This app has changed over the past couple of years. It's not as effective and I feel it's lost some value. There are many quirks and flaws as of late. Now the past 2 days, I can't even close the app on my own phone. And it has waaaaay too many updates with no warning so unless I discover it myself, I don't know about it in time, which affects the parental controls. I'm ready to finally switch parental apps I think after at least 5 years using this one. Feeling very frustrated with it.

Hi Andréa, looks like we didn't get the chance to help you via our support team (couldn't find any tickets with 'Andréa Lawson') so not sure of the difficulties you've experienced. We normally email our users when major updates are released and let Google Play update other minor updates. Would love to hear from you @

We have had this app on our all 3 of our children's phones for the last 3 years & it is great. I love to be able to see the texting conversations back & forth. My kids know that I can, and we have had had a lot of good discussions because of it. I also love seeing their location at any time. It has been a great help to block inappropriate websites. Thank you to it's developers!!
