Is it possible to restrict my kids' app usage (ie, snapchat, instagram, etc) using FamilyBase?

I have two teenagers and I certainly understand your desire to limited their access to some applications, RMAJCHRZAK. Family base is a great option to limit the data for the phone which prevents the device from connecting to the internet and this also prevent the use of any application that requires data (Snapchat, Instagram, etc.). Please note that your kids can still access those applications (and any application that requires data) if they connect to a WiFi network, even if you set data restrictions with FamilyBase as this feature only limits data from our network. https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/verizon-familybase-faqs/
