Have you ever wondered to yourself, how can I keep my family safe from the harms of the internet before? Have you ever wanted your kids to be held accountable for something that they have looked at in the past on their phones, iPads or even computers? Have you ever wanted to set those time limits onto their phones and onto their computers to where they can’t search for certain things during a certain time of the day? If so then there is a great program that you can get for your family called Accountable2You
and we were lucky enough to be able to review the family plan
as part of the Homeschool Review Crew.
When Olivia got in trouble back in May for talking to someone who she shouldn’t have been speaking to or going onto a website of where I told her not to. She didn’t understand the danger that could happen on the web. She’s too trusting and that unfortunately part of being on the Autism Spectrum. She thought that everyone was going to be nice and tell the truth no matter what we had told her to beware of and it scared me so much. I had at that point told her no getting onto the internet and took her iPod away from her as well. We had to change our passwords on all computers and on our phones too. But now I feel more at ease with having this program and account called Accountable2You in which I love. I love being able to set the time limits onto Olivia’s account so that I can keep track of what she searches on her computer and on her iPhone. I no longer have the anxiety as I did before which is a big thing for me.
is a program that you can choose from Individual, Family, Small Group and Business plans in which you can choose what will work best for you. As I stated before I did it for the family so that I can keep track of Olivia and of Jason’s activity too. I love how each device has it’s own accountability partners and how I can install it on different devices which makes me really happy as a parent! I also love the text alerts that I get with some of Olivia’s questionable activity which is good, especially after that little stunt she pulled in the spring. And I have the ability to get notified on my laptop as well which is good if I’m on it working on homework. Another nice thing about using Accountable2You is it does have GPS-Location Tracking in which right now I don’t need to use with Olivia because she is either with me or I know where she is. But if you have teenagers that are in high school and go out with friends this would be a good thing for you to have. Then of course having the time limits alerts is a good thing to have when you have kids and when you get mad at your spouse (just kidding on this one). But please note that the time limit alerts are only good if you have a family account.

I have enjoyed using the family plan and will continue to use it until the subscription is up next year. I received a 12 month subscription to be able to facilitate my review from Accountable2You and as part of the Homeschool Review Crew! All my opinions are my own!
