Mobile as parental control

I've been searching for a product that offers content filtering on mobile devices.  I finally found McAfee and installed on my son's phone and it works!! But, the application does not "lock" and when you go into it he can change the settings at any time.  Is there a way when any changes are made you are prompted for a password?

Re: Mobile as parental control

I don't use Family Protection for Android myself which is what I assume you refer to but I found in the FAQ section of Technical Support (Useful Links at the top of this page) instructions on using the remote Adminstrator's module to control child access.

The child should certainly not have access to those controls.

That FAQ is located HERE.

If that doesn't help I suggest contacting Technical Support (also linked above) which is free via phone or online chat.
