This app does everything that we need it to for our children. Still learning and figuring things out. Will give another update in
a few months. Hopefully the security is top notch. But for now we’re able to control majority of what should be handled by an
adult. Thanks Google for the extra layer of

Kid tears are music to my ears

Heads up to all the kids leaving 1-star reviews and complaining about how this app “ruins their fun” and doesn’t let them
play the games or have the unlimited freedom they think they deserve.

Your complaints are praise for this app and only serve to make it look GREAT to concerned parents.

It’s great because kids can’t spend all day on the

Having a bedtime setting for kids makes it so much less of a hassle to get them to bed. I also love the fact they can’t buy or
download apps that are not suitable for kids.

It has some flaws as kids are figuring ways around some things, but hopefully google will fix them.

Best app on Google, never knew something like this existed and I was worrying myself about what my kids do in the internet. This
app have set alot stuffs am worried about, limited the time my kids spend on screen and helped me to be in charge as a parent.

Can be better

I do like that I can limit my granddaughters time on her cell and track her whereabouts but she was home right beside me and it em
said she was elsewhere. What’s up with that @FamilyLink?

Needs selective app blocking for settings

Had to download a secondary app to block the settings app and other selected apps that Family link wouldn’t manage. Other than
that, the app approval and management is fairly easy.

Wonderful, except….

It’s a wonderful app that allows me to see what my son is up to on the laptop. However I have the app on my phone and it will
suddenly stop showing the apps downloaded and only shows what’s been blocked. I have deleted the app but will try restarting it
to see.

Needs a way to contact device directly

Good way to keep tabs on child using device, but should have had a way to call or message tablet directly for emergency purposes
or otherwise

Will not allow date and time to be set

For some reason Family Link is not allowing the date and time to be set on the device causing some issues with certain apps. For
the life of me I can’t find where to allow this function and am not sure why it’s blocked in the first place.

Make available to use for kids with iPhone

Great app but only downfall is that if your kid has an iPhone, it doesn’t work. I got my daughter switched from Android to
iPhone and now we can’t use the app.

I couldn’t find family link for children and teens on app store. Why do you have only family link for parents?

limited availability

i love this monitor app, even though i'm a child. it's one of the best ones my mom has used but i transferred to an iphone
recently and the child app isn't available for iphone which i don't see why not, i hope it gets released on apple soon.
