  • Much better, just needs to fix glitches

    By Mammaof6
    The newest update is much more user friendly. I love that I don't need to go outside of Verizon to find controls for my kids phones. That being said, it is very glitchy. I use it to turn my kids internet off when they get home from school until their chores are finished and homework is done. When I try to turn it on it becomes really unstable and sometimes reconnects and sometimes doesn't. I am thrilled though that Verizon is working to meet the needs of today's parents when it comes to monitoring our kids phone usage. Please continue to make improvements!!!!
  • Very confusing to renew

    By SteveYan777
    This app is hard to use. In addition, monthly renew is very confusing. It first asked me to type in password to make the in-app purchase, after I did that, a pop up showed up saying I already made the purchase and asking me to renew or cancel. I clicked the cancel button (to avoid potential double charge), it then said I did not renew and service may end without renew. I am totally unsure if the in-app purchase got through. What a poorly designed app!
  • Horrible waste of time

    By surfbeetle
    Version 2.0.3 kept crashing when I try to set content filtering. Then on the same day, ver 2.1 was released and it still crashes multiple times when attempting to set up the content filtering. I’m on an iPhone 7 with iOS 11.0.3. Huge waste of time.
  • Keep having issues setting and syncing time limitations

    By nitroburn1972
    As the title says. Everything is working pretty well now, except that I still have issues when attempting to delete time limitation schedules on my iPhone 7 Plus (updated to latest iOS, always), and when I change the schedules. Oftentimes, I’ll input a schedule and then watch it change to some random times/days before my eyes as it posts. Oftentimes time limit schedules don’t properly sync between iPhone app and website. Frustrating. Will call Verizon, again.
  • Crashes

    By Shawn719
    I’ve had this service/App for a while and seen many updates; however, the app still crashes when scrolling between days. For a paid service through Verizon, one would expect the app to work properly. I am less than impressed. This app failure is indicative of Verizon’s care overall. Cellular services and options are high priced and overall lacking customer care. I think after 10+ years of loyalty to Verizon its time to go elsewhere for cheaper prices /comparable services. Verizon’s monopoly mindset is ruining what once was a decent company.
  • Needs Work

    Crashes every time I edit a name of a contact Does not seem to block the social media sights when I select them. Needs work!
  • Can't even sign in

    By Antonette Torres
    I'm using the same exact password I use to sign into Verizon wireless but still keeps saying invalid password. Two weeks now that this is going on. Please fix this Verizon
  • I’m not sure 🤦‍♀️

    By Kinard8
    I am not sure I have this “updated” version cause every time I go into this app it’s not long and it blinks out or it’s not getting all info as far as phone calls and text I know for a fact my husbands line had some text yesterday from me but it’s not showing he did so im gonna do a IOS update to fix them “bugs” and see if that helps hopefully it will and cause I love it 👍🏻
  • Bad

    By Steve_Minecraft
    Me and my sister did nothing to our mother and then one day she is trying to tack us with this bull crap. This shouldn’t even be a thing because there is apple family, and you can just offload the app so that the app doesn’t track you that’s really easy. Think Verizon. Please delete this off the App Store.

    I'm giving this a 2 Star, due to the fact that I can not see text messages through the app. Unable to disable from my phone for my children's phone. For instance no calls from 10:00pm- 0600 for children's phone yet they still receive text messages during the night. I would like to be able to read text messages even if the children delete the messages and go see picture messages as well. Also blocking numbers is truly a hassle if the child does not have an iPhone. Children should not be able to delete the app either.
