    Great article! Every app on this list does a good job for its specific task – the main issue with the ones we tried (Kasperski and Symantec) was they they were memory hogs and our phones were working at a snails pace not to mention that the xxx stuff was getting through. We went with the Safe Lagoon parental control app finally. Safe Lagoon, which was not reviewed here has all the listed features in this article into one app for me and my children (not just a web portal) which very convenient for us to see what’s going on from my Samsung with their app installed and running in Parent Mode.
    The Safe Lagoon Killer feature: IM monitoring (Whatsapp, Viber, etc) I have not seen that on any other parental control solution. Internet filtering is soild and app schedules are really easy and useful too – again, I can change the settings on my son’s phone direct from the Parental app on my phone. Awesome.
    They have an iOS app too – I’m waiting for my wife to get me an iphone and will let you know 🙂

  • TakeItBack

    To all those parents who would like to restrict their kids from extended device usage, TakeitBack is a perfect tool. Currently available on Android devices only.

  • Any idea for HCL ME Tablet. while try to install Kids Place – Parental Control, it won’t install.

    Kind Regards

    The list would not be complete without one of the best parental control apps for Android: Screentime Ninja:


    This revolutionary app uses the tremendous and under-used motivational kid’s force to play in order to hone his/her math skills. The device is blocked after a pre-set amount of time and the kid can earn more time only by solving a few math problems!
