  • Easy to use

    Very easy to use, if you use some common sense, which apparently not all have. I have many. Complaints about Verizon but this one isn’t one of them. Love that I can easily shut it down from my phone and get set hours to what is useful to my family.
  • App has potential, but has a long way to go

    We have been TRYING to use this app for a couple months, in preparation for a child starting middle school. It has a lot of nice features...that keep turning off on their own!!!! (arrival/leave notifications), giving false errors (need to sync to child’s phone, location services not working properly [sometimes you gotta have a phone turned off]), logging you out (stay logged in checked), and fingerprint not working (when enabled). When you have an app whose sole purpose is to keep tabs on your child - and it only works SOMETIMES - then what good is it really? And for a monthly fee!!!????. C’mon, you can do better. I’ll be asking for a credit each month until you can make this work consistently.

    Teaches each child to be accountable with who they talk and text. Communication is the key to Smart Fam
  • 911

    Seriously, because I dialed 911 the program was canceled and I have to reset the whole entire thing starting with getting the app again? There was a live wire on the ground, I had to call 911 or someone was going to get hurt.

    I’m unhappy because I pay $10.00 per month for a service that doesn’t alert me when my child leaves home or arrives at home. It also doesn’t keep me signed in(ridiculous). It doesn’t always track the text messages or phone calls, Verizon should live up to their name, these days it’s very important to track kids whereabouts, get notified when they depart and arrive home or a specified location, and track their phone habits. I’ve been reading reviews and a number of parents have the same concerns. This app should also notify parents when a new app is downloaded or if Smart Family is disabled. Please correct these errors. I like the idea but it needs to work.
  • Data limits

    Love to be able to share the data with limits and avoid the overage charges

    I have been waiting the app to finally get upgrading and be worth while. I do see a dramatic difference from over a year ago however I have been a user for 3 weeks and I would say 50% of the time I cannot sign in and I have to be connected to a network to use it. So if my kids are complaining and I want to make a change from the car or being out I cannot. Honestly does. Have a group of moms come in for the design. Omg I can’t even send this easily
  • Worthless

    Completely useless. Don't wast your time. It does not function correctly in any of our families phones. And yes, support folks, our systems are current so don't waste your time with a reply. It is just a very poorly designed app.
  • It’s great so far
