How to get Started with your Family

Features Parents Love (some kids too!)
► 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: https://goo.gl/Do8h9a.
► 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.
► Awesome Sleeps: 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).
► 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.
► 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.
► Location Safety: GPS tracking and location - locate your child devices remotely by installing Boomerang on your parent device in Parent Mode.
► 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.
► Boomerang supports Android 5.x devices and higher.

Boomerang Parental Control is best introduced when you get your child their first tablet or their first smartphone. If introducing it to a teen, for best results, get their buy-in as they already fully know how addictive their device is..
