Pumpic is a new and reasonably improved parental control mobile application that lets parents take care of their children remotely. The app includes an extensive range of monitoring features, which on the one hand, provide all-round protection, and on the other one, make Pumpic stand out from other parental control software.
Pumpic is absolutely legal. In the iOS solution, the monitoring is made via the iCloud account, linked to the target device. As a result, the app is not installed and hence, it’s not visible. In turn, the Android version of the app is visible on the screen of the device. However, to enter Pumpic settings menu and change them, the password is needed. Thus, your kid will not be able to switch off monitoring without your permission.

“My work is closely connected with travelling. I am a single father, so I have to leave my daughters alone very often. Pumpic helps me take care of them, control what they do and where they go form anywhere. It’s a huge help for me. Really! Thanks!”
Josh G. (Orlando, Florida)
“I bought my son a new iPhone 6 in consideration of his education achievements after reading many Pumpic reviews. I know that maybe he is too young to have such an expensive device, but he did a great job, and this smartphone was what he dreamed of. I read some pumpic reviews and decided to get it. And I’m pretty satisfied with it. I thought it would only track the iPhone in case of loss, but there are so many features in addition that I can totally control my son and be sure about his safety.”
Andrew J. (Cleveland, OH)
“Great app. It helps me a lot and leaves no place for worries. I can be sure what my kids are up to, where they are, and what they do online. It is the very that thing I was looking for so long.”
