I am the parent. I put the family safe on my kids’ PCs. The program did nothing but give us headaches for 2 days before I uninstalled it. The only thing that changed was this program.On one computer the headphone jack stopped working and on the other it messed up screen settings. It also had SO MUCH LAG on both computers it was like using a 1985 word processor. I spent 30 minutes uninstalling this program from 2 PCs. I had to do the “allow uninstall” link 5 or 6 times on each system before it finally accepted. Even after uninstalling, the headphone jack still didn’t work until I did a full factory reset. Gigantic waste of time in an otherwise ok lineup of security software.
The app never works it’s always turning off the phone when it’s not supposed to and the quality is teeeible.
We had gotten this app because my brother and sister were addicted to their devices. After the 30 day trial we were unable to take the app off of their devices. We had to actually reset them and lost a lot of their things. They lost all their Minecraft worlds and honestly I am so mad at this company. I will never get anything of this mcafee company. I HATE IT. Do not get this if you do not want it to take over your child’s device forever.
The app never works it’s always turning off the phone when it’s not supposed to and the quality is terrible. It has now given my phone a virus so then my phone keeps shutting off
Worst app ever broke my phone.
