The Verizon Smart Family App enables you to:



Monitor your child’s phone usage and activity with features that allow you to keep an eye on everything from texts and call history to their device’s battery life.



Childproof your internet with blocking and unblocking features that enable you to filter social media, messaging, gaming apps and websites until you decide your kids are ready.



Set smarter boundaries when needed by instantly pausing Internet or limiting access to calls, texts and data during school hours, bedtime or dinner time. You can also set purchase limits for apps, games and music.



Set alerts to track your family members’ device locations or check the real-time device map at your convenience, so you can rest easy knowing where your loved ones are at any time.



Whether your family members are at home or on the go, get the peace of mind of knowing their online experience is safe with Verizon Smart Family.
