  • This app is Great

    By Tealee07
    Would be nice if we had a choice of main apps like google to unlock without unlocking them all. Especially when technology requires kids to work on things in school on the internet
  • Apps

    By hfalls
    It alerts when a new app has been downloaded but then when you tap to review it states error occurred 500. So you can’t look at the new app downloaded, and you also cannot delete apps on your child’s phone or reject what they are trying to download or did download if you don’t like it .
  • Text Messages

    By Luigimon24
    I cannot read the text messages from others. It comes as a “text file”. Makes monitoring difficult.
  • Terrible

    By Ushejsjaiajwusjsia hahahahaha
    I work in IT and after hours of work around I got it to work for a few hours and screwed my kids phone up and had to reset it.
  • This app was good at first

    By mewmew#love cats
    This app w@s really great at first but then it started to glitch on me really bad so now I’m not shire I like it as much.
  • Please don’t use this

    By sage ゚✧*:・゚✧
    Spying on your kids is an invasion of their privacy and of their friends if you spy on their texts. If you want to make sure they’re safe on the internet teach them about internet safety.
  • Stop

    By hhhsmith
    Stop spying on your kids phones, I get it you want them to be safe but that is a COMPLETE invasion of privacy to your child. And if they know you are spying on them they most likely will lose all your trust. Not only if you spy on them you are also spying on their friends, maybe their friend is gay but has homophobic parents and know you know something personal that they didn't want you to know. Or a friend texted your child opening up that they got raped, and thats not any of your business. So stop! If you want your child to show you what they are doing make a BOND, not a spy parent.
  • Awful

    By krisbrew2
    Awful customer service. Won’t give refunds when billing mistake are made. No response when I emailed for help.
  • Cancel

    By Tobster girl
    I want out of this!
  • Iphone

    By cocoholla20
    Doesn’t work on iPhones for some reason idk
  • No

    By no done
    Does not work
  • Wanted to try

    By Tabbi-Rose
    All the negative comments scared me off. I decided to use Kidslox instead.
  • Total bait and switch

    By Rancho5
    $14.99/mo. for a “free” app. Scam. Do not DL.
  • Great concept poor reality

    By Billybobnod
    Everything you see in the other reviews. I hope they get it figured out.
  • Review

    By myphonenumberblocked
    It said nothing about in app purchases...
  • This app

    By Jwin30
    First, I got wrangled for the 7 day fee tho g. It doesn’t have “superpowers” while trying out but does tell you about apps to worry about (you can figure this out on an instagram meme.) anyway, less than 24x7 house later I was charged an irreversible $140 to spy on my kids. Fine. But it doesn’t tell you anything g more than the home screen. Thanks dumb app. Not only am I locked into a year of the worst app, that does nothing, for $140, it also doesn’t do wa Hat I was hoping for it to do. If you want to keep tabs on a teen (age 15-17)- and make sure what they text/save/etc is cool, this is NOT the app for you. U If you want to prevent an 8 year old from social medi and you are dumber thN a rock, this is the app for you.
  • Texts won’t update.

    By Annalise88
    I’ve liked this app so far but the last 11 dayS the texts haven’t updated. I have it linked where it needs to be linked and yet the texts won’t update but the searches will.
  • Question

    By chickiechuck
    If I delete the app after just downloading , will it quit the free trial or keep going and charge me for the monthly service ?

