uKnowKids is a new benefit of uKnow.com that fully integrates children’s social network and mobile phone activities as well as location updates into a single Parental Intelligence System. Unlike most parental software installed on home computers or laptops, uKnowKids delivers its in-depth information while, at the same time, providing great flexibility for connecting to children’s social networks and mobile phones. For example, with uKnowKids, even if your child accesses Facebook from a friend’s house, a gaming system, or a smartphone, you will still be able to review their activity, whether it is messages, images or a list of new Facebook friends. Moreover, parents don’t need a social network account of your own or even a smartphone to enjoy the benefits of uKnowKids.
Once you register, you’ll be asked to create a profile for the child you wish to monitor. You can set up profiles for up to four children. As part of this setup, you will be prompted to connect your child’s social networks to uKnowKids, including your child’s Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram accounts. To do so, you will need your child’s social network username and password. This short article provides more details on this topic. If you don’t have this information during initial setup, you can always skip this step and come back to it later.
During setup, you will also receive instructions on how to download the uKnowKids mobile app for Android and iPhone. By installing this app on the smartphone that your child uses, you’ll be able to review his or her mobile activities. You will also be able to track the location of the smartphone on the Family Location and take advantage of our product’s advanced location services.

Once you have added the social networks and/or mobile phone that you want to monitor, you will gain access to your uKnowKids online dashboard. Data will start to appear on the dashboard within a couple of hours of completing the child setup process. The more information and accounts that you provide to uKnowKids, the better the product will be able to keep you informed. In turn, this will help you guide your child in today’s digital world, keeping their safety, privacy and reputation better protected.
To this end, uKnowKids will even identify potentially inappropriate or risky situations or people that your child encounters. It will then immediately notify you via email and/or online so that you can take proper action. Be sure to configure your notification preferences within your account’s settings.
