  1. When we first got the app it was working great, but since the last update the only thing that works properly is the bedtime setting and time usage block. His location cuts off and only shows if he is actively using the phone instead of all the time which it used to do, which kind of defeats the purpose of me paying extra to have this feature since it doesn’t work. It’s very irritating.

  2. This app causes the phone to slow, it drains the battery WAY quicker than normal, and it doesn’t even work properly. Tracking the location doesn’t work as it should, the Wi-Fi blocking doesn’t actually block the Wi-Fi, it only slows the phone down (which is done as soon as you download the app). To top this off if you want anything to work you must restart the phone everytime something isn’t working as it should. I wouldn’t be surprised if I need a new phone after this.

  3. When it works, it’s great! But more often than not it doesn’t work. I gave up using it for my son’s iPhone. The XBOX is sporadic. I’m constantly reinstalling the app, or having to reset parental controls. So, overall I’m probably going to cancel the service and happily throw the box I bought in the garbage. It’s a shame, because the potential to help parents is so high, but the frustrating inconsistencies outweigh everything.

  4. Hard to set up. Took it to TMobile for them to set it up and they couldn’t figure it out either. Find out it’s not just me, the app is scheduled for an update on May 24th due to others unable to set up as well. As of the 27th no update. Been paying for months and never been able to use it. Thanks TMoble. I recomend getting a different app, this one is terrible.

  5. This app is the worst. Can’t even get on anything without the main screen popping up. Happened 7 times while I was typing this. The bedtime doesn’t do much, it doesn’t do anything to keep them asleep, and if someone wants to play an offline game, it won’t interfere. It’s been messing with my calls to, been talking to someone really important when it just cuts my volume and microphone. This is by far the worst parental control app I’ve experienced.

  6. Gyron dice:

    I do not recommend this app to anyone. It not only slows your connection to the internet, but when you disconnect from it, you are continually spammed with requests to connect. The app opens on its own to ask and if you don’t connect, it just does it again! Not to mention the fact that you cannot access Google! Annoying and a wast of space.

  7. A little disappointed. My daughter’s home location puts her next door. I had decided to pay for this app thinking it would work better than 360. I also liked that I could pause her internet whenever I wanted to. I was getting notifications from 360 but not Familymode. The interface could be smoother. There is not much description explaining the options. Not worth the money. Probably going to cancel and go back to 360.

  8. Worthless. This app NEVER works, and does not deliver on any of its promises. I have spent hours w/ tech support & repeatedly deleting & setting up the app again bc the VPN drops every few days. If you change the settings it doesn’t update or work at all. You can block apps, but then they just log in thru the website. This app is just trash. If it was free I would figure you get what you pay for, but for the monthly fee, it is criminal to have such a sub par product from a big provider.

  9. I’ve called T-Mobile twice, waited on near eternal hold, listened to garbled country hold music, been transferred to tech support in another country where English isn’t their strong point. More important than all that is that the interface for the app is illogical and in no way intuitive. No wonder the app’s rating is so low. Please scrap it and start fresh. Finally got a US rep but her lack of knowledge plus her heavy breathing into her microphone made me think I was receiving a crank phone call from decades past.

  10. I don’t even want to give it a star. It absolutely messes with the phone. Everything worked slow. I followed the directions and tried to troubleshoot. My son couldn’t access wifi after. The allowances are free with mode. Worthless. You aren’t able to set your own schedule and their schedule doesn’t even fit most family’s schedules. Google Family Link is free and actually works. Even set your own schedule.

  11. This app has changed fundamentally several times, but in its latest iteration it is awful. The app Performs its work by installing a pseudo VPN onto the child device and filters online content via the VPN pipeline. Here is the rub. It doesn’t control phone calls at all, and doesn’t seem to block SMS either. So the app only controls data. Plus you can circumvent it by simple restarting the phone. There is nearly a 30 second gap of unfiltered content until the VPN turns on, allowing apps to sync.

  12. causes crashes and for my phone to stop working at random, no matter what I do it doesnt seem to be able to tell the difference between whether or not to block or allow certain websites or apps, social media especially making them completely stop to function even when theyre set to be allowed, the app is fine but the VPN needs to be fixed so it doesnt cause your phone to be quite literally worthless without a hard reset or resetting it a million times a day

  13. This app worked ok before the update, the location was very intermittent. Now the location is much better, but it nolonger tracks how much online time is used, so the time limits that are set don’t work. I went into the store and had the app re-installed and checked all my settings and it didn’t help. The bed times work, and I can pause the internet. The only issue is the internet times which is one of the main reasons I have this app. Please fix!

  14. Lost the ability to delete devices! The T-Mobile FamilyMode HomeBase automatically adds every device that uses your WiFi. So every guest, every device you no longer use or own, will remain in the list of devices forever! My FamilyMode App currently has over eighty devices in it…and growing. I’ve been on with T-Mobile support with no resolution.

