Phone software allows access to Kid's mobiles

A revolutionary new piece of mobile phone software which can give parents control over what photographs and videos their children can download to their handsets is being launched by a Glasgow-based web security firm.

Netintelligence, which last year won a UK industry award for its web monitoring and paedophile alert 'Safekeeper' software, has created Netintelligence Mobile – a world-first handset-based programme allowing parents to set detailed parameters on their children's phone use.

Mobile phone file sharing hit the headlines last week after Hawick High School head teacher Alan Williamson was the victim of a happy slap assault; the previous week a young footballer appeared in court after filming and distributing mobile phone footage of a 14-year-old having sex at a party.

What is your opinion on such software? Do you agree that parents should be able to monitor their children's activities using mobile phones? Or do you think it's a breach of privacy? Personally I believe that it's a step towards parents taking responsibility for their minors. Comments welcome..
