Data Budgeting with ParentShield

The simple Data Budgeting Switch in the ParentShield Portal turns the normal Monthly Data Budget that everyone is familiar with, into a Daily allowance.

ParentShield is the perfect network for teaching responsibility in the use of mobile phones and to help develop good habits. The unique ParentShield data budgeting feature is a key feature in this regard.

Turn on Daily Allowance

ParentShield is designed to promote the use of mobile phones for communication and research purposes, rather than being an entertainment or babysitting device. The Daily Data Budgeting switch that is available on all plans with inclusive data takes the remaining monthly allowance and spreads it evenly across the number of days remaining in that billing cycle. If data isn't used in one day it is recalculated and made available on future dates in the month.

Should data be required for locating the phone, the parent can simply turn data budgeting off temporarily, locate the phone, and then turn it back on.

See Usage Day-by-Day

The Data section of the Portal also displays a graph showing mobile data usage every day for the past 30 days.
