Only works with nougat and up, good luck finding a kids tablet or mid range with such. I just got my 3 kids tablets 4 months ago, I'll just block their access with other stops like cleaner and app lock.
Just got 2 new s8+ phones. Locator only worked the first night. Now can't find the phone sitting right next to it. All other functions work. Have factory reset both phones multiple times. I only got this second line for this function. So it's useless for me.
I want to thank you for taking the time to make such a fantastic tool for parents! A few questions and suggestions... I have reviewed and tried several parental control apps; yours is my favorite so far. The problem is I have two children with iOS devices. Is this in the works to include iphones and ipads for kids? Other apps I have tried give me the ability to set up schedules. For example, I can set times when the phones automatically lock down for dinner, homework, school hours, bedtime, etc. While I love this ability, I would REALLY like to be able to customize lock down. My kids like listening to music at bedtime. Is it possible to lock down the phone at bedtime but allow only the music app to run? In my opinion and after hours of researching and trying a variety of apps, if Family Link included apple devices and had the ability to customize what is or isn't locked down, it would by far be the very best option out there for parental control!
Great app and features. If a contact management feature is added, you'll get the 5th star from me. I would like to only allow my kids to send and receive phone calls and text messages from the contacts I allow.
My "prepaid" card cannot be accepted" although it has money on it.. Google Family Link is only charging $0.30. You've got to be kidding me! If there was no money on my card it would've been declined. I don't understand why I need a credit card or bank debit card. Money is money...Whats the big issue Google??
UPDATED 7/16/17 A great start! Feature requests: 1) A way to see what apps are currently being used and by last 24 hours (currently it is 7 and 14 day) 2) Extend screen time, or group of apps, in specific increments. 3) Message my kids on their device to facilitate a dialogue but limit it to family link contacts only. 4) Set time limit a group of apps to encourage educational apps? 5) Remote install of apps by admin. **I also have 6 kids and I am married so "family" seems to be limited to 5 devices when it comes to content. Problem is I and wife have phone/tablet/PC. That's six devices between just us. Add in one device per kid and your up to 12. I wish their was a workable solution for this. I know many families with more Than 2 kids. Buying each app three times on different accounts gets unnecessarily burdensome. Charge me more somehow or at least have a way to increase number of devices.