    By leilaslave
    DONT DO It!! This app is so poorly thought out I don’t even know where to start. Yes you can see what app your child downloaded, but you can’t see anything they’ve done on or with it! You can only block every app on their phone or none at all. you can see some texts, but they populate so slow you only see what they haven’t recently deleted. need i go on? OH AND THAT TRIAL PERIOD?? IF YOU FORGET TO CANCEL, like i did when my mom died, they tell you tough luck! over 120$ for garbage!
  • Not happy

    By 7mortslloh
    After the 3 month free trial there was continued promises to fix problems on their end so we stuck with it but the solution they eventually found months later was not one that would work for us. Attempted to cancel (we did not and could not use it), but they replied that we did not have a legitimate reason to cancel. The logistics of the program we initially signed up for changed and so we are not understanding why this is not “legitimate.” Disappointing.
  • Phone

    By Quatilla
    Will my child know that I’m tracking her phone ?
  • Stopped working

    By Texas mom Andy
    It worked for a while and then just stopped. Unfortunately I paid a year in advance and it hasn’t worked in weeks. I have “reset” with directions and emailed for help but still says not connected. There is NO way to get your money back once purchased despite it not working. Apple parental controls are more reliable. You can not see texts but it sets limits on phone. This app has not allowed me to see texts and wasted 140.00 dollars!!!
  • Difficult app to set up

    By RubsomebacononSQ
    Took way too long to set up and my teen was still able to delete it!
  • Frustrating

    By SoAl_888
    The set up was extensive and complicated, after setting up I still received numerous notifications saying something went wrong. I could not keep up with the constant and continuous errors which had to be fixed on my child’s phone settings. It’s incredibly frustrating when this app needs more attention when I got it because it was going to give me a peace of mind.
  • Problem

    By ELC Ng Mike
    I had a problem to use it. I had no idea how to use it. Please help.
  • I love this app!

    By Brookie E
    My experience with SaferKid has been seamless. It’s such a great app and makes me so much more comfortable with my kids having cell phones. Highly recommend!
  • I have a quick question

    By Idkfwj357
    This app looks amazing, and I’m totally interested in utilizing your product. One thing I’m confused about though is what your system does automatically vs what I can program it to do. Can I choose what kind of web content to block/ allow, or are some things blocked automatically, with no option for adjustment?
  • Don’t waste your money

    By Momma Bear'n
    This app does NOT work! They are more than happy to keep taking your money but I have NEVER been able to get it to work like it’s supposed to. And when you think it might be working, you have to constantly get on your kid’s phone and update it. Huge disappointment. 👎🏼👎🏼
  • Too slow, making it irrelevant...Canceled!

    By Branpet
    Took forever to synchronize texts, it was easier to just go to my child’s phone... which is free! Texts coming in a week later makes them irrelevant, thus making this app useless. I expect a lot more for the $ you charge. But I’m back to just making a cursory check of my child’s phone every night, and the rest of the apps, downloads, screen time, etc. can be managed by my phone as parent, for free. It’s in your settings.
  • Ok, but could be better

    By iPhoneUser2367
    It tracks messages ok, but only updates every 6 hours, and isnt very reliable at that. It should also track what email accounts are used and what is sent/received, and needs to track phone calls as well. +1 for effort, but much room for improvement

    By Phantomplayz17
    If the developer see’s this, I really need help!! When I first got the app, which was at 9:50 or something close, almost all the apps were gone from my phone, and I thought it was the bedtime mode. But in the morning, the apps were still gone! And when I went onto the App Store to try and get my games back, I couldn’t download ANYTHING. Couldn’t download games, safari, FaceTime, camera, anything! Someone please help!!
  • Disappointed

    By Lala9981
    It was a lengthy process to get it all set up and now it doesn’t even work properly. Great idea, but not well executed I guess. The texts have not updated in over 24 hours, so by that time it is useless. I will be searching for a new app to better suit my needs.
  • Does the job

    By tori81811
    Really good app does what it says just takes a while to see text messages and won’t let you look at their call log but everything else works fine
  • Terrible

    By Susjankp
    Terrible! I’ve downloaded it twice , hoping the second time I would have better luck! Nope! Don’t waste your money...the set up takes way to long and is too complex! Had to give it one star...doesn’t deserve ANY
  • SCAM

    By Jbochart
    This app is a scam. DO NOT USE. It is functioning but they WILL NOT cancel the subscription when you want out. I am still being charged and I have spoken to the development who say they will stop charging my account. This app has cost me DONT LET THEM GET YOU TOO!
  • After hours of trying...

