Child mode is unwieldy, during attempts to disable it at parental screen, the posture/distance feature popups keeps disrupting the procedure, making it difficult to access the phone. There was no way to acknowledge the popup locks others than to follow its command and wait. This was a bad experience as I needed full control of the phone, and it didn't help that my child was fussing at the time. At parental control screens (even just for password input) phone control shouldn't be disruptive.

Was approached by a young girl at to sign up for the app.. and was forced to submit a 5 star review on the spot (I suppose to boost the rating of this app and help the girl hit her "sales target").. Take note, they will tell you that they will send you a $10 NTUC voucher via email which i think is another way to collect your personal data and probably a lie as well.. Used the app, the child mode stops the phone from functioning normally every 3s.. Deleting the app.
