  • Doesn’t work

    By Fiddlerwoman
    Says it’s not active but there is no way to make it active
  • Privacy is not a luxury.

    By common_knowledge
    Privacy is not a luxury no matter what roof they are under. It is a basic human right. For children as well as adults. This app is walking a thin line between what is legal and what is not. American law has strict privacy laws. I could see why a parent would use this to keep their child(s) safe. But the child(s) doesn’t have a voice. Children have been stripped of their basic human rights since the beginning of time. The children of 2020+ are capable, intellectual, and engaged in first world problems. They are not incompetent. They are not vulnerable. They do not need to be monitored. The basic human rights of children are not there to be taken from them. They are competent and at least deserve privacy.

    When I downloaded this app I was hesitant because of the rating but it ended up causing weeks of frustration. This app seriously messed up my wifi and I am no longer able to connect to wifi in my own home. I SERIOUSLY advise you do not make the same mistake I did and download this. My wifi is STILL awful and much more.
  • dont download

    By CreeperGirl0306
    first off, im 17 and ive never done anything wrong so i shouldnt need this. BUT it doesnt work anyways. after 1 month my mom got frustrated and fed up with this stupid app and cancelled the subscription. what a waste of $8 a month. download life360 or something free. better yet, maybe dont invade your teenagers personal life and instead trust them, and theyll trust you back. coming from experience, i trust and want to be around my mom more when shes not over my shoulder and being a helicopter parent. just a thought.
  • Nope.

    By lynzi s
    This app actually destroyed my phone. As soon as I downloaded it for my mom to track my siblings and I on a trip, “VPN” appeared at the top of my screen. My phone started acting weird and I decided to delete the app and see. In the end, the “VPN” thing wouldn’t go away, and it actually started preventing me from accessing literally anything. No iMessages, social media apps, or WhatsApp. I ended up having to get a new phone because the people at the AT&T location I went to had no idea what was wrong.
  • Great app

    By smartkidxD
    This is a truly great piece of art that can be easily deleted off of ones cellular device I recommend getting this app for a nice joke or prank on one of your kids because they will probably end up laughing at it and deleting the app entirely. The functions of this app are not entirely functional such as the location tracker sometimes this feature is so off that you can end up states away from your child or whom ever it is that your paired with. Keep in mind that this app might screw with your WiFi so you might not want to connect to your WiFi wile using this app. If there are any kids reading this trying to stay up simply hold down on the app and delete the app. What this will do is it will make your parents or whoever is paired with you extremely mad at you. Don’t worry though now that the app isn’t on your phone you can do whatever you want. Now to the parents that use this app. One easy fix to every problem one could have with this app simply find another app. This might seem hard but it will be worth it.
  • This app grinds my gears

    It is super bad and really bursts your bubble. If you want an app that will make you lose your marbles this app is for you.
  • Horrible

    By Tgreen01
    Unable to pair sons phone. ATT store had no knowledge about app. Provided tech support number and they were also unable to resolve. Worthless.
  • Don’t download.

    By sdjbyron
    So when I downloaded this app, it made me go to safari and download an application and now every time I use the WiFi at home, it won’t work so now I heavily rely on data. I think this app is plotting to get us to use our data to pay more
  • Won’t pair. Horrible

    By Rayn1028$
    I agree with 4/23 review. Horrible. Won’t pair at all
