Summer is winding down, which means back-to-school season is in full swing! As a mom who works outside the home, I look to Boost Mobile’s Safe & Found offering to keep my family safe and connected during this busy time of the year … and beyond.

Safe & Found is an industry-leading family location and parental controls solution that helps you spend less time worrying and more time enjoying life. Whether making sure your kids got home from school or sharing your location with a family member when at a crowded baseball game, Boost Safe & Found helps you keep tabs of your family 24/7.

Safe & Found – powered by Smith Micro Software – provides the following easy-to-use features:

  • Family Location and Security: Locate your family on your smartphone or the web in real time with the option to wipe or lock a device if lost or stolen.
  • Geo-Fencing: Create and modify “safety zones” to receive auto-notifications when a family member enters or leaves the designated area.
  • Parental Controls: Control app usage, downloads and installs, and restrict incoming email and calls.
  • Family Alert: A convenient SOS button immediately alerts all family members to your location.

We have always been a leader in offering best-in-class services that help keep families safe and connected, and I’m thrilled to share that Boost Safe & Found already has more than 2,500 downloads and a 4.4-star rating on Google Play store. We love reading feedback from our fans, and my favorite comes from a customer who is using the app to monitor his 13-year-old daughter’s phone activity and restrict social media usage on weeknights.

With a multitude of helpful services in a single, streamlined application, Safe & Found is part of Boost Mobile’s commitment to providing prepaid customers a robust and affordable mobile experience. Safe & Found is available for Android and iOS customers for $7 per month, as part of a comprehensive mobile app subscription.