    By Sayrah27
    I still couldn’t get it to work. I made up multiple apple IDs and passwords and emails and in the end the app still wouldn’t work. I figured if it was this hard to get it to download, it would be a nightmare to use. Deleted.
  • Run!!! Lost all Apps, Can’t FaceTime

    By Time to Find New App
    I have been a HUGE supporter of Safer Kid and have told all my mom friends how happy I was with this App. But no longer. After disabling my child’s app, she has earned them back but Safer Kid is not working properly leaving my child app less. There are several times I have needed to FaceTime my daughter to ensure her safety and also to instruct her where to go but I can’t because FaceTime has been disabled. Sadly disappointed. I would have a change of heart if their customer service would respond and rectify the situation. But their lack of care is insult to injury!
  • Good idea.. too inconsistent

    By Texan ftball fan
    Application is very complicated to setup. Does not seem to work on a consistent basis. Paid extra for iCloud backup, setup phone got initial download but then nothing. Setup again three times.. nothing. Tech support has no phone support at all. Just an email address.
  • I can't access my apps

    By Qveen_Slayyyy
    I am not a happy right now! I clicked on something and now I can't access any of the apps I downloaded. How do I get my apps back? The icons aren't even showing on my phone anymore.
  • Horrible

    By Fix Dream Zoo
    This app is horrible. The installation process is not user friendly. Increasingly challenged with constant time outs. Took nearly a week before I gave up and decided to delete, however that was after the 7 day free trial was over and I had to pay $14.99 for something I can’t even use. Now I can’t even cancel my account because the subscription is not visible so now I’m praying to the app gods that this cheat of a company doesn’t steal another $14.99 from me in a month.
  • It doesn’t work.

    By nakngtinola
    Before you break your phone out of frustration, do yourself a favor by not using this app. IT DOESN’T WORK! Run away! Save your time and look for another app.
  • Low rating

    By gc0099
    I just downloaded app. But not what I expected keep getting errors not easy to install. Very confusing, I’m cancelling the try out.
  • Troubleshooting

    By 021616
    I would have been more than happy to pay the 139 dollars for this app but after trying everything to get it to work I have given up
  • Used to Work

    By Barkley2001
    This app was great before the latest update of IOS 12. Now can’t get it to connect to kids phones, can’t get ahold of customer service and there is no possible way to fix the issues until they update their technology to work with two factor identification.
  • Wasted an hour of my life horrible set up

    By iBrunos82
    This app requires you to through a lengthy process of installing profiles on your child’s phone and iCloud information. Not to mention it rehires you to turn off the two factor identification for Apple ID.
  • App that don’t work

    By MikeTattooArtist
    I Downloaded this app which when I read the description I thought this is Perfect since I have 2 Beautiful Teenage Daughters. Wrong, I cant pass the sign up part says Time Expired re-downloaded again and nothing the App literally don't work Great Concept and Idea but lack of Tech. Just the Idea
  • Charged me for a year but says my subscription has expired

    By praying mom of 6
    Need access or a refund. If I can’t read message content I want the refund please. We need an easier way to contact support within the app.
  • Started out doesn’t work right at all.

    By Rockin mommy
    Initially this app worked great and as described, however since Apple did its last upgrade it is terrible. They have now offered me the app for free for a lifetime? Great but if it can’t be fixed what’s the point? They have sent me emails suggesting directions to fix that don’t work and it takes 1-2 days for a response and there isn’t a readily available number to contact them. When I awoke this morning, it yet again was not working, not turning our son’s phone on per the schedule and then locked me out of the app. It would not accept my password and then when I clicked on send me an email to reset password an error popped up. So frustrated, wanted to continue to love this app.
  • Hard to install

    By md1232
    Could not get app to work on initial install. Troubleshooting the trouble was difficult as well. App still not working.
