Tips & Tricks


Where many features of different parental apps are discussed on different platforms, some very important ones are ignored considering them trivial. One of these examples is the amazing panic alert feature offered by the FamilyTime app. 

According to my point of view, it is one of the most important features that has to be recognized by parents. When someone talks about the parental control app, the first thing that comes to your mind is digital controls, right? Yes, that’s true, almost all of the apps are made with digital activities as the main target. But, FamilyTime app marks its distinction here. Where it provides excellent monitoring features for all the digital activities, it covers other domains of a child’s life, too. For instance, it has geofencing features to stop children from going to undesirable places and it has teen safe drive features to train kids to be responsible drivers. Likewise, it offers its users location tracking features that help parents to keep a record of the places their kids visit. And in this article, we will be talking about our most favorite, panic alert feature. 

Safety comes at the top and for that, you have to have this feature on your phone. Here are the four ways it can help you.  


A few days ago, there was news about three kids who got missing in Texas woods. Every other day, we listen to such news. Training your kids and telling them what they should do in such situations is the best practice. But what is even better that they can do is send you a panic alert. 

What does it do?

With the FamilyTime app in your and your kids’ phone, they will have access to the SOS button right on the dashboard of their screen. With just a single tap, they can send you a notification that they are in an emergency. Along with that notification, you get their location too. So, you can reach them immediately without any hassle. Your kids will not be lost for days as we hear others’ stories. You can rescue them instantly through this app. 


Just like many children get lost, more and more of them are being kidnapped every other day. In this digital era, it is very easy for predators to track your children. Sex predators, kidnappers, and human traffickers have no different faces, and day by day, they are doing these crimes more tactfully.

FamilyTime has helped many parents to save their kids from such dangers. For instance, a survey revealed it saves every seven out of ten kids from predators. While training your kids about how to deal with danger and how to identify the suspect, tell them to reach out to you for help through SOS alert immediately. It is not just a precautionary measure, it is the need of the hour. 


School is a big challenge nowadays. It is not only a place where kids get their education, but they face harassment, bullying, and discrimination too. These things can cause immeasurable damage to kids’ personalities so be extra careful to know if your child is passing through any such problem at school. There are multiple features on FamilyTime that can help you find out what is going on in their lives. 

But, an SOS alert can help you to save them from such a situation. Never let them be a victim of bullying or any discrimination as it can leave many problems and complexes in their personality. Knowing that you are just a click away from them they can deal with such challenges more confidently and boldly. 


Worrying about your kids’ whereabouts is natural. They can be a part of some bad company at some unwanted places or they can be in a difficulty. You can track their location anytime from the app and get to them. But, in case you are not conscious about it and your kids are in an emergency, the panic alert button will serve the purpose. It will give you even quicker access to their location. 

So, this was just about the SOS or panic alerts feature of FamilyTime. There are a lot of features that you can check out on its official website. moreover, you can download the app from App Store or Play Store if you want.
