Teacher Review

Once the user has signed up to the software they are required to set up a ‘Famisafe’ PIN used to access the application so that your child cannot change the parental settings. Once the PIN has been set up the child’s device can be connected, this can be for either an iOS or Android device. We found the instructions very easy to follow with excellent visual prompts and guidance.

Once your child’s device has been added ‘Famisafe’ offers several unique features. The parental ‘Home’ screen is intuitive and uncluttered. The icons and menus are easy to follow and provide access to unique features that include;

Child’s location real-time location - Within the map, your child’s location can be seen. This gives real-time GPS location along with the time of location and the battery power within the child’s phone. We found this a great feature especially if a child’s phone is going to run out of charge without warning. The map can be navigated easily. However, please appreciate that this often relies on the current GPS signal.

The ‘Report’ icon on the ‘Home’ page provides access to many options. These include:

Activity Report – Your child’s activity for the day from their digital device. This may include social media, YouTube, Websites, Games etc. Once again this is displayed in chronological order.

Browser History - Your child’s activity of websites they have viewed in chronological order. The activity also includes an icon to see whether the content has been blocked or not by the parental settings.

Explicit Content Detection - Explicit Content Detection will match text content to the apps keyword library. Text that contains harmful keywords will be uploaded to your device and keywords can be added by the parent. Categories for keyword detection include; Bullying, Sex, Drugs, Alcohol and many more.

App usage and blocking – Apps can be blocked from use at particular times. This could be used in many scenarios such as study time, bedtime, school time, social media and game addiction. This is an excellent feature of the application.

Web Content Blocking Filtering – ‘FamiSafe’ keeps a large database so that you could easily pre-block harmful content such as gambling sites, inappropriate content and more. This is edited accordingly.

Screen Time Tracking and Control - This feature allows parents to monitor the habits of their child when using their digital device. The device can be blocked for a while and screen limits can be set.

Location history - View the history location of your child and where they have been on an easy to read location timeline and map.

Smart Schedule – This enables the parent to schedule times where the device can be restricted. This can set up using several options that include location, start/end time, repetition and title. This is a feature that we like as it can be scheduled automatically into the device to create good screen habits.

Geofences – ‘FamiSafe’ enables the parent to set up boundaries for their child. Once enabled, parents will receive alerts when their child enters or leaves any pre-set geofences. This could be used in many scenarios such as whilst on holiday, running errands to the shops, when a child returns home from school etc. Not only does this promote independence for the child but also peace of mind for the parent.

Suspicious Photos - ‘FamiSafe’ will alert parents when suspicious phots are detected. This is a valuable feature especially in today’s digital society where cyberbullying, sexting and online grooming are such a major issue. 

The ‘Home’ screen also includes a detailed list of ‘alerts’. This is a chronological list of activity related to the child’s device. Parents can also access their ‘account settings’ via the fourth icon down on the left-hand side. This enables the parent to manage the devices linked to the application and review their account status. 

‘FamiSafe’ is an excellent application that offers peace of mind for parents and their children when using a digital device. With the increase of cyberbullying within schools, inappropriate on-line content that targets young children and the increasing issue of screen time for young people this application provides comprehensive support. The application is very easy to set up, value for money and comes highly recommended by The EducationalAppStore.com
