Facebook Parental Controls

Has someone ever started a fake facebook using your name? How do you make it stop?

Facebook Parental Controls

Postby GaryKroul » Wed May 09, 2012 2:14 pm

I have 2 daughters that are 11 and 13 and they both want to be on the internet to check their facebook every second of the day. I would like to see what they have been talking about with their friends but I want to do it from a distance. I think it would be better if they thought they had freedoms but I was checking in periodically to make sure they werent getting involved in something that I thought they couldnt handle on their own. Just basic cyber-bullying and predators is what I would like to protect them from. I would like to contact facebook and see if they will give me a master password or some kind of access to their accounts to check up on things. Is this even possible? Can anyone assist me in anyway? Thank you

I would be very careful when you are doing this because it could backfire in your face. If you daughters find out that you are spying on them they could either get better at hiding things or get very angry and it could effect your relationship in a negative way. I believe you can get products from Best Buy or other PC stores and find software that you can install on your computer and monitor everything that is visited and spoken about. This can be very helpful for the exact situation that you want, watching froma distance to to make sure they dont get in over their head.

I think it is a good idea to keep tabs on your children because you dont want something to happen then be blaming yourself for not being a better parent and less like the friend. It is your job to keep them out of harms way until they are an adult so if that means monitoring their internet time then so be it.

I dont think you would even have to do it through facebook you can go to your local computer store and pick up software that records everything that is going on when someone uses the computer. It will record every keystroke and have a history of the websites visited and who contacted who. They are relatively cheap and very useful especially if you have teenage girls.

I don't think that there are parental controls to make facebook as child-friendly as possible. But I do think you can install some software that is available in the market that pertains to protecting privacy and giving a little bit of content control while using the internet.

I wouldnt allow the 11 year old on facebook and I would keep a very close eye on the teenager. You will be able to keep a better eye on the teenager if she is the only one on there. The 11 year old would not take the warnings seriously and might get caught up in a bad deal if you allow her on there.

If I had a child that was old enough to be on facebook I would make sure that I secured everything before allowing them access. I plan on filtering a lot of stuff from my child and I will explain things when I see fit.

Gary,

You can have software installed on your computer that will monitor everything that your daughter do including what they type and where. Contacting facebook would be a waste of your time. Having that software will tell you what their password is anyway because it monitors the keystrokes so it can be obtained through your master password to the spyware software.

Knowing their passwords is just standard now because of all the endless horrors on the web.
