Safe Family: Screen Time App app reviews

  • Frustrated 2/5

    By Cjg11613
    Bought the subscription. But it will only show on my sons phone. Both on my cell n tablet it says trial over. So i click onto buy then it says i bought it already. I even clicked on check subscription option and that said no new info. So thru itunes it says i have it but your app says otherwise. Ive deleted them multiples and reinstalled them and it says same. So why did i buy this app if i cant even use it? And another thing, my child can delete it off his phone anytime. If i cant use it on my phone or tablet to check on him then whats the point of having it? If it cant get fixed then i want a refund please so i can find an app that actually works right on ALL devices. If that can be fixed ill updated my review. Thank you
  • It works but an other thing 3/5

    By OAA OSA
    It works I can block apps and other stuff but you know your child can delete the app so please don’t allow them to delete the app mcafee
  • Poor Performance & Functionality 1/5

    By Palo-Alto-User
    I have been search for a flexible parental control app and I have tested a number of the highest rated apps. Then, I came across SafeFamily. I have tested the app for over a week now and I can confidently say that it suffers from basic yet important performance issues and lacks flexibility. For example, in many separate occasions, I grant access to the children devices (remotely through my smart phone or locally using the child’s device) but the children devices remain locked.
  • Have you tried using your product? 1/5

    By 3000 nicknames taken
    Have you tried contacting yourself or is your customer service just a theory? After clicking thru layers of options to try to reach YOU virtually, I completed the online form to what I thought was “ticket #” to reference when you call. Instead, I got a “thank you....we hope you received the assistance you needed.” WTH?

    By Droste19
    Won’t show anything - can even set up restrictions or monitor. We have updated/new iPads - an are already McAffee customers. This is terrible!! Doesn’t work at all.
  • The worst 1/5

    By Reba Chula
    This is the worst app ever give out wrong location information
  • Can’t make it work 1/5

    By unhappy0009
    First time user, trying to sign in, keep saying my password is wrong, reset 3 three times, still not working
  • Not what is advertised. 2/5

    By Sockprint
    I can’t set the total amount of time my child may use or select specific apps that my child can use.
  • Hate it. 1/5

    By JACOPG13
    Doesn’t show me anything that my kids are doing. If you use iPhones you will have limited access. I can’t even cancel my subscription because it doesn’t work correctly.
  • New User 4/5

    By OneKrazyMom
    I am just starting to use this. So I’m sure I’ll be updating this review. So far I like it. It was easy to set up. I do have a suggestion: allow parents to set hour and minutes on their own. Like instead of half hour increments do by 5’s. For now I’m giving it four stars.
  • Love this app but since last update, it’s draining my battery! 3/5

    By Jg527
    We seriously love this app! I can control everything on his tablet and see what he’s doing! Since the last update, it’s draining my battery! My battery usage is showing 53% of my battery today was used by this app and I haven’t even accessed it once! Please fix this!
  • Horrible 1/5

    By penutbutter9
    My mom downloaded the app and did the free Trail and when it was over my phone is still cutting off and the app won’t let her log back in to turn the restrictions off😡🤬
  • Cannot even log in 1/5

    By Catttttt222222
    It is quite frustrating to have this app. It does not have clear instructions. I tried to register and it keeps saying my password is wrong. I reset the password and now the password is correct but they don't log me in. And no clear r reason and no error message. Waste of time :( not happy
  • Great service but... 4/5

    By Inkhart
    So I love that this app lets me control all my kid’s phones, tablets and computer. The only downside is that I have had issues with the app itself acting like I don’t have a subscription (but I do) and neither Apple or Mcaffee support knew how to solve the problem. Eventually I figured out that if I open the from a different location, it opens correctly.
  • I hate it 1/5

    By Mikdre
    It’s so annoying! My mom is like attached to it! Don’t download it! I was embarrassed at school!!!! I got bullied for it!!!! Parents if u download this app cause your kid(s) aren’t behaving, don’t, it will only make them extremely mad and they could eventually hate you, take it from a girl who’s step mom downloaded it

  • Nothing is free 1/5

    By Cindy🎶♌💞
    I don’t want this app it just block all my stuff from my phone I erased it and it’s still that same not a good app because they want to charge you $10 pier month not Worth that try to cancel it but I don’t know how it’s not letting me there no CANCEL button anywhere 👎🏽😡
  • HORRIBLE 1/5

