What's New

Release includes bug fixes plus improved pairing between the parent and child phones for those using the Secure Family App for location tracking only. A VPN will not be automatically installed for location tracking alone. VPN will be required for parental controls features such as pause internet or content filtering. We encourage location only customers to install the Secure Family Companion App on their child’s phone and pair using this release for improved location accuracy. Also includes icons on the Map indicating use of cell towers for network location (lower accuracy) or GPS (higher accuracy). We continue to listen to our valued customers and work to improve your experience.
