I love this app! My son is able to have his phone and I don't have to worry about him seeing inappropriate content. I know there are no absolutes but this sure helps to ease the mind! I would like the ability for my son to have the original version of YouTube with a filter option for sexually explicit material like they've done with chrome but I suppose with how massive YouTube is they can't keep up with all the videos like that. Other than that no complaints! Thanks Google!
Good app. The developers have listened to the complaints in the reviews below and have fixed just about all of them. You can add another parent, you can control what apps and permissions your child uses, location of child's phone has improved, parent control has improved. I set up my child's account through family link but I think the ability to migrate an existing child account is a must for the future of this service. I'm sure the reason this is not available yet is because of the major security issues and child protective risks involved with that. I also think that age 13 is not old enough to cut off parental controls. I think 16 would be more appropriate.
Add Google classroom to allowed list! So far I really like the idea of this app but couple things that I wish could change. First the lack of my child to use Google classroom is frustrating as it's the only time in school when she is permitted to use her phone but it is a blocked app. Also I downloaded this app on my younger child's phone as it didn't exist when my older daughter got her phone and I'd like to install it however I can't add an existing Google account and I don't want all her stuff wiped. I wish y'all had a after 13 option of phone lock with locator so they have those freedoms after 13 but we as parents can still block usage at bedtime and keep track of where they are.
Can't log in on my child's tablet.. reset it and all I get it the password doesn't match and I've changed it 4 times and try to log in.. I would like a refund since I can't use the app on my child's device.. also annoying that I had to set up a new account for him.. he already had an account with google.. glad I didn't set up the rest of my kids accounts.
I really like this app it could be better if only when I located where my child is it tells me the correct location and not the surrounding areas so I can actually pin it to be a safe place or not. Other then that big issue it's a cool app
I was so worried about my kids starting off with cellphones until this app was recommended to me. This makes it so much easier to monitor them. I had a different app that allowed me to tap into their cameras and microphone and that would be a perfect add in to this app. Ive already recommended this app to lots of friends and family.
