  • Good PC App. Could Be Better

    By TDA listen
    Like the app design and functions also UI is easy to use. I like it as a good way to do parental control over kids smart phone usage. And VPN is fast enough at least haven’t heard complain of internet speed from kids so far. The app is well thought out and well built! However, unfortunately, I see one shortage of this app which is : it doesn’t really regulate overall screen time. It only limits the “entertainment time “ which is the time of using an app identified by unGlue as one of “entertainment apps “ which could be outdated or incomplete or inaccurate. There’s no way to customize based on what installed for what are the list of apps to monitor and limit the time of use. That shortage defects the purpose of reducing overall usage of a phone by a kid. I probably have to try out other PC apps before sticking on one to pay for the service
  • Messed up vpn on my iPhone x

    By SandhuSandeep
    This app needs more testing, I restarted my iPhone x after installing this app. My phone kept asking for vpn authentication, not even giving chance to enter anything. The popup kept coming and closing non stop. Restared my phone again, quickly before it could pop i tried deleting the app, first time not successful, tried twice and then I could. Now it doesn’t let me turn off the vpn from settings. Its messed up!
  • Looked at em all

    We test drove all the parental controls currently available. In terms of ease of use, features and cost this is the best. Sadly none of the “best of” online reviews listed unGlue - so we only found out it existed by digging through the App Store. Very glad we did - my kids and wife all live it.
  • So wanted it to work...

    By unhappy_8326342
    I tried really hard. The service is so simple, and so well-designed, that I really wanted it to work. But the problems with unGlue are too much at this time. The application will not work for my daughter at school, because the school blocks all VPNs (and we need to be able to communicate with her at school). And in order to prevent the kids from “device hopping” at home (to avoid the time limits), we ordered the Puck. Unfortunately, the Puck does not work well. It is very unstable, and it significantly limited the WiFi network throughput. And support has gone totally unresponsive. Tomorrow, my Circle device arrives..... I’ll see if their service is any better.
  • Best tool to unplug child

    By Marmak143
    Kids are addicted to their electronics this way you can monitor the time they’re on. Also what they’re looking at. Well worth the cost for peace of mind
  • Wish we could select apps that need to be limited and add additional categories

    By Keonalavwana
    We like this app okay. It does not register several of the games that my kids play. If I had the ability to add more apps to the entertainment category it would be a 5 star app. It seems like things that don’t connect to WiFi are the problem apps.
  • Awesome App

    By Cb862267
    Works great at helping me control the time on my kids phone.
  • Doesn’t Work

    By D209a)$
    My daughter was still able to access her social media after she was out of time. When I tried to block her internet usage completely, it also didn’t work. Regret purchase.
  • LOVE this app!

    By CarissaHawkins
    Love being able to monitor my kids tech usage as well as have visibility into what they are doing.
  • Love it

    By Sheenamomof3
    Very easy to use. I have 3 kids who all have androids and I have an iPhone. I can manage their time on their tablets and their android phones straight from the app on my phone. I can also see what their time was spent on. At first, my kids didn’t like the idea. Then I noticed that they have become more motivated to do things around the house to earn extra time. I was worried that my kids could bypass their time allotments using their mobile data since I set it up using my home wifi but luckily the time allotment includes the data and wifi time. Very nice set up I have been using it for about 4 months now.
