uKnowKids has an amazing product to help you monitor your child's Apple iPhones, iPads and iPods. We currently support all iPhones, iPads and iPods running an all versions of iOS 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
Here is how uKnowKids for Apple works:
Apple iCloud enables uKnowKids to monitor iMessages, SMS text messages, and MMS text messages (messages including photos) sent, received and deleted; phone calls made, received and missed; iOS contacts; installed mobile applications; and photos / videos shared via iMessage.
Apple iCloud is crucial to uKnowKids' support of Apple mobile devices because this is how we obtain 99% of the data that you care about.
You will need your child’s Apple iCloud login credentials, and Apple's iCloud Backup must be enabled on the child’s Apple device.
The uKnowMobile app for Apple iOS provides uKnowKids with device location and photos taken with the iOS device.
The uKnowMobile app for iOS is an OPTIONAL, complementary application that supports your Apple iCloud connection.
You may install the uKnowMobile app for Apple iOS on your child’s Apple iOS device via the Apple App Store. Again, this is optional and not required for uKnowKids for Apple to help you monitor text messages, iMessages, calls, apps, contacts, etc...
The most important component of uKnowKids for Apple is our connection to your child's Apple iCloud account and the presence of an up-to-date iCloud backup for your child's device. This provides uKnowKids with ALL of the information we will need to help you monitor your child's mobile devices with the exception of device location.
The bottom-line is that we need you to connect your child's Apple iCloud account to uKnowKids. That is the most important step here.
The uKnowMobile app is an OPTIONAL, complementary, supporting application that helps enhance the uKnowKids for Apple service. If location data is not important to you, you do not have to install the uKnowMobile app for iOS on your child's phone.
