Description

The Norton Family app¹, from the makers of Norton Security, helps teach your kids safe habits for Web exploration and helps you stay in the know about where your kids are. “Norton Family Premier offers an impressive range of parental control and monitoring features for parents of today’s hyper-connected kids.” ~ Neil J.

Please use the Norton Family portal for configuration and monitoring. Stay tuned for updates on the availability of our app for parents’ use. Download the Norton Family app to your kids’ iOS devices, which will install the Norton browser for enhanced protection. - Web Supervision: Configure rules in the Norton Family portal to control your child’s access to websites. When your child accesses any of the blocked websites in the Norton browser, you will be notified in the portal. - Location Tracking²: Turn on Location Supervision³  on your child’s device to track their current location, and view the Location history in the Norton Family portal. - Search Supervision: Track your child’s search activities through the Norton browser in the Norton Family Portal - Video Supervision²: View the Youtube videos your child watched in the Norton browser in the Norton Family portal. - Instant Lock: Grant or block access to all apps, browsers, games and more from the Norton Family portal when you need to enforce a break. Parents and kids can still connect to each other when the kid's device is in Lock mode. - Use the different forms of activity-tracking reports in the Norton Family portal mentioned above (30-day history) to gain insights into how and where your kids spend their time online, so you can see what their interests are and help keep them safe.     IMPORTANT NOTE: Please disable Safari or any other browser and the YouTube app so that your children’s activity can be monitored. ¹ Norton Family account required to use the Norton Family app ² Premium feature, which will be available until the 30-day trial is over ³ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life INTERNET SAFETY FOR KIDS AND TEENS Online safety is a growing concern for children and parents. Common threats regarding Internet family safety include: cyber bullying, obscene or offensive content, pornography, hateful messages, and sexual predators. Children are naturally curious and may not always know when an online situation is unsafe. Fortunately, Norton Family can help monitor your child’s online activity.

    I used the time monitoring portion of Norton Family to restrict our two sons phones from 10am to 5:30 am. During this time it removed the icons from the phones. At 5:30 am the icons did not return. I called support and they could not see in THEIR system what was being transmitted to the phone app. I disabled the phone/iPad feature and after an hours the apps returned. Even though it was disabled the next evening it turned the icons off, at 5:30am again it did not turn back on and never did. I tried everything to gain control of the phone, but since when it took away the icons it took the norton app too, i cannot get into the app to put in the over ride password. I cant remove the app from the phone until it is unlocked and can not unlock it. We will be cancelling this service and going to Mcafee!!!
  • A waste of time

    This app doesn’t really seem to work all that well. It doesn’t support the monitoring of safari and seemingly deletes it. Then there’s the forced vpn. It’s annoying, period. It doesn’t allow the download of other vpn’s and the vpn the app comes with can protect against inappropriate content but doesn’t help with the internet speed at all. The worst part is that it’s a complete requirement to use WiFi. No vpn, no WiFi, no Internet. I don’t really see myself using the safe search all that much and unless certain improvements are made, I wouldn’t recommend this app. Please look for another family protection app that actually works.

    Let me say this nicely; It’s not worth it at all! Please turn around and continue doing whatever you were doing before! This app is VERY PROTECTIVE! I have 3 accounts; my phone, my I Pad and my Computer. Once I open up to see that ALL of my apps were missing on my I Pad. I was shocked and thought that someone stole my identity or something. But no! It was this Stupid App. It took away my Apps

    If you are a parent and download this on your kids phone your kid will definitely hate you and will probably just try to hide more things from you
  • Difficulty to change users

    Won’t allow me to set my phone as parent. Difficult to get customer support.
  • It has great potential

    But my son keeps circumventing the app when at school. I have his phone locked through the website but he keeps getting it unlocked without using the pin code. My only notice that he’s done such is when I check the website and find out that he’s been using apps I have blocked. It’s very frustrating that it keeps happening. I’m not happy that I have paid money for this app and it doesn’t seem to actually work.

    was working fine until the recent forced vpn install. Now, when on cellular data, it’s burning through data like crazy. but when i turn off cellular data for norton, it also stops other apps from working, like Life360 tracker. i tried to turn off the vpn manually but it comes back on as soon as i open the norton browser. wish they would go back to how it was two weeks ago - before the vpn!

    i am one of the unlucky kids whose parents won’t trust me on my phone i bought myself. with my own money. by the way i am in high school. anyway the app never works correctly on my iphone and it’s very frustrating because every night it makes 90% of my apps disappear and every morning my mom has to reset norton for them to reinstall. i have about 30 ish apps and i have to regroup all of them every day. it’s very frustrating. also for those kids who want to get rid of it it’s very easy. go to settings>general>device management>management profile>remove management.
