Ratings and Reviews
Will not continue with this app.
This app is unreliable. The maps very rarely update. It still shows me at work when I have been home for two days. Tells me my son is speeding when he’s not. (When he’s in the car with me and I can verify it’s false) I set the speed for 35mph and it will alert me between 25-30mph🤷♀️ It’s deleted the picture for my husband twice, who is also apparently still at work according the app, when he’s had the whole week off.
I’ll find out that my son is at one of our safe spots about an hour after he’s left it.
I was very excited when I first learned of this app, but unfortunately we will be moving on to an app that is more reliable and helps me keep track of my children. The safety of our children is too important for these kinds of mistakes.

The app will work best if both Wifi and Data are enabled on the device. If only one is used the feedback may become delayed or intermittent. Additionally, please double check all devices to insure full permissions are granted to the app and the wifi and data are enabled. If the issue remains we suggest restarting the devices themselves and/or uninstalling/re-installing the app.
I got this app cause it had such great reviews and I honestly can’t see why. The map has yet to be accurate since I downloaded it I’ve tracked the phone while it’s right next to mine and it’ll say it’s miles away from here when it’s not. I get no speeding alerts whatsoever or check in spots. The main reason I got this app was to keep track of text messages and phone calls and apparently because I have a iPhone that’s not possible. Also didn’t realize once my child signs out of social media or changes her password it automatically boots me off the account. Maybe revamp MamaBear before you claim to have this amazing parenting app.

Hi there, We would love to monitor text messages on Apple devices however apple will not allow any third parties to monitor text messages, this is one of their security features.
Here our links to our FAQ and Feature page which help to explain our app capabilities more thoroughly.
One of the best apps for parents!
I finally feel like I’ve found an app that’s geared towards parents wanting to be involved in their kids safety. This app has so many cool features making me feel confident that I know what’s going on with my child. The subscriptions are such a reasonable price too! Definitely recommended to all my mom friends out there. The new update is awesome!!
