There is a glitch in the programming when used on a lg stylo. If i do not lock the settings, which i didn't want to do so my son could move apps to SD without my permission, then on reboot, it uninstalls itself. It does not happen every time but why am i paying for this if it doesn't work properly. I've had to reinstall a bunch of times and yes I've had his phone in my hand and watched it happen. UPDATE: My son consistently gets into SAFE MODE even though it is supposedly blocked via the app. I am coming to believe it is junk.
Pretty decent. Only tracks chrome browser so make sure to disable the other browsers. Also, I wish there was an easier way for the child to see how much time has been used in each app and how much time is left. There is a child mode where it is available but it's multiple clicks and not easy for a child to see.
is garbage. I'm not just saying it because I'm a kid and I'm on the "wrong side " of the app. It was my idea for my parents to monitor my devices to ensure my safety and to rebuild their trust with me. And it does such a thing. My complaint is the fact that my parents havent blocked half the things this app said they did. Why the hell would my notification bar be block? If I'm not connected to internet everything on my device is blocked and it gros quite annoying and I am sure my parents find it quire annoying having to unblock things over and over again. I recommend resulting to another app for your child's protection.
Great app... Very easy to use with Many options and flexibility. It is missing a few Key tools in order to get higher ratings such as 1.Lock New Apps installed so parents can review 2. Ability to lock phone from parent app and choose a time limit before it's auto unlocks 3. An actual Parent App instead of just links to the website 4. Email tracking and keyword notification 5. Photos taken log. Most importantly is the lack of a true Parent App that allows a parent to control the child's phone without having to log into their website...plus the phone lock from that parent app. MMGuardian has a real functional parent app and a lock screen tool... But their date/time limit control utility is not as user-friendly although at least they have a true functional parent app. Mobil Fence has a much better yearly price and they give you 30 days to test it.
(Alcatel ...When my kids power off thier phones and back on the app is disabled. I have spent a ton of money on alternative apps tring to keep my children monitored. I have found many other apps that do not disable, but none with the depth of control Mobile Fence has. Even with the alternative monitoring apps on mobile fence is disabled on restart. Which makes the app all together worthless!)
Have used this app for a couple of years. It is well worth it's cost. I don't think you could ask for better. The monitored children are not too disrupted by its use and we don't stand over them like ogres with it. The app has all these capabilities.
Most of comment 1-star ratings are by child.
