uKnowKids can help you monitor photos and images that are sent or received by your child via text messages and iMessage.
This happens automatically so long as your child's mobile device is regularly backing up to Apple iCloud.
uKnowKids can also help you monitor the photos and images that are stored on your child's Apple mobile device.
In order to monitor photos and images that are stored on your child's Apple mobile device, please do one or both of the following:
- Disable the iCloud Photo Library
Go to the Settings App on the Apple mobile device >> iCloud >> Photos >> Disable iCloud Photo Library.
When iCloud Photo Library is enabled, uKnowKids can only show you the photos in text messages and from the uKnowMobile app.
In short, one of our three methods of gathering photos will not work when iCloud Photo Library is enabled, so you should disable iCloud Photo Library.
- OPTIONAL: Install the uKnowMobile app for iOS on your child's mobile device if you want to leverage our backup methodology for obtaining photos on the target device. This is a completely optional step that provides a redundant method for obtaining photos and images in case iCloud Photo Library is enabled on the target device.
