About this app

We know how hard it is to set boundaries for your kids on the internet. Our goal is to give you the confidence that they are protected while using smartphones and tablets.

1. Given the opportunity, most kids would be glued to their phones at every waking hour. With App Guard, you can set up the daily limit for gaming and limit playtime at night or during school hours. It automatically controls apps and games and allows kids to use only the age-appropriate ones.

2. When kids are online, they can come across web pages with fake news or violent or adult content. Web Guard ensures your kids’ internet safety by keeping them away from inappropriate pages.

3. If your child didn’t come from school yet and doesn’t pick up the phone, Child Locator locates your child’s phone’s current location. Additionally, Geofencing allows you to get the notification if your child enters or steps out of the default area on the map.

4. Do you worry about your child’s phone’s battery dying and not being able to contact them? Set up Battery Protector that will limit playing games if the battery level drops below the default level.

5. Does your child have a crucial task to finish, and you are afraid they will play on their phone instead? Use Instant Block for a temporary ban on games and entertainment. If your child has some free time, you can also temporarily suspend the time limit rule through Vacation Mode.

6. Are the rules too strict? Has a newly installed app been blocked? Children can ask for an exception, and parents can instantly approve or deny requests.

7. Do you want to change the rules settings? Sign in to on a PC or mobile phone and change them remotely. If you, as a parent, also use an android smartphone, install our app on your phone in parent mode, and you will receive instant notifications.

8. Can’t reach your kid via phone? Check the Devices section to see if they have turned off the sound or are offline.

9. Do you have kids who have more smartphones or tablets? One license can cover multiple devices, so your whole family is protected.

10. Do you want to know your kid’s interests and how long they have spent using their phone? Reports will give you the detailed information.

11. Language barrier? Don’t worry, our app communicates with kids in 30 languages.

One of the better parental control apps. I have subscribed for years and appreciated the app. I hoped to see substantial improvements, and I wanted to support it. Unfortunately the premium reports have been flawed for years. Tech support weren't interested, so I cancelled. I'm not going to pay to unlock broken features (reports). Other pay features work.

It'd be great if it worked. It worked well for a couple of months, then the daily reports and monitoring (shows how much time spent on what apps) stopped working. Costumer service left me hanging mid "solution" 3 times. Location (even with high accuracy) was showing my daughter "leaving" the home perimeter through out the day even though she was inside the home. I tried increasing the perimeter , didn't work. So that feature was pointless. Cut my losses after 6 months into annual subscription.

This app has worked pretty well, however it consistently has trouble locating my child's device when other apps such as find my phone can locate it in seconds. Also, I am unable to add time to my child's usage on an as needed basis either via the app or in the website. I get a "communication failed" error message. The customer service is terrible as it is just only via email and they respond with stock messages instead of actual solutions to the real issue. Additionally my child is unable to remove the notification that constantly displays how much game time is left. There are no settings available to the child to modify these notifications. Based on ask these issues, I will not be renewing my subscription. There are other more responsive apps that do a better job.
