Great service but...
So I love that this app lets me control all my kid’s phones, tablets and computer. The only downside is that I have had issues with the app itself acting like I don’t have a subscription (but I do) and neither Apple or Mcaffee support knew how to solve the problem. Eventually I figured out that if I open the from a different location, it opens correctly.

Thanks for the review. We are glad you like our app. We would like to know few details about your Safe Family account and address your concern with the subscription. Please contact us at service.mcafee.com. We are available 24/7.
This is the worst app ever!!! There are so many more better options than this, my kids have been hacking into it and turning everything off! When I first got it, I recommended it to my neighbor, and her kids just stole her phone to turn it off! We don’t even use it to be “safe.” I just use the time out and the schedule. If the developers want a suggestion, make it so that the adults can use their phone numbers instead of their emails, because emails are a LOT easier to hack apparently. Make it quick, or I am NEVER using or recommending this app again!!!

I am just starting to use this. So I’m sure I’ll be updating this review. So far I like it. It was easy to set up. I do have a suggestion: allow parents to set hour and minutes on their own. Like instead of half hour increments do by 5’s. For now I’m giving it four stars.
