  • Works great for filtering content and devices

    By Twoz311
    I use this app to filter YouTube from my kids devices. Free version of the App allows you to select the device and disable on each individually.
  • Application don’t work

    By BluExclusive
    I paid for the subscription and all the options were there for a day. Now I can’t set the bed time or see history. Don’t waist your money.
  • Malware

    By Blaze7867
    It has worked good for awhile however it slows down your internet significantly and it also makes it so some of your devices cannot connected to the internet automatically you have to go in and put an IP address in manually it’s terrible and ruined our router.
  • Great app

    By Jake3685
    The app works great. It will be great if the classification of used programs are clear. If a program is not used but working at the background, it still counts as it is used. So the time limit counts as a used time. Also it will be super if it gives the kids a warning before their time expires. 15 minutes warning and 5 min warnings will be great.
  • Premium won’t work

    By Samwise Gambji
    I’ve tried multiple times to get the premium features to work. They won’t, and it seems to be related to the app because I did troubleshooting on the netgear router first. Basic features work, but they aren’t very helpful beyond what can already be done with the router settings.
  • App resets erasing all controls

    By Stoopidj
    I had spent hours setting up controls, blocking sites, setting time limits, etc. Then a couple of weeks into using the app everything reset. We have dozens of devices in our house and identifying which is which takes enough time as it is. But now I have to do it all over again. Not sure it’s worth paying for the premium version if this is a regular occurrence.
  • Limited Features

    By !36571
    The free version has very limited features. I would use the bedtime feature but don’t want to pay an annual subscription for it.
  • Outage for 2 weeks and frequent issues

    By MN-bellum
    Serious frequent failures. Issues which cause the app and the Netgear access point to be frequently rebooted. Total crap.
  • Great if it worked longer than one use

    By KickwasaKennedy
    I have had to delete and reinstall, and then contact customer service for a pin to get in, five times. I finally gave up. It’s great when it works, but locks you out every other time you access it, requiring deletion and reinstallation, then a support ticket to give you a pin to get in. Big, big unnecessary headache.
  • stupid

    By McKenna12345678910
    i get that parents didn’t have phones growing up and they hate the fact that we are on our phones all the time, but that’s how the world works now. the world revolves around technology. that’s your problem if you don’t want your kids on the wifi cuz guess what, chances are they are just going to turn their wifi off and use data. wanna know what happens then? the amount of data they use is going up but they don’t pay it so that’s not their problem. this app is so pointless and i have yelled at my mother for it because of how much i hate it. i need my phone for online school and i’ll be taking a test and my wifi will shut off. seriously?! i would not recommend this app unless you want to lose a good relationship with your children. what’s more important to you? the amount of time your children spend on technology or the relationship between you and your kids?
