  • It’s got its issues

    By Thisbugslife
    This app worked great at first. Then gradually over time I began getting fewer and fewer texts from my child’s phone, then the app monitoring and parent superpowers areas began to quit working regularly. I’d have to keep getting my child’s phone and resetting everything, only to discover, in the end, that she had been able to download snap chat and instagram MONTHS prior and I got zero alerts from the saferkid app nor did it show up on the “apps of concern” section of the saferkid app. I contacted the company several times about the lack of text monitoring I was able to do from the app and they could never a come up with a solid solution. Yet I was charged $15/month for monitoring services I was not getting for MONTHS!
  • App works well

    By OOGgranny
    I was hesitant about spending so much on an app but by comparison to other apps I’ve tried this one gives me the most control and ability to see her phone and online activity. My daughter is a good kid and she has a fairly good head on her shoulders but watching her gave me confirmation that she isn’t mature enough to navigate things like social media and the internet unsupervised. Ive surrendered to the fact she needs her own phone but everything else that is available can be dangerous and this app gives me the ability to keep her safe
  • Scam

    By SKS878
    This is an absolute scam. This program did not work at all, the help resource is a joke. Do not waste your money!!
  • Yesssss

    Found out who the fake friends are
  • Terrible app and too expensive

    By bcohenb
    The app doesn’t work well at all so you can’t really use all features. I’ve been using this app for 2 years, paid in full but couldn’t use all features because of constant glitch. Don’t waste your money. I found another app that’s only $6 a month and works way better!
  • What a crock!!!! Rip off

    By mad dad!!!
    I got the app..... and realized how much control “saferkids” would have over my daughters phone and every move she made,and decided 15 mins later after getting it to delete the app and move on!! So I deleted the app and canceled my subscription right then same day!!!! Never even paired my daughters phone to the app that day..... but I find out they sure as hell charged me a NON REFUNDABLE years subscription anyway!!! So now I’m out a $140.00!!! Don’t get it!!!
  • Crap Service, Customer Service and customer care

    By K2bmaryellen
    No phone number to contact directly, get run in circles with their prompts with their app for billing and technical service. When you try cancelling the subscription you get run in more circles. After cancelling and expiration of subscription, I was billed for subscription and tried cancelling, I was prompted to cancel auto payment which prompted me to renew subscription. Because I cancelled previously and subscription expired I cannot access my account. There is no technical support except email and they only work during the week. If you are lucky to get a response it turns into DYI though you are paying a premium for the subscription. Even after cancelling and subscription expired they accessed my bank account. This is a huge problem. They are not transparent. K2bmaryellen
  • Want a full refund

    By Scarry66
    Ii downloaded this last night and I was charged for a full year! Don’t want the product. Please issue a full refund. Thank you. App has been moved from both parent and child devices.
  • Horrible Customer Service

    By Selecta Blight
    Also won’t refund your money after they charge you a ridiculous yearly subscription that you can’t cancel.
  • Slow at times but worth it

    By Betina s
    At times the app is slow at showing text my daughter gets in. But overall the app is great I always know what apps are safe and who she is talking to! This is our first year to have a child with a phone this app was the only one that showed the text messages for a iPhone! It’s worth the money! I also love that it has her ask permission for the apps she gets! I have recommended to several friends!
