eKavach was the original motivation for me to start a new category on the blog for Digital Parenting (Click here to read our post on eKavach and Digital Parenting). With today’s kids learning to operate a smartphone before they are potty trained, we need to be aware and educated about parenting this digital generation.
Cyberbullying, Cyberstalking and Internet addiction are just a few of the threats our kids are facing on the Internet. Online safety of our kids needs to be a priority with every parent. That’s why it gives me so much pleasure to introduce you to eKavach PRO. An updated version of the first version of the app which has many more important features for positive parenting of our internet-savvy kids.
eKavach, as you might know, is India’s No.1 Digital Parenting Application, which helps parents analyze the online activities of their kids and empower parents to make better decisions about the online safety of their kids. Let’s take a quick recap of the features of eKavach version 1.0 before I introduce you to the useful and unique features of eKavach PRO.

Even if you are disconnected from the Internet, you will keep receiving notifications via SMS. The notifications will be categorized as ‘urgent’, ‘alert’ or ‘information.
Tired of asking your kids to put down their tabs and phones on the dinner table? Simply define family time on eKavach and all Internet and application access will be blocked for that period of time. All apps and Internet also cease to work after SLEEP TIME and are activated only at the defined WAKE UP TIME. Enjoy your family time without gadgets!
