    I have a Samsung s10 running android 9 and want to monitor my kid's cell phone activities. They have iPhone XR's running IOS 13.1.

    Is there an app the runs across both platforms that lets me use parental settings, monitor social media, text, scheduled downtime, receive alerts and uses geofences, etc. . .

    I know there are parental controls within iPhones that I can set, but want to be able to receive alerts when something goes wrong or when geo-fences are entered and exited on my Android. Any apps that allow an Android to control an iPhone?

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    good luck in finding something like that. apple is very closed off and i would think apple would really frown on an android phone monitoring a iphone. you will be more successful just using the parental controls on the iphone.

    Welcome to Android Forums, SKC68!

    Your project would definitely be easier if all the devices were on the same OS. However, there are some Android apps that claim to do what you're asking.

    For example, Screen Time Parental Control App claims to work across all devices, however, its reviews are mixed.

    This one, xfi Locator, basically just locates devices, regardless of their OS.

    Finally, Kidslox absolutely sounds like it's the best but, again, there are mixed reviews. I think I'd start with this one and give it a good look, to see if it suits your needs.

    There are many others in the Play Store; you can search for 'iphone parental' to see a lot--some of which have nothing to do with iPhones. :thinking:
