  • Can’t see all pictures

    By Jesusisjoy
    I paid for this app in August and have sent many emails that I’m not able to see all the pictures my child sends and receives. It’s almost December and I still haven’t received help. I do love that you can shut down all the apps on your child’s phone remotely, but you can’t isolate which apps get shut down. So unfortunately, the other monitoring app (Life360) on my kid’s phone gets shut down when I shut off her screen time. So this is not a great feature.
  • Used to be a good app

    By geogplanner
    Have been using this for about 2 years now but recently, the management profile that allows the app to monitor our kid’s phone keeps getting deleted. Help and fix this please! Otherwise we are going to have to try other options.
  • Do NOT download

    By angrymom 531
    I downloaded the app to mine and my kids phone. We tried the 7 day trial and this is NOT something going I’m looking for. I have tried and tried to remove the app. He cannot use apps for school that he needs because of this app. I have requested help to remove the app and have not received help. There is no phone number so if something goes wrong good luck getting help.
  • Works well, but odd quirks

    By Melissalwillams14
    App works great for what it’s supposed to do. However, it would be nice to not have to wait between updates, and sometimes it says the profile isn’t on the phone anymore and I’ll have to redo it.
  • Frustrating

    By Suzie'n'Nate
    The idea of the app is great, however. It does not update call history for iPhones. Pictures sent in text messages do not load. It makes it really difficult to make changes that I want to make to my daughters phone. And most frustrating of all is the data refresh. It does NOT update throughout the day. When I open the app it gives me the “you can start a new import in…” but after the time is up it has not updated anything even when I know for a fact that my daughter has been sending and receiving text messages. Or if it starts an import and I have to exit the app but go back to it, it will start a new import all over (often 40 minutes instead of 20). It’s infuriating and I paid a lot of money for it to work so inconsistently.
  • Not worth it

    By anonymous_13568877
    This app isn’t worth the money. Don’t get this app for your kids. My son figured out how to disable the app in a couple days. I can’t believe i wasted my money on this.
  • Overall it’s pretty awesome

    By crazy plant mom of 2
    Please try and fix this…under settings…general…device management All the child would have to do is be curiously browsing through their phones settings which I know many kids most definitely do and they would easily be able to figure out how to “remove management” of the app. There has got to be a way to secure it or make it inaccessible by the child. Please fix. Thank you and I most definitely appreciate the development of an app like this while having a 12 year old daughter who loves social media and her phone more than anything. I have learned my lesson though and definitely won’t be giving my youngest daughter a phone as young as I did the first one! It’s so nerve racking raising kids with today’s technology! Geez I think my parents had it easy!
  • takes money out without consent

    By Vlitoris
    i never agreed to pay for the $199.99 subscription i never clicked on it and this app had charged me $200 for something i don’t use and i didn’t even have on my phone. i would love to have a full refund but i don’t see that happening. don’t get the app if you don’t want your money taken from u.
  • Unreliable and inconsistent monitoring

    By Jojodeangelo
    I really had high hopes this app was what I needed for safe monitoring and limits. unfortunately it was a waste of $200. It is very difficult and time consuming to set up, once that was finally accomplished I felt good about the updates and imports, however after a few months of monitoring I started to notice the import is inconsistent. It isn’t reliable many of the messages I send my sons don’t ever go through on the app, so I’m sure I’m missing much of the anticipated monitoring that I paid for. Most of the monitoring the app claims to be useful for, you can accomplish through iCloud and screen time limits through your phone. I’m really disappointed in this, especially for the price.
  • Not dependable

    By 4disappointed
    I’m about to delete this off my phone and get something else. I have 2 kids and 2 phones. I put them both on a schedule. It works on the one phone but not the other phone. I have deleted the schedules on that one phone and reinstall the schedule in hopes that it will disable apps as scheduled. It still will not work. I give up. I have been trying to see if it will work for a few months now and still will not disable apps when requested. The schedules are listed there but still nothing. I’m so disappointed
