Parents, how often do you worry about your teenager when they hop in their car to head out to the movies or the mall? Are they distracted while driving? Are they texting while driving?

AT&T has just the app for you to help curb the urge to text and drive. AT&T DriveMode  can automatically start when it registers that the vehicle has reached 25 MPH and turns off after it is certain the vehicle has stopped. If someone texts your son or daughter while the app is on, an auto reply message* is sent to your teen’s friends letting them know their friend is driving.

And the app just launched its latest enhancement—Parental Alerts.  This enhancement will alert you when your teen turns the app off and has full access to the phone.  It can also send an alert if Auto-mode or GPS is disabled or a new contact is added to the Allow List.

To learn more about the app and these latest enhancements, visit or check out this video.

Remember no text is worth a life...It Can Wait®.
