Major version of Boomerang Parental Control now available!

Boomerang v4.55 availability

Here are highlights of our newest version of Boomerang

Onboarding Wizard improvements
  • No limits on the Start and End Times for Scheduled Screen Time. You can also customize your child’s screen time schedule after onboarding by logging in to our web dashboard.
  • Redesigned Always Allowed: select or search for apps already installed on your child’s device with our new select screen. You can do the same for contacts already on the device if it’s a smartphone plus add any websites that you feel are good for your child to access anytime. Your selections here will function even when screen time is up!

Other improvements
  • Non-Samsung device security improvements:
    • Prevent date/time changes
    • Cannot disable our app with Android 5.x’s Active Apps system manager
    • Optional: “Require password for uninstallation”
  • We protect the Accessibility permission from being toggled off 
  • Improved Call Blocking: Unknown numbers do not stand a chance as we now block calls lightning fast.
  • Better info to Child (and parent): We now present the name of the app when it’s blocked
YouTube App viewing history – prototype feature!
  • Looking for feedback on this feature – History is currently being listed in the web dashboard under the Browsing tap and youtube.com site. We plan to make this it’s own tab.
