  • Difficult app to set up

    By RubsomebacononSQ
    Took way too long to set up and my teen was still able to delete it!
  • Frustrating

    By SoAl_888
    The set up was extensive and complicated, after setting up I still received numerous notifications saying something went wrong. I could not keep up with the constant and continuous errors which had to be fixed on my child’s phone settings. It’s incredibly frustrating when this app needs more attention when I got it because it was going to give me a peace of mind.
  • Problem

    By ELC Ng Mike
    I had a problem to use it. I had no idea how to use it. Please help.
  • I love this app!

    By Brookie E
    My experience with SaferKid has been seamless. It’s such a great app and makes me so much more comfortable with my kids having cell phones. Highly recommend!
  • I have a quick question

    By Idkfwj357
    This app looks amazing, and I’m totally interested in utilizing your product. One thing I’m confused about though is what your system does automatically vs what I can program it to do. Can I choose what kind of web content to block/ allow, or are some things blocked automatically, with no option for adjustment?
  • Don’t waste your money

    By Momma Bear'n
    This app does NOT work! They are more than happy to keep taking your money but I have NEVER been able to get it to work like it’s supposed to. And when you think it might be working, you have to constantly get on your kid’s phone and update it. Huge disappointment. 👎🏼👎🏼
  • Too slow, making it irrelevant...Canceled!

    By Branpet
    Took forever to synchronize texts, it was easier to just go to my child’s phone... which is free! Texts coming in a week later makes them irrelevant, thus making this app useless. I expect a lot more for the $ you charge. But I’m back to just making a cursory check of my child’s phone every night, and the rest of the apps, downloads, screen time, etc. can be managed by my phone as parent, for free. It’s in your settings.
  • Ok, but could be better

    By iPhoneUser2367
    It tracks messages ok, but only updates every 6 hours, and isnt very reliable at that. It should also track what email accounts are used and what is sent/received, and needs to track phone calls as well. +1 for effort, but much room for improvement

    By Phantomplayz17
    If the developer see’s this, I really need help!! When I first got the app, which was at 9:50 or something close, almost all the apps were gone from my phone, and I thought it was the bedtime mode. But in the morning, the apps were still gone! And when I went onto the App Store to try and get my games back, I couldn’t download ANYTHING. Couldn’t download games, safari, FaceTime, camera, anything! Someone please help!!
  • Disappointed

    By Lala9981
    It was a lengthy process to get it all set up and now it doesn’t even work properly. Great idea, but not well executed I guess. The texts have not updated in over 24 hours, so by that time it is useless. I will be searching for a new app to better suit my needs.
