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
It takes up way too much space I could install a lot more games! Also when I searched how to solve a rubix cube and went to a website it blocked me and said that it was too mature and when I searched how to do a backbend kickover I tried to go to a website and net nanny blocked it again and said includes drugs and violence. Don't like it at all.
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!
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.
"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.
