TekNekk is available on Android. While the children’s phone devices must be Android, the child’s phone is actually controlled by accessing the Parental Remote-Control website from any electronic device (Android, IOS, tablet, laptop, or desktop). App installation on each phone is intended for device set-up purposes only. To use TekNekk, you should always go to the Parental Remote-Control Website at www.tek-nekk.com.

To start the phone set-up process, collect and lay parent’s and all children’s phones side-by-side on a table. The TekNekk app will be downloaded and set-up individually for each specific user on their own phone. Each feature must be completely set-up and all permissions accepted for the TekNekk app to function properly.
