    By please dont get this app!
    i truly hate this app. i am a thirteen year old girl and have no privacy. i have six siblings and i am the second oldest. i have a fifteen year old brother who has as much freedom as you can think of, but the two year difference is a huge difference to them. my mom says that i am very irresponsible, this is because she got all my texts and my friend stole my phone and was texting inappropriate things. i told this to my mom but she didn’t believe me. so she downloaded this app. right when she got it i knew that my life was going to be miserable. you may be thinking “oh your over reacting”. i am not. this is the complete truth. when first downloaded vpn made my phone extremely laggy. they also put a two hour time limit on my phone. i am a teenager who needs to talk to my friends! so i politely asked my mom to turn it off, but no, it just went to four hours. when i kept complaining it was finally taken off. but my mother thinks i don’t get enough sleep, which i do get the recommenced amount of sleep. so she turned “lost iphone” on, which is you can set a time where your child’s lte goes off. she set it for 8pm - 6am meaning i cannot use my phone for a total of 11 hours. i feel disconnected from the entire world when this happens. but that is not all. the only social media apps i have are snapchat and youtube, and i only use apple messages to text. this app told my mom that i was on this app called kik talking to someone for forty minutes and i can assure you the app kik has never been on my phone. i was grounded for so call lying to my mom because according to my mom the app doesn’t lie and i do. i even showed her it was never on my phone but she still didn’t believe me. i also wake up at 530 for school and my alarms don’t go off due to this app. i do not recommend this app. just because i am a child and finally have “limits” doesn’t mean i can’t feel upset. if you would like to purchase the app please don’t waste your time.
  • This app is great when it works!

    I love the idea of Qustodio and when it’s working I can see where my kids are, what they’re doing and limit their time. However, it regularly stops working on my son’s phone. It’s very frustrating!
  • Hello

    By life is difficult
    This app is trash it makes me feel unloved n it ruined my life. My mom put it on my phon. Us kids are growing up that doesn’t mean to look at every move we do. It’s not fair that we are based off of our parents life is different from theirs and yes I understand they want what’s best but do y’all really know what’s best for us?
  • Good but not enough

    By CBCA Parent
    The Program is fair, it doesn’t catch all apps being installed. There are worm arounds but it does give you a small window into a Kids online presence. The panic button and location tracking, not so good on iOS .
  • Love it!

    By MiTwinsMom
    My son was having trouble resisting the urge to be on his phone in school. I use the restricted hours so he can’t use it during g school hours. It has worked well as he recently got a new phone and didn’t realize the app want working but continued to not use his phone during the day. I’m reinstalling it on the new phone and we only use the program for its restricted hours.

    This is an amazing app that allows you to monitor your child’s activity and help keep them safe on the internet.
  • The perfect app...if it worked.

    By Khkh1818
    This app is everything I was looking for! But it crashes daily, sometimes hourly, sometimes even more. I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall multiple times per day or week. Customer support keeps saying they’re “working on it but can’t give me a timeline.” It’s 100% exactly what I was looking for and if it worked the way it should I would give it five stars. But it defeats the whole purpose if I have to keep deleting and reinstalling.
  • Very impressive software

    By Paranguaraccutirimicuaro
    This is a well written program. It is no substitute for attentive parenting so if that is your goal you will need to keep looking. Regardless of the quality of the code, there will always be holes in the fence. Bad materials are looking for your kids, they don't need to be looking for it.
  • One is too high a score

    A complete nightmare. Completely ineffective. My son found a way to access inappropriate content almost immediately. Spare yourself the pain and suffering. Customer support was equally ineffective.
  • It’s ok, I wouldn’t reccomend

    By gmj43
    I have average kids, no technology prodigies. But after a few days my kids have found a way to disable on their phones to bypass the settings. If these were fixed I would rate it higher. I have not been able to see text message content as the app promises but maybe I just don’t know how to do it. Great concept but falls short.
