    So I’m actually now a parent typing here right now but I have a problem. Every time my mom goes from child mode to lockdown mode and then turns lockdown mode off, all my apps scramble everywhere and they’re not in the folders that I put them in. If there is something we can do about it, or we’re doing something wrong, please let me know because I hate that my apps scramble. If there’s nothing we’re doing wrong etc. Then please fix that issue because I’m sure no teen or child likes it. Thanks

    this app deleted all of my apps and it put everything on lockdown even when I deleted it! I was just watching YouTube and it takes me out and everything is gone. The only app I seen was this one and it wouldn’t let me delete it. I started freaking out and told my sister about it. She found out on the app it went on lockdown even when I deleted it. She eventually got everything back to normal but don’t download because the same thing might happen to you

    By momma bear 1515
    I wish there was away to monitor and be alerted on the parental phone when new text messages and phone calls and the pictures are taken. And I wish it had a tracking feature.I just got the subscription but I don’t think I will keep it.. Safer kids does more of what I’m looking for. But this is ok for the basics,but I can also do the same thing thru google account settings for free. So I just don’t see the point. Nice effort but very behind on what parents really need 2019. I also don’t like the fact there’s a telephone number to call for any problems but you can’t speak to anyone they have to call you back in 24 hrs!! Really doesn’t seem legit to me .

    I don’t like the fact that my son can see the app in his phone. He can easily figure out to delete it. I changed my mind about this app and tried to delete it but locked out of the account!!!!! I do not want this app anymore. Please delete my account!!!!

    Don’t get this app! It dosent just “lock” your phone, it REMOVES all your apps, and when your time starts over they are all rearranged! Terrible app
  • Best parental control app I’ve found

    By M. Spates
    After trying my cellular service provider’s parental control app, and finding that I could delete the companion app from my child’s phone, I went looking for another option. Let me tell you, there is a reason this is so well rated! When lockdown mode is engaged, the gaming and social apps disappear from my child’s phone. The icons are gone and there is no way to access them at all. Kidslox leaves the calling and texting features available for use, which I appreciate, so that she can contact me in the event of an emergency. I found the parent user interface to be thorough, yet intuitive. It is easy to navigate and itemizes the features and apps that will be locked out during each type of mode. Knowing that even when child mode is engaged, she will still be protected with safe search browsing and content filtering, as well as the requirement to request permission before downloading apps, has actually increased our communication about what is appropriate for her. We can talk about why I declined a particular app so she knows what features to look for before she asks to download. Overall, I’m very impressed. As a person who has almost never downloaded a paid app, I can tell you that my standards are high. I just signed up for the lifetime premium service and will be downloading the companion app on all of the devices in my home, as well as recommending this to my friends.
  • Horrible app SCARY

    By Jade Cering
    My phone would be on lockdown mode at random times 4 a clock 9am and It will not let me change it to child mode and ever since I got this app my battery life has been going down a lot and MY APPS ARE ALWAYS MOVED AROUND WHEN IT COMES OUT OF LOCKDOWN MODE. The worst thing about this app is it restricts Safari pages that are innocent pages that have like my Schedule for dance!
  • TERRIBLE DELETES APPS

    By do not GET IT IS TERRIBLE
    I got this app after reading all the reviews and thinking it would work perfectly fine. Once you get it makes you add configurations which DELETES ALL YOUR APPS. As I didn’t know this I added configurations and it DELETED MY APPS. After spending over an hours I removed configurations completely and then it finally worked. I STRONGLY SUGGEST IT IS FAKE
  • Never worked

    By mhmckee
    It didn’t do anything, until I deleted it. It comes back every two days or so and messes up all my apps and locks me out form things that I don’t want to been locked out from. This is the worst purchase ever
  • Too good to be true.

    By Eapz
    One of the better rated apps that offered what few do: a lifetime subscription instead of paying every month or year or week for a lifetime. Very easy to understand, navigate and puts parents in control of the vast majority of device app functions. One major problem: even after “installing” the placeholder icon, all the controlled apps disappeared and never came back while the remaining icons *as warned if placeholder was not used* rearranged themselves. I was super excited with the possibility of such fantastic control and easy to use interface with just one lifetime purchase. But alas, I can’t have my kids apps completely disappear ever time the phone enters restricted mode. I hope this issue is resolved at some point and I may try again in the future. But, for now, I need to find a different app that doesn’t jack up my kids apps just so I can’t control their usage. I’m glad everyone else got it to work without experiencing the issue I did. I’m not as fortunate.

    I’ve been looking for an app that provides the ability to safely limit specific app content for a long time. This one does it very well with the added ability to add time restrictions and schedules. The additional benefit of being able to control specific access through either my phone or the restricted device is terrific. The paid subscription is well worth it!
  • Had to wipe iPad

    1
    By Pancakes Mommy
    This app seems useless and I attribute it for making my iPad unusable. First, it couldn’t control 75% of the apps I wanted to limit and also it FORCES you to start the download of another app. Either because of this limit app or the failed download of the second app, my App Store and safari vanished. And no it wasn’t because of settings, I tried EVERYTHING. So I had to wipe my iPad.
  • Bad, worse after removed.

