Disconnect Kids is a fun and unique educational app that teaches children (and their parents) about online privacy. Disconnect Kids also actively blocks requests for data about your web-browsing and in-app activity from the biggest mobile tracking services. It’s the first (and only) iOS app that stops this personal data from ever leaving your device.
▪ A comic book that introduces the topics of online tracking and targeting
▪ Two animated videos that help children and adults understand and control their personal data
▪ The ability to block and unblock the 20 most prevalent trackers of mobile browsing and app activity
Designed for ages 3 to 103.
Note: Disconnect Kids isn’t a VPN and isn’t meant to defeat Internet censorship filters. The app does use some VPN settings so cannot fully function at the same time as a VPN.

Great app made by great people
It blocks a lot of those unwanted ads and tracking beacons that leech off of your device. It works very well, in a unique way. Your data isn't actually routed through their servers, but the vpn configuration itself does the blocking. The whole experience of using my device is enhanced.
I emailed customer support with a couple suggestions and got a response right away, a friendly person letting me know that my suggestions will be implemented in versions to come. Definitely more than i expected and i think this app will keep getting better.
Overall, i am very satisfied and it was a $1.99 well spent.
Works great, almost too well
Huge fan of the guys at Disconnect and love this app, though it occasionally interferes with things I actually want to use (much like the Disconnect browser extension). Recently I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why I can no longer sign in to any apps or websites with my Google account. The "Allow" button remains disables on all Google authorization screens. I just discovered it works when this app is disabled!
Good but has fatal flaw so don't install
I had great hopes for this app and until I went to backup my iPad I was very pleased but not any more. Once the app was installed I was forced to encrypt my iPad backups. This fact was not disclosed and is the fatal flaw.
In addition it's hard for the average person to fix the encrypted backups. Just running the apps uninstall does not correct the problem you have to find the profile in settings and delete it.
Until this flaw is corrected I don't recommend installing this app and have to give only one star. If it's corrected I'll give it five stars.
