  • Thank you!

    By acakristie
    Thank you for putting MOST of the parental control features I need into one place. Up to this point I have had to use three different apps to monitor my kids. I love the content control feature! I am begging you to please also add the option to place time limits on wifi app usage - I.e. Ability to set a limit on how long the kids can spend on YouTube or Facebook each day. Also I'd like to be able to view their internet history from the app on my phone. And also GPS tracking. Those are the only three features I still need to use another app for.
  • Works great if I could log in!

    I got the app and set it up to block my kids' iPhones but every time I try to check their status, I can't log in. It says network error. Why couldn't it use my fingerprint like the Verizon app? Even when I check the box that says "keep me logged in", it still makes me log in every time! Why?!? Fix this and I'll give you 5 stars
  • Can't even log in

    Downloaded the app for the first time. Can't even log in; I tap the fields where I'm supposed to enter my phone number and password, and nothing happens.
  • Useless

    By mlauren10
    This app is useless. I blocked Snapchat, but the notifications still display on my daughter's phone, (which is like torture for her to see, especially since now she can't read any of the messages). It really should disable every feature in the app 100%. The accuracy of the texts and calls is terrible. My daughter and I were texting, and the app didn't reflect any of this activity! Features that would be helpful would be: 1) A sync of phone Contacts so that when looking at the phone number in the Verizon Family app, it would show a name associated to it, and 2) Visibility into the kid's chat and picture logs to view more specifics, 3) The ability to see all other chat apps on the phone. In my daughters scenario, I know other chat apps are being used since we blocked Snapchat, and it would be nice to be able to see what apps those are, and have the ability to disable them too.
  • Horrible

    By Grsdgtdg
    This app is very bad it does not help my son be productive. It causes arguments and battles in the family. I don't recommend it at all. It is sad. NEVER USE IT I BEG OF YOU!!
  • Awful execution, good idea

    By TTS_121418
    The idea of the app is awesome, but it doesn't work. I'm constantly having to reset the filters because stay. Not all features work with my son's iPhone. Very disappointed.
  • UPDATED: Much better navigation.

    By TakeItBackNow
    Updated: New UI is much easier to navigate. I can quickly find the limit controls and adjust them. Original: For an extra $5 a month, you could design an easier navigate app. I find I have to log into Verizon on my laptop to adjust controls, because it's impossible to find in this app. It's useless, but aversion forces you to download it when you add the FamilyBase to your plan.
  • Great Patent supporter!

    By Sir read a lot
    Wonderful app! I would recommend it for several reasons. The biggest being ALL monitoring and blocking in one location.
  • Bring Back Phone Lock

    By GolfCartBobby
    New update took away instant Phone Lock with data AND Wi-Fi. Time to unsubscribe from this service.
  • Overdue

    By Shannjill
    Finally! This app has sucked for so long! MUCH better. More user friendly for sure.
