-7/5, this app is a literal pos. Everything you would expect from it(blocking & filters, data pausing, etc) is buggy and pretty much unfinished. The pausing schedule is really buggy and sometimes pauses me at a complete random time. I also have to power off my device for a few minutes(not restart) after I get unpaused. Blocking is also broke, not letting me use any google services (including Google Classroom), Spotify, and Netflix even though they are all not on the filter my dad set up.

This app is not child proof. If you click on the VPN icon on the notification bar, a screen pops up for a split second that says deactive. If you are fast enough a child can deactive the companion app and all the controls to go along with it. Go ahead kids, give it a try. Maybe when the parents complain enough, Verizon will fix it. When it does work, the app is great.

Horrid app. Blocks the dumbest things and can't function properly. Ruins the point of having a phone. Blocks things that aren't even inappropriate. It's annoying and completely ruins the function of the phone. I would rate it 0 stars if it was possible. Location is also off point, much easier to just send my location via. messages.
