We hope you’re having a wonderful summer, full of fun, quality family time and even a few moments to relax. At MamaBear we’ve worked hard all summer to get you ready for back-to-school with a ton of new features to protect and connect your family and give you the peace of mind parents deserve.  Start this school year giving your kids the freedom they want and use MamaBear to ease your worry with responsible parental supervision. We’ve added the new features you’ve asked for, and still deliver it all in your convenient Family Newsfeed right on your mobile phone.

Here’s What’s New

Text Message Monitoring

If your child is using an Android device you can now see all of their incoming and outgoing text messages. Mom and Dad can use any phone, iPhone or Android. This has been our top feature request and it’s free! Simply go to your child’s profile settings and tap “text alerts.” Then tap “Turn On” in the top right hand corner.

YouTube Video Monitoring

Now you can see what your child has been viewing on YouTube, the world’s most used video and music site among teenagers. See their viewing history right from your Family Newsfeed anytime.

More Social

We’ve added the popular site Tumblr to the list of social monitoring. Go to your child’s MamaBear Settings profile and set up this along with Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
