  • Wish there was a "Zero" star option

    By Disappointed in Chase
    Absolutely disgusted with Verizon and forcing users to use this app. I put a couple numbers on the watchlist for my son's phone and Verizon sent my son a text message notifying him that his parent will now receive a notification every time he has contact with that person!!!! This is not acceptable Verizon! And without any warning to the parent that their CHILD would be notified. Not all families are the Brady Bunch and have real life issues and struggles trying to keep their children protected. $192 a month for 2 lines and service and this is the crap we have to put up with? Disgusted.
  • Unfriendly Navigation and Glitchy

    By SC950
    Title says it all. Very poor design makes it really difficult to navigate and find the options you want to see or change. It's just not intuitive. Often doesn't allow you to scroll to page bottom to accept your changes (or see the rest of the options). I'd happily pay $5 a month for something that works well and has the same options. If they could just completely redesign the user experience in a logical and smooth way, I would reconsider. What concerns me is all of the bad reviews and no improvements in a year. It shows they don't care or are out of touch. Very Disappointed, Verizon.

    The worse app I have ever downloaded. I know my daughter texts and it does not show on the activity. Called Verizon and they claim she is using WIFi and it don't come through Verizon. I guess my husband uses WIFI as well. Don't waste your time nor money on this app.
  • Horrible App

    By IPg33k
    Use website to make changes. App barely works. $5 a month and they can't even get a working app.
  • Worst app ever

    By Marisa Lynch / kid
    Worst app I have ever used. I can log on but can't get past the first screen to use the app. It freezes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and it still doesn't work. It is stupid that I have to pay money to monitor my child and then the app doesn't even work.
  • The worst

    By MCSE1900
    Plain and simple… The worst app ever. You can't do anything… You can't find anything… Provides zero value.
  • Horrible app

    By K lee1976
    Not only does Verizon charge to use family base "benefits", the app is poorly designed and extremely unintuitive. The so called "benefits" should be free with service.
  • Poor app

    By Rolltide2
    Using this app is a royal pain in the butt. I've finally given up. It's much easier to log into the website to change and update settings. It's frustrating because other providers have figured out an easy way for users to update their data limits, times, etc. The writers of this app aren't very good at their jobs. My children's schedules are constantly changing so I need to regularly adjust their time restrictions which is impossible to do with the app. I can't change settings. I can't save them because the reset changes button isn't accessible on my phone screen. Not worth the headache.
  • Couldn't get past first screen

    By TheFabulousR
    I install the app and logged in and then it just kept crashing. I wasn't able to do a single thing with it. Uninstalling the app now since I don't have any faith they'll keep my data safe from hackers.
