About Kaspersky Safe Kids Family GPS

Kaspersky Safe Kids is an internet monitoring and protection app designed for families and children. The app works across all of your devices, PC, Mac, and mobile, to make sure your family isn’t exposed to harmful or inappropriate content.
 
With a free but limited app version you may try to grasp the idea of what Safe Kids is look like before paying for it. With full version you may control websites that your kids browses on desktop and mobile, control which app he/she may install and use and finally limit the time child’s laptop or mac is available. 

Teacher Review

Many parental control programs are best suited for either desktop or mobile platforms, but Kaspersky Safe Kids works well on Android, iOS, Macs, and PCs. 

Pricing and Platforms

Kaspersky Safe Kids is a great value. For $14.99 a year, you can create as many child profiles and monitor as many devices as you want, regardless of platform. Norton Family Parental Control ($49.99 per year) and Screen Time ($39.99 per year) are some of the few others that also do not impose device limits. A $79.99 subscription for Net Nanny gets you five licenses. For a slightly higher price than Norton, Qustodio covers five devices for $54.95 per year.

If you are specifically looking to monitor your child on mobile platforms, take a look at our roundup of the best parental control apps for your phone.

Getting Started

Installing Safe Kids on a Windows system is quick and simple. You just need to connect with your online My Kaspersky account or sign up for free. As with Norton Family Premier and Qustodio, Kaspersky lets you perform configuration tasks mainly through the online console (or via the mobile apps). The local agent simply enforces the rules. Kaspersky Safe Kids offers a single app on both the Google Play store and the App store; you choose the child or parent mode during setup.

How to start:

*For iPhones & iPads, you can only apply age-appropriate limitations.
**Owing to restrictions within the operating system, it’s not possible to block children’s iPhones & iPads. Instead, children will see a ‘time is up’ notification – if they exceed the usage time limit set by their parent.
***We recommend that you turn on your Global Positioning System (GPS) to increase the accuracy of your child’s location. Please note, the GPS usage increases battery power consumption.
