This is a monitor only app, outbound commands attempted from this interface will not only fail, but will stall out causing you to have to exit the app. Parental controls are a practical joke. When you try to access customer service quick help guides you once again stall out and the page will not load. Before customer service comes on here and gives the blanket please contact us, reread the above issue. Me calling you will not change it from what it is. Yes all required apps were used.

Excellent. This is the consumer version of their enterprise product, Gravity Zone. Great insight and management for a variety of devices and operating systems. In the 18 months of using it I have not had any issues. Currently managing 42 devices, Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. It helps me to identify issues in real time and prevent them from becoming a problem. Bitdefender may not be a household word like other security products, but their detection, protection and remediation is outstanding.

I use this app in conjunction with Bitdefender Total Security. I use the Parental Control in an attempt to block inappropriate web content and to check in with the "Locate" feature. So far, I have found that it doesn't provide enough information or an alert when an inappropriate website is blocked nor does the "Locate" feature work. The phone could be sitting next to me, but "Locate" shows the phone a few miles away. This is not a free app so I expect to receive what I'm paying for.
