Important notes for users:
- The Qustodio family parental control & screen time app for iOS install process will ask you to install a special MDM profile and accept special permissions in order to control the internet traffic on the device. This profile can be removed or disabled by you whenever you want. Instructions for installing, uninstalling and configuring are on our help page.
- When connecting to the internet a VPN symbol will appear on the top of the screen. The VPN connection can be disabled temporarily when needed in the Family Portal or by logging into the Qustodio family parental control & screen time app on your kids device.
- Continued use of GPS running in the background for the Family Locator feature can dramatically decrease battery life.
The Qustodio family parental control & screen time app is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese & Brazilian Portuguese.
We've added details to the YouTube summary to help you track watched videos more easily and made it clearer in the Family Locator tab how to reactivate location services if locations are not being updated. As always, we recommend that you enable auto-updating in the App Store so both your and your kids' apps are always up-to-date.

We use Qustodio on our 4 year olds cell phone. Crazy, I know, to give such a young child a phone of their own. He’s actually had it since he was two because his birth mom didn’t have a phone at the time. We needed a way to communicate with her during her time with him. The platform did take some time figure and see how it works with iPhone screen time parental controls among other things such as usage of apps. Some things do conflict. I’ve spent A LOT of time trial and error on this exact topic. Even though the adults involved knew the app was installed, we knew that the phone was being used in other ways by the adult. The GPS seems to have gotten better recently. My main complaint since the latest update is that I can’t copy and paste into Works or export the data it collects anymore. This basically makes the app useless for us since we track trends of usage, etc. PLEASE! Make a function to allow data to be exported and I’d be completely happy again with the program. Right now, I am looking elsewhere though.

I wish I could give this app zero stars. Just one click on my son’s Kindle Fire on an inappropriate ad, and he had access to hundreds of porn sites. Qustodio blocked four of these sites and sent me an email. After seeing the email, I quickly checked his Kindle (that was supposedly locked down tightly with Qustodio) and found a long list of horrendous pornography sites that he had accessed. Why did it only block four, but allow all of the others? I contacted Qustodio for a refund, as I was appalled and sickened that this happened to my young son and the app had failed to do its job (that I had paid $99 for). Conveniently for them, they don’t have a customer service phone number. I filled out a form online, explaining what had happened and asking for a refund. Two weeks go by and no response. I then found a customer service email and was able to get a response. They told me that they couldn’t issue a refund since I upgraded my app through Apple. I contacted Apple to see if they could issue a refund, and they stated they couldn’t per their terms of service. Insert eye roll. I circled back to Qustodio, and they still claim that since Apple controls their payments, they are unable to issue a refund. I offered them a solution of issuing a written check to me. No response. Unacceptable. Don’t use this company. They failed to do the one job they were supposed to do - keep the garbage of pornography out of my home. And now they can’t even make it right.
I’ve had this program for almost 2 years now and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It’s been such a miracle worker. Once it’s set up on your devices you can set up and shut down any program you want in seconds. My daughter does online High School out of Phoenix. At first her being on her laptop was a HUGE a problem. She wanted to be on anything but school. I set Qustodio up on her laptop, downloaded the app to my iPhone and no more anything that could waste her time or distract her. She used to be able to get on anything on the Internet. Pictures etc. on her computer or laptop. (She’s used both.) Things I’ve never even dreamed of to do instead of her work!! This girl is creative. With this app I can shut down anything she has been on in her history or currently doing right then. It keeps track of page, window, etc. they go on. That only scratches the surface of what this AMAZING program can do. I just can’t say enough GOOD about it. If you want to keep your kids safe you need this program for their protection and your piece of mind. I say it’s right up there with Apple’s "Family Sharing Screen time Protection" 💖
