Super app 5 Stars
by iphoneuser85368644 – May 30, 2017
“I have tried a lot of these, but Forcefield is the best. I set a repeating schedule to sleep the apps on my boys’ phones during homework every night and it works perfectly. No social media distractions during study or sleep time. Although they would never admit it, I think my kids actually like the app down time.”
Great 5 Stars

“Great App for parental control”
Kid friendly! 5 Stars
by AB36Beez – May 24, 2017
“The 1 star reviews are clearly written by kids, not parents! As a parent I like this product better than others I’ve tried because it’s the most kid-friendly and family-friendly. It does NOT have a spyware mode which my kids appreciate. Any hope of keeping kids safe on line has to be based in trust!”
A great option 5 Stars
by Healthycc – May 24, 2017
“As a parent and a child development specialist, I understand both personally and professionally that families need to find the ways that work best for them. Forcefield for parents is a wonderful option to help regulate and monitor kids’ activity. In the same way you wouldn’t let your kids wander around the city or the world without whatever level of monitoring you deemed appropriate, you don’t want to let them wander around the Internet without supervision as well. I strongly recommend you try this out and see if it works for you and your family.”
Game changer 5 Stars

“I’m not sure what the one star reviews are referring to. I have young kids who are NOT looking for mature content but they have stumbled across it while on YouTube. Stuff you can’t unsee. Being able to lock in Restricted Mode has brought us peace. I don’t hover anymore – which makes everyone happier!!!”
Love this app 5 Stars
by Mattluela – May 4, 2017
“The app sleeper has changed our household. Apps are automatically off from dinner time until morning. Kids get their homework done and get to bed without all the app and social media distractions. We love it.”
Game changer for our family 5 Stars
by MahoneyNC – May 2, 2017
“I installed Forcefield on my child’s device about a month ago, and it has completely changed the dynamic in our household. My son went from spending probably six hours a day on screens to one hour a day on screens doing non-school activities. Although we had some tension at the beginning, he has come around to liking force field, and even told me recently that he understands that we use Forcefield because we love him!!! He’s a 14-year-old boy! This has changed how he spends his free time — all for the better. And I don’t feel like I’m spying on him. He does however understand that his two Apple devices are privileges–subject to his parents’ supervision which we think is entirely appropriate. We are grateful to have Forcefield”
Best of the lot 5 Stars
by gadgetdawg – Apr 29, 2017
“Apple hobbles the ability of developers to do a really effective job at controlling devices. But given all the limitations, these guys do the best job of solving the problem of over use by your kids. I use this app. It has cut way down on our family drama over the phone use.”
Great app – 5 Stars

“Love the control over my son’s devices!”
Mom to two teens
by emwinn150 – Apr 29, 2017
“Don’t believe the teenage trolls giving this app low ratings! It has been a god-send at helping us get our teen back on a good path for keeping up her grades and getting into the college of her choice. It’s totally worth it to protect her right now from bad peer influences and bullying.”
It’s about time! 5 stars
by Nick12345-54321 – Mar 31, 2017
“Apple finally allows an app that has control over a device. No more jailbreaking to install iblacklist!”
Recommended. Helped me & my son sort things out – 5 Stars
by Maserati – Apr 28, 2017
“My son is 13 and was really struggling managing the time he was spending on his phone. His grades at school were suffering and it was causing behavioural issues at home. The makers of Forcefield put out a video about how to explain the app to your child and I found that advice really helpful. The app has some technical quirks here and there but the developer seems to be updating it regularly and these have mostly been resolved. Keep up the great work.”
My kids know I love them because I’m willing to protect them. 5 Stars
by SteveC858 – Apr 20, 2017
“My kids know this app is on their devices, so they are not tempted to search content that is harmful. We have a very open and transparent relationship and they know how tempting and harmful pornography is. This app helps them create patterns of avoiding harmful content. Thank God this app exists.”
App has everything I need! 5 stars
by MamaCarma73 – Apr 7, 2017
“This app is perfect for me as the mom of a young child. The best features by far are the app sleeper and the browsing controls. I can limit the amount of time my kid is staring at his screen even when I’m not around and filter out the filth so that he can still access the Internet without fear. This app addresses the growing concerns of a growing child.”
Love the app sleeper 5 Star
byNYmomfromRB – Mar 21, 2017
“Amazing to be able to keep track of what my kids are doing on their devices. Love that the apps shut down automatically at bedtime with zero discussion.”
Great App 5 Stars

“Great App for my kidsiPad!”
Only for IOS *updated review 5
by MelOb18 – Edited Mar 31, 2017
“We have four kids. Only one kid has a apple device. I need something that works & is able to work on most devices. Desperatly trying to find something that works for our family. 😒 I do however look forward to this app being available to not only IOS but Android as well. **Updated Review::: It’s sad that this app has such low ratings ONLY BECAUSE of whiney adults (or children) complaining that this app is a total invasion of children’s privacy. Stay off of apps like this then… Simple solution. Nowadays there are predators & inappropriate stuff so easily available to children.
Some children have been lured away by evil people that saught to harm them (human trafficking is in our very neighborhoods now)! We are not our children’s friend we are their parents. I’ll gladly be a bad parent in my child’s eyes then allow them to become addicted to porn or to be lured away by a predator.
A Family Rescue Remedy5 Stars
BeastFam – Mar 24, 2017
“I’ve been looking for an app like this….and some of the others fall short and aren’t the appropriate fit for what I need. I feel safer, more in control of my kids’ cyber-lives, and thankful there are apps like these that stay one step ahead for us parents. Thank you Forcefield.”
Exactly what a parent needs 5 Stars
bymelbarre – Mar 24, 2017
“You are NOT a bad parent for needing to keep your child safe. As a parent, of 14/15 yr old kids who used this, I learned my child was loaning her phone out to a friend whose parents took their phone from her because she was texting “a boy in college located in Texas”. I also learned my son had friends texting him porn pictures. Furthermore, my kids were up until 12/1am playing games on their phones. This app is used for what it is meant to do, keeping your child safe, you are NOT a bad parent.”
