Parental Controls for BlackBerry has been updated to v18.104.22.168 in App World! This update adds support for OS 5, OS 6+ is still on version 22.214.171.124 in App World. Parental Controls is an application that provides parents and guardians simple options to restrict access to specific BlackBerry functions, features and applications such as the Browser and Text Messaging.
A couple of examples of the restrictions you can set by going to Options -> Security -> Parental Controls are:
- Camera – A control to disable use of the camera for both still pictures and video. Upon attempting to launch the Camera application, the user would be provided with the message “Camera has been blocked.”
- Phone – Limit the phone to receive calls only from phone numbers that exist in the Contacts application. This feature will block incoming phone calls from unknown callers.
