SmartPhone Monitoring Service
Unforeseeable just a few years ago, sexting has emerged as a disturbing trend among today's teenagers - one with sobering legal consequences and socially damaging outcomes. Mobile Media Guard is a smartphone monitoring service designed to help parents...
Parents can deploy the Mobile Media Guard service to safeguard their children against the unintended consequences of sexting which, as seen time and time again, can quickly escalate into embarrassing and dangerous situations.
Deter the Exchange of Inappropriate Content
Teenagers are less likely to exchange inappropriate content on their smartphones if they know their parents can monitor media content from a remote website, as is the case with Mobile Media Guard. This same logic applies to friends who may be tempted to send images to your son or daughter.
Gain Peace of Mind
With remote access to captured media content and customizable alert notifications, parents can rest assured that they have taken measures to proactively safeguard their children by using Mobile Media Guard.
WHY TAKE SEXTING SERIOUSLY:
According a survey by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy 20 percent of teenagers have either sent or posted nude or semi-nude pictures or videos of themselves, while 48 percent admitting to have received sexually suggestive messages.
In Florida, an 18-year-old male was sentenced to five years probation and required by state law to register as a sex offender after he sent a naked photo of his 16-year-old girlfriend to dozens of her friend and family members.
In Wisconsin, a 14 year old boy spent a year in juvenile detention after coercing underaged girls into sending him sexually explicit photos of themselves, which he in turn used as blackmail to get the girls to send additional images.
Falling under the umbrella of child pornography, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wyoming have prosecuted for charges related to sexting. At least 20 other states are considering criminalizing the act too.
A 13-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy from Valparaiso, IN were charged with possession of child pornography and child exploitation after it was discovered they were using their cell phones to exchange nude pictures of themselves with each other.
Middle schools and high schools, as well as entire school districts, are beginning to ban sexting. Rule enforcements have led to suspensions and expulsions.
Studies indicate that teenage sexting images are ending up in pedophile collections and, in some cases, pedophiles are using the images to seek out the teenagers. Frequently, these images are used against teenagers (by the pedophile) to solicit more images or even sexual contact.
