    My child has found a way to turn the app off. If she won’t tell me how she did it and leave it alone I have no clue what to look for or change in her phone. I don’t know how to run her android because I have an iPhone. It does me no good to guess. Then I have to confiscate her phone and end up paying for a phone that’s not being used.

    Takes the fight away about time, data amounts, uses. Important life skills taught using the internet.
  • Don’t Waste your Money

    Terrible, if you block your certain numbers from this app and your child is texting that number Verizon sends them a message saying account owner blocked that number. So what’s the point to have a service for extra money when it alerts the child what you have done on your end without the child knowing.

    Helps me keep an eye on all activity and keeps my son safe from all the junk out there to distract them.
  • Can’t approve my son’s apps anymore

    By i just want to post my review
    When we first started using this, he would click “ask parent” to Download an app. Then I would immediately get the request and I could approve or deny. Then suddenly it stopped working. He would click to ask a parent but I never get the request. Then he tried to do it where a parent approves right from his phone and still, nothing happens. Please fix this!!- also it never shows his texts. Literally he will text me all day and I can check and it shows none or maybe 1 text. (?)

    Love love love this app ! I feel better and sleep better being able to keep an eye on my kids better because this day in age you can’t hardly trust anyone ! I feel better with a larger piece of mind that my kids can be found easily; I can set their time for calls and texts as not to interrupt their sleeping patterns & school schedule as well as restrict their data usage. Awesome App ! Dawn McLeod
  • This is worst app I have ever had! Go back to family base it worked

    Loving this app. It covers everything, however, it may need a bit more juice in those tight areas whereas some usages may not appear or it seems as though the app has been shut out because of that. Areas where only the “View Usage” on the wireless webpage can reveal. Otherwise I give it four (4) stars!!!!
  • Don’t waste your time!

    I was thrilled to be able to add the to our account after giving my son a phone. However, does not work AT All! Often his location shows another stat, even when sitting right next to me! Calls and texts to and from him only showed a handful of times, even when in knew there were more. Spent an hour in the phone with customer service which was useless. Went into the store and two people tried for almost 2 hours and still couldn’t figure it out. Needless to say, I am searching for a product with same features that actually works!
