Benefits for Parents
For most parents, determining whether the instant messaging apps their children use are safe and appropriate can be a challenging layer to digital parenting.
It is essential you invest in reliable monitoring software to protect your children from threats posed by IMs. These threats include but are not limited to the following:
Is your child about to be the new kid at school, or has their behavior changed noticeably as of late? These are just two common examples of scenarios experts say are associated with online bullying.
Unfortunately, cyberbullying can occur across any chat platform and when left unchecked — can lead to depression, anxiety, and self-harm.
Cyberbullying on instant messengers can be particularly dangerous because of several factors, including ease of access and anonymity. And because the focus of most instant messaging companies is to attract as many users as possible, little care is given to vetting new users or in monitoring what goes on in the community.
Despite the many advantages technology has brought us, the reality is that there are numerous nefarious individuals who look to abuse tech through online channels such as instant messengers, with many targeting young children and teenagers.
These online predators use instant messengers to gain access to children then attempt to obtain details such as what school they go to, who their friends are, what they look like, and even where they are at a specific time.
They may even pose as peers or an acquaintance to solicit sexually explicit images or video, and in the most dangerous cases — arrange to meet up in real life or show up at your home.
To safeguard your children from online predators, Director of the CID’s Major Cybercrime Unit Edward Labarge suggests the following:
“Never let your child have free rein on any electronic device… it is important to discuss safety and boundaries before giving access and lay out the consequences for not adhering to them.” (https://www.dvidshub.net/)
With FlexiSPY installed on your child’s computer, you get an all-in-one solution that always lets you know who your child is interacting with on IMs. Allowing you to protect them from dangerous situations when needed.
Scams & Phishing
Often, your child may be sharing the family computer to play games, do homework, or in this case — chat, send and receive attachments and multimedia via an instant messaging platform.
If your child is not careful about who they interact with online, they could be persuaded to provide remote access to your home computer by a deceiving adult or an opportunistic hacker. This is dangerous, especially if you are storing sensitive data such as your credit card information or home address into the very same computer.

This is despite the well-documented risks associated with how the use of personal instant messaging within a corporate network could potentially introduce malware into an organization.
While IM Chats can accelerate business-related interactions, they can also pose a significant threat to your company’s sensitive or proprietary data. As a result, many organizations choose to adopt an employee monitoring policy that includes monitoring software for computers.
With FlexiSPY, companies can capture and archive instant messages into a centrally managed, easily searchable repository that is stored on a web portal accessible 24/7.
