If you have the joy of having children, there are times where you’ve been worried about them. The Internet has unfortunately become a place filled up with child predators. A survey from Symantec showed that 47% of children have received e-mails with links to pornographic websites. These types of threats are now moving to our cell phones and this is where Radar can help.
Radar is a new software/service that lets parents monitor incoming calls on their child’s BlackBerry. When your kid receives an incoming phone call from someone not present on your approved list, you receive a text message on your BlackBerry informing you in real time of what’s happening. All the notifications are also available on the Internet so you can easily manage the account from the web. On top of controlling a master contact list, you can also monitor email activity as well as instant messaging.
There is no doubt that this type of service will become popular. With GPS being available on more and more phones, we can imagine new services such as tracking the location of BlackBerry users, defining a geographical zone they should not leave, monitoring speed while driving, better control of phone usage, etc…
Radar is available for the BlackBerry Pearl for about $10 a month.
