Episode 1633 (2:09:48)

Rich from Riverside, CA
Verizon Smart Family

Rich needs to monitor his son's text messages. Is there an app for that? Leo says that there are circumstances when this is critical. For Android, it's easy to do. But if he's tech-savvy, he can probably find out pretty easily that he is being monitored. Rich may want to check with the phone company and see if they can help. Ideally, if you can do it without an app on his phone, that would be a better idea. Check out Verizon's Smart Family: they have monitoring tools that may be of help.
