  • Parental Controls caused problems

    By gateman145
    When I activated the filters on my children’s phones, they caused Wi-Fi connection problems. This isn’t what I’m paying over 5 dollars a month extra for.
  • Limited functionality

    By amlkds
    Pros: Ability to block unknown and private callers, ability to block specific individuals, setting data and purchase limits and content controls. Cons: Time restrictions do not apply to kids iMessaging each other or when connected to WiFi. Also does not track app usage when connected to WiFi. Because my child is almost always connected to WiFi, (iMessaging or Instagram) there is very little tracking going on with who she is communicating with. Her daily activity reports are almost always blank. Therefore, in order to see who she’s communicating with, I have to physically scroll through her phone.
  • Constantly crashes

    By Acooper007
    The app could be great! But, it constantly crashes, like during every use. Please just fix the bugs!!!
  • Important tool, buggy and crashes a lot

    By EngT0PD0G
    I am happy I have something to help limit nighttime and school time access, however the app is not well designed or maintained, has bugs in scheduling tool, and quits/crashes frequently. Also, if you allow certain contacts for kids to use in an emergency (nice feature) they can call, but SMS texting is hard on iPhone since it want to send as iMessage and does not fallback to SMS in this case. You would have to disable iMessage and tenable after ever time. Not ideal for middle of night. Verizon. - you can do better.
  • What a joke

    By Lilredrl
    The concept is great, but it never works! I had it for s couple months and had to contact customer support several times. God rid of it for a while, decided to try again... still not working! I put restrictions on and can’t remove them!
  • Your app has too many bugs

    By L-Umphrey
    This App cancels after about 20 seconds. Can you update to fix this problem. Too much of a hassle to use.
  • Fix the automatic close!

    By Cellis687
    Aggravating app since it closes every few seconds. I have deleted the app and downloaded this multiple times. The app is easy to use for the few seconds that it is not closing while operating the app.
  • Error messages

    By topherjoe
    This app was my saving grace at one point but then it stopped working correctly. Time restrictions can’t be change and all I get is an error message that says it will be “reported”. Very frustrating and a waste of money at this point.
  • WiFi has no effect

    By Illinifan5
    If kids are in a place with WFi then the restrictions mean nothing! STUPID
  • Was great until recently

    By Banan2
    I was enjoying this until just two days ago. When you had an update for some big fixes. Well nothing was fixed, if anything it made the program not work anymore. Since that day I can’t see any calls or texts anymore in my app...says no data today which I know isn’t true since my number always shows up. Content filters aren’t working either. I hope this is fixed ASAP and I’ll change my review and rating. Pretty upset since I’m paying money for this.
