• BlackBerry 10 Parental Controls Shown


    A couple of weeks ago BlackBerryOS.com writer, John Reid, wrote an excellent article about an idea he had. He called it the BlackBerry Home Manager. A great read and very intelligent thinking for protecting kids in the age of mobile technology. I know that I want my two boys, ages 12 and 10, to be safe when they use smartphones. And we as parents can enable BlackBerry parental controls on our OS 6,7 and 7.1 phones. If you didn't know about them, you should enable them right away on your kids phones. As a news videographer, I cannot tell you how many times I've covered stories of kids exploited and abused because of inappropriate cell phone use.

    Well today images of BlackBerry 10's Parental Controls came out. The parental controls shown on the BlackBerry 10 platform are pretty extensive. From the onset, you can restrict incoming calls and texts from contact lists, disable apps like Facebook, Twitter, etc. You can turn off access to the video camera and the photo camera as well as the ability to upload to You Tube and other media sharing sites.


    Another wonderful thing that the BlackBerry 10 parental controls offer is the ability to restrict BlackBerry World access, Internet access and location information. All in all, this is a really wonderful step by RIM to give parents such choices on what to allow their kids to be able to have access to. Even in this modern day and age, the saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.." resounds more loudly than ever.


    There may be bickering between BlackBerry, iPhone and Android users as what is the best phone for blah, blah, blah. There is one universal though that should be agreed upon between us all. That protection of our children in the cyber age is of the utmost importance and relevance.
