The tracking worked somewhat. I never fully trusted it. It did let me know when arrivals and departures occurred though delayed in my opinion. The suspend and resume internet function didn’t seem to work at all and I am unsure about content blocking. In my opinion not worth the money.
I have used this app for over a year now. I have been waiting patiently for bugs to be fixed and it to work properly. The concept is awesome, but it doesn’t block apps you chosen or pause internet. Not to me they can simply delete the companion and/or turn location app to bypass parental settings. There are also times I receive msgs stating she has turned off her location and she is with me and hasn’t done that. I’ll be back when it’s better.
Downloaded the app. All the limits do is shut off your wifi/internet. If kids have movies or anything downloaded, they can still access them. And my daughter was able to delete the app off her phone without any issues.
Add choice to block specific words.
For Parental control, why would the child have the ability to delete the Companion App on their phone? What would be the point then for a Parent to have Parental control and then have to pay for it?
Links generated for kids’ phones don’t work. Then once installed and subscription started, the Companion app is even worse, because it literally does nothing! It opens and asks you to pair, it that’s it, no instructions or any way to actually pair. I can’t believe they charge money for a service that doesn’t even work, when it should just be free to customers. Garbage.
During the trial period I was able to better track than with the paid version. Waste of money. Paid version was off by miles sometimes.
I will be deleting this app it's no worth the 7.99 a month I spend. This app does not display my child's accurate location. If he's in his room it shows that he is away from the house. If we are in the same room it may show that he's blocks away from the house. I have to log in and out several times before it gives me an adequate reading that my child is at home. Waste of money.
Prior to Att we had Verizon. The parent control app was way better. I didn’t have to install apps on the kid phones to control the phone. All done through our account. There is nothing to prevent the kid from uninstalling the app to get around the controls.
It's not working right
