This is the most disappointing thing about getting a Bitdefender subscription. Everything else seems to be really good, but evidently parent controls are an after thought.. The app on my kids device blocks everything regardless if it has permission to be used. I wish this was more like XBOX, that a painless process to give access to a specific app/game..I was really looking forward to the location alerts that would have been it stands I had to uninstall the app, to get anything to work.

The updated app removes the ability to block apps, specifically "google play". The filtering is poor, blocks kid friendly content! It is now completely useless. To make matters worse... you can only access the controls via a browser...the app for parents has been removed from the Central app. The remaining functionality you can get for free on many apps including Google 's family link. Why bother installing bloatware on your kids phone??
