Best of all it automagically reports kids’ online activity to you once installed. Getting Started: First install Qustodio on your child’s iPhone or iPad, you’ll notice that inappropriate websites have been blocked automatically. Then install Qustodio on your own smartphone to monitor their activity. Qustodio will provide you a daily report of all your child’s activity in your inbox.

  • Kept getting worse

    We installed Qustodio on an iPad and later purchased the premium version for additional benefits. None of the premium functions worked. Then Qustodio started blocking access to basic Apple apps such as Apple Music, Podcasts, and Newsfeed. I spent weeks going back and forth with Qustodio customer service and then they stopped responding. When I followed up, they cheerfully told me that I need to disable the VPN in order to access anything Apple offers— and they can’t issue a refund for apps purchased in the Apple App Store. So frustrating.

    If you are an iPhone user you will not get full functionality of this app. Until they make it work with all devices it is not worth the money.
  • Teenager’s Review :)

    I’ve seen a lot of kids/teenagers review this app and automatically give bad reviews just because they know that they have the software. The software is good for younger kids whose parents want to block simple things like social media and restrict time limits. As a teenager, my parents don’t feel the need to disable social media but they use it more to turn my phone off at night and to check which apps I’m using. The software has pretty stupid issues too. Without the VPN connected, (and it automatically disconnects constantly) the monitored device is incapable of doing pretty much anything. It blocks websites that in my opinion don’t need to be blocked. A restaurants website in my area was blocked and so was my local newspapers website. I’m not dissing the software at all but I feel it’s best to use it on younger kids. :)
  • Very expensive, unreliable & poor service!

    App blocks applications and websites that it is not supposed to. There is no phone support available. Only email support available. Further the support is useless. Unless it is a trivial issue, you are out of luck! In terms of features, there is no improvement at all. Try Kaspersky safekids. It costs only a fraction and is much more reliable.

    My child has an iPhone and it is really disappointing that I cannot track her text messages or phone calls from this app.
  • Terrible product

    I feel like this app is very controlling and is a invasion of your privacy and I personally feel like it should be taken down. It limits your child’s ability to do things on your phone.
  • Does not work

    This sounded so promising, however it does not accurately track child’s usage time. It tracked time when they were not on iPads and it didn’t track time when they were on, in turn it allows child to continue using iPad when you set a rule that should shut it down.

  • Ugh! Worst experience

    I tried this for my child’s phone and it ended up locking her phone up and it won’t unlock at all. I tried turning off time restrictions on the parent phone and just telling it not to protect that phone at all AND the child’s phone still won’t unlock! I’ve contacted Qustodio support several times and I’ve not received a solution to unlock the phone. I think I’m going to have to do a factory reset on the phone or something and she will lose everything she had on it, but it’s been locked for 4 days!!
