    Probably the only app that can do what it says. Delivers information to me as a parent that is so important these days... with all the potentially bad things kids can see, be drawn into and everything else - great app. Highly recommended.

    Its awful to do this to your children, please, don't! It establishes trust issues. Yeah, I know, you just want to make sure your kid is not viewing any inappropriate content or getting into bad situations. But, seriously, it just makes your kid better at hiding things, less likely to share feelings and experiences, and making them resent you. I know this all too well. Instead of wasting your time and money on this stupid app, maybe work on building up a relationship with your child, if you do, they'll easily express their feelings and turn to you in stressful situations or situations where theyre in over their head. If instead you invade their privacy, look at everything they do, under the guise of 'Im just concerned sweetie!!', itll only do harm. I beg of you, don't make your kids stop trusting you all because you wanted to make sure they werent looking at boobs or something. Work on your relationship, never judge them when they tell you things, because it takes a lot to be able to tell parents anything. Say thank you when they do tell you things. Telling you things isnt something they should be forced to do, its not required of them as children. If you maintain a good relationship, dont make them tell you things they dont want to, let them work through what they must, and dont put them down when they tell you a secret of their's that you dont like, I PROMISE it'll be 10x better, and if theyre in a truely bad situation and cant handle themselves, theyll turn to you. Edit- (Post developer reply) Im not uninformed, Ive just been on the recieving end of these things instead. I am aware of dangerous situations children get into, and possibilities of sexual harassment. What you say is "Good parenting" is completely subjective. What the majority may consider good parenting however, is probably more focused on the parent-child relationship. I can only suggest things, and I suggest making sure your child can recognize harassment or inappropriate behaviour, not just with one talk, but always randomly checking, at least semi-regularly. I know its nerve-wracking, I know its scary, to think of your kids in bad situations, but reading their personal chats with friends and looking at everything they dont exactly want to divulge with you yet isnt going to do much good. They need to have their personal lives, I know, I know, "What possible 'personal life' does an 8 year old have? It doesnt matter." It matters to them, their personal life may be uncomplicated and only concern things like hating the type of toilet paper at school, but they should have the right to develop those feelings on their own, to be able to hold opinions safe from your input. Like I said, teaching your kid to recognize harassment on their own and letting them know they can come to you in those situations, its much more important than monitoring anything. I can only speak for myself, for people's who's storys I've read, and some friends, that all have had parents that pryed into their personal life from a young age. And this, what I've said, if heavily agreed upon. What I've said isnt just 1 person's biased and unchecked opinion. 3 Stars because this is for the parents, not for the company. Gotta supply whats demanded, I get it.

    4 kids, all on iPhones. Wanted the app specifically for the teenager (text messages) but completely underestimated how much I needed it for the 3 younger kids. It found so many questionable apps on the younger kids' devices! I love the app review breakdown - super easy to determine what needs to be removed and why.
  • Huge relief

    Two kids (12 and 14) with iPhones. Finally have some peace of mind. Had one small hiccup during the setup but customer support was great about helping out. Well worth the price.
  • No help

    Not doing what is advertised and no responses from tech support. It looked great and when first installed it seem great but the only time it worked right was within the first 10 minutes of install. Nothing since then.
  • A great tool

  • Makes us more thoughtful parents

    My wife and I worry about what our kids are being exposed to through their devices. Of course we have set all the device specific and platform based parent controls but SaferKid provides us the guidance to be more thoughtful about which games and apps our kids are using. The reviews are great. We had looked at a popular game on my son's iPad and figured it was ok because there was not obvious texting. Then I received the Saferkid alert which indicates that their is texting in the game. Sure enough the texting was hidden in a feature. Thank you Saferkid!
  • Amazing!

    This app is great! Helps me keep an eye on my kid without being overbearing. I had no idea how dangerous some apps can be before signing up for SaferKid.
