Jiminy is an app that helps parents learn more about their children’s lives, with alerts, fun facts, and a weekly report. We help parents be more aware of the good and the bad things happening on their child’s phone. We do that by combining expertise in clinical psychology, education, and advanced machine learning and big data.
Our app also provides resources that answer theoretical questions like “can Snapchat be monitored by parents?” and practical questions like “how can parents monitor Instagram?”
