  • App does not work

    By Ruan12121212
    I can never get this app to work, let alone track my sons phone. It worked for about a week. Than it stopped. I should be able to search him, without it being downloaded on his phone also. He is 16 years old. All he has to do is delete the app & it no longer tracks him.
  • Parent protection

    By daniev2012
    I enjoy the fact I can monitor and block certain things from my daughter. In this technology immersed world it is hard to keep your child innocent and protected but this app has helped me to do just that.
  • App not working

    By doykestownhoppue
    App was hard to install and it was difficult to find out how to add a parent. Did get help from tech support but it took a long time. The written instructions should be much better. App was working great for a couple weeks then stopped working. Could not find any answers anywhere. Still trying to figure what it stopped turning off my daughters phone.
  • Family plan

    I love it! I would recommend for anyone that has tweens/teens! Great for setting limits on their phones and who/when they can talk!
  • Does not work

    By are you smarter than a teen
    So my teenager does something with the vpn and it overrides all of the restrictions. Needless to say it does not work and but Verizon charges a monthly fee for this feature that is so useless.
  • Give it a try

    By Fufufifigi
    This app has been hugely helpful in monitoring how much data my kids use, where they are and blocking what we need to without arguments, confiscating devices or surprise charges to our total bill
  • Super Improvements

    By Patreffic
    When Verizon changed platforms for their smart family it was the best thing they could have done!! This one is super easy to use as compared to the awful one before and if you need to make changes it takes less than a minute to adjust limits and restrictions!! Good job!!
  • Such a disappointment. Can’t believe I am paying for this.

    By Pippin&Merry
    This app is just an excuse to take my money. It seemed to work for a time, but now I can’t set limits on content. And the app is limiting data when I told it not to. Confused.
  • Highly useful!!

    By AaronLingenfelter
    This is a terrific application! I realize that certain “stalker” types might find a way to abuse the control, but for our family, it’s an amazing tool! It keeps everyone safer with the location sharing, allows my wife and I to monitor the kids’ activities without invading their individual privacy. I’d give it 5 stars if it showed more than 5 days of data. There should be an “archive” option, to semi-permanently record phone/text history into an intuitive graph within the cloud, as an upgrade option at an extra $1.99 per month +/- to the end user. Then, I’d give it 5 stars!
  • Terrible. Save your hard earned $$!

    Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Verizon tier 1 and tier 2 techs are absolutely useless! VZW service has been steadily declining.
