"This app just never works when adjusting time for child"

"Since we have Microsoft 360, I thought this would be perfect for monitoring my son`s tablet usage. Unfortunately, I can`t install it on the tablet - a Huawei MediaPad M5, presumably because it`s running an older version of Android. However, it would be nice if the developers thought about the fact that children are unlikely to be given the latest and greatest hardware so making a version of family safety software compatible with older tablets would be a plus, even if some features are excluded."

"Awful app it doesn`t work most of the time for recording screen time and the user interface is so counter intuitive and slow, half the time it fails to load. Plus I can`t even remove family members from the app. Overall one of the worst apps I`ve ever used"

"Sluggish and always failed to load notifications for time approval requests, have to refresh several times, why it has to so slow? It`s not a free service I paid for my Xbox, windows devices and paying every month for Xbox ultimate as well."

"I am actually a child of a parent that uses this on my phone, and to say the least is been ruining my life ever since my mom got this all it did was randomly turn off my phone 📱 and delet ant unsaved work and I can go on and on without saving my work so when screen time warning ⚠️ pops up it closes any folders in the background which deletes my hard work to sqare 1. Another issue is that gaming is one of the only things that brings joy to me so having a screen time warning pop up unintentional"

"I`ve been unable to view real time app usage data for family members for a few weeks. I uninstalled and reinstalled with no change. Edit: upon further investigation, it looks like it`s the API, not the app. I`m also unable to view this data on the web. Changing my rating since it isn`t the app specifically."

"Used to work just fine and it was awesome, but sometime in the last 2 weeks something happened to the app and now it isn`t working. I`m unable to see where other family members are and they can`t see me. I`m hoping that it gets fixed in the near future because it was a really good app and I liked using it."

"Complete garbage. App rarely works and never communicates with the devices properly. I end up having to go on myself and do it manually. Might as well just put a timer on the power bar."
