Work fast

Well, even when it was not working perfectly sometimes, I can give 5 stars because they are there to help me super-fast with the issues that I had, and now I can see all my kids are doing on their phones and check their locations too, it is really good for me, obviously not for them

Good in theory, poor in execution

With the caveat that we’ve only had this a few days, I’ve seen some significant gaps in Qustodio’s functioning.
First, the idea that this can be an “invisible” installation on a computer is patently false. Yes, it won’t show up on the desktop, but it shows up in a simple search or scrolling the “uninstall apps” list. My kid found it within 30 seconds of the first time he got on his computer and immediately uninstalled it.
Secondly, the parents app has limited functionality compared to what you get by logging in on the desktop. For example, you can’t adjust the off times from the app, if your kid needs to stay on late to finish homework, for example.
Third, and this is my pet peeve with most of these type of apps: there’s no “kill switch.” I want a big button that lets me immediately lock out access to the monitored device, without having to go through menus, adjust time limits or off times, or whatever. Just immediately (and temporarily) lock it out and eventually re-enable it without having to change settings back. Is that so hard?
Given that a year of this costs $50, I’ll give it some more time to see if it gets better, but otherwise I’m looking elsewhere...

Good for the parent, but not for the child.

I have Qustodio on my laptop and most say that it is a nightmare. When I was working virtually throughout the School
Year, my computer was constantly blacking out because of Qustodio and blocking school approved websites. When time is up for the day, the next day the time is still up. I also hate that when time is up it straight up shuts down your computer. On my brother’s iPad, I heard that it was blocking him from doing simple features like texting or sending dog pictures. It lets you download apps but then when you try to use the app, no movies / TV shows show up (Disney +, Netflix). I am usually very tech savvy and I know that this app is good for kids, but needs to be fixed a lot. It’s broken on our household devices and always tries to charge my mom and dad 50 USD when they paid yesterday. SCAM
