tell the TrueMotion app how often your teen drives in a week.
You must ensure that you and your teen input correct information, as the app will use your inputs to arrive at a safety rating. You can add as many family members as you want and start tracking their driving habits.
The TrueMotion app can track the driving habits of all members of your family, and everyone can see how the other family members are faring in terms of their safety score. This creates a healthy competition where your teen can get the motivation to start driving safely.
All in all, the TrueMotion app offers some excellent tracking features to make sure your teen, and other family members, are driving safely. The smartphone driving safety app motivates everyone in the family to drive safely by creating a sense of competition.
