    If we compare these two parental control apps, we will realize that the features provided by the Kidslox are very less as compared to the KidsGuard Pro. It provides a number features to its users. Some of the comparison are done below for better understanding.

    Monitor Social Media Apps

    Kidslox does not provides facility to parents to watch their kid’s activities on social media.

    As compared to this KidsGuard provides the parents a dashboard where they can get the details of social media apps installed in kids’ device.

    And also, parents can watch what they are sharing and receiving on their accounts like pictures, videos and chatting even also.

    Real-time Location Tracking

    Both the applications provide the facility to check the current location to parents of their children but as compared to the Kidslox, this facility is more accurate and precise by the KidsGuard Pro for Android.

    Real-time location tracking facility by the KidsGuard Pro is provided while Kidslox can only share the current location and the history.

    Tracking Income & Outcome Calls

    Kidslox app has a disadvantage that it does not track the messages and calls of the children for their parents while KidsGuard Pro is the best choice for this as it provides all the possible facilities like incoming and outgoing call record.

    Not only the call record but also the voice talk is also being recorded by the KidsGuard Pro so that parents must know what their children are talking about and with whom.


    KidsGuard Pro for Android Features

    • Track cell phone location in real time and view location history
    • Check all incoming and outgoing calls & SMS
    • Spy on social media apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Viber, WeChat and more
    • Remotely access the files on the target phone, like contacts, photos, call logs, etc.

    Part 7. Final Verdict

    From all above discussion, we have discussed all the advanced features of parental control app Kidslox, so there are a lot of essential elements and features that are missing and should must be the part of it.

    Although it is a good app for parental control but as compared to other applications this application must add on more features for parents to keep an eye on their children’s activities from different factors like their social media activities, chatting and call records.

    The basic purpose of parents to use such applications is safe their children from each and every side parents can through these latest technologies.
