  • Do not download this app!!!!

    By xMankillax
    I downloaded this app and signed in and looked at the features, then I read reviews about this app and none of them were wrong about it, do not download this app! I signed in and tried closing the account because people said it messes up the cellular data on their children’s phone so I did that and my own data stopped working so I had to chat to at&t for at least 45 minutes and explained I had to close this app on my line! I asked AT&T tech to do it for me since the app was so confusing and he gladly helped me! Thanks to at&t tech I’ve been helped with problems I should have never had if I would’ve listened to the reviews first. Trust me I just logged in for about 30 second and did not click anything and then I logged out and poof my service was not working.
  • Listen to the reviews

    By Lvfd623
    Downloaded app and put on one of my phones. 2 days later, internet doesn’t work. I canceled the service through the app, and still won’t work. On phone with att and they do not have access to the Accra to make changes. Freaking amazing. Should have listen to the reviews.
  • Needs improvement

    By Alizemac2011
    This app works fine for limits as far as monitoring logs it doesn’t work. Half the time it only shows call and I need to see who my minor child has texting him. Shame a tech company can have an app so useless GET WITH it or don’t even promote this app it’s horrible and NOT reliable info
  • Suggestions

    By Ashok agrawal
    1. Should be free for At&T users 2. Should not require reboot after data restriction is disabled 3. Should allow text when data is restricted

    We got my daughter a new phone and now it’s. It showing texts or calls. If I’m paying for this app it needs to show
  • Don’t download app from itunes

    By jnusmrk
    This will completely zap your phone from having data.... AT ALL!
  • Updates would help!

    By JYSH85
    This app needs an update badly. It shuts down within 10 seconds of use. It also doesn’t store the username and password and won’t log back in with facial recognition on the iPhone X.
  • AT&T could do a lot better if they actually care about their customers

    By Tim K's iTunes Account
    Been using this App for several years because I know of no alternatives. The app shuts down just about every time I use it. It’s accuracy is horrendous. I’ve talked to “costumer service” about it and it was a complete waste of time.
  • Frequently crashes

    By ebertzzzzzzzzzzz
    I like the intent but frustrated with frequent crashes and logging in again each time.
  • Can’t even log in

    By Randi44
    Can’t even log in with my AT&T info. What a joke. DELETED. Found better ways to manage my children’s devices.
