Abstract

Parental control software has been one approach for promoting adolescent online safety, but there is still some ambiguity in the adoption patterns and perceptions of technical mediation for teens' mobile devices. We have collected empirical data from a paired sample of 215 parents and teens. We found that overall usage of technical mediation for mobile devices is low and that parents' and teens' perceptions about the frequency of use are not significantly different. We discuss the implications of our findings and opportunities of future research.
