  • Happy with this App

    By BrunBuck
    For the price we are happy with the performance. Most apps of this nature are twice this much for what you get.

    By tiffany589
    Don’t get this!! I installed it on my kids phones and it completely backfired!!! It not only slowed down my child’s network and also blocked several sites for my child that was needed for educational purposes. This app is a huge rip-off. It cost a lot for more than one child. This is a terrible thing to spend your money on. Also when I paid for this service before hand and downloaded it to my children’s devices, it was not FUNCTIONING. I sent an email to this company because they do not have a place to call so I do not recommend this app for anyone.
  • Doesn’t full support iPhone

    By Jenn Carne
    I wish I would have known that this app is not fully functional for an iPhone. I basically gave my money away because the annual fee I paid is non refundable!
  • Unreliable

    By Tomatosause
    It’s a good attempt but reality is that it does not record time usage accurately-without which, your left guessing if it really does it’s intended job. Customer support is limited to instructions to reinstall the app and hope tYour problem disappears-but of course the problem will still be there. Don’t know about the alternatives, but my suggestion is to demo them all before committing your dollars.
  • Good in theory and when it works

    By Pholguin
    I’m having trouble reaching someone from the company. It seems I can’t even email someone from customer service. Apps on my kids phones are glitchy. I can’t block their phones on command. They can still use them. This was a featured I was really looking forward to. It takes a full day for the time block to go into effect. My son is frustrated because he can’t search on Google, even though he has updated the app in Google Play. Would love to see your company being more responsive!
  • Absolutely unfair

    By Jamie❤️❤️❤️
    I feel like parents are watching their every kid’s move and giving them tons of distrust and it makes kids feel persecuted and annoyed that their parents think that this app is necessary and it is a waste of money and time especially since it barely works, as some reviews say. Please show your kids some respect! I mean I know there’s no legal rights for kids to have privacy. But the fact that some kids used to be respectful and close to their parents but now every kid who wrote a review is saying that they are so blocked and they are being monitored on everything and being invaded when it comes to privacy is just wrong. Really, just because they are kids doesn’t mean that they have no self control or privacy whatsoever they aren’t just little toys that you can do whatever you want to them.
  • The tallest dwarf

    By rrrrrrz.
    Sadly this the best alternative in a software category of underperforming competitors. Tech support is horrible
  • VPN causes problems with Netflix and Prime video

    By gute4
    FYI you have to turn off VPN to use Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Apparently both companies are now starting to block VPN traffic due to regional restrictions on content. This pretty much prevents the app from performing its intended purpose.
  • Love it

    By boo6926
    Cost more than the Disney circle but it block so much more and tell me ever download and lets me know ever key stroke
  • Wanted to love it....

    By Bummed Parents
    We so wanted to use and love this app, as it seemed the best way to give our teens a phone, yet protect them as much as possible from all of the risks of a smartphone. It’s the one app that contains all of the stuff we were looking for. But....about 90% of the time so far the app doesn’t work. Daughter can go on internet freely, even though blocked on the app, and it rarely gives accurate messaging or location info. It’s just been a bummer for us, we’re trying to get our money back. Not worth it when there are many free apps that are likely more consistently working, and even though this has all of the controls we were looking for, it’s worthless because it rarely does what it is supposed to do. Bummer.
