  • Terrible app

    By Kaden Kempfer
    This app has way too many bugs. In my family Snapchat is basically the devil, i used to be able to have it but it was taken from me when i got in trouble. I understood this so i have kept away from it but this stupid app is saying i am doing snapchat on my activity report. and let me clarify that i have tried to download it and it didn’t even work. I was fine with this app until it started getting me in trouble for something i’m not doing.
  • Doesn't Work

    By Lauraintacoma
    The VPN blocks the internet from even working on iOS and you can literally just restart your phone and access anything blocked because the VPN doesn't start up automatically.
  • Not worth it

    By Francath
    Wanted to try the app and I’m not satisfied with the fact that I have to pay so much for services that are not working properly. During trial period I was never able to check on chat features and then after trial, only works what I don’t need.
  • Breaks families

    By hs(emmdjdus
    When my parents started using this, they didn’t trust me anymore. All they did was check Qustodio to see the truth. And most of the time I’m not lying.😡This is disgusting.
  • Unreliable

    By WaitingVeryPatiently
    The app is VERY unreliable. Had the phone all day and never went to amazon and it said Amazon was being used anywhere from under a minute to 30 minutes. The text message feature doesn’t apply for apple phones, only android. Paying extra for the “premium” services? Not even worth it. Don’t waste your money.
  • Too many problems

    By Kidwholovesbasketball
    I have used this app for my two teens for about a year. There have been so many problems I am finally ready to give up. The app will randomly stop working and the teen will have to delete and reload the app to get it to start working again. The location finder is almost never correct. It blocks sites that are perfectly safe (school websites and apps) but then allow them to sneak around and search things I don’t want them to see on the internet. The glitches have come with increasing frequency since the start of the year. As of today I give up. This app is horrible and should be pulled and fixed before offering it up to us parents. If you need an app like this I highly advise you to save yourself a lot of grief and look elsewhere.
  • Not great for the price

    By andrayjones
    Buggy and unpredictable.
  • If you like dial-up speeds

    By Abbazabba84
    I thought this would be great to prevent bad stuff from getting through and open conversations if any of the kids ended up seeing something inappropriate online. Instead it made everything slow down drastically even the adult users on the family computer that weren't being monitored. It completely blocked Facebook from even loading on monitored accounts on the computer. While it tracks websites it's every process of the browser that gets recorded so you have to scroll through a lot of irrelevant links to see what anyone was actually browsing or searching for. I just haven't felt it's worth the cost for a premium small family plan. I'll stick with the WiFi companies built in blocking of illicit sites and hope the kids come to me or just shut it down if they come across something questionable.

    I had my daughter get this app and i’ve never felt worse in my life. I broke the trust she thought she had with me by invading her privacy in such an intense way. Also, this app has access to way too much personal information. Strangers who run this app now know my daughters location, app usage, and search history on every web browser imaginable. This was also terrible for the mental health of my daughter. I knew she had depression before but after this app it got a lot worse. She felt disconnected from me because i betrayed our trust and the disconnection from any contact with her friends through social media made her feel even more lonely and left out. I’ve never seen her mental health in a worse condition and i don’t want that to happen to anyone else. Don’t get this app!
  • This app is bad

    By faeyhwgsuejeh
    This app has a lot of glitches, even when it says that my daughter still has time left her apps do not work and it says that she goes on apps on her phone even though she does not. Overall I do not think that this app is very useful
  • absolute garbage, zero stars

    By L0k1tty
    You can try to delete it, but it reappears on your phone/other device. It tracks every little thing you do, down to the key words you search. This just goes to show how much parents distrust their kids these days. You’re trying to ‘protect’ us or whatever, but in doing that you’re invading our privacy and general rights as a person. I bloody hate it.
  • LOL to the revolting rating and comments!

