Sprint unveils new family safety service: Safe & Found

Techstination feature for Thursday, November 9, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Sprint subscribers have a new option to help them keep track of family members.   It’s a service called Safe and Found.    Product Manager Mark Chan says the idea is to give parents peace of mind…

“Specifically, a big portion of the product is a location product.  So it allows you to locate your family members and see where they’re at.  The other set of products that we have included in this are a bunch of what we call parental controls.  So as a parent you can set your child’s phone to block unwanted Web sites from appearing on there or to control or limit the usage of applications on the child’s device.”

Subscribers can try Safe and Found free for fifteen days.    After that the service is priced at 6.99 per month.   You can find more at
