It’s ok…

Ok I know it works but their are a lot of downsides. If you a new parent here is the review for you. This is the take from a teen who has had this app sense 10 years of age.
1: It shuts of your phone randomly and will take hours to start again.
2: It invades people privacy and shares what websites and apps your on with you’re a parent/guardian.
If you don’t want your kids to be on the Internet, don’t do it. If your going to give them a device that can show them the true world let them see it. You will be better off not giving them a phone if your going to limit it. Once it’s given theres no turning back. When you limit their devices their just going to become more difficult and depending on it. If you don’t want your kid to be mad and rude then I would suggest not downloading this app, or any app like it. If you are going to give them a device I suggest giving them, full access to the world, their going to have to see it one day you can’t protect them forever. The last option is just don’t give them the device at all. The best to choose from (from a teens perspective) are not giving them it or giving them full access. This app or many apps like this can make them sad and turn against you. When you are a growing person you want to have control over your life, I feel as if you take away the online aspect, you are also taking away that feeling of control. You don’t have to agree but here is my review of the app.

Won’t be renewing subscription

When I first started using this app, I thought it was amazing and recommended it to all my friends. Now I’ve encountered enough bugs that I won’t be renewing my subscription.

-You can’t give more than one reward a day (I did find a workaround but you shouldn’t have to do that)

-It messes with third party apps. I started using it on my devices to control my twitter usage and next thing I knew, I was no longer able to use my bank’s bill pay or online chat and I when used google search, I would click on an ad but the website would not open. Once I stopped using it on my devices, I had no further issues.

-I paused the internet on one profile using the nighthawk app and even after I unpaused it, the user wasn’t able to access wifi on their devices. I had to uninstall and reinstall the my time app on their device.

-I don’t know exactly how their system works but it seems to count usage in increments of 5 minutes which quickly eats up time.

-The my time app itself counts against the daily time each profile is allowed which also quickly eats up time. This seems to only happen if the app is accessed which is a lot when you have curious kids.

I did contact Netgear support about the daily rewards issue and it was an absolute waste of my time.

100% Ineffective Security Theater

The best way to bypass this app is to simply delete it from your Home Screen and voila! Your kids can resume watching inappropriate videos recommended by AI algorithms. Additionally the VPN interferes with so many other things the juice isn’t worth the squeeze.
