family base has 2 big bugs in it
shadowwalker1425

one i am a parent of 2 teen boys and let me tell ya they have found all the bugs in family base.. they think its a joke and now so do i!!!!!

1 first flaw i had found on family base is don't bother with the time restriction lets say you don't want your child to use his phone at SCHOOL RIGHT

not the place to be playing game or what ever they want to do... well IF THE SCHOOL HAS WI-FI YOU SETTING THE TIME RESTRICTION IS NOW NOT WORKING AS YOU THINK!!!!!FAMILY BASE DOSE NOT BLOCK WI-FI SIGNAL

TURNED ON HIS WI-FI ..if they shut off the data and don't shut off wi-fi IT WILL LOCK


family base dose not have app blockers or let you see the child's text and pic's you will need to use 3rd party app like TEEN-SAFE or acountable

2you service

i have not used teensafe but have used accountable2you

and accounable2you is 5 bucks a month.. but some times is hard to read text but will email u with chats that

have bad words or words that u set as alerts  and can see if a child try's incognito it will catch them  and list the websites they went too

can not see pic's

Verizon message+ can see text and pic's and it free but if they delete it before u see it on your computer at home then it's gone

NICE BUT MUTE..... so they can play games chat with friends and even make calls through other apps like text free,FACEBOOK MESSENGER,

They will tell ya that there friends not have service so they have to use other apps to chat with there friends

2 the biggest flaw i just found to night i had noticed that one son kept shutting his data off when he would be grounded and i had locked his

phone he says i can still listen to my music and change songs i thought ok i can deal with him listening to music

so to night i took his phone and got on my phone and LOCKED IT WITH THE DATA OFF AND WI-FI OFF HIS PHONE NEVER LOCKED TILL I

TURNED ON HIS WI-FI ..if they shut off the data and don't shut off wi-fi  it will lock

if they have iPhones you can set restrictions on the device to disable WiFi
