Re: Easy access?

"The level at which FTC does not have a point is that all Amazon purchases result in an immediate email report in the account holder inbox and are clearly visible on his device."

That immediate email report is still after the fact - the purchase has been made.

The immediacy of it is also rendered irrelevant by the fact that the parent may not see that email 'immediately' if they don't happen to be using or be able to access their device for any number of reasons. They will see the emails eventually not immediately - and between the time of that purchase and eventually arriving, any number of additional purchases can be made.
