  • Dramatically reduced my stress level

    This app has been great! It is easy to use and has dramatically reduced the arguments over the electronics in my house, making my home life much happier. Instead of me saying “you have 30 minutes or 1 hour” to play on whatever device, then yelling and fighting ensuing when time is up, I can simply set a time limit in the Kidslox app and when it’s done it’s done. I don’t have to do or say anything else. Yay! It has also made it so that there is no sneaking the device when my child is not supposed to be on it. Also Yay! I like the ability to limit accessibility of certain things, though honestly I don’t use that function as much as limiting and restricting time. Finally I like that the full app is reasonably priced after the trial period.
  • Great app with one serious flaw

    I’ve used Kidslox as a paid service for nearly a year now and wanted to share my experience and why I’ve chosen to stop using it. The sole reason is that the Kidslox app blocks location tracking on my kid’s phones when they are on cell network only. It works fine when they are on WiFi. I’ve contacted the company several times and reported these issues yet no resolution has been made. I’ve used Kidslox on 4 different devices since both my kids upgraded phones mid year. They had iPhone 6s, 8s and more recently Xr. We’ve tried it in multiple locations. Sometimes it works but most times it only show “offline” or “no location available” when both kids are in “child mode” on their devices. Anyways I was hoping Kidslox could have fixed it. In fact they even reported they couldn’t recreate this bug? My wife (iPhone 8plus) couldn’t track them either. So I uninstalled the app on all family devices and straight away I was able to see location of my kids again whenever they’re away using the iOS native ‘find my phone” or “find my friends” apps. Everything else with Kidslox worked fine but the location glitch is our reason for cancelling this service as it is a serious flaw for parents who want to keep track of kids outside the house. Hope this feedback helps. I’d sign up again if this bug is actually fixed this time. Thank you

    I cannot find where to set up as shown in the images. Not straightforward.

    I started using this app for my son that was used in the phone all night and tired for school the next day and now I have put a schedule and he has no choice but to go to bed. Worth trying for the first month and then when you see how it works and then is worth getting the last time packet.
  • No internet connection

    Internet connection is spotty at best with their VPN. Every app on all three of the devices were constantly “trying to connect”. I even tried it on my phone and had the same results. I tried on wifi and over cellular network with the same results. I use ProtonVPN on my personal phone and never had the same issues as with this app. As soon as I deleted their devices from the app their connection was restored. It would be a great app with being able to control and monitor the devices, but it makes the devices practically unusable.
  • Lots of issues

    The app worked well at first. Then, when I began to add time past the schedule I ran into issues. The app now doesn’t seem to follow the set start and end schedules. It would be scheduled to be on, but my children would be asking me to turn it on. This was before the timer had said that they had used any of their alloyed time. Then, I found that my son could use his iPhone 7 even though I had it “turned off”. Finally, my son taught my daughter how to erase the app from her iPad. Now, I will have to reinstall although, if they can come back and erase it, that would be a moot action.
  • Several issues

    Downloaded this app to 3 devices: 2 kid’s phones and mine to monitor. At first it worked ok but in a few days, it stopped working properly- The area the permission was given from my phone was locked in theirs. Some days the set use time went beyond the limit, other days it has already reached the limit as soon as the phone was turned on. This is rather frustrating. I’m in search of a better functioning app.
  • Good, could be better

    App does what it says, apart from the limitations of IOS. If you want your icons to stay organized, be aware; they may be reshuffled. I had technical issues but support team was very reactive and solved the issue in couple days. Only thing I did not like is I cannot set the usage to 0 minutes, it automatically becomes No Limit. So you must give kids at least 5 minutes of play time. This is also not for teens as they can easily uninstall it from Profile Manager.
  • Good but not great

    This app is really good for blocking websites and apps that your kids should not be accessing. But it does nothing for call tracking text messaging or GPS location those three items would be the icing on the cake!
  • Overall: useful but need work
