Poor website classification Many websites have a status of Unclassified that my daughter needs access to for school. It is not possible to add a specific website to allowed list without granting access to full unclassified category. This is not good and does not make sense. We should have option to permit specific sites.
Not consistent The good: finally got it to block porn sites in the web browsers. I get alerts if attempts are made to view blocked sites and if time limits are reached The bad: Nothing else seems to work. Despite getting alerts on, for example, time, the app reports there is no activity for the current period. Same goes for internet, text messages, etc. Tech support was not helpful. Biggest problem is it doesn't block built in apps. Searching porn using Google App and clicking images reveals inappropriate images.
Nice But, most of the features are not free..I still use it for monitoring web pages, but I use sreen time the most and it's free. Kids stop complaining. When you are able to paid for your phone or buy your own computer and internet then you can scream.
Useless This app simply does not work. I have the premier anti-virus and loaded family two nights ago, wouldn't work, reloaded, logged out, logged in. It shows my daughter's phone, but won't retrieve the location and shows no activity, even though I've generated activity myself on her phone.
Doesn't work The app for parents is slow and doesn't always update Kids rules. Plus my son can get around it. He manages to get around it and turn it off. Same with Norton app lock. My son also changes the times. There's no push notification to prompt parent to know.
Very disappointed with the tracking feature. We followed behind our child and the locator never moved from the starting point. I was getting on the child about not being where they said they'd be. Well now I feel bad because your tracker DOESN'T WORK! Plus if I want to open a text, I have to click on it at least twice for it to open. And now that you've reach out via email, I respond on the links and get robo emails that the address is not monitored. Everything on the phone has been turned on per instructions prior to me addressing these issues.