    This app does put a timer on apps. It also moves all kinds of apps to the main screen. After removing the app I am still fighting to get control of the iPad.
  • One of the worst apps I ever downloaded

    1
    By angry_McSaLly
    Not to be dramatic but this is probably one of the worst apps I ever downloaded. I installed it so that I could try to limit my usage on the internet and help me focus on school work(yes I know this is for kids but I procrastinate a lot and don’t stay focused) I downloaded it and it deleted all my apps and I was so confused at first and it took me a long time to get it back this happened continuously for three days!!! I had no choice but to delete the app shocked again that after a day when I went back to my phone I see that I can’t find any of my apps and the same app is back it had control of my phone and deleted it!!! I was so surprised that somehow it installed itself again..after I deleted it!!!! If I could block this app I would. Just to let you know before you buy the app. Statistics don’t say as much and are rigged most of the time at first seeing the 4.5 rating drew my attention towards it but after having many disappointments I checked the reviews and they had similar problems.
  • Terrible app, helpful tech support

    By jobar711
    I gave this two starts only because tech support is helpful and responsive. So many parts of this app didn’t work. I had to contact tech support three times in the first week. My daughter’s App Store is somehow deleted. I’ve canceled my subscription, so I can’t fix this issue.
  • WORST APP EVER

    1
    By Ms.PJoubert
    Wish I could give it ZERO stars. The app kept disabling applications and deleting my son’s profile. I had to jump thru so many hoops just to remove it, even in parent mode. Not user friendly, and clearly has control glitches. I had high hopes for this app. Greatly disappointed.
  • I like it but it’s getting on my nerves!

    By Vonne31
    It seemed to be working fine then 6 months later the schedules aren’t acting right. If I put it on lockdown, it somehow will take it off lockdown. Or when I make a schedule, and have 5 minutes to go before it locks down it won’t. So frustrating! I will think it’s on lockdown and go the whole day with it on a different mode!!!

  • This app is horrible

    By agaribay0520
    I got this app on my phone around October or September and ever since then it has been impossible to get off my phone. The first problem was that my mom couldn’t control when the restrictions went on and off and that it blocked my music apps like pandora and Spotify. I STILL can’t use them even though my mom has repeatedly tried deleting the app all together or trying to figure out why it restricts those apps when she never told the app to do so. In November she tried deleting the entire app but when she tried it never went off. It’s been months since she tried deleting it so I can listen to music but it’s still on here.

    Honestly, like every reviewer I believe that this app was great, but then I decided to delete it because I started to get annoyed with my child bugging me to take it out of child mode. After that her iPad still goes through lockdown mode, even after uninstalling the app. Do not download
  • The app broke my daughter's phone

    By Cherrie Richardson
    The app looked like an amazing app at first, but then my daughter woke up one morning and all of her apps were gone. The apps were unable to revive and the kids lock app would not delete no matter how much I tried. The brand new iPhone XS Max developed a virus and a new phone had to be bought. Please take this review into consideration before downloading the app. This app destroyed my daughter's phone and I do not want the same to happen to yours.

    After arguing with my kids about screens and their screen time, I am glad to have purchased this. It is allowing me to easily turn on and off certain features, as well as accurately monitor their screen time. Customer service has been quick and helpful too. My one request would be for the ability to control specific apps on iPhones.
  • Don’t download

    By savannah811!
    I downloaded this app hoping it would help lower the screen time for everyone in my home but it was too confusing for the adults to get and the younger ones in my family figured out a work around within a day or so also this is a very annoying app to set up in general so I deleted it. A couple of days later I get an email saying that my free trial is over and the app is switching itself over to a plan that I did not authorize payment on. I would not recommend it and i am NOT happy that it changed its plan on its own.
  • Don’t download this app!!

    By Bethey222222
    I deleted this app off of my phone because I did not need it anymore. I’m playing a game and then all of the sudden my phone locks. I was confused because I uninstalled the app off of my phone but some how it came back and put my phone under “lock down”. When I clicked the app (that was supposed to be uninstalled) I put it back to parent mode and I looked to uninstall it (again) but it wasn’t on my home screen. Before I turned it back to parent mode I looked in my setting for the app but it was not there. !!!!!DO NOT DOWN LOAD THIS APP IT IS A WHOLE BUG!!!!!!! Please get this app off of my phone. I went to key board settings and everything it was not there.

    By Maria G.123454321!!!
    On my child’s phone it worked for a couple days until I realized that it corrupted the YouTube app, deleted the App Store and she could not use Safari. So I had to uninstall the app to get the phone working again. Also had to spend an hour and a half with Apple support trying to fix the phone and get the App Store back. This app had so much promise but I was disappointed that it caused so much damage to my daughters phone.
