How Much is FamiSafe?

Part of subscribing to the FamiSafe parental control Android app is choosing the plan that works best for you.

Once you sign up the app is yours to keep. Moreover, you get free updates in the future and support services as well. All the features we mentioned, including SMS detection, cell location tracker, screen time control and web content filtering are fully unlocked.

Managing the devices under the parental control iPad, iPhone, Android phone and tablet is a matter of accessing the dashboard and going to the device you want to view. The interface is clean, simple and easy to understand.

Wondershare offers a monthly, quarterly and annual subscription for $9.99, $19.99 and $59.99, respectively. You get bigger discounts on longer terms and manage more devices as well.

Screen time

Limiting screen time is essential for those who want their children to explore other activities, including extracurricular activities, sports, and non-digital hobbies. With the FamiSafe app you can temporarily lock the device when they need to focus on more important things. You can set a smart schedule based on where your child is or current activity, and even add a “reward” for doing well in school or completing chores around the house.

Family locator

Teens and young adults will often have their smartphone close at hand throughout the day. You can still track their whereabouts with the Family Locator feature and use geofencing and real-time tracking to see where they are.

Web content

The World Wide Web is a vast resource for homework and school research, but there are websites that can be dangerous or age-inappropriate for children.

The parental control application Famisafe gives you the ability to block these websites and even view deleted browser histories.

Parent alerts

FamiSafe continues to work even when you are busy with other things. You can receive important alerts about red flags, including explicit text, suspicious photos, and disturbing content on social media.

Cyberbullying detection

Often difficult to detect, cyberbullying can go undetected until it gets out of control. FamiSafe can detect threats, embarrassing or intimidating acts through its robust 24/7 cyberbullying feature on social media. Parents can view, search and track their children’s posts and messages and receive alerts when certain words are seen or used. You can add your own keywords and start monitoring your child’s social media including Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, and more.
