Teensafe is an online service which allows parents to monitor their child’s phone or tablet activity, without having to touch the device itself.

Based in California, Teensafe has been running in the US for over 3 years, but was only introduced into Australia this year. 

Next week, the CEO of Teensafe, Rawdon Messenger is coming to Australia to speak about concerns of whether monitoring a child’s activity is spying or protecting them.

Panorama spoke to Rawdon about Teensafe as well as Stacey Joyce, the Senior Education Advisor from Cybersmart in Australia.
