At first this app seemed to work well for limiting my teens WiFi/data but now a few months later I notice sometimes when she should be blocked from being online her phone still works... Also I set time limits for school day, school nights and weekend nights. I have found several times when checking the Smart Family app that the time limits I set up were wiped out and I need to reset them. Frustrating and unreliable...
The gps does not work correctly. I had my sons phone in my hand and it said the phone was 3miles away at someone else’s house. It will have him somewhere and then 1min later he’s 5 miles away at another house and then 2min later he back at the exact address he was before and I know for a fact that he never left Because I spoke with the parents. It’s frustrating when the big thing that is advertised doesn’t work!
This app is perfect for the parents that don’t want the kids showing up at their general or when they’re on their deathbed
I want my daughter to just get calls and texts from trusted numbers but she keep getting and texting to other numbers that are not in trusted contacts.
Horrible location accuracy
Been using this app for over a year then all of a sudden it guzzled 5.44 GB in a week.
As soon as I installed the app it blocked my daughter from doing anything with no restrictions set.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Constantly getting notifications that she arrived at and left school during the day when she is actually only changing classes. Location not always accurate. If she drives by a saved location, I’ll get a notification that she arrived and then left there even though she never stopped there. I like that I can restrict web access times and content but I’m not sure it’s worth the $10 a month.
We have had major problems with the location service, my kids will be sitting in the house in front of me and I will receive notices saying one of them has left the house and seconds later they have returned and then to top it off the next one will say they have just left a friend house. It is so crazy and frustrating, my husband and I have decided to look for another app to try that will better and more accurate, it also has to do with keeping our family safe when we are not together, why should we pay for a service that is not doing the job it’s supposed to do.
