Qustodio is a free parental control app that offers simple tools to manage kids’ screen time, filter content and monitor or block apps kids use. Best of all it automagically reports kids’ online activity to you once installed.
First install Qustodio on your child’s iPhone or iPad, you’ll notice that inappropriate websites have been blocked automatically. Then install Qustodio on your own smartphone to monitor their activity.
Qustodio will provide you a daily report of all your child’s activity in your inbox. To manage your child’s web rules or screen time, just open our desktop Family Portal (https://family.qustodio.com/) from any web browser.
Want to protect more devices? You can download Qustodio to any desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. As a parent, you can manage or supervise any device directly from the Qustodio app.

Ratings and Reviews
Good parent control app. But....
Does what it days charmly. Contains parental control and what your child should see and informs you in case of a breach. Know what your child is watching.
But comes with some flaws. VPN doesn't gets off manually and hampers many critical functions. With App installed you cant update IOS updates. Delete app first then it allows to update and reinstall later. App team should look into.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry you are not having as smooth an experience with Qustodio as we’d like. Could you please contact our Customer Support team to provide them with more details about the issue you are facing? They will be more than happy to help walk you through the solution!
VPN service hampers a lot of functionality though. Only problem
Developer Response ,
Hi Kbansal - using our dashboard (accessible from our website) or our parents' app you can either navigate to the settings or your devices section. If there is ever an issue with VPN you can turn it off or on manually. If you have a specific issue with the VPN --- send it though to support. We have an internal process rolling to review all customer issues and fix them as fast as possible. Thanks!
The internet does not at all work on my son’s iPhone if the Qustodio VPN is active.
Please look into the matter, otherwise we’re afraid we must look for apps other than Qustodio.
