  • Will not stay connected

    I downloaded this app and pay a monthly fee in order to set limits on my son’s phone. When the phones are paired it seems to work well, but I continuously have to re-pair them! It is also of note that when you have it set for time restrictions it does not prevent them from connecting to WiFi. With free WiFi almost everywhere you go this makes the restrictions useless.
  • Awesome!

    Who knew the limits you could put on kids’ phones? This is an amazing plan. I really never have to take the phone away I just restrict their use via my app. I love this!
  • Good Start for Families

    This app is nicely integrated with my account but could benefit from greater integration with iPhone features for connected families. Also several desired features require an upgrade.
  • Apps

    It seems to work for restricting Times abs data usage. But it doesn’t work for blocking apps. I have them blocked as my kids can use them Anyway.
  • Horrible app

  • So easy!

    By Manager Mommy
    So easy to use and love the updates on my kiddos. Time restrictions are awesome for keeping screen time under control.

    I wish I could limit the amount of text to a phone number.
  • Greedy!!!

    By JR-IBC-BK
    The fact that Verizon is one of the highest phone bills in the nation then they want $10 a month to control the account!!! Stinking greedy!
  • Great way to keep track of family members.

    The only problem is that it can take hours to update .
