Having the wolves guard the henhouse? Really? Having to install a companion app is a nonstarter. The concept is ridiculous. BRING BACK SMART LIMITS!
All the kid has to do is disable the VPN then they can go right back to sneaking the app in. We already have tracking on maps through family share so that feature is redundant. Why would there not at least be a PIN to turn the VPN on and off? If the app is already running it doesn’t lock it down. $7.99 a month?!! Took a 13 year old girl 10 minutes to get around.
I’m not getting texts from the other phone as I have it set up to do.
This seemed like a good idea to put on my pre-teens phone but it doesn’t even work half the time. It daily sends messages saying “phone settings have changed causing protection features to stop working” then sends a link to “fix” the problem but it never fixes the problem and I get the message again the next day. My daughter also said it causes her phone to glitch. I will be canceling this
Apps like this and others like it like life360 are just violating our child’s privacy and it’s not right.
This app is a waste of money it does not work
My daughter has an iPhone & iPad... I set up the Secure Companion App and paired it to her phone. I don’t see anyway to pair her iPad to the Secure Family App... Not being able to pair all their devices makes this Service useless..
I have two big issues with the app: 1) you can limit screen time by time slots, but not by total hours/day. I need both. Want to lock access during school hours, but then let’s say limit internet/game access to one hour on school days, and maybe three hours on weekend days. Can’t do that. 2) when I “pause” internet from the parent app it does not consistently shut down internet on my kid’s phone. Right now she is supposed to be paused but is playing away on Roblox no problem. Yesterday pause worked no problem.
No other mdm profiles installed, help!
