  • Great app

    By sdisney
    Awesome app and easy to use
  • Useless!!!

    By don dayao 17
    I was very thrilled at the beginning coz I thought finally I found the right one. I only wanted the child and lockdown mode. I immediately tested the app for my 2 kids and it worked. I was ecstatic. I set the schedules but the next day, it only worked for one child. My other child called to ask if her phone could be unlocked coz the schedule didn’t work. It was still on lockdown even if the schedule is on child mode already. Despite the inconvenience of doing this almost daily, we deleted the app and reinstalled to give it another try and after 2 weeks, I HAD ENOUGH!!! I cancelled my subscription and deleted the app.
  • Great but could fix some things

    By hempelhouse4
    So I’ve been using this app for a while now and the only negative comment is that kidslox moves all the apps out of folders and places them all over. Having to download another file as a fix for this causes my daughters phone to crash or freeze. This is annoying fir me and SJSU for my teenager who’s life revolves around her phone

    By Fancy letters are so luxary
    ok 1 star rating. Is crashing my WiFi, my phone, AND MY WHOLE HOUSE (tv, and others Devices.) plz were trying to get rid of this app and it won’t let me T^T IM SUPER Disappointed about this app 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
  • I think there’s a glitch..

    By I'm weird owo
    Hi uhm..So, I might’ve found a glitch where I will try to buy something for my kid but it tells me I can’t but I turned that switch that says In app purchases require password on and that other switch that says in app purchases allowed and I put on allow. If I am wrong, please tell me. And by the way, If I have to pay for this, It’s not really worth it cause my kid isn’t really happy now and it’s starting to be a problem where my kid would text me or call me saying “ Mom I can’t believe you downloaded that thing just to make me annoyed! “ So Sorry But I don’t really like this that much. Thank you.
  • Would Downlaod Properly to my Kids Phone!!

    By Ob.wan.gynobi
    Useless if the app won’t download properly to your kids phone. He has an I phone 7. They charged me anyways even though I supposedly had a free 7 day trial. I had to call Apple to get the charges reversed.
  • The buggiest app I’ve used

    By Renat G.
    Great idea. But the dev team has not thought about all of the scenarios it seems like. Internal server errors. App freezes. Not to say that you probably don’t talk to your customers much or have a product lead. The user flows are just not intuitive. Much love what what you guys are doing. But you do need to step up the game in product.
  • Works great!

    By MnGolfer
    This app works great! My kids are younger, so they don’t have their own phones really, but they play with my old phones. Once their time is up for the day all the third-party apps disappear from the screen. We tried a different app that was similar for a few months, and it was constantly glitching and I had to delete and reinstall it several times. So far Kidslox has been working well without glitches. I bought the lifetime subscription so I hope the company sticks around!!
  • Works when servers aren’t clogged

    By Rob Hackett
    I have had Kidslox for almost a week now. The design and interface are nice, but I have already encountered a “Servers are clogged” message. When I saw this on the app’s FAQ, I was wondering how often this happens. Apparently quite often. The main issue with this is that the servers are “dumb” and only transmit changes in function (eg lock / unlock). If the servers or apps could respond to scheduled changes, then these would occur regardless of server congestion. This does not happen, so it become impossible to unlock an device until the servers become available. My son’s iPad is locked from 10pm-7am, and I was unable to unlock it before he went to school. This means that the servers have been clogged for at least an hour. That’s quite a long time...
  • Does what it should, but . . .

    By Seabass89521
    It only took my 14-year-old one day to look up how to easily disable it. All he has to do is go into the settings and delete the profile the app installs and there’s no way to password protect the profile. Plus the way it rearranges all of the phone’s icons is pretty annoying.
