Teensafe Parental Control App, from $9.99 a month (subscription)
The phone tracker app allows real-time location and lets parents know exactly how kids are using their mobile phones.
However, many experts warn against using this type of ‘monitoring software’ and advise not to ‘breach a child’s trust’ by effectively spying on them.

It is currently used by millions of parents in over 190 countries worldwide.
