Being a parent in a connected world

Nearly half of kids have their own smartphone by the time they’re 10 to 12*. For parents, that means worrying about who your kids are chatting with, how much time they spend browsing, or if they’re being exposed to inappropriate content. Avast Family Space gives you peace of mind by letting you know where your child is at all times, and by letting you control how they use the internet.

Always know where your child is

Let them wander without worry

Avast Family Space lets you easily check your child’s location on a GPS map, so you can always be sure they’re safe.

Be sure they arrived safely

Set up automatic alerts so you know when your child arrives at or leaves certain locations, such as home, school, or practice.

Make the internet a safer place

You can’t control the internet, but you can control how your children use it. Protect them from inappropriate content and help them learn healthy online habits.

Keep the internet age-appropriate

Choose one of four pre-set content filters based on your child’s age range, or block specific websites and apps that may be risky or inappropriate.

Help them disconnect when they need it

Nearly half of teens report being online constantly*. Use the pause internet feature to help them focus on schoolwork and get a good night’s sleep.

Make sure you can always get in touch

Not being able to get in touch with your kids is scary. Check their battery status and remind them to charge their phones so you can reach them.
