“Hi Mary, where are you? Dad is worried as it’s getting late”.

“I’m at Stephanie’s house and I’ll leave in a bit”. Sound familiar?

How do you track children? Until recently, keeping track of your children has been quite a difficult task, especially in case of an emergency. Even though most children have mobile phones nowadays, you can never really be sure where they are, even if you do call and ask them.

This is where mobile tracking comes in. You can now track children with Mobile Device Management. By installing the 2X MDM app on your child’s (or children’s) phone, you can pinpoint exactly where he/she is, remotely. So next time little Johnny tells you he’s on his way home, you can see if he is yourself.

As you may know, Android is Google’s operating system for mobile phones. It was launched as an open-source alternative to Apple’s iPhone OS, Windows Mobile, and Nokia’s Symbian. Because of its open-source nature, there are thousands of apps available for it. A phone running Android can be easily set up to do pretty much anything, provided you have the right app for it.

The 2X MDM Android app works great when it comes to tracking, as it uses the phone’s in-built GPS functionality to figure out where the user of the mobile device. Basically, when you download and install the 2X MDM app, you need to add the mobile phone to your 2X MDM account. Once you’ve done that, you get access to the dashboard from where you can track the location of the phone remotely, using Google Maps. This is a great tool for keeping track of your kids as the tracking information is updated in real time.

A few years ago, only James Bond had such high-tech tracking systems. Today, 2X MDM has made finding and tracking your children easy. 2X MDM is free to use. In fact, if you can add up to 100 Android mobile devices, being able to find and track each and every one of them in real time. You’ll be amazed at the accuracy of Android tracking from 2X MDM, as it can pinpoint the location of any connected Android phone exactly. If you are anxious where your phone (or rather, its user) is, 2X MDM is for you!

Android tracking apps to track children have various costs related to them. The entry-level apps are fairly cheap and remain visible. This means that if you want to track your children, they would know that they are being tracked. If you want the app to stay hidden in the background, you will have to shell out a bit more – somewhere in the range of $50 to $150. For this price, you will get a high-tech tracking app that will seem straight out of a James Bond movie. Your choice of app would depend on whether you want your kid(s) to know that they are being tracked. Alternatively, you can sign up for a 2X MDM account, connect all your children’s Android phones to your new account, and all for the price of nothing, zero, zilch.

We designed the 2X MDM app to be hidden, for we understand just how clever little ones can be. Kids nowadays are far cleverer than we give them credit for and it would be only a matter of time before they realised you were tracking them via the app. To stop mummy and daddy from tracking them, all they would need to do would be to uninstall the app.