  15. Worked fine at the beginning, now it can’t find the location. Everything is set up correctly, it just doesn’t work. Update 10/8/22: it got better but a couple days ago,it started doing the same: loggin me off and my child also and we have to redo everything again. I think I will have to cancel subscription.

  16. This was a great tool to help both with setting limits and restrictions for my kids. 2years back, HOWEVER, over the last 2 years it has become increasingly obsolete & cumbersome to use. The updates given made the usability worse & app ineffective, including allowing the iPhone to allow not to be monitored & offload the app. The absolutely inept “pause” internet feature has no effect on newer iPhones. The bed time or time limits no longer work because the monitoring no longer actually works.

  17. App keeps saying his phone hasn’t communicated and we have to uninstall and reinstall the app for it to work. Do better T-Mobile. UPDATE: reduced to one star due to having to Uninstall and reinstall app multiple times because it blocks all internet and network access on phone for no reason (even with no limits set). These problems continue to persist and I will be looking for an alternative in the meantime.

  18. When I first purchased and installed it was great but like all the others I’ve tried, over time it went downhill. I have to constantly uninstall and reinstall because it stops working. The app now says there is a problem with the app and directly sends me to an optimal page to log in. It doesn’t deactivate the VPN from having my teen turning it off so it’s pretty useless now that she’s figured it out. PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES!!

  19. This app was fine at first, to pause the internet, apps and set limits. But my daughter is 12 and figured out how to beat the app. She has been turning off her VPN So I can’t track her location. Since turning off her VPN on her phone I noticed the apps that I wanted paused she can still access them without any problems. It was a nice run, but I think I’ll save my 10 dollars a month.

  20. Taylor Lay dice:

    Stinky app. I dont mind having a family app on my phone but this one sucks.it will occasionally turn off/disconnect from my phone completely if my phone dies and i get blamed for it or accused of doing it myself. Not only, but it will also block my connection at random times for minutes at a time even if i will still have hours left on time usage. delete ur app 🔫😐

  21. Useless I can’t believe we have to pay $10 a month for this. I’ve had it 3 days and can’t use it. It just keeps telling that there is no internet connection and can’t be used. I’ve deleted and re downloaded it twice. My internet works for all my other apps. I’ve restarted my phone. Nothing.

  22. I can’t even play my games anymore. My wifi is always so bad. Like ok you can use it to track my phone but you there’s other apps for that. And the bedtime is basically a screen time and parents can set that up differently. Our phones comes with that option. I can’t even make phone calls after my bedtime start. What happens if im kidnapped. How am supposed to call for help.

  23. Absolute garbage. It breaks the alarms you set, it slows wifi connection, spams you with ‘connecting to VPN’, opens the app constantly, and even after to deny it’s permissions it keeps asking you to turn them back on. I hate it, it’s slow, annoying, and if anything if doesn’t do what it’s meant to.

  24. IF I get logged in its only after logging in twice EVERY TIME. Not wrong password, I have to login to two different screens. I have not yet been able to locate a family member. System just spins & spins. Haven’t even gotten the Family Home thing out of box I’m so disappointed. The old app at least located my family.

  25. After not being able to “join the family” (my husband is primary), I spent 2.5 hours chatting with tech support, finally got connected to the family, only to learn that non-primary adult profiles can’t make changes to kid people time settings (bedtimes, time limits, etc.). What’s the point of having adult profiles on the app?? Missing Google Family. 🫤

  26. The WORST and most FRUSTRATING App! blocks my son’s internet 100%, prevents him from downloading any thing in the app store 100%, and prevents him making phone calls intermittently. T-Mobile couldn’t figure out why it was doing it so TMobile said to remove the product. I tried this product twice; once in March, and once in June with the exact same experience! Perhaps it’s an issue between the app and iPhones? Either way my recommendation is to figure it out for you release the app T-Mobile!

  27. Worked ok for the first day. Now I can’t open the app on my phone or my kid’s phone. It keeps crashing. And the location feature doesn’t work anymore either. And yes, the location IS turned on. I really hope this gets fixed soon because I’m paying for a service and I’m unable to use it fully.

  28. Mykenzie dice:

    slows my internet and drains my battery faster than any other app i have ever used. constantly displays that apps and websites, that i have never used, have taken hours out of my internet time. for example, the amazon website shows 5 hours used when i have never used it. never works correctly, and blocks most medical websites.

  29. So the app does work for pausing my internet access, and the bedtime and all that works, which it irks me as a kid, but the developers have done what they intended. My issue is that I have no time limits, my status is normal and I should be able to connect to the internet, play games, update stuff on my phone, ect. I can’t even do a simple google search. Sometimes this app doesn’t work properly, and that gets annoying. But it does a good job at monitoring me.

