Not bad Everyone who can't figure how to get to their settings needs to go to the Admin console and just check the box under user settings to allow it. While youre in there you can tell it to block any app on the phone and any newly installed app. This is good. Filtering is as good as PC because it's exactly the same. Only bad thing is you have to use the Net Nanny browser to get web filtering. The browser is Firefox, but I dont like this limitation. If they ever figure out how to filter all browsers it gets 5 star
No customer support and doesn't work on Android As of at least a month ago, this program stopped blocking download of apps and doesn't bloc chrome anymore. If you want to view a page in Chrome, just open chrome. When you see the warning that chrome isn't allowed just minimize the window with the little square. Then maximize it again and you'll have a chrome browser window you can type any URL into even if it's blocked by the net nanny profile installed on the device. So the program doesn't work. They say programmers are working in it but....
This app is terrible Net nanny interferes with the normal functions of the phone. I can't even turn my screen light brighter without net nanny blocking this action. You're supposed to be able to go on their website to allow certain actions. But this is ridiculous! I shouldn't have to OK turning up the light on my phone. I have tried to change the setting on net nanny but with no success!
"Loophole" My teenage son turned off the net nanny app in application manager. [I gave it 2 stars because my 13 year old son & 2 year old granddaughter haven't figured out how to do that YET!!!]That makes the app pointless and a waste of my money. I just want an app that works and keeps my kids safe while on the interent.
Need yearly subscription I'm sure this app does what bit is intended to do. However, I am looking for a pay once type of app not a yearly subscription. I don't understand wh everyone is complaining this app is to keep kids away from harmful apps and websites. If you're an adult and have this and rated this app poorly because you can't figure out then something is wrong with you. Just not something I want to pay yearly. P.s the reviews had me doubt this app but inset the one star reviews must be from kids.
Purchased and installed on a Windows 10 PC based on a PC Magazine "editor's choice" rating. Total waste of money, essentially a rip-off. Does not work with Chrome browser and support is non existent. Avoid ! Zero stars.
