In line with Gabb Wireless's commitment to child safety and parental control, the Gabb Phone Plus intentionally has access to the internet, social media platforms, and app stores completely removed, minimizing potential distractions and exposure to inappropriate content. Despite these restrictions, the device does offer essential communication features, including unlimited call and text capabilities through Gabb Messenger, allowing children to stay connected conveniently while allowing parents to monitor their children's social interactions with automatic flagging of inappropriate content.
A standout feature of the Gabb Phone Plus is its active GPS tracking, allowing parents to monitor their child's location at all times. Additionally, the phone includes an 8MP back camera and a 5MP front camera, enabling young users to capture images.
The Gabb Phone Plus also offers access to Gabb Music, a curated music streaming service offered by Gabb Wireless, ensuring an age-appropriate musical experience for children.
Furthermore, the phone supports a curated set of optional, parent-enabled third-party apps, allowing parents to customize and expand the phone's functionalities to cater to their child's needs as they grow and mature.
Gabb Wireless, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) based in the United States, released the Gabb Phone Plus in June 2022. The company's mission is to provide a safe and responsible mobile technology experience for children and teenagers, promoting healthy relationships with technology and reducing potential risks associated with unrestricted internet access and social media exposure.
