OurPact expands patented offering to families

iOS parental control app OurPact has released an Android device management, the company said.

OurPact is a free application enabling parents to remotely manage their children´s access to Internet and third-party apps. The patented platform operates on Wi-Fi and all cellular connection speeds, allowing parents to individually manage the screen time habits of their children remotely, and instantly.

Until now, ParentsWare, the company behind OurPact, operated exclusively within the Apple ecosystem. This meant that parents on iOS devices — iPhones, iPads, or iPod touches — were able to manage kids only on iOS devices. Now, parents on iOS will now be able to manage children on Android devices as well.

In the past two months, OurPact´s user base has doubled to over 340,000 users. Today´s advance into Android, which holds 85 percent of the global mobile market, extends their reach to millions.

An OurPact app allowing management from Android parent devices is currently in development, and is slated for release in the near future. In the meantime, Android management with OurPact is free to use and available in over 100 countries. Child devices on Android 4.1 or newer can find the application in the Google Play Store.
