What happened to the Funamo Accountability app? Want to download it and it seems to have dissapeared.
Sorry for the inconvenience. We are having some issues with Google listing for Funamo Accountability and we are working with Google to resolve it. In the mean time, please send us a private message and we can email the app to you.
could you offer the direct link too?
I'm guessing that this app is in the store so that you can install it if there is an issue with their Google Apps
So: Funamo Parental Controls can be downloaded and if it's not available just download the Funamo Accountability App instead.
I was redoing a child phone and used that Funamo Accountability instead (Since I couldn't find FPC app) it works just fine. It appears as if my same license worked too since i was instlaling in on the same device.
I'm not positive about this but the app does say "Licensed" at the top and i didn't buy a new license. i just installed it onto the same device and also used the same First and Last name of the user.
BTW i reviewed a bunch of other parental control apps in the mean time and really didn't find one as good as Funamo. they do look and feel differently but Funamo is by far the best value.
You should just restrict the kids from installing any Application killer apps and restrict them from Settings. Restricting settings will make it difficult for them to connect to a new WiFi access point so you should install an app which allows to connect to wifi without going into settings. I'm using "WiFi Connection Manager" from crowdin.net
The other way to keep kids from disabling is to tell them that if they do, they will get their phone taken away or wiped the phone. you can check if they are disabling the phone by looking for large time slots in the reports where they are not on their favorite messaging apps. when they are not on the apps that likely means that Funamo is not reporting. My child had funamo turned off by killing the app in settings and then reporting was off for days. i could see this in the funamo "History" reports. I took his phone away, had them backup any important photos and then wiped the phone. they will have to reset the phone and re-install everything themselves and that takes a while and is a deterrent. also i locked settings and will not be approving any Task manager apps or any other apps like Avast virus protection where you can disable apps.
i was real clear with my child that if they did this again, they would loose the phone and I would wipe it and not approve any of their apps for a few weeks. they could then only use the phone as a basic phone. if that doesn't work, they get a flip phone.
I do love them very much and will be as supportive and a good parent as possible.
