    Yes, there are multiple apps that can prevent your kid from watching adult content online. Others will even notify you when he tries to access these sites, track his/her texts,. There can be a paid version and a free version of the same app but the pay version always comes with some extras, so it depends on you whether you can spend a few dollars just to ensure the safety of your child.
    My best premium app is Funamo Its an app with a lot of features and costs around $20. It can be used on an android browser to set limits to accessible content, it comes with a safe search filter, it blocks adult related keywords/words, you can also log calls and sms and protect your kid from purchasing adult android apps.

    My best free app is

    Use an app, such as App Lock, to password protect the apps you specific to prevent use: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mobile.applock

    This will require you to enter a password every time you want to use those specific apps.

    If you want the parental control software for Android phones to restrict web pages and apps, Mobile Spy will be a nice choice. If you want to keep tab on what kids do on the phone, iKeyMonitor is the best choice!

    I found my 13 year old watching X rated movies on his Android and I put a free app called kids place on it. It restricts ALOT of what he can do, but its teaching him a lesson.

    I found MobileMinder to be great. You can block apps, websites, see who’s calling or texting your kid, also know where your child is. I have a promo code for any one interested in it which will give you 30% off after your free trial.

    The code is MMPROMO
