  • Horrible waste of time

    By surfbeetle
    Version 2.0.3 kept crashing when I try to set content filtering. Then on the same day, ver 2.1 was released and it still crashes multiple times when attempting to set up the content filtering. I’m on an iPhone 7 with the latest iOS 11. Huge waste of time.
  • Poor performance

    By Belmont citizen
    This app worked well for a month or so. Then it stopped tracking and limiting text messages on the teen phone. It also sends false data use statements, and too many text messages in general. The final straw was the app limited adult text messages instead of teen phone text messages. I had to delete the app and limits to clear my phone of restrictions. Good idea, poor execution.
  • Horrible app!

    By ShootingStar919
    I pay for this app and it never works. When I change restrictions the app claims it's experiencing technical difficulties. Then it resets all of my restrictions. I have to redo everything on my computer to make sure the settings are accurate. Waste of time and money!
  • App closes unexpectedly

    By Hadhxjdhxyhz
    The app keeps closing when you click on any new info.
  • Keep having issues setting and syncing time limitations

    By nitroburn1972
    As the title says. Everything is working pretty well now, except that I still have issues when attempting to delete time limitation schedules on my iPhone 7 Plus (updated to latest iOS, always) or when I change the schedules. Oftentimes, I’ll input a schedule and then watch it change to some random times/days before my eyes as it posts. Oftentimes time limit schedules don’t properly sync between iPhone app and website. Frustrating. Will call Verizon, again.
  • Unusable for my teenage son, OKay for young Kids..

    By JJMM1776
    Even though he is not supposed to be able to do it, he has figured out how to circumvent the content controls by going into Android Developers Admin Mode and Zeroing the App’s Data, causing it to Unsync from the Parent Control App. Although it does not uninstall the App it cannot connect so the Content Control function becomes unusable. I needed an App that can in NO WAY BE TAMPERED WITH by the child’s client device. The other issue is you have no control over Wi-Fi connectivity, only Cellular signal. The other functions of the App work well so I would recommend this App for Parents who want control of a younger child’s (Up to 12 years of Age Only) device because most younger children don’t research Google for how to bypass or uninstall Parental Controls.
  • Unstable

    By WillowPondFarm
    The ap could be useful, but it routinely shuts down mid-task. Then you have to sign in again and again. Maybe you find what you need, or more likely you get frustrated and give up.
  • Could be so much better....

    By Laurie.Ann
    This app is a great concept, but it continually crashes.
  • Needs work

    By Nettie85
    Overall I think this app is very helpful especially in limiting with my son has access to and how much data he can has. But I don’t like how his call and text information always displays zero when I know he’s using his phone. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update soon.
  • Can’t remove restrictions??

    By HoopsUD
    I like the restrictions options, however I cannot remove the restriction! The app says error.
