Disgusted and Frustrated This worked for the last couple of years and has just stopped. Tried everything to fix it - Sprint techs were useless - including hard resetting the phone and nothing works. Safely Family Utility, which must be installed on the child's phone for the mobile controls to work, has disappeared from the phone and is no longer in play store. Send link from my phone and it says "you have already given permission no further action required" and yet it doesn't work. Sprint still charges for the service though...
Locking the phone The night hours are set and the school hours are set yet it doesnt lock her phone during those times. I looked at the phone to make sure that it locked at the start of the night hours and it didnt lock at all. This app had to be created by a child to trick parents. A waste of my money and time setting it. My child deoesnt have to restart the phone, its just not locking. The worst app!
I jist download this app. and it seems like it is working. Hopefully it will work for good. My only problem is that I thought i should be able to read the text as they arrived, does anyone have this figure it out?. I want to able to read the text that my son recivied....pls let me know.
HELP I loved how my kid's phone would just turn off at night. It was a great discipline tool. Then she realized that if she was listening to Pandora while it was shutting off, then that app would stay on. Tonight I heard her still on the phone talking on Skype, AFTER it was shut off time. I don't see anything about disabling the camera etc. At least I can trust her not to delete the controls app altogether. How can I make it totally shut down?
SMC NO LONGER COMPATIBLE?! We had SMC working on a Galaxy S5 and Note 5 for about 2 years, along comes the Marshmallow update 6.0.1 and suddenly these devices are rendered as "device not compatible"?! So much for "works on all up to date Android devices". Really?! Safely Family Utility is no longer available on PlayStore for these devices.
Lock doesn't seem to work I love everything but the lock feature. I love being able to see who he is adding to his contact list and who he is texting. I set it to lock from 8pm to 7am and its set so that he is not able to use lock override. I picked up is phone at 9 and was able to play on it. I turned the screen on and off to see if it reset the lock screen and it did not. I then turned on and off the phone. Still no lock screen. I have the child app installed on his phone and received a message saying it was activated.
