This study examines the usage of parental control applications to protect children from online dangers and looks into the scope of control they offer and the permissions they request. Concerns regarding children's online safety have grown as their internet use has grown exponentially. Despite the availability of parental control applications, it can be difficult for parents to discover and choose the right apps due to the abundance of available options and the continuously shifting environment of app development. In order to give parents accurate information about their permissions and control features and to assist them in selecting an app, this research analyses Android parental control applications available on Google Play Store.
