Qustodio is a free parental control app that offers simple tools to manage kids’ screen time, filter content and monitor or block apps kids use. Best of all it automagically reports kids’ online activity to you once installed.

Getting Started:
First install Qustodio on your child’s iPhone or iPad, you’ll notice that inappropriate websites have been blocked automatically. Then install Qustodio on your own smartphone to monitor their activity.

Qustodio will provide you a daily report of all your child’s activity in your inbox. To manage your child’s web rules or screen time, just open our desktop Family Portal ( from any web browser.

Want to protect more devices? You can download Qustodio to any desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. As a parent, you can manage or supervise any device directly from the Qustodio app.

What does Qustodio do on iOS?
Web filtering and monitoring: On your child’s device you’ll automatically get free web monitoring using our secure VPN technology. Your kids will be protected from inappropriate content or any site you choose whether they use Safari, Chrome or any other web browser.

Screen Time Controls: Qustodio can control Screen Time. Our technology uses will allow you to set a time schedule or a quota of when your kids are allowed to use their device. When time is up, internet and access to all apps rated for users 4+ will be disabled.

App Controls: Qustodio can report, monitor and/or block more than 50 popular apps used by kids, and you can view their usage.

Free vs. Premium
With Qustodio Free you can protect up to one kid’s device free, and monitor from as many parents’ devices as you want.

Qustodio Premium will allow you to monitor more kids’ devices, and you’ll get access to more reporting information and features from your parent’s device.

I paid for the product before using the trial as it advertised all the features I wanted to have as a parent for my child’s phone. This product downloaded fine and set up a VPN on the phones although there was absolutely no feature that worked. It would send me a report daily indicating the the my child’s phone had no activity which was not the case. I literally used my child’s phone, tested the internet safety browser feature and that feature did not stop searches that I wanted to avoid. Also, it did not track my sons location, the panic button did not work. Please be warned no feature worked and your wasting your time with it if you have an iPhone and I would hope Apple removes this from the App Store. Additionally, the company only provides customer service through email and they responded 2 times to my email; one auto reply indications that it was received and another canned email stating that refunds needs to be handled through the Apple App Store. PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF THE FRUSTRATION AND DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU INTEND TO USE THOS WITH APPPLE PRODUCTS.... THEIR COMPATIBILITY CLAIM ARE A SCAM.

Developer Response

Hi Awsit, thanks for the review. To me it sounds like there is an issue with the configuration of the account. Sometimes users end up creating two different accounts and don't realise that that they aren't linked together. Or another thing that may happen is that something has failed in the installation process. However, once the VPN is installed and working properly you should immediately see activity on your dashboard and in your reports. If you don't please contact support again and we will get you sorted. The most important thing to do is to make sure the installation was done properly. Regarding refunds: For all purchases made on our website we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If purchases are made through the AppStore all refund requests must be handled directly by Apple.

So close to perfect


I've had this app installed for a little under 24 hours. Installation and set up were very easy. I went through and looked at the features and set up rules, tracking and SOS. The problem came when I set up the usage schedule. I set it to block internet at 9pm and it immediately locked her out at 8:20 pm. I tried setting it for 10pm and it still locked her out. I set it for locked from 9pm to 6am and unlocked the rest of the time. It randomly locked her out at about 1:30 pm preventing her from using the camera for notes in class. Epic fail. We emailed support and haven't heard from them or even "we received your request" nothing. After reading many reviews I expect support is not offered. The premium service is not cheap and support should be included, so I cancelled and uninstalled. I still haven't received a cancelled email confirmation. All of the other features worked so good. If they had these 2 things, they would be perfect!

Customer support lacking and youngest son cracked security 4 different ways within a week


I have attempted to contact customer support with my concerns about how easily this program is worked around and have had no success with receiving any form of return contact from my emails. Within a week my son had presented me with four different way that he has been able to bypass any Qustodio and the loopholes do not allow for any control over questionable internet site usage if that is your goal. Setup and management has been easy but I am quite frustrated that Qustodio has not responded to my concerns using their customer service link and I would NOT recommend this product to parents with the intention of monitoring their kids internet usage. There are too many ways around this software and the developer does not seem to be concerned enough to assist their clients when we bring up our valid concerns to their attention. I want my money back after less than two weeks of use!!!
