POLICY: The owner or admin of all electronic devices should be the mother (in most cases). yes, tech geek dads must relinquish control to their wives.
Technology must include the following:
- Filtering Software - prevent access to inappropriate sites
- Accountability software - not just a logger, track every internet site you visit and sends a weekly report to your accountability partner. It removes the anonymity. If someone attempts to uninstall the software, the accountability partner is notified.
List of accountability software - http://www.urbanministry.org/wiki/accountability-software
- Remove access to Safari, Youtube, App Store (through app store they can get another browser). for details http://www.quittingpornguy.com/2009/03/quitting-iphone-porn.html
- Install Filtered browsers for iphone (Example: http://www.bsecure.com/)
- Install accountbility software for iphone (waiting for x3watch and convenanteyes to get approved by apple)
Conclusion: One person should have the ultimate authority on every device, including mobile. Make it mom or some other trustworthy person. Accountability software sends them weekly or biweekly reports of chats, emails and sites visited.