    By NiaSiouxhater
    If kids are mad, then that is just more suspicious! lol Parents are given to children for a reason. Trust is earned and when you hide stuff, you do not earn trust. And parents track phones for a reason and it is not always the child not trusted. It is the internet and all the evil out there trying to entice kids! Qustodio is awesome but of course kids have found out a way to unlink it! Qustodio, fix that and you will get a lot more 5 stars!
  • Life Ruining

    By sub to slothplays game on yt
    So, I’m a kid and my mom made me get this app because she didn’t trust me or whatever. So all was well when they started putting time limits for no reason, so one some days it’s 2 hours I can use my phone, or four hours, or it’s nothing. Well I couldn’t use my phone as much or do as much stuff as I want to. Well, one day, my sister got grounded for something she didn’t do. This dumb app said that she was on a “talk to strangers app” called kik, and talked to someone for 40 mins. She didn’t do it. Me and my sister decided that the app is out to get us and I would be next. So one time me and my sister where playing around and I accidentally deleted the app, and it did nothing, it still said VPN was still on, and it still had the time limits. Well, I though (with the stupid brain I was giving) it would be a good idea to deleted Device Configuration, witch completely deletes what the parents can do on your phone from their phone, so they can do timers and stuff. So just today I’m doing this, I deleted the Dive Configuration, and my mom got an alert, and I’m at my dads house, so she got mad at me over text (witch isn’t fun). Now I don't know what to do. Maybe she’ll take my phone away, but it’s not like I could do anything on it before, anyway. Edit: so my mom said if I don’t have the app on my phone I can’t have a phone so I have to have this stupid app on my phone for the rest of my life. Subscribe to Devazok on YouTube to pay respect. Edit 2: ALRIGHT SOOOOOOO, I guess it blocks random things on the internet now, too. This app is so stupid....
  • Loving it

    By Chauchau0-0-0
    This is a great way to manage my sons overuse of his iPad. I am all for less headaches...right to the point. The good thing is he got use to this management app sooner than I thought he would.
  • Amazing

    By Haynes3434
    I absolutely love this app, it's very easy to use and a great way to limit the use of apps on your child's phone and it is also a great way to take away their privileges if they are missbehaving.
  • Great app

    By Hameshhh66
    I really, really love this app! It has allowed me to set limits on my boys' screen time. It is easy to set up and I can use it for multiple children and devices. I am grateful for this free app!
  • Great

    By Haigg123
    This is amazing! I love how easy it is to use. I wish that it worked on tablets and computers (pc and Mac).Also big suggestion....a direct message feature and a group message feature would be great.
  • Awsome

    By Dasiuyyy
    I have tryed a couple apps like this before but none were as good as this one it's awsome that it removes all the apps when it's not supposed to be used! I'm Very happy with it my son not so much!!
  • Love it!

    By Reporteris
    My daughter needs her phone for her alarm clock but I found that she was staying up late instagramming or face booking. I downloaded this app and now it all goes away during the times I scheduled.
  • Great app. Every parent should have it.

    By Berjouhi Gertrud789
    Very pleased with how intuitive the app is. Helps us manage the obsession all 3 of our kids have with their devices. Wish you offered versions for chrome books too!!
  • Great app for parents!

    By Ottaviano Martina 444
    This app has been excellent so far. It his intuitive options for parents to easily schedule iPad time and make exceptions to allow or prohibit use ver quickly. Simple and functional.
  • Great App! Finally. A must have for parents

    By virtualnick_name\\\
    We have been looking for an app like this for a long time. Very happy with it. Finally have some control of snap chat without banning it. A must have for parents
  • Absolutely LOVE IT

    By Virgoladyy789
    Just what I needed for my kids iPad & iPhone no more stress and no more yelling at them to put them down.
  • My view

    By faker@@@@
    I think it's an excellent app. About time an app like this surfaced so parents could have some control. Amir Homayoun
  • Works Great

    By tintin and a dog1q1q
    Using this app, since last couple of weeks. It works great and can provide time off to the kids on their gadgets.
  • Awesome

    By huayue301243
    I'm a teenager and I actually got this app to help me when I'm studying bc I always get side tracked by my phone haha
  • Great app!

    By p1eas3t3llm3y34
    Great app for helping kids minimize distractions in their lives. Would love if I had for the MacBook Airs as well.
  • WOW!!!

    By Yonghwa_mylove
    This app is down right awesome!!! It works just as it promises. Makes parents happy and kids mad all in one little app.
  • Just does what I was expected

    By Kid14126qw
    I have two kids having two iPads and this app really helps me to organize their time. Great app.
  • Desperate mother

    By N1c3789
    Great well times app for today's kids. Add location and tell us where the kids are.. You got yourself a winner.
  • Love it!

