Are you asking about the moral side of the question or about the technical one? Speaking about technical one - there're a lot of spy apps for you to use. Morally... well, I think that it's OK, because you have the right to know and you need to influence your child from time to time.

That's one bad app.

Apple does not allow third-party apps to do that so your choice is a very poor one. If the user is that young you should not provide such a tool. Get them a plain old phone until they can get their own.

Not good to track phone

I don't think it is good to track your son's phone. It is like cheating. Just my opinion.

it's ok

I believe this is an important issue to reply.

I believed it's ok to install mobile spyware to your son smartphone. Discuss it with your teen and explain the advantages and disadvantages of having tracking software on their mobile phone.

In today's environment I think it is a must for every parent to have a tool that will help them keep their kids safe. Social media and internet, there are a lot of criminals lurking there pretending to be kids. I highly recommend that we always guide our kids in using their cell phone.
