Child can simply delete the app and no notification is sent. If child has an iPhone you can go on settings>general>restrictions, and set website restrictions up with a passcode only you know and this works far better and the child can still use safari. Don’t waste your money when iPhones have this feature for free and far superior.

Very poor

I liked the concept and it just does not work. I’m pretty shocked a major corporation is willing to put something on the market so poor.

It took me 3 days to find out that the online backup storage they had advertised was not available on a Mac. They simply mis sold that bit of the product.

Online help of any kind is not good enough for such a complex product. For example instructions are in many places outdated.

I’ve just tested the child safety bit. I fortunately tested this before making my daughters use it. In addition to protecting them from doing anything nefarious it protects them from doing their homework. If I wanted to stop them doing anything on the internet then I would just ban them

I keep getting into awful loops along the lines of Norton protection stopping Norton updates.

Some bits look promising- if they keep working

Developer Response ,

Hello, Child safety with Norton Family protects the child as defined in the house rules by the parent. You can set time schedules as required and allow/deny websites such that the child can browse the internet safely and complete their homework.
