With the changing of times, technology is becoming more and more intrusive in our private lives. But do your children have a right to privacy when it comes to text messages and pictures taken on their phone?
An Arizona lawmaker wants to force cell phone companies to let parents read their kids’ phone texts. An Arizona state senator says his motive is safety, not snooping. “If I have a 13-year-old being harassed via text, I can’t call and get those texts,” he said. “This bill will allow me to at least pay to see the text messages for my children.” He got it passed in committee, but it still must clear the full Senate before heading to the House.
If you want to spy on what your children are doing on their phones, you can also download a new app called PicsChecker, which allows you to monitor all the activity on your child’s phone right from your own device. The application currently available for Android smartphones, and is causing quite a stir around the country. Would you spy on what your kids are sending to one another through their phones or do your children deserve their privacy?
