  • Great app if it worked

    By KaeKaeTee
    Unfortunately, I’ve had multiple technical issues, and have followed all advice given by support. Most recently, they did not respond to me. Do not pay for the full year because they will not respond to you or issue a refund if the app doesn’t work at all.
  • Frustrating

    By shonda hill
    I’m frustrated, I find that the app only works part of the time and glitches all devices it’s added to. I tried to contact support and had no response. Not recommending to friends unfortunately.
  • Helpful

    I love this app! It's so helpful with having four boys. I do wish it didn't cost so much.
  • Stopped working for us

    By Fit Mama 2000
    Worked great for over a year. Suddenly neither of my daughters’ devices would stay connected to WiFi. We spent hours over a couple days trying to troubleshoot until it occurred to me it might be UnGlue. Once the app was deleted from their device and the management profile removed, the devices worked normally again. Bummer, because it was great until that happened.
  • This App does NOT work

    By DavidD2018
    I have two children where we installed the app on iphones and ipads. If the device is turned off or goes into airplane mode, the VPN shuts off....and doesn’t turn back on. It doesn’t accurately keep track of time used and the reporting of where the child has visited is flawed. I asked for refund as was simply told how to cancel auto renew. I sent another email asking who to contact to discuss dysfunctional app and have been ignored.
  • No customer service response

    By TooOldForThis$h!t
    I managed to forget my password, and there’s now way to reset it. I tried contacting the company with no response. Email only, no phone number provided. I spent money for a full year subscription, and I was only able to use it for a couple months. Not happy. That’s a lot of wasted money.
  • suggestions

    By natalielizabeth_
    -Need to be able to customize what is and isn’t considered entertainment, including specific websites -if adult content is allowed, the website(s) should not show up on the parent’s phone as usage (so long as the parent agrees with this) or else it’s just embarrassing. -don’t count background play !!!! I use an app to play music from YouTube in the background and it counts as entertainment time.
  • Good for younger kids

    By Peyecgirl
    My 15 year old daughter does her chores no problem with this app. It’s great for that, however, the app doesn’t allow you to have a schedule or limit only specific apps. You can’t see any personal activity, just how much time they use on certain apps. Not worth the money imo.
  • Deleted the app after two days

    By RockyMtnSW
    I like the concept but the execution is very poor. Too easy for kids to work around it and the tech support is nonexistent. I’ve emailed them 3 times and heard nothing. I wanted to try it for the full free trial period as I was sincerely interested in getting a subscription, but I got fed up after a few days. Many flaws. Too many flaws.
  • Excellent concept; poor execution; zero support

    By p7FbQmtxq2
    Worked fine for the first few days. Now nothing. No real troubleshooting or support.