    By La/la/landd
    This app has been a great way to monitor my daughter's screen time. Very easy to setup and use. Keep up the great work!
  • Love

    By Bombanggggg
    This app is great for parents! Also great for kids (even though they don't realize it, LOL) works great and helps me to keep a lid on the excessive screen time that kids gravitate towards. Thank You!
  • Qustodio Parental Control

    By bangtanxxk
    I love this app because my kids are always on their phone. When I block their phone I get a little bit of "Family Time."
  • Awesome!!!!!

    By Dee Hammer
    This app is perfect! Our son who’s in the second grade doesn’t follow our phone rules when he’s in school and has had his phone taken away numerous times, with this app, we can not only disable the phone during school hours but we can track him when he is on his way home from school or a friends house. As for the web content monitoring, we can see what he’s been watching on you tube and the internet.
  • Doesn’t work and terrible customer service

    By Angall47
    My son’s both have Android devices. One son I blocked from all apps (due to grades), but still want him to be able to call or text. If I spot check his phone I can still get in the apps I have blocked. My other son continues to deactivate it. It never stays working. Customer service says it is only for the Huawii this problem exists. Obviously not as other son’s google has pixel has problems to as indicated above. I’ve repeatedly asked about problems and been in touch and problems are never resolved! I love everything on should be able to do, just doesn’t work. Been trying for almost 1 year.
  • Cool

    By Fantre001
    I like this app..i use the paid version and it's worth every penny. When my kids don't listen to me or haven't done their chores I just disable their phones from my app. No more asking them to do something several times
  • Filtering is so helpful

    By Degipp8u878
    I really like this app. It far surpasses the others I've tried. I have it set up on tablets and phones for 3 of my kids. It's definitely worth the $39.99 yearly subscription
  • Work nicely

    By taenopya2367
    If it wasn't for this app I would of never found out what my daughter is going through, and now we r on the road to recovery. Thank u do much!
  • Extremely good

    By Lazymeda7y767
    Fabulous! The first few days my kids argued and fussed, but they quickly got used to Screen Time and began setting 5-Minute Warning alarms on their devices. No more "just a minute" - now the kids ask "is there a task I can do?" Love this!
  • Like the service

    By Freakeroo12o098
    Quite good. Yes we do limit our kids screen time in other ways of course, but this great app gives us an additional safety net. Desperately needs additional features and workflow fixes
  • Good

    By Hosistar<^&&>
    The app is good and useful especially for kids. However, it keeps on having Ipad Issue on my niece's new ipad and I always need to restart the app and the device. It gets too annoying sometimes
  • A thumb up

    By Getabademen\\\
    Love this app, I M not the bad guy, telling my kids over and over to get off. I also see them saving up their time for later. Even my 2 year old understands that she used up her time.
  • Love love

    By Fangallysi,.[]
    Multipronged approach to controlling screentime, can pause if having aberrant behaviors, monitor total screen time usage with daily reports, block out times for bedtimes, limitation of daily total time on screens, and rewarding child for completing tasks or general well behaviors. AMAZING
  • Best app ever

    By EventsProphecy[]
    My daughter would be a phone zombie if not for this incredible app. There were constant arguments trying to implement screen time without the app. Thank u so much
  • Real control

    By Lilaznphillaq121
    This app worked great up until now. I paid for a year subscription maybe a month ago. But now I can't login. It says it doesn't have an account with my email even though earlier I received an email from screen time saying my kid ran out of time.
  • Super safe

    By PinkPrecise7766w
    This is a great app. Simple to use and there are no more negotiating sessions at bedtime. My son does have some choice words to describe his feelings toward the app, but that's just more proof that it works.
  • Amazing

    By Lenymaria112211
    Don't listen to the bad reviews they're most probably from angry kids. This app is awesome it does exactly what it says on the tin and works perfectly on our IOS devices.
  • Great platform

    By Piperint1907
    Works great on my son's android device. It's a absolute disgrace on my daughter's iOS device with constant issues where by I have simply removed it from the device.
  • So good

    By Aleister_Fosterery7676
    Great app. Used it a few years ago then went to something else but have come back. We mainly use this for setting time limits and times when our daughters devices can and can't be used. For this it's great.
