SaferKid Alert regularly checks to see if your children have installed any of over 200,000 age-inappropriate apps on their devices. If we find an app, we send you an alert. We also let you know what's inappropriate about the app and how to talk to your child about it.

Seems like a good idea but didn’t work for us


This app seemed like a good idea, so I downloaded the free trail. The set up is lengthy and complex if you aren’t tech-savvy. It requires you to have iCloud and the child’s phone be backed up daily on iCloud. My child’s phone said it could be backed up on iCloud. After a week of paying for more iCloud storage, trying to backup on the cloud, we had no success. Because we couldn’t get the phone to backup to iCloud, this app was useless and we cancelled. I also understand that if the child just turns off their iCloud backup or if the phone doesn’t back up for some reason, you’re not going to ever get the text activity. Again, useless!
If they can come up with a way to do this without iCloud backups, I would consider purchasing it.

Sorry you had trouble backing up your child’s phone. If you email us at, we can definitely help you get that working!

Never worked reliably


I researched monitoring apps and really tried to make this one work. However, after several months of paying more than $16 per month, I cancelled the subscription. Every single time I tried to use the app, my information was outdated, I needed to update some setting somewhere AGAIN, my child’s phone needed something adjusted or downloaded, etc. I even emailed customer service only to have them tell me to jump through the same hoops to avoid future issues. Which I did. Next time I logged in, SAME issues. Waste of money - the monthly charges were literally the only thing that was reliable about this app.

Developer Response

Can you please send an email to with your account information? I'd like to ask an engineer to look at this more deeply to make sure no one else is experiencing this. Sorry you had such a problem, and thanks in advance for working with us to get it figured out!

It’s a great concept but...


Maybe I’m not as technologically savvy as I thought I was? I have had the hardest time with this app. It only updates when your child’s phone backs up on the cloud. Meanwhile, trying to get his phone unlocked so I could give permission to the app to allow privileges I somehow managed to erase everything on his phone. And it’s 5 days behind on what the app is showing me vs. what is actually currently on his phone. Totally not worth the effort and money. At this point I’ll just have to trust my son. This is ridiculous. Did I mention I’m locked out from the cloud now?😒

Developer Response

I'm sorry you had trouble getting the app set up correctly. The content should never be 5 days behind if the device is backing up properly. SaferKid will also not cause iCloud lockouts, but repeated attempts to login with an incorrect password certainly will in any app - this to prevent hacking. These are all quick issues to resolve for our support team - if you would like help with any of these issues, please e-mail us at
