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....
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
In terms of blocking content, it works great. However, there's also some problems. 1) Unless if you have a blocker on the mobile device, you can still access other browsers (Chrome, Explorer, etc). Net Nanny is only a browser, not a phone blocker. 2) It won't play videos because it doesn't support flash (not a huge problem for me, but it's a big deal to others. 3) The browser shuts down on its own. I can't tell you how many times I've been in the middle of something, and it shuts down. All windows I had opened are automatically closed. If used properly, it works great. It gives you the option of what you like to block.
My parents got this for me so I could stay safe while watching YouTube videos, but the app won't even let me access my phones settings. I asked my mom about it and she said she wasn't able to change it. Over all its OK, but a bit too strict.
Terrible interface All I wanted to do was use the app to manage an account. It wanted to register my phone, but when you click on the link it provides and login, all you get is a page asking you what subscription you want to purchase. I have never been please with there interface on the web either, not user friendly at all.
I hate this app. It did not work, and restricted every thing I did not want it to restrict. In all, it was very confusing and it took me a week to figure out. It is also very controversial with its dilution of a woman. She is VERY skinny with hair in a tight bun. After seeing that picture a few times, my kid wanted to be an nanny so she can "have that body"🤔😠
