  • Half way works.

    By Grunt man Sam
    Terrible app! Never working when needed.
  • Save your money and time!

    By MamaAvery
    I used this and it rendered any phone hooked up to it useless until I went to the AT&T store and they fixed it via customer support.
  • Worthless as an internet filter.

    By K5hmd
    Doesn’t allow selective blocking of web sites or allow you to see what your child has been accessing.
  • Doesn’t recognize my att login

    By done1239876
    It hasn’t worked in months. Suddenly stopped recognizing my att login
  • Does not work

    By Cari Lil Bitty
    Out of the 10 to 15 calls that we’re received it only notified me of 2. Only 2!!!! When I was there when the phone calls came in along with several messages. It doesn’t do what it says. Waste of time
  • Amazing

    By Nicoleferber
    Love this app.Allows me to weed out the scam garbage and block it. Plus it gives me the ability to control my usage and reflect on my call history
  • Useless app

    By JD-211
    This app is unusable. Trying to set time limits is impossible - it’s a literally a random number generator.
  • Eh

    By lyds042
    It really isn’t very useful. It can’t do anything about WiFi which makes it fairly useless on an iPhone. I was hoping to be able to add content restrictions but it can’t do that at all either. It would work fine on an adult that texts but for kids who use apps like Snapchat it does nothing.
  • Do NOT Download

    By Gjvdgbcssjkvcdgjko
    This “service” ruined my son’s phone. Once we installed it he lost all cellular data. He can’t receive iMessages, use the browser or any of his apps outside of our home. It’s completely unacceptable for AT&T to make this available for their customers when they know it doesn’t work and interferes with phone usage. I was on the phone four times over two days and someone finally found a way to remove the service from his line...and it will only take over a week to remedy! So no phone usage until then. But we still pay for his monthly (nonexistent) phone service!
  • This app doesn't work

    By STLHardRock!
    I had this app working and now I can't even log into it anymore. I'm ready to cancel my smart limits because it does not work.
