Boomerang Parental Control and Screen Time app

Offers in-app purchases

Boomerang establishes screen time and boundaries for your child’s Android device. It also helps you start conversations with your child about their device usage, good apps, bad apps, web browsing, video viewing and more.

App Control: Per app daily timer, control and monitor the apps your kids install and use - approve or block newly installed from the Play Store and other sources. Start conversations about your child’s interest in certain apps and how they heard about them. Get notified if a “Vault App” was installed before it becomes a problem.

Flexible Screen Time: Keep tabs on device usage, app usage, encouraging your child’s digital wellbeing - set daily device time limits and schedules. Review their usage with our detailed per app reporting.

Call and Text Messaging Safety: Contact us on how to enable these features. Monitor your child’s phone and receive notifications when text messages contain bad words or unknown contacts. Our keyword dictionary can be used to detect language that may be related to cyberbullying, harassment or worse.

Screen Time Schedules: Set device downtime at bedtime - Put an end to games, social media and other distractions when kids should be charging up their batteries (oh and charge the devices outside of their room too).

Per App Daily Limits: Once you have a device limit, continue to optimize your child's screen time by setting individual daily limits on individual apps that may be used too much inside the daily allocation (examples like social media apps or streaming apps).

Safe Browsing: Monitor your child's web history with our free fully featured safe browser, SPIN, with enforced Google SafeSearch and millions of bad websites blocked (like pornography, nudity, drugs and gambling). Boomerang's app blocker technology blocks all known web browsers so your child will always have a safe browsing experience via SPIN.

Location Safety: GPS tracking and location - locate your child devices remotely by installing Boomerang on your parent device in Parent Mode.

► Safer Videos: Boomerang provides reports on viewed videos and search history. Enable Restricted Mode in the YouTube app, then block access to this setting by reading our how-to here:

Educate: Encourage good apps and great screen time experiences - encourage the use of educational apps that do not count down screen time or set them to always allowed to work beyond all screen time limits.