  30. downloaded app 3 weeks ago and have not been able to open it. I’ve had 4 or 5 long calls to TMobile tech support and each time they escalate the issue and call back within one week. Meanwhile I wait, without monitoring my children and really very little hope that the problem will be resolved. It’s been a disappointing and frustrating experience and I am looking for the best alternative.

  31. My experience with this app has been horrible. The restrictions that were set for me came with time limits. These time limits are off, I believe this is a major glitch with the app. When I need to use the internet for homework purposes my Wi-Fi is completely off. I have no acsses to the internet at times. When my phone shows that I do have internet access, apps that I am permitted to use, Snapchat for example, never work. It is frustrating, I feel shut out from my friends.

  32. (I’m a teenager) my mom put the app on, and it stops anything from loading like internet, instagram, music, youtube. I have to turn the wifi on and off so it disconnects for about a second so the phone can work how it should, then, AND ONLY THEN, am I able to load anything. and on top of that, it gives “connecting to vpn” all the time. if your a kid with it, restart the phone for a brief 1-2 min period of actuall use. and the BEST part is I get 1 hour of screen time. cant update any apps too.

  33. There used to be a time when T-Mobile allowed you to shut off everything except for calling and texting on a phone. That’s all I really want. They took that option away and now they have this family mode thing that really doesn’t work especially on iPhones. Sometimes newer is not better. Just bring back the old option please.

  34. the app has issues. this was not tested enough before rolling it out. if your child has an app open on their phone when bedtime, offtime or pause is enabled they are still able to use it. they actually have to click on the notification from family mode for the change to occur. this is a MAJOR FLAW! no child is going to so that and if they do, they will only do it once when they figure out that is how the family mode is enabled. THIS NEEDS TO BE AN AUTOMACTIC SETTING. Please address this issue!!

  35. Using this as a child on the account. Once installed, this app shut down everything on my phone whether my parents had my phone paused or shut off or not. My parents and I had no idea what to do and the app wouldn’t allow anyone to disable or uninstall it. I have to write this from a computer. I can’t access the internet, use anything that requires WiFi, and my phone slowed to a crawl after this app was installed even though it once ran perfectly. DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!

  36. This app is massively underdeveloped: my phone keeps not being able to connect to FamilyMode, for whatever unidentifiable reason, which is dangerous, given that we wanted to use it not only to monitor and control our son’s phone usage but also to locate him with the GPS function in case of emergencies. Also, that GPS mode is inaccurate on the few occasions it actually works – usually after LONG periods of not locating that other device. Forget real-time GPSing, which is pathetic and embarrassing, rendering the app practically useless. Life360 is WAY better. Control of apps and www surfing is extremely shallow and minimal, in no way suitable to monitor a young teen. It lacks a high-level, all-overruling parental login for example per non-deletable fingerprint (really?! One would think that’s the VERY first feature to come up with). It lacks a feature go practically shut down all purchase options for anything (idea: allow purchase by parental fingerprint confirmation on parent phone). The VPN can be deactivated by the child. And if the parent device can’t connect to the app and one tries trouble shooting it is a) impossible to uninstall the app on the kids phone (again: how about a parental admin login?!) and b) if one deletes the kids device from the parental app in an attempt to reinstall and fix the kids phone is basically locked in and can only be rescued in Safe Mode. We based our decision to give our son a phone with t- mobile on the availability of this app. I have not used the competitor’s apps but this one here is NOT good and I regret my decision. 1 star, because I can’t give zero. ALL issues mentioned above should be no challenge to program. Why is this not the case?

  37. Ridiculous. Everytime I set up the app to use it, I have problems with Wi-Fi and Mobile Data. Certain pages will not load, and it reduces me to only have access to phone calls and texts. I seriously hate this app and it’s functions.

  38. Complete waste of money. It constantly shuts off / logs off for no apparent reason. The location feature rarely works (we installed Life 360 as a replacement). While it blocks the internet, the kids can still text and use most apps after hours. Not sure who designed this, but guessing not a parent.

  39. It utterly kills my cellular usage, as well as costs an extra ten dollars per month. As well, it doesn’t even fully work, as I myself have found out that the bedtime function literally does nothing. As well, whenever I press deactivate on the app store, it gives me a pop-up about how it needs to be deactivated before being uninstalled, and then proceeds to do nothing. It has 2/5 stars for a reason, and that reason is because so many obsessive parents gave enough five stars for it not to be 1/5.

  40. Doesn’t have specific app blocking as an overarching control, just ‘off times’ so that app blocking has to be repeated for all off times. BIG ANNOYING PROBLEM: you have to reenter security questions or texted codes many times each day to use the parent version. WHY? It’s my phone, my pin, my fingerprint. This isn’t a bank account app. So yeah, it has it’s own pin code of you want to use it, but doing so does not eliminate the ANNOYING PROBLEM of having to answer questions or get texted codes.
