Kids can hack it

We have utilized Q for a few years now on both of our teens (13 & 15 years) iso phones. My husband & I both have the parent end of the app on our phones, it’s nice for both of us to be able to oversee their activity & set controls as needed.
Overall we have been very satisfied with the ability to monitor, steer & hold our kids accountable, which would be near impossible to do otherwise. Thank You Q

I did give 4/5 stars because.....
our oldest has figured out how to go in & shut off the daily time allotment we set for her, which is 4 hours. This takes place on the parents end of the app. I even frequently update my password, we are unsure how she is doing this. She has also gone in & shut off location services and few times when she’s being sneaky. So it is not entirely child proof from their end of things. Overall though it is a fantastic app when it comes to keeping a finger on your child’s pulse.

If you are a parent please listen to me..

I am a 15 year old girl and I do consider my parents to be strict but I do love them. I get that you want to protect your kid and have control over them but I promise this is not the way. Ever since I downloaded the app I always fight with my parents and try to make them understand that I am responsible enough to leave my phone and can handle myself, I just feel preassured all the time because I always have to have an excuse to why I cant answer my friends and why my wifi doesn’t work but I’m so tired of it, I have lost my mind and I love my dad so much but I hate it that I have no privacy anymore and I have told him I hate him and have had the worst arguments over this. All I asked him was to trust me or try and make it work for a week without the app so he could see that I wouldn’t spend that much time on the phone. I have cried so much ever since that app got into the way of our relationship and yes, I do understand but instead of taking your child’s privacy away try talking to them and making sure that they understand that they shouldn’t spend too much time on the phone and making sure they know you love them but I promise this is not the way all it will do is cause fights and since my dad doesn’t want to hear me maybe some parent will and might understand their child for once.

Hello Sammy. We know it’s frustrating having your internet use monitored, but your parents have chosen Qustodio because they want the best for you. We ask families to work together & decide on healthy limits, so why not try having a chat with your parents? Maybe you can find a solution you’re all happy with ☺ Good luck!

Not worth it

I don’t feel like this has been worth the large sum of money I spent. I liked it as a free tool for one teen but having paid as much as I did you would think it would be more reliable and have more convenience. You can’t specify different time limits for different apps. It was useless for the first 5 months while my kids were in school on their devices because It was all or nothing. I’m regularly having to give my kids extra time because Qustodio says they used all their time but they swear they haven’t used any. I look at their activity to show them and Qustodio shows no activity for the day, as does Screentime, so then I have to just give them more time in all fairness. How does it say they used up all their time but on nothing?! I find it inconvenient when I’d like to encourage them to spend time on educational apps by allowing separate time on that. I find it a huge hassle that if there’s a random odd day where I want to allow them online after our usual rule I have to change the rule completely then set it again instead a simple button to extend their time.

It shows me what their search activity is and blocks certain websites I wouldn’t want them on which is good but is that worth 100 something dollars? Not really.
