This app has kept my family safe! You can use it on multiple devices and pause protection for various amounts of time, if needed. I find I need to pause protection occasionally to do updates or access certain sites/apps that Canopy slows or blocks (like Google Maps, for some reason). While it does slow things down, it's worth it to me! This means it is blocking content BEFORE getting to devices instead of like a major competitor, which just alerts parents if inappropriate things come up.

Canopy is an amazing filter. It routes everything through their VPN and filters everything. The service used to slow things down a lot but over the last few years their service has gotten better. Apps work smoother than they have previously. The Canopy team is constantly working to improve how the service works. This app definitely works in keeping kids safe online but still giving them functionality on their devices.

This has been a great tool for our family! The customer service team has been responsive and fixed problems when they have arisen. But it sometimes blocks access to things that are appropriate, such as pages on websites or Youtube channels that are not listed as "for kids" but have no inappropriate content. The VPN also causes connectivity issues with other apps at times, although whoever has the admin account can temporarily turn it off, take care of what's needed, and then turn it back on.
