A teenager or an underage person would ask the question ” Can my parents see what apps I downloaded?”. Until your parents have physical access to your phone, they won’t be able see which apps you have downloaded or deleted.
Can my parents see which apps I have downloaded?
If an app was purchased, your parents may be able to see it on the card or phone bill. You can take precautions if your parents do not want to see the apps that you have downloaded.
Before downloading an app, erase your history. Once you’re done with the app, immediately delete it. The app will not be logged in to the phone’s account so your parents won’t find out.
To download any app you don’t want your parents to know about, you can create a separate account for your phone. This will ensure that your details are not uploaded directly to your account.
Alternatively you can use AppLock for Android and iOS. You will have access to all apps and their functionality without having to alert your parents.
You can also hide apps from your phone. Click on the three vertical dots at the top of the app drawer. Select the Home Screen Settings option. Click on the Hide App option. The list of available apps will appear. To hide the apps, select them and click the Apply button.
Don’t download anything that isn’t appropriate. You can read reviews before you download an app to ensure that you are not rebuked, even if your parents discover the apps.
Can my parents see on the phone bill what apps I have downloaded?
The phone bill doesn’t show information about specific app downloads. It does however give a breakdown of data usage, calls and text messages. If you have an iCloud account, your parents will be able access it to view the content and apps on your phone.
If you’re curious, the search history will appear on your phone bill. It is not.
