How to Start with Parentaler?

Parentaler — Best Android Parental Control App

Parentaler is one of the most trusted solutions for parents because it offers a wide variety of services. With free options, you might only be able to gain access to one’s iCloud or Android files. But with Parentaler, you unlock a lot of features when you access a phone remotely.

Sign In on the Parentaler Website

When you first visit Parentaler’s website, you get a list of questions to answer. These questions are nothing but a way to recommend the best Parentaler apps for you. If you’re not sure about the process, here is the list of questions that you will be asked before you can remote access devices.


For example:

  • What is your child’s name?
  • What is the purpose of using the application?
  • Have you noticed any signs that your child may be hiding something from you, becoming secretive, or withdrawing?
  • Do you think that your child should spend less time on the phone and/or playing games?
  • Do you want to protect your child from visiting 18+ sites?
  • Are you sure that you know all of your child’s online pen pals, and that they are not hiding anyone from you?
  • Does your child get home safely?
  • Would you like to be notified about your child’s whereabouts or if your child is in a place where he/she is not allowed to be?
  • Would you like to know all the phone numbers for calling and texting your child?

You can choose to answer these questions with a ‘Yes’, ‘No’, or ‘I can’t answer the question’. Once you answer all the questions, Parentaler will recommend the best feature match for you that will allow you to remotely access Android phone. Some of these features also allow you to remotely control the Android phone from another phone, such as restricting specific sites.

Choose the Subscription Plan and Purchase

Under the best-recommended features, you will see a button that allows you to choose your plan. Parentaler offers two plans: The Standard Plan and the Family Kit. You can subscribe to the Standard plan for 1 month, 3 months, or a year. You get the best deal when you subscribe to a yearly package.


The Family Kit is for accessing three devices at once. Although the plan is more expensive than the Standard Plan, you get the option to choose a yearly package and save a lot per month.

Additional Way to Remotely Access an Android Phone

The TeamViewer app is also a way to remotely access an Android phone. But the drawback is that this kind of monitoring is not discreet. The app icon is visible on the screen; thus, you can access the phone only with their consent. Also, it’s not working if the phone is blocked and a session ends if the phone is restarted. However, it may still work out as an alternative solution:

  1. Open your TeamViewer.
  2. Go to the Remote Control tab.
  3. Enter the remote device’s TeamViewer ID and Connect.
  4. Enter the password displayed on the remote device’s TeamViewer and press Log On.
  5. Done! You are now connected to the remote device.


Now that you know how to access Android phone remotely and how to control another phone from your phone, we hope it will help you maintain a watchful eye on your kids and make sure they are not involved in harmful activities or become victims of cyberattacks.
