Kakatu is a child protection app that lets parents control which apps their children can access on a gadget. They can also block incoming calls, set a timer for usage and you can monitor your child's activity in parent mode.  

What sets Kakatu apart from other apps in this category is its educational approach. Instead of just the tools, they also offer parents content with advice on how to build healthy relationships with their children, and how to educate them about media use.

The app was first released in December 2014. According to the company, 46,000 users have downloaded the app, with more than half of them active on a monthly basis.
