With the holidays approaching and the promise of fancy new tech under the tree I’ve been searching for some kind of reliable, all in one software that can help me keep my kids safe and control their screen time while being user friendly and flexible, so that I can customize control for all three of my boys – giving more freedom to my oldest and locking down my five year old’s iPad to prevent him from watching anymore of those Five Nights at Freddy’s videos.
I’ve tried a few products before, but they’ve either been too complicated or too expensive. I have three kids, each with their own tablets, laptops and before I know it – phones. When I came across Familoop it really caught me eye for two reasons: It has all the features I want in one single program, and it is inexpensive. So I did a little more research and now that I’m convinced Familoop is the solution for us. Sharing it here was a must for me because I know we are far from the only parents searching for a safe way to raise kids who are so immersed in technology – and since the holidays are approaching, what better way to kick off the gift giving season than a giveaway!

Familoop monitors and protects your children in a number of ways, and displays data and setting in an easy to view and understand format with smart monitoring software, a real time online dashboard, suspicious activity alerts, device usage history and more.
The first feature of Familoop that I love is the web content filter. This feature blocks inappropriate websites and filters out web results, stopping your children from being able to access unwanted content from the get go. This feature also protects your personal information and allows you to view web history, even when incognito mode is disabled (a neat feature for older kids who think anonymous browsing will keep parents in the dark).
Next Familoop works to protect your child on social media. Working with 15+ social networks, Familoop monitors profiles, chat converations, tweets and messages and alerts you to inappropriate content or cyber bullying. This is a particularly useful feature as these 51 critical cyber bullying statistics show just how often cyber bullying occurs.
Next Familoop allows you to control screen time and apps by enforcing parental controls, allowing you to block apps by age rating and impose bedtime, screen time and school time restrictions on each device.
If your child already has a cellphone Familoop has protection for your mobile device too. See your child’s contacts and call history, manage text messages, emails and skype conversations all from one place.
And finally Familoop can work with your device’s built in GPS to monitor your child’s whereabouts, set safe zones or alert you when your child enters a dangerous area.
From toddlers to pre-teens, Familoop has all the bases covered. If you’re interested in Familoop you can try it free for 10 days to see how well it works for your family. After that pricing is $39.99 a year (or $4.99 monthly) for up to three devices and $69.99 a year (or $9.99 monthly) for up to 10 devices.
