    I just got a new iPhone. It worked seamlessly, and I was really happy with the way it looked and performed. Then, this app was downloaded to my phone. My internet access is slow at best, with none of my social media loading and YouTube saying I’m not even connected to the internet when I’m on my WiFi. Apps that used to take seconds to install now take up to 15 minutes. It drains my data and my battery; my battery life used to span from 2-3 days, and now it dies 3/4 through a day. It routinely blocks harmless utilities “for my protection” such as my calculator and my music apps, which consumes not only my time but my parents’ as well as they work to unblock these apps. Do not install this app unless you want your phone to be effectively useless.

    I have so many reasons to hate this app. For starters, it slows the phone down tremendously and drains the battery like crazy. I used to be able to go a full day without having to charge my phone but now I can’t even go two hours, and all without even using it for more than a few minutes. Also, my mother shut my phone down once. The app’s way of doing this is to delete all app except for itself. She only did this once, but then it started happening at random. As an added bonus, every time it shuts the phone down and deletes all of the apps that were currently installed, after it comes back online, it reinstalls every app. I mean EVERY APP. Every app that has ever been on my phone/ account is now reinstalled. So every time it decides to do this I have to reorganize my phone, which is very difficult because I put all of my apps in folders which it also deletes. So if you do want to stalk your child, which I still disapprove of, and are an iOS user, save your money and just use screen time. My father was already using this app on my phone before this horrible app was installed. I hate it but when compared to this app it is great. An appropriate analogy for this is if you were isolated from people for a very long time and the first person you see is the person you hate the most but at that moment you feel like you could kiss them. Sorry for the long review but I really needed to rant about the frustration this app has caused me.

    Every, and I do mean EVERY day I get an email stating I have not verified my email to get all the data/sites etc that my child has used. I go in to verify and it still doesn’t not show me who’s they’ve been texting nor websites. Furthermore the app is useless as well, I’m getting minimal information each day. I know when they are on their phone and it shows nothing. I am paying yearly but this app is useless.

    There’s just too much going wrong with the app to be reliable. The kids can bypass anything you do on the app when they turn on airplane mode, phone calls and texts appear as unknown or numbers instead of labeled contacts while blocked, and the app’s vpn has to be working for anyone to receive internet connection, and I get a lot of reports of the vpn not connecting. The app doesn’t do anything but make lazy parenting habits. All of its features are condensed versions of features already available on any phone

    I have discovered that it is reporting websites that my daughter CANNOT even access. I know without a doubt that she is not accessing these sites. Others are having the same problem. What a waste of money...
  • Do not buy the Premium version if you are an Apple IOS

    If you are an apple user, do not buy the Premium version bcz it does not offer any further functionality like the free version. Btw the free version is not too bad. Help me a lot to monitor the time that my daughter spend in her cel phone. Thank you
  • DO NOT BUY

    Does not work with IOS and they won’t refund your money. Even though it says it does work with IOS. Cannot monitor text or calls or limit game use. Worst waste of money. Rip-off!
