Automatically disconnecting one child's phone from Smart Family Companion App

We are using Verizon Smart Family premium, and one of my children's phones keeps removing permissions for the Smart Family app.  The other child's phone stays connected.  My son was listening to a class in front of me the last time it disconnected, so I'm certain that he's not removing the permissions.  How do we stop this, so we aren't resetting the permissions multiple times a day?

@amybeee ,

It's quite unusual that permissions for Smart Family are being removed on its own, so we'll need to get more details to best assist. When you say that "it disconnected" when your son was listening to a class, what exactly happened? For example, did you get a notification on your phone (what exactly did it show) and did anything similar show up on your son's phone? Are you going into his phone to remake these permissions, or using the Smart Family app on your own phone?

It automatically disconnects, I get a message at the top of my screen sometimes saying that it's disconnected, and if I log into the Family app I have a yellow box at the top telling me that it has disconnected. When he goes into the family companion app, he has a message at the top that says that it has disconnected. There's a button to press to fix it, which takes him into the app settings so he can once again re-enable the app. Has never happened on my daughter's app, happens multiple times a day for my son. Help!

amybeee, thank you for sharing this helpful information. Let's continue to review. When did this concern start? What is the Make/Model of your son's device? Can you please confirm that his device has the latest Software Update? Also, is the Companion app up to date on his device?