    By WillowGurl510
    This is the worst app ever!!! There are so many more better options than this, my kids have been hacking into it and turning everything off! When I first got it, I recommended it to my neighbor, and her kids just stole her phone to turn it off! We don’t even use it to be “safe.” I just use the time out and the schedule. If the developers want a suggestion, make it so that the adults can use their phone numbers instead of their emails, because emails are a LOT easier to hack apparently. Make it quick, or I am NEVER using or recommending this app again!!!
  • No actual screen time limits 1/5

    By nicoledvm
    This only limits time of day use, not limit the minutes used. My kid will never get off his device unless he knows he has an hour limit. I don’t mind when he uses it, I don’t want him to over use it. This may be good for teens but not younger kids that need a concrete Times Up app.
  • Great Experience 5/5

    By HiddenTigerCrouchingDragon
    It’s never been so easy for me to keep my kids from misusing their iphones. SO HAPPY McAfee is offering parental control services like this now. Thank you!!!
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By mxnymanny
    Doesn’t show The right location of my child after hours of my child leave a place the app shows that was in the same place , when I want to unblock some apps on my child phone the app doesn’t work and also my child was able to uninstall the app
  • Very Easy to Use 5/5

    By Stkino
    Simply put, this app works and works well. Another quality McAfee product!
  • Disappointed Dad 1/5

    By you554433
    Horrible! Started out fine, but stopped letting me allow my son to download apps. Some apps he needed for school! So I tried to uninstall it. That didn’t work. Called tech support. They were useless. They couldn’t help me uninstall the app. So my son can’t download the apps he needs. What now?
  • Subscription 2/5

    By Campbke
    I tried to subscribe and my iTunes account says I am subscribed but the app says that I need to buy a subscription
  • Can’t get much worse 1/5

    By Lmonique
    This app started off great (and free). Then it locked up and would not respond to my commands. After spending an extensive amount of time on the phone with tech support uninstalling and reinstalling, I thought I was fine only to have the free trial period expire while I had screen time restrictions on. Now there are NO APPS on my child’s phone. This thing has caused more problems than it’s solved.
  • Son’s device still has restrictions even after I opted out. 2/5

    By Lfn in sfo
    I used the free trial period of McAfee family with my children’s devices. Once the period ended, I did not sign up for the monthly fee (still thinking about it). My daughter’s device is back to normal with no restrictions but on my son’s iPhone and IPad, restricted apps do not appear again -including the App purchase application, si je can’t download them again. It’s as if he had a permanent restriction we can’t lift. This never happened before we used McAfee. Can you please help?
  • Counter productive 1/5

    By restricted teenager
    My parents disable my apps during the week and on the bus which means that I can’t play games with my friends on the bus. Sometimes when they turn apps back on it doesn’t work or only turns on 9+ apps. In the description it states that its supposed to build trust and bring families together, its doing the exact opposite. It’s giving them the power to restrict everything, I already don’t have safari or anything social media but this lets them take it way to far. Please do something about this, I know that’s what the app is designed for but in the wrong hands it can ruin a relationship between parent and child. If you have read this far, thank you, and I hope you feel the same way or at least understand what I am going through because of this app. Thank you, -A restricted apple user
  • Concerned Dad 4/5

    By Household handyman
    Update 28Jan: Link with son’s iPod glitched. Stopped responding to my toggles. Got on www to McAffee - live chat. Helped immensely. Taught me how to fix the problem. Now I know and don’t need help again for same problem. Still no effect, however, using the master switch option introduced during recent update. Great App.. been using it for About a month. Wish that I could toggle specific apps not just groups of them (4+, 9+, and 12+) — that’s Apple policy not McAfee’s. Also, doesn’t always reflect on the kid’s app what I have set on mine. Probably about a 75% success rate. Good enough for me. Just starting to use the “screen time” function. The new change adding the “master switch” for each device and all devices didn’t work this morning.
  • Child can delete the app!! 1/5

    By ejgjrdds
    I installed the app and my son deleted it 5 mins later!!! What kind of garbage is that??? Worthless.
  • What happened? 1/5

    By Mama-rocks
    This app started out amazing and it did everything we needed. For free! It Blocked adult content, apps, purchases, set time limits.. then one day it had a bug and I had to call to try and fix it. Instead I got rerouted to someone who didn't understand me and they added my iPhone to the mix and then MY apps were getting blocked and my sons set up disappeared. I'm still trying to get it out of my phone. What a mess!
  • Issues 3/5

