Is the Qustodio app easy to use?

The ‘home’ screen displays the children that have their devices connected. It is noted that the app will only control what happens via the Qustodio app although there are some flexibilities for scheduling when this happens. The app design itself is clean and intuitive with simple navigation menus and icons. The top left allows the user to access their account where they can find setting such as ‘Your Devices’, ‘Your Account’ and ‘Your Family’. Once the child has been selected from the ‘Home screen’ the app displays a simple to read Activity tracker where parents can set time limits and block days from mobile use. At the time of this Qustodio review, devices could be added manually and details can be edited.

The ‘Rules’ icon enables the parent to set a number of rules for the child’s device. These include daily limits, restricted times, web filtering, games and apps filtering, calls and SMS monitoring, location tracker and social media monitoring. The application’s real-time filter also blocks inappropriate content even in private browsing mode.

The ‘Restricted Times’ setting is an excellent feature; here screen time can be restricted throughout the day. The numerous options are excellent with some truly innovative features such as the ‘panic’ button which is a great idea for safeguarding.

When using Qustodio Parental Control on the child’s device you are requested to sign in as the parent and follow to instructions to allow a profile to be set up. Once complete parents can access their child’s mobile activity via the online dashboard. This dashboard is very easy to understand and is presented in a clear and easy to use manner.
