No way to save password or set default login screen

There should be a way to save login information in the Apple keychain so I don’t have to type it in every time. Contacted support once and was told to set auto logout to never and that didn’t change anything. I would also like to be able to set it to open directly to the dashboard so I don’t have to see the announcement page which our school never uses. These would save a lot of time since we use the app every day.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. We will address the ability to save your password in the Apple keychain for you. Regarding the school announcements page, the school controls whether this page is displayed. We'd be glad to contact the school on your behalf and ask them to turn it off. Please reach out to us at: support@fetchkids.com and provide the school name.

Trash and then some

This app is complete trash. Who wants someone monitoring where you are at all times? Not me. Privacy is a huge issue right now and this app
Claims it only alerts the school when you are close and that it doesn’t save your location info. Sound familiar? Same song and dance that other apps have claimed and then been fined for. Hate the app, hate the fact that my son’s school wants to use this. Note: if you do not turn on location services, app doesn’t work. I can’t have location services on because of my job position, so more reasons why this app is trash. Would give negative stars if possible.

FetchKids responded to my review, however it wholly failed to address the privacy issue. It does track your location (GPS is a tracking tool to know your exact location in order to inform the school how far out you are), and it failed to respond to the issue of location services being turned off. After the response, I would rate this app as a negative 5 (-5).

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Just to clarify, FetchKids does not know where you are at all times. FetchKids sends only your arrival time to the school while a pickup is in progress and that is calculated using GPS, as there is no other way to calculate your arrival time accurately. Arrival time info is transmitted in real time and after the pickup is finished no location information is collected or saved. The goal is to provide the school with advance notice so your child is ready when you arrive, increasing efficiency and safety, and reducing your wait time at the school. The privacy and security of all families using FetchKids is of utmost importance to us. If you have any other questions or concerns, or if you need more information, please contact us at: support@fetchkids.com.

Disaster for Multiple Kids

When someone else does drop off, both kids are never dropped off successfully. Then when I go to pick up, I’m not able to alert both teachers because it says someone else is still dropping off one of the kids. Also- why isn’t there a drop off va pick up button. It alarming when it says my kids are picked up when I’m expecting them to be dropped off. Last, it often logs in and out 3 or 4 times during my 20 minute commute. It will say one of my kids has been picked up and I always panic that the wrong person picked up my kids!

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for your feedback. Just to clarify, FetchKids is designed for picking up children from school, not for dropping them off. This is the reason why you are seeing pickup and not drop off messages. Drop offs that are not completed are also the result of the school not using FetchKids as it was designed. Schools have requested a drop off feature and it's in the works, but it has not been released yet. We understand that this can cause confusion and distress for you. It would be helpful if you could let us know which school your children attend as as we'd like to provide more training for them on how to use FetchKids. Please contact us at: support@fetchkids.com so we can discuss these issues in more detail.
