Qustodio is a free parental control app that offers simple tools to manage kids’ screen time, filter content and monitor or block apps kids use. Best of all it automagically reports kids’ online activity to you once installed. Getting Started: First install Qustodio on your child’s iPhone or iPad, you’ll notice that inappropriate websites have been blocked automatically. Then install Qustodio on your own smartphone to monitor their activity. Qustodio will provide you a daily report of all your child’s activity in your inbox. To manage your child’s web rules or screen time, just open our desktop Family Portal (https://family.qustodio.com/) from any web browser. Want to protect more devices? You can download Qustodio to any desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. As a parent, you can manage or supervise any device directly from the Qustodio app. What does Qustodio do on iOS? Web filtering and monitoring: On your child’s device you’ll automatically get free web monitoring using our secure VPN technology. Your kids will be protected from inappropriate content or any site you choose whether they use Safari, Chrome or any other web browser. Screen Time Controls: Qustodio can control Screen Time. Our technology uses will allow you to set a time schedule or a quota of when your kids are allowed to use their device. When time is up, internet and access to all apps rated for users 4+ will be disabled. App Controls: Qustodio can report, monitor and/or block more than 50 popular apps used by kids, and you can view their usage. Free vs. Premium With Qustodio Free you can protect up to one kid’s device free, and monitor from as many parents’ devices as you want.

  • App needs passcode protection

    By Jaap Shane
    If your kid gets a hold of your unlocked phone there’s nothing stopping her from unblocking all their devices. There is no passcode or fingerprint to protect the app from unauthorized use. It only takes a few seconds Kaspersky gets this right. You can too.

  • Help! Please fix this app ASAP!

    This app used to work a couple years ago on iPhone. You could install it and then you would have to login to the portal to get a password to uninstall it. Now it just uninstalls without any password or the one you unlock your phone with. It can be uninstalled by anyone in a few seconds! What about children who use iPhones? What about adults trying to filter their internet on iPhones? This makes the app useless now. Please fix this. Fix the MDM management. Not many people own both iPhones and Mac computers to use it. Why does mdm only work on Mac computers?Considered buying a used Mac but why do I need an extra pc I’m not going to use just to fix the phone. Many people have windows computers. If you need to make an app for windows to fix mdm please do that or make it like it used to be by requiring to get a password to uninstall through portal. Yes Qustodio works great on windows! It used to work great on iPhone before iOS 11 came out. It used to install with mdm erasing the iPhone and putting the restrictions on and be impossible to uninstall without logging into Qustodio portal to get an uninstall password all without an extra computer. Please fix this app in iPhone ASAP! I’m only giving it this many stars because it works great for windows on the desktop.
  • Inconsistent service

    By Brchodzin
    Updated: I'm lowering my review from three stars to one, because of the inability to contact any live customer support. The app randomly started blocking voice mail (marked "always allow" in the rules), which is necessary for his job, and waiting two days for some kind of response is unacceptable. Would not recommend this app at all. (Original) When this app works, it’s great. Full access to the child’s device including text messages, to/from calls, websites browsed, apps used, etc. The problem is how inconsistently it actually works. It will often say the device is not being used, even when we’re in the same room and I see with my own eyes he's using his phone, the location tracker is offline for days at a time, some calls/texts don’t register in the timeline or on the report until days later if at all, and customer service is only accessible by email, with curt responses that don’t really give any information. For example, the response might be “device tracking is only available on Android.” Okay, it’s on Android so that’s not the problem, and is the issue being fixed? No information is given.
  • May have saved a life

    By Db5745
    This app very well may have saved my daughter’s life. Within 24 hours of setting up and installing I received an alert regarding a blocked site. The attempted site visit was a result from a google search for “what is the easiest way to kill yourself”. This was coming from my 11 year old daughters iPhone after she had gone to bed. I immediately went into her room and talked about what had occurred. Because of this we were able too work through an issue she had been holding in and is doing much better. I can’t say enough about his app and service. We also have it on her gaming computer. The features, instant alerts, and reporting site is fantastic. If you’re a parent get his service!!!
  • Im a kid

    By Whispers I don't know
    Ok so my parents have this app on my phone. The problem is that it DRAMATICALLY decreases your phones speed. If you were to pull up safari, it takes me a solid two minutes for anything to load. This also drains your battery life on your phone. My phone which is an iphone, just got its battery replaced and it still dies within two hours. You also cannot load any data or texts or call anyone if your vpn is diconnected. It may be by accident if you leave your house and are no longer able to connect to wifi. But it is a pain either way. Yes, it is great at tracking your phone usage. But you can also do that on your phone. You just go to setting and look at Battery Usage and it shows the amount of ime you have spent on apps. So parents, it is up to you, but take this information into mind before you use this app.
  • This does not work

    By Basketball girlfriend
    It dose not freeze when it is supposed to and it does it to early
  • My kids hate it. I love it. Hahahahaha

    By Panda in a Lambo
    They are locked down good.
  • Trial worked great, paid version failing

    By jb-martin
    I tried the trial for several days on several phones, and things went okay. As soon as I started the paid version, everything just stopped functioning. All phones show as offline on parent device, and kids phones just freeze on loading screen. I’ll provide an update if it starts working.
  • Tried it twice but not great

    By csmcsmcsmcsm
    We so wanted this app to work for us. I tried it two separate times. The big issue is that that didn’t seem to measure screen time in a way that was meaningful to us. The screen time that they showed didn’t match our experience. I asked the company and they said they measure screen time (the screen is on) and activity time (activity detected by vpn servers) but this doesn’t relate to screen time as experienced by our kids. Also, we received emails saying they had blocked sites that we didn’t try to access. Overall, not helpful to us....
