It’s a parental control app that is versatile, sophisticated and easy to use that helps you control and monitor how your children use their smartphones.
Qustodio is the leading digital safety and well-being platform for families. It provides powerful monitoring tools and parental controls for things like screen time, as well as how much time they spend in certain apps like games.
Qustodio makes it easy to supervise your kids time on each device, enabling you to do things like allowing you to block inappropriate content with filters – even if they use a private browsing mode 8211; and balance screen time by limiting your child8217;s access to devices.
You can also set time limits for games and apps, as well as blocking apps you don8217;t want from running altogether. You’re also able to monitor and manage the time they can spend on social networks like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, and more.
Qustodio is quick and easy to set up. Simply set up a free account via the Qustodio website and then download the app to your children’s device. You’ll then be able to manage all the devices your kids are using via a family portal.
The online dashboard is intuitive and easy to use and provides in-depth reporting on online activity such as the time spent on each app and browser history. If they have an Android phone, you can also view sent and received text messages. You can also use Qustodio’s Family Locator feature, which enables you to use GPS tracking to see exactly where your children are and where they’ve been.
Qustodio also helps you to manage your family’s tech-life balance or digital wellbeing as it8217;s become known as. With more and more concerns being raised in the media about how much time kids spend on their devices, making sure they are doing their homework rather than chatting on WhatsApp can be a constant battle in some households.
Qustodio allows you to control individual app blocking, game blocking and set screen time limits so you can control for how long your child uses their device without having to monitor it while you8217;re busy elsewhere.
In addition to the free service, Qustodio also offers Premium subscriptions delivering more advanced features, such as a 30-day breakdown of all device activity, monitoring of social network activity and a new system for monitoring what your child looks for and watches on YouTube.
Rather than having to remember when to tell your children to come off their devices or stop using a specific app, Qustodio can manage that for you. The screen says “Time8217;s Up” to tell them they need to come back tomorrow 8211; easing you from having to be the nagging parent. You can set time limits for individual games and apps, or block them altogether.
When using Qustodio on Android, you can access your child8217;s texts, and see who8217;s calling them and who they8217;re calling. You can also block specific contacts to stop them from contacting 8211; or being contacted by 8211; certain people so they don8217;t get to phone-specific people if that becomes an issue.
Android users also have a very sensible option of being able to send a panic alert if they are in trouble or an emergency situation with the app8217;s Panic Button. Using the button instantly sends a notification to the parent8217;s app showing time and location of the alert allowing you to come to the rescue.
