Qustodio is a free parental control app that offers simple tools to manage kids’ screen time, filter content and monitor or block apps kids use. Best of all it automagically reports kids’ online activity to you once installed. Getting Started: First install Qustodio on your child’s iPhone or iPad, you’ll notice that inappropriate websites have been blocked automatically. Then install Qustodio on your own smartphone to monitor their activity. Qustodio will provide you a daily report of all your child’s activity in your inbox. To manage your child’s web rules or screen time, just open our desktop Family Portal (https://family.qustodio.com/) from any web browser. Want to protect more devices? You can download Qustodio to any desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. As a parent, you can manage or supervise any device directly from the Qustodio app. What does Qustodio do on iOS? Web filtering and monitoring: On your child’s device you’ll automatically get free web monitoring using our secure VPN technology. Your kids will be protected from inappropriate content or any site you choose whether they use Safari, Chrome or any other web browser. Screen Time Controls: Qustodio can control Screen Time. Our technology uses will allow you to set a time schedule or a quota of when your kids are allowed to use their device. When time is up, internet and access to all apps rated for users 4+ will be disabled. App Controls: Qustodio can report, monitor and/or block more than 50 popular apps used by kids, and you can view their usage. Free vs. Premium With Qustodio Free you can protect up to one kid’s device free, and monitor from as many parents’ devices as you want.

  • not user friendly no customer service

    By KristinBeach
    we paid for premium and could not even get it to load on any of our ios devices. no customer service for troubleshooting. spent 2 hours with my spouse trying to figure it out. ultimately deleted. next stuck trying to figure out how to get a refund.
  • Don’t use on iOS devices

    By Candissimo12345
    We purchased premium and wish it could be undone. The VPN causes major performance issues with slower phones and quickly drained battery life. Also, the usage schedule is pointless. I would like my kids to be able to access some apps anytime they want but you can either turn it all off or all on. For example, while my kids are at school I would like them to be able to access their music (teachers allow kids to use headphones in some classes) but not Snapchat, instagram etc.

    Very helpful
  • REAL TIME alerts...LOVE IT!

    By 5 Solas Goat Lady
    This was recommended by a friend. I of course wanted to block inappropriate sites and screen time, but what I really wanted/needed was a real-time alert when my son was supposed to be doing homework, but "got distracted" watching HISHE or minecraft videos. THIS AP DOES EXACTLY THAT! ...so whether I'm cooking dinner or working in my greenhouse, I know if he has "strayed" and getting distracted. I don't have to walk in the house after 2 hours with him having gotten ZERO work done and say, "what have you been doing for the last 2 hours?" I get an email, "Joe tried to access YouTube but was denied access" Lastly, I personally use Apple products, but after reading the reviews, before buying him a phone, I purchased him a cheap $99 Android /Samsung phone. I'm very happy with the app so far.
  • Update for iOS 12

    By nsharpe
    This app needs an update for iOS 12 for it to run smoothly! Internet doesn’t want to connect at all unless the phone is restarted. The UI has not been updated to the iPhone X screen yet and it is very annoying.
  • Inconsistent

    By TGS512
    I thought this app was great at first, but then after a few days the phone wouldn’t always shut off at 9:00 like it was supposed to and apps that were blocked could still be accessed. It’s not a super helpful app if it isn’t reliable.
  • Perspective from a teen

    By CarsonW1234
    Many angry children are posting 1 star reviews, I’m one, but hear me out. Pros: Filters Blocks apps during screen off times Cons: Tremendously slowed down devices There are work arounds Keeps me off a lot of educational/harmless sites I have to wait till 11:00 (when my time is up) to take away the “lost iphone” message that says “time is up!” so my alarm will work and still it only works 2/3 of the time. freezes up my phone on social media apps uses a ton of battery to run keeps me off the school wifi because it blocks vpns location services on websites say i’m in saint Louis Final consensus: DO NOT recommend Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good idea absolutely botched in execution. Needs a lot of work to be anywhere close to good. It makes my life a whole lot more frustrating and my dad plans on keeping it until i’m out the house. In the unstoppable growing and advancement of technology your children should be at the top, not hindered because they use their phone a lot.
  • Not as advertised stay away

    By BHumphus
    Not as advertised. Glad I used the trial before just purchasing. Pay attention to the negative reviews!! Won’t load calls or texts when it clearly advertises it does. And it said there was usage on Amazon app and that app isn’t even installed on this phone!!!! WTH?? Stay away!!!
  • Too Expensive

    By 4i9eidierideieieu4u865-34
    My main complaint about this app is that it automatically assumes that you have 5 kids to monitor and prices the application accordingly. I only have one child with a device and $55 PER YEAR is expensive. It’s easier just to take the device away and monitor it manually. I agree with other reviews that the reporting can be better. They are on the right track with the overall idea, however, they need to make this more affordable as well.
