Are you concerned about what your kids are doing on their smartphones or tablets and whether they are safe?

Is there less family time at home because the kids and their screen time are out of control?

With Zift you’ll have the visibility to track in real-time, the screen time activity of each child in your family.

With the Family Feed, you’ll see:

• Instant reporting of Internet searches
• Updates on newly installed apps
• Instant alerts that your child may have viewed Pornography, Drugs, Weapons, Suicide or other inappropriate content

Ever wonder how much time your kids use their device? Zift lets parents see the daily total of each child’s screen time. Zift also gives parents the ability to adjust screen time limits and allowances instantly.

Do you ever argue with your child when it’s time for dinner or when they have had too much screen time? From your phone, Zift enables you to pause the Internet or your child’s device instantly so you can get their attention and limit screen time.

Ever worry where your child is? With Zift, you can view each child’s location with a Family Map.

Imagine the peace of mind if you had a parental control app that could...

• Tell you which apps your child has downloaded
• Act as an app blocker when you need it to
• Act as a porn blocker and block other bad content like violence with the best internet filter!

With Zift Premium, you can be sure you have the best protection available to shield your kids from online dangers.

Not all filters are created equal. Unlike most filters that block entire sites, Zift employs the award-winning Net Nanny® Smart Filter technology that looks at individual web page content and determines in real time if it is safe for your child. You’ll have complete control over the settings that will guide the monitoring, and appropriate filtering, of your kids’ devices.

Whenever Zift determines there might be an unsafe situation for your child – such as accessing dangerous app or web content – you will be notified immediately.

Zift allows parents to know, and then allow or block, the apps their child has downloaded on their device.

With Zift Premium you can enhance child safety with family locator. You can see where your child has been via family search GPS tracking by mapping their location history, and if your child loses their device, you can trace its most recent locations.

Annoying but serves a purpose

So I got this for my 12 yo hoping to identify if he was searching for things that were inappropriate. I already have family share on my IOS so he can’t put an app on without my approval and we have set times he can use it so scheduling was not an issue but I was worried about his internet searches. This was advertised as something that runs quietly in the background and can either alert a parent or block questionable items.
Set up was fairly easy. My major complaints are the fact it randomly kicks him off of the internet until he goes through and taps an “click here to turn on z- app”. It’s very annoying and a constant reminder I’m “watching” him. The biggest issue is that when it sends you an alert about inappropriate search it won’t pull it up when I click on it to see what he is looking for. It just sends me to some coding page or it says internal failure. How am I supposed to talk to him about what he’s looking at if I can’t see what he’s looking at and there is no description!! It just says inappropriate content viewed. That could be a million things.. Lastly, it does drain the battery very quickly and it would be a lot easier
To set time limits if you used actual time and not minutes or at least have that as an option. As in stop internet at 7:00 instead of add 7 hours.. Don’t get me wrong, I get everyone parents differently and these options may work for some families, unfortunately I don’t think it will work.

Developer Response ,

The child app is designed to run in the background. Is it possible that your son is swiping it away? When you open Zift, the Family Feed will show all the child’s searches and includes the actual terms that were typed in. Blocking web content is part of Zift Premium and the messages referenced are Alerts telling you about inappropriate content being accessed, including the URL where the content was found. Please let us know how to contact you at

Novel way to give parental control

I am using this on an iOS child so it does have to run in the background but I actually like the fact that my children are part of the process and know that their phone is a privilege and it comes with my oversight. But it would be nice if they had a stealth mode.

I like the family feed. I have used other products but they tend to show in accurate time on the device, especially if they’re trying to tell me the time and a particular app.

This app does what is advertisers. The time measurement does seem more accurate but the reason I am keeping this is the family feed. I like taking one quick look and getting an update of major events or possible issues. It would be nice if I could Geo fence locations I get alerts and my family feed.

Need more work than novel design.

Almost Great

I saw the app recommended on GMA. I love the idea and have no problem paying for the services. It alerted me that my 13 year old had searched a porn video. I assumed it blocked it. We later found out had was able to find inappropriate photos and save them to his phone despite all of the security features being on. How was he able to find those and save them without the app alerting me?