    By Heatherleigh412
    I loved this app to start with but now it is limited access to apps that I granted access too including his flashlight which is ridiculous. Every time I get on the app lately it says that an error occurred and to restart the app. I restart it and it does it again. Please fix this or I will be forced to find a different app
  • Ipad is no longer working 1/5

    By jgb101
    The program locked up the iPad. Customer support is not helpful. Waiting on engineers to fix the bugs. Would have been nice if they tested the program before releasing. Update - fortunately, the App Store allowed me to finally delete it.
  • App doesn't work 1/5

    By Jegwittwer
    Downloaded the app, but it doesn't work. Won't even let me sign in. Just keeps telling me they are having technical issues and to start the app over and try again.
  • It's hit or miss 1/5

    By MamaBear619
    Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I use it on my daughters old iPhone 4s and was working great at first. But sometimes when I change the screen time, the new rules never take affect, even after an hour or a day. Sometimes when it supposed to allow her to use her apps, they are disabled, they disappear and don't come back unless I remove the management file, which basically uninstalling the parental controls. I recently downloaded this app on my other daughters iPad mini and cannot seem to get the allowed screen time working. I save the new cutoff time, it tells it will take a few minutes to take effect. I check her activity, then go back to edit screen time and the new time I chose is not what I see, but the default times of 6:00am to 9:00pm, I need the cutoff time to be earlier! This is so annoying.
  • No time limit 1/5

    By Braybot
    Doesn't have the most basic feature of a parental control app.
  • Has potential 1/5

    By another momo
    This app has so much potential but just falls so short! I think having the ability to control individual apps would be better than grouping the apps together. Places doesn't work at all, nothing shows up. Lastly, a screen time limit feature would be great, but doesn't appear to exist, there are very limited settings and useful features.
  • Not good 2/5

    By capricornlover86
    It doesn't block apps that I have set for my kids to not have access. There are a lot of bugs. There should be an option to set a specific time for screen time other than a time frame. I want to like it but... it needs more work.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Sad but Awesome
    It keeps on coming up as an error
  • Great idea, bad app 2/5

    By Hollipop984
    I really wanted to like this app--it seemed great. However, all it does is freeze and tell me to restart the app due to "error code -1". I don't have time for that, sorry.
  • Can't recommend 1/5

    By Do Wah Diddy
    I was really hopeful this would help me with parental controls on my son's tablets. But it fails at some basic things. I denied them access to all web browsers and Google Tools. But they have complete access to these things. I'm pretty sure other things I tried to block or filter don't work either. The screen time doesn't work. It is basically useless. Both Tablets are identical Asus Zen Pad 3S 10.1. I made this app a device administrator and gave it accessibility access. But alas it is a fail!
  • Not a good choice for ios 1/5

    By Mrsestabrook
    Can't control nearly as much on iOS as android
  • Won't let me change settings 2/5

    By OneryLilMomma
    I have an iOS and my kid has an android. I downloaded this app because it was available on both OS's. It appears to be tracking activity properly, but it will not let me change settings for web and app access. There are sliders to turn access of and on and they don't respond when I touch them. It also won't let me turn off web access because it says that feature is not available for iOS, but I am trying to change settings for my kid's android from my phone's parent app. It should let me turn off web for her phone.
  • Great app! Excellent tool for parents 5/5

    By emsaung
    This product helped me manage the amount of time my kids spend on their devices and prevent them from accessing inappropriate content. Seeing my kids on a map is a bonus.
  • Expected better from McAfee - App not working 1/5

    By Rob Doss 1
    Main reason I downloaded this app was to control screen time on my sons ipad. The app had completely no effect on limiting him. The time I set never took effect over the course of two days. I deleted the app and downloaded it again and still didn't work. Complete waste. McAfee should not make false claims. Additionally their support knowledge base was useless in helping. Very disappointed.
  • Great App... after a month not so great 2/5

    By Nunezluis7
    1 month working well so far! Have all the options, block for time, block some apps, location... I really recommended! Update... it's blocking my children's apps without my authorization, location not working well, problems on IOS
  • I wanted this to work 1/5

    By WizardUp
    It took 2 days for the kids to figure out how to defeat this and they were back to collecting smurf berries at 6 am and missing the school bus. This app appeared to have things locked well and it worked well when I tested it, but I watched the kid defeat the security before my eyes and open up blocked apps, and operate the phone during prohibited hours, and I have no clue how the other kid managed to get her video chat app operating and not reporting its usage but this isn't working.
