Ratings and Reviews
Good in theory
This app is good in theory, but not in practice. When I use the “deny access now” button for one of my kids’ devices it does not automatically turn off their WiFi access. I’m not sure that it turns it off at all because they are able to keep playing the game they are in.
Also, I have tried and tried to set up the “access policies” in a way that will allow my kids WiFi access when I want them to have it but the way it is set up is very frustrating. If I want to allow them access on Friday at 8 am through Sunday at 9 pm there isn’t a way I can find to allow them continuous access during those parameters. It will give access only until 11:45 pm on Friday and Saturday and then restart access at midnight (00:00) so there is a 15 minute gap with no access.
I decided to pay more with Allo than I did with or previous provider because I wanted this app. Unfortunately it isn't living up to my expectations.
I don’t like this app at all.
I’m updating my review to say that this app is super frustrating to use. I don’t even like it a little.
Has a lot of neat features
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
