  • Inaccurate

    By jade echols
    It shows my child on YouTube and other apps when her phone was in my possession and during the time I set in the app for her phone to not have internet access. Doesn’t seem to be accurate in a lot of areas, which defeats the purpose of even having this app.

    I want smart limits back. This app is pointless. I plan to cancel I’ve had this app for while now it was working now every time it says failed!
  • Pairing the phone?

    By Elina-ET
    The biggest problem I have is to pair your child’s/teens phone. We should be able to set parameters without having to pair their phone or possible install something on their phone which they can easily delete. The data management should just be allowed at the plan level where the parent can set times and forget it and not have to “pair” anything. The whole point is to do what’s needed whether they agree or not as a parent I think we know what’s best for kids. Pairing is making you go through the child in essence for their permission to pair? Why? I’ve had the Verizon family app which no pairing was necessary. I’ve moved to ATT for better reception but this is not good
  • Unhappy

    By LadyOklas
    This app may be OK for little kids but for teenagers it’s not so good. You have to download an companion app. to the teenagers phone.After you have it set up after a few days they can disable it. So what’s the point of this app if the child can disable their companion app and you have to synchronize your phones again.
  • Doesn’t do what I expected.

    By ChelleOK49
    I like how this lets me know where my sone is, but it does not keep him from playing games on the internet while he is at school.
  • Good overall

    By tiffxcii
    App blocking does not work if your child has already downloaded the app previously on iPhone. The other features are great though.
  • Not good enough

    By Layniebritt
    Doesn’t block things when you’ve selected them(we have all social media blocked, but it still works). One representative said if we have another app like Life360 then it “may not work”.
  • Worst

    By jfrjm
    App doesn’t show accurate location
  • Accessibility

    By ohangi
    I love the app. If I could improve on anything, it would be that you can’t change settings for locating the phone. If it’s as simple as a child turning off the features then it’s useless. Kids don’t realize the dangers of being “invisible “
  • Intermittent

    By MBLMN
    Sometimes the gps will not show up at all , I was checking on a family member location and it would not load and the screen disappeared, can only hope and wonder that it doesn’t do it in case of an emergency, very disappointed.
