With more than 1.5 billion active users as of 2017, Whatsapp is one of the most popular apps to keep up with loved ones.
And while it’s highly efficient when it comes to keeping ourselves up-to-date with family and friends, it’s also a double-edged sword.
This is especially true for parents. According to a survey, 70% of teens routinely hide their online activities from their parents.
And while organizations have been taking the right measures to educate teens and parents about the consequences of cyberbullying, the problem still exists.
The Blue Whale challenge resulted in up to 130 teenage suicides that shocked the world. But even afterwards, teenagers became victims of other challenges that started through WhatsApp.
And while it’s easy to think, “Why didn’t they block the number?” the problem was more difficult than that. The anonymous messages would start with things like, “I know everything about you” or “Do XYZ or I will share your personal information online.”
Keeping Your Loved Ones Safe Online:
The thought of a loved one—especially if it’s your child—falling prey to cyberbullying is scary. Often parents are unaware of what their child does online.
But is there a way to recover WhatsApp message? Yes, there is.
This is where we come in.
The Benefits of PhoneSpector:
PhoneSpector aims to help educate parents around the world about child safety and the measures parents can take to keep their children safe.

You can easily track the location of your child without their knowledge with our software. Furthermore, we can help you recover deleted text messages, videos, photos, WhatsApp data, and anything else that your child is hiding from you.
The problem isn’t just with WhatsApp but it’s common with every social media app teenagers use. In fact, Snapchat—another popular app—has been reported to harbor sex trafficking, prostitution, child-porn, and ‘sextortion’ among other things.
Luckily, WhatsApp has taken notice of the problem and has been providing its users with tips to stay safe online.
Remember that you can never be too careful and trust anyone.
If you’re afraid your child is being harassed by an online predator, you can try and talk to them. But it is likely they won’t come clean. In that case, you should use a trusted parental monitoring app to help you out.
