|If you have teenagers, you may be familiar with late nights waiting by the front door for your kids to come home. The worst feeling in parenting is when you have no way of knowing whether your children are safe.|
That's why it's important to cultivate a strong sense of trust between parent and child. That means that good communication is vital. But if you need extra security, you can always track your kids' location through their smartphone's GPS.
Zentracker is a simple, free way to keep tabs on your kids all day, every day. You'll have to install Google Latitudes on each of their phones, and send tracking requests to their email address.
Once you've done that and created a Zentracker account, you can view their real-time location on your computer. You can also define known places and safe zones and have alerts sent when they leave them.
A free Zentracker account lets you track up to two mobile devices. The premium, paid account allows up to six, and unlocks other features such as email, Twitter and text message alerts.
