According to the website and app store description, monitoring is not supported on IOS - http://family.intelsecurity.com/#/
as for the explicit content - if it's a web page check the category at http://trustedsource.org/en/feedback/url?action=checksingle
Maybe our system has an incorrect categorization for that site.
There are some differences in terms of features that are working between the different operating systems. I will try and shed some light about what works for a child on an iOS device:
What Safe Family does for a child's iOS device:
1.) Location works (as you noted), so you will be able to see your family on a map, kid can check in or parent can set up a Place (aka geofence)
2.) Application hiding/blocking for iOS - parent can set an application policy that will hide applications on the child's iOS device. The policy is based on the age rating that is provided in the Apple App Store. We also allow a parent to hide/show the App Store to prevent new apps from being installed as well as blocking in-app purchases to prevent accidental charges to your itunes account.
What Safe Family doesn't do (yet):
1.) web filtering - there isn't any web filtering that Safe Family provides for iOS devices today, you will still have to rely on the "Restrictions" setting in iOS to turn on the web filtering that Apple provides. That filtering is separate from what is being provided by Safe Family.
2.) time controls - the time controls feature offered by Safe Family currently only applies to Android and Windows
3.) Activity Tab - We don't show any website or application activity in the Activity tab
We are working on some enhancements that will improve the messaging of these features and capabilities to parents, so please stay tuned.
If you have any other questions or feedback, please let us know.
Thanks for the answers!
I now understand that some features are missing. Because it was a version >= 1 I thought the basic features, that are advertised and visible, would be working.
I think it is okay in principle.
But this is a very bad user experience! Users can configure those features, but there is no hint that they are not working. Users will spend time to get it working and will give up frustrated. This will probably generate a lot of 1 star ratings and angry comments.
The app should be marked as Alpha/Beta or shouldn't be release in the iOS app store at all, as long as those features are not implemented.
