Terrible experience for our family.

We’ve had Qustodio Premium for about two months now on our son’s devices. At first, we thought it’d be a great choice for our filtering needs. Unfortunately there are so many bugs within the app itself and its VPN that it has basically rendered itself useless for us. When scrolling through the activity log for the day, it refreshes once you’ve reached the bottom of the list and appears to load new content, but it’s the same content as shown at the top of the list (as per the timestamps.) The app’s VPN connection also messes with location settings for other apps that require a specific geographical/regional location in order to use them (e.g. Disney+) so he is unable to use them! Qustodio has also caused iCloud issues with our HomeKit smart devices and has prevented him from controlling things as simple as the lights in his bedroom. Altogether, it’s a great idea but needs major renovations and improvements in order for it to be user friendly and its app usage data to be accurate. The premium subscription is in no way inexpensive so I can’t help but feel we were somewhat cheated out of our money. Please do your research ahead of time.

Fantastic product!!

I’ve had this program for almost 2 years now and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It’s been such a miracle worker. Once it’s set up on your devices you can set up and shut down any program you want in seconds. My daughter does online High School out of Phoenix. At first her being on her laptop was a HUGE a problem. She wanted to be on anything but school. I set Qustodio up on her laptop, downloaded the app to my iPhone and no more anything that could waste her time or distract her. She used to be able to get on anything on the Internet. Pictures etc. on her computer or laptop. (She’s used both.) Things I’ve never even dreamed of to do instead of her work!! This girl is creative. With this app I can shut down anything she has been on in her history or currently doing right then. It keeps track of page, window, etc. they go on. That only scratches the surface of what this AMAZING program can do. I just can’t say enough GOOD about it. If you want to keep your kids safe you need this program for their protection and your piece of mind. I say it’s right up there with Apple’s "Family Sharing Screen time Protection" 💖

this app is a horrendous concept of “safety.” i’m a 15 year old girl with a 17 year old sister, and we’ve had this on our phones since summer 2018. i’m not sure who came up with the idea of creating and releasing an app like this, but whoever it was needs a death penalty. my parents are way overprotective, and it’s not out of “love.” we can’t do ANYTHING after 9PM, which is by far WAY before we even think about settling down for bed, and the app has caused our social media’s to crash. the app glitches constantly & doesn't send reports to my moms phone through the app anymore, and it’s causing a lot of chaos within our relationship because she thinks we’re messing around with the restrictions even though we have no access to the app through our side. we could only do it on her or our dad’s phone but we don’t know their passcodes. we both have iphone XR’s and the app has slowed our phones down and our battery life has gone down drastically. if you’re the parent of a teen reading this review, please please PLEASE don’t put this on your teen’s phone(s). it gives us hell & causes an unhealthy relationship between us and our parent(s). we deserve some sort of element of trust, but this makes us feel like we have no trust in you. overly strict & overprotective parents = rebellious teens. and please remember that.
