  • Lousy

    By Biggie804
    Kept kicking me out!!!
  • Horrible. Doesn’t work. Save your money.

    By Shawn D W
    What a garbage application. The precious safe family app limited my kids data usage per day and kept them from going over a data cap. This application never works. I restrict their usage and the app just stops working. For days at a time. I get text messages saying it has stopped pairing and i have to re-pair it. And then at the end of the day it stops pairing again. My data use went from controlled and always under our cap to AVERAGING 10% over our cap. The restrictions on time never mattered. The restrictions on content never mattered. This appears to be an app designed to take $8/mo from you and make you go to a higher data plan as well. 0 stars.

  • Doesn’t work

    By MEs Momma
    After spending an hour deleting and downloading it once again doesn’t work. Only works a day or two at a time then have to spend time installing again. Customer Service is a JOKE.

    I like secure family app but, it tells me 4 different locations for 4 people when I know that are in the same house. The accuracy could definitely be better.
  • Lousy App

    By 20parent19
    Worthless and dysfunctional app, poorly designed. They need to bring back smart limits as this replacement option is not acceptable.
  • Didn’t work - deleted

    By JBandrew
    This app didn’t work and is not ready for release. As a parent of a 17 year old - to be required to install a companion app on your child’s phone that is then supposed to be paired is not a realistic option. The entire premise of this app is to impose limits, controls, and oversight of a child. Any child above the age of 5 would known to just delete the companion app or take any number of steps to get around these efforts. The pairing didn’t work anyway. The capability to turn off data ALREADY exists in the standard clunky AT&T app and online. AND I already pay $$hundreds of dollars each month for this feature. Just add the ability to create schedules. For example, Google’s Free companion app to their Wifi routers allows one to create “pause” schedules for a device or collection of devices. So I have the ability to control my child’s WiFi access very simply and without paying for a service, but the simple act of turning off cellular data... lets all see if there is a way we can monetize that feature and greatly inconvenience our customers in the process. truly. Makes me consider other carriers and I have been with AT&T for more than 16 years.
  • Horrible

    By Erik & Heidy
    This app is a just horrible. Every time I want to check something I have to remove the app, download it again and settings up everything. I stared to used last night in just 14 hours I delete and downloaded this app 20 times because it doesn’t work properly, thanks god I still on my free first month period because I’m not paying for this.
  • Companion for my children

    By Ben and jenn
    This app is the worse app. It doesn’t really protect our children. It looses connection it it keeps asking for pairing the phone again .. You don’t really see any calls logs like before .. If there was zero star it would have been my review. You think after seeing all the negative reviews you’d fix your app. So fix it !
  • Frustrating

    By jarjop
    Why do I have to pay $8 a month for this app when ATT should provide these features free of charge? This app is clunky, buggy and doesn't pair with my kids phones easily. I have 5 phones with you and this app causues more problems than it is trying to help solve. Not worth the time of money. Frustrated!!
