Verizon Smart Family™ App Reviews

    This app doesn’t work. When trying to install the companion app, it does not give option to install VPN, leaving me completely stuck. Now I’m stuck with the old app gone (which was clunky and not user friendly) and this one won’t install. I’ve been patient through many generations of Verizon Family Base, but my patience is gone.

    This app and the “protection” it is supposed to provide is BOGUS. WHY PAY FOR A SERVICE THAT DOES NOT DO AS ITS STATES - you will Not receive the warnings and alerts as STATED! This program does not record or track all the texting and phone calls as advertised. I find my child repeatedly gets text from sexual predators that I’ve blocked!!!
  • Update horrible

    By Azszyyyg
    The recent update messed up all of the content filters. Who cares about the location services, especially since they want to charge you an additional fee for it! Disappointed with Verizon
  • Has Potential

    By Rorie 👍
    App completely shuts down after about 1minute. Hard to use if it shuts down.
  • Worst App

    By Dr.David
    Is it possible to make a worse app?!?! Who ever wrote this app should never write code again. It is the most illogical piece of garbage I have seen since 1984! Verizon should be ashamed of this app and give us these functions as part of the premium they get from us for their cell service. Most frustrating and worst app I have ever used. Need it to keep expenses down, but makes me want to scream. Pure garbage.
  • Update

    By Noonie40
    I don’t like that it’s not updated at all it was showing me phone messages and Phone calls, but now it’s not showing me when they text other people and vice versa. I can see when they text online, but I don’t have a computer at home just an iPhone and an iPad and it doesn’t let me do it unless it’s from a computer.
  • Says my child phone isn’t paired

    By **Xxx
    I really liked this app when I got it. It allowed me to block very specific areas on my daughter’s phone, specifically her social media. However, in the last week it tells me her phone is not paired when I try to go into the content filters. All of the other areas are still working(activity, controls, etc) but the content filters say she is not paired. I have even disconnected and repaired her phone. Please fix this bug, or tell me what I am doing wrong. Thank you!
  • Battery

    By ihatevpn
    This app will kill your battery. My phone will be at 50% and I look away for 1 second and it’s at 20% I don’t recommend it. Just trust your children instead of tracking them
  • Buyer Beware - not iPad compatible.

    By Wise Consumer DS
    Great concept. You’d think it would work across all Apple products. We have had Family Base for two years. Have it on our kids phones and thought we had it on our son’s iPad - well kinda. We could control time restrictions and data usage BUT NOT “Content Filters” which is THE MOST IMPORTANT part for a teenager. What’s up with that. Loved the concept till I found out its limitations.
  • Such a piece of junk

    By Barrinuevo
    I would give this a minus 5 rating if I could. As many others stated, nothing really works. This is a paid service? It’s robbery to mislead customers that this does anything other than steal their money. It errors trying to sign in, you can not save any settings, etc... I feel like it was just a marketing scam for people with children who want to secure their family’s lines then once you’ve signed up, they pick your pocket and play dumb. I will be searching for other carrier options to secure my kids’ lines.
