Kaspersky Safe Kids allows you to protect all your kids in your family and all their devices.
How to start:
1. Install this app on your kid’s device in child mode to regulate their activities.
2. Install this app on your mobile in parent mode to see reports & customize settings.
3. Sign in to My Kaspersky – ‘Kids’ tab – at my.kaspersky.com/mykids for initial setup & protection rules management. Please use one single My Kaspersky account for all Kaspersky Safe Kids installations.
We recommend that you turn on your Global Positioning System (GPS) to increase the accuracy of your child’s location. Please note, the GPS usage increases battery power consumption.

**On their iPhones & iPads, children will see a ‘time is up’ notification – if they exceed the usage time limit you set.

Good but could be much better
The app works as advertised and is overall pretty reliable. That’s after I found that my kid was simply doing a factory reset of his phone to get rid of it. We had to have a talk about that.
I’m primarily interested in the device usage limits, which are unfortunately rather limited. It’s either total daily usage, or allowed hours, but no combination of both or anything more powerful.
I have searched and tested other parental control apps, and didn’t find any other that reaches even that level of functionality, so this does the job.
Has potential....if only it worked
Planned to use Safe Kids to protect our iMac and childrens’ iPads. Installation was simple enough and price is reasonable. We soon realized that the iMac protection wasn’t working when my child was able to access the Mac during times that were blocked. The device reports showed that he accessed the Mac during a restricted time, just did nothing about it. My other son faced another issue and couldn’t use the internet at all on the Mac due to Kaspersky certificate issues. Contacted support and their response times are abysmal and so far haven’t fixed anything. To add, the iOS versions don’t actually block device use, just warns which does nothing but send the parent a bunch of emails. There is a flaw in the app design where you can’t restrict time of day to use AND restrict amount of time used. It has to be one or the other which isn’t ideal. I ended up cancelling the subscription and uninstalling everything.
Kaspersky is great, but the iOS app is broken
I have Kaspersky on my Mac and most of the time it blocks stuff with no issues. The iOS app had trouble loading my account when I tried to set it up, so my dad had to create a new account for me and switch to that. The browser is slow, brings in ads, and often fails to load anything below the fold. Familiar swipes to go back and forward in Safari are missing, DuckDuckGo is not an allowed search engine, and any time the app pulls an update it forces a parent to put in their password to continue normal use. Worst of all, the app requires device location to be set to always on, resulting in tremendous battery loss even while sleeping to report location to parents who can already see where their child is using Find My Friends. I will be switching back to Safari and disabling all sites but a few whitelisted ones. Sure, the freedom to browse was nice, but I’d much rather be limited to a few sites in the blazing fast Safari app.
