  • Simply doesn’t work

    By My TV dinner
    First it doesn’t work with most of the iOS devices. There is a prompt. Even is android devices, my kids can still open blocked app. The Device timer doesn’t work. The only thing I found it working is the location. Don’t waste you time. It will only cause frustration.
  • Terrible glitch

  • Worst app

  • Drains battery

    By Shadeaflame
    Can lose 1-2 percent a min with only Spotify at 94 battery Heath meaning this app will kill battery and will continue to stay on in the background for over 20 HOURS a day meaning it is Spyware taking more then it needs.
  • 全然機能しない全然機能しない

    By Eddie Na.
    一体何なんだ、このアプリは。息子のPCにSafe Familyをインストールしても、全く機能しないし、このアプリも子供の行動を追跡できない。Adult siteもブロック出来てないし、追跡も出来ない。金返せレベルの話。何度、インストールし直しても、同じ結果。
  • This app is garbage after 4 hours of attempting to install on kids phone, still no success!

    By Jojodamonkey
    I can not find a helpful topic I have tried using other browsers . They want to install an enroll file but that doesn’t work. What a load of trash! My only consolation is that I only paid for one month. McAfee if you read these reviews reach out to prove me wrong please
  • Worst app

    By madmother39
    It bumps you out take forever to unlock I had better ones in the past. Now that I changed phones I can’t go back. Time for a refund
  • Automatic shut downs

    By lewishunter19
    The app doesn’t even stay open long enough to do anything. The smart family app crashes constantly and there’s no phones connected to it. Such a disappointment!
  • This is messed up and I am disgusted

    By тσχιᴄ
    So you people are going to control children’s lives?!? Do you remember when you were kids and could sneak out and have fun. Kids just want some freedom they don’t want to be the weird kid that can’t do anything cause their parents don’t trust them. I am disgusted with you parents who SPEND MONEY to control your kids lives. They can only live once let them make the best of it. Let them live their lives. I’m sure they will appreciate I have a great relationship with my kid he talks to me and is always open. You installing this ruins your relationship with them. I know when I was a kid and my parents controlled me I was always angry at them. That’s why I swore I would never parent how they did. And my kid loves it. I suggest you do the same
