This application is misleading as your kids will be able to bypass most restrictions. Also the app goes “offline” quite a bit requiring constant re-pairing of child and parent phone. ATT is charging me for an application that is NOT SECURE and kids can easily go online and look up on how to bypass this application.
All my kids have to undo it is uninstall the companion app. How to stop that? Also, RFE: add lunchtime exception to school day settings. My son would like to use his phone to listen to his music but the only option we have is for me to temporarily disable school settings during the day at lunch and re-enable thereafter, which is a total PITA.
I really liked this app but it doesn’t show an itemized list of the apps installed on the child’s phone yet it says thousands are have been blocked when you block the category. I need to be able to toggle all of the apps on or off.
Doesn’t take long before a teenager figures out that if they turn off VPN that it renders the app ineffective. Can’t use this app at all when they do this then you have to pair it again every time for GPS to work. Hard to use as a punishment, to see where they are or to set limits if they can easily turn it off. Very disappointed.
I have followed all of the instructions a carefully, and the only thing this app does is track my child’s phone location (which i can already do on find my friends). I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app on my phone and my child’s phone, unpairing and pairing, turning phones on and off, nothing works. Called att and they have no clue other than uninstalling and reinstalling app. Trying on an iPhone 11 so I’m not sure why i can’t get it to work.
Teenager figured out workaround on content restrictions and access to internet via hotspot. Even when we used this app to pause internet data, teen could still use AT&T’s hotspot on a laptop at all hours. We would subscribe again if AT&T allows parents better control over daily data usage for teenagers.
It doesn’t block content well at all. Guess my son gets to watch porn after all
This app is nice to have but lately it won’t zoom in to their location. It’s giving a huge circle on their whereabouts about a 4 mile area . Very hard to determine where they are actually at.
I used this app to prove to my ex-spouse that the kids were taken out of state against court orders That the parent was lying about their location. Lately the cell tower triangulation has been horrible, used to give a few hundred meters but now it’s always a 4 mile radius,If you have the app Open long enough it might find smaller radius but it’s rare not sure what has changed
The app has some good features, but I was surprised it didn’t have the option to block Discord message app. It’s extremely popular. I’d like to be able to put time limits on the social media apps instead of blocking totally or giving free reign. Ex: one hour on social media as opposed to hours and hours. I am very surprised that with it being ATT that I can’t block certain numbers. We have a problem with a kid that I’d like to be able to easily block with the app.
