How to Use MMGuardian for iPhone/iPad

The application must be registered before it will start functioning and your trial period can commence. The following information is entered in the registration screen:


Your choice of password. If you already have an MMGuardian account, please enter your existing password.

Password Confirmation:

Repeat the password!

Parent Email Address:

This will be your MMGuardian account name. Please use an email account that your child does not have access to as it’s used for things such as password recovery and reset. If you already have an MMGuardian account, please enter your existing email address.

Enter the information described above and then tap on the Register button.

The Sync App, downloadable from the MMGuardian server,  is required if you wish to get message reports from your child’s iPhone and should be installed onto your own computer.

Once set up, when your child’s iPhone or iPad connects to the same WiFi network that you also use for your home computer, the app will collect the messages from your child’s device. These messages will then be available for you to view either in the MMGuardian Parent App installed on your own phone, or at the MMGuardian web portal.

For full information please see: Message Reports for iPhone

The last known and historical locations can be viewed on a map. Tap the Update Location button to get the device’s current location.

Disable all downloaded apps based on a pre-defined schedule or as required.

Prevent your child from accessing websites that are not appropriate for children, using the Web Filter function.

Your child must use the MMGuardian Safe Browser to browse the internet.

To enable Web Filter, select Web Filter from the menu, then tap the on/off button to turn it on.

Select the appropriate child age range. This will configure the Web Filter with default allow or block settings for each of the many categories that the web filter uses. The lower the age range, the more restrictive the default settings will be.

You may view and edit the category settings to match your specific needs.

Overrides can also be created. These are specific web site URLs (addresses) that should always be allowed or blocked and will ‘override’ the site’s categorisation.
