Good app

Overall, I’m finding Kidslox to be a useful, easy way to have limits on my daughter’s screen usage. The weekly reports are informative and give me assurance that she is not abusing her screen time. Controlling it all from my phone is great and so convenient. I also like the ability to add or remove time on the set daily limits. I use that a lot for when she earns more time by doing chores. One improvement that could be made would be to have the ability to shut down text and phone calls during certain hours, except for emergencies. Because while I can set a daily limit and control app usage so that even if she has more time before she reaches the limit she can’t use it after a certain time at night, she can still text freely for hours on end and I have no able to track or limit that. So I still have to confiscate her phone every evening so she isn’t up all night texting her friends. I wish there was a way to set limits on texting too other than taking away her phone. But overall, it is a good app and I’m happy I bought the lifetime subscription so I can also use it when my younger children get phones when they are older.

PC app required for set up & its a pain

I downloaded this app a year ago, tried the free version and eventually paid for premium subscription. I was able to successfully restrict access to certain apps, inappropriate content and screentime for my daughters phone very well. I gave for the success of that time. However, we upgraded phones recently and the set up has been so very difficult!! In order to set up premium features it now requires me to download the PC app as well. Well, whatever it tries to download NEVER downloads and stay stuck at 5%. i have tried downloading again, rebooted, deleted and reinstalled and never manage to finish set up because its get stuck at 5% download. PC app is so irritating. Wish I could do everything thru the phone app like I did before in my initial set up. I tried reaching out for help and haven’t heard back in two days. Didn’t get an auto response acknowledging my email so I’m not sure if anyone will eventually get back to me.
*Update* i eventually received a response and they tried getting more info to fix it. Replied back and said that it had been fixed and they released a new ISO version BUT it still doesn’t download past 5%. I really liked this but I can no longer use my paid subscription and only get watered down features that are hardly helpful on their own. It doesn’t seem a fix is coming before my subscription expires, so I definately won’t be renewing to $50 subcription.

We are deeply sorry for the inconveniences you are experiencing. We continue our work on this issue and are trying to fix it as soon as possible. Meanwhile you can continue using Kidslox as previously (all the old features will work even if you haven't set this new premium feature). Please, make sure that you update our support team ( on the fact that you didn't manage to set premium and they will get back to you once we have an update.

Purchasing lifetime subscription

I really like this app. I also own the Circle and used that for a few months but then my brother in law introduced me to Kidslox. I tried the 14 day trial period and today is the day it expires. I had to decide if I wanted to keep using Kidslox. And I decided to go for it. I love how I am not limited to the WiFi in my house and I can still control my kids devices outside of the house. For the most part everything works smoothly except the timer. For example I generally allow my kids 2 hours of iPad a day. The devices do lock after 2 hours but the timer keeps running for some reason. There are times it shows my kids were on for 3,4,5 plus hours. Which is confusing and when I want to give them more time I have to extend out to the end of day instead of just 30 min or 1 hour. Are we doing something wrong how come the timer keeps running? Other than that I believe I love the app... look forward to more features and upgrades. Thanks

Update Comment: Is there a pause button? It would be great if there was the ability to pause my children’s iPad instead of having to put it in lock mode.
