Kytephone is a free app that transforms any Android smartphone into a child-friendly device.

The first and only product of its kind, Kytephone is a positive parenting tool for families. It empowers children with technology safely and responsibly. Once installed, Kytephone safeguards a child's mobile experience by allowing parents to control all aspects of that phone’s use, including who the child may call and what apps they may access. Parents can also view the phone’s location in real time. Once activated, the Kytephone interface cannot be removed without parental intervention, even after rebooting the phone, so parents can rest assured knowing their kids are safe within the Kytephone playground. It is available for free download and will run on Android 2.2 or above.

Market Need

Children want to use smartphones, while parents want the ability to communicate and supervise their kids at all times. Kytephone allows kids to enjoy the benefits of smartphone usage, while granting parents peace of mind with its unique secure sandbox environment and parental controls.
