Monitor Text and
Call History

Read texts and monitor calls as your child learns appropriate communication – without having to ask them to hand over their phone. Even deleted texts still show up and you can limit sending or receiving images in text messages.

Hundreds of vetted Apps

We’ve done the research for you on which apps might raise concerns and why, making it easy to decide which to add to your child’s device. No social media apps, addictive games, or ad-driven apps.


GPS Locator for peace of mind

Find your child on the map and know where they are and have been recently.


Manage screen
time with schedules

Determine which apps and contacts are available when. Your child can take the phone to school or even to bed because you can limit functionality for these times, to just an alarm clock for example.


Set tasks to build independence

Routines give your child a checklist of tasks to complete based on the time of day (getting ready, going to sports, doing homework or chores) that they check off on their phone.


The phone that helps kids learn healthy digital habits

Pinwheel gives you options so your child can use their phone unsupervised, without worrying you.
