Set weekday and weekend schedules limiting access on your child’s phone from your phone (tablets work too!) It’s simple and it matters!
Establish healthy sleep habits for your children. Schedule shutdown times to give you peace of mind that your child is getting uninterrupted sleep.
Allocate time limits on your Android device so as to teach children how to prioritize ‘free time” on their phones. Apps will shut down under your authority. Phone remains accessible for emergencies.
Encouraged Apps feature allows apps to not count down time when they are used by your child. For education, reading, or podcasts, as the parent, you can make these available with no shutoff time.
Our Parent Mode provides an easy Time-Out setting. When needed, parents can pause a child’s device use or even extend access time. It’s FREE!
Smartphones have opened up a new world in how our kids communicate – kids do not carry quarters to make calls at the local payphone anymore! Expressing themselves via text, images and video also opens up challenges where cyberbullying and self harm can be amplified. We have the basics covered: text message logging, location tracking and control who can call – parents are always allowed.
❗️Our Call and Text monitoring features are only available for Android smartphones and can be downloaded here.
Android only. Get detailed text logs from your child’s Android phone. Get notified when inappropriate words (keyword detection can be customized) or unknown numbers are detected. Optionally, enable the collection of all text message content. Available here.
Android only. Allow calls only from their saved contacts. All other numbers get blocked instantly and sent to voicemail, including those marketing calls. Parents can also review their child’s Android phone logs anytime from their Android or iOS device via our Parent Mode reports.
Your child’s device travels with them. You depend on it for communication. So why not leverage it to get alerts and updates on your child’s whereabouts via their mobile device. Set to report in automatically but you can make it faster or ask for a manual refresh. An active internet connection is required.
Creating a group to pair all family devices is simple. Just use one of your parent emails and that is now your group name. No need to create a new email account for your child in order to monitor their activities. Follow our setup steps and pair all devices with your email and password.
Stay in the know and approve or block new apps when they are installed on your child’s Android device. Start conversations about your child’s interest in certain apps and how they heard about them.
Android only. Boomerang Parental Control blocks new app installs on your child’s device. You get notified of the new app installs and can keep them blocked or approve them from your iPhone or Android parent device.

This app has enabled me to monitor my son after discovering that he was talking to someone in south africa and was sending inappropriate videos and pictures to a woman. We suspect he was being groomed. It had been mentioned to him that he could fly to FL to meet her. This app allowed me to encourage him to use the phone differently or to impose restrictions.
So far....so good. Brings peace of mind. So thankful for those who developed this Ap. The admin are thorough and fast in responding to any issues or questions I've had. I highly recommend Boomerang Parental Controls app.
