How To Setup Mobicip in Child Mode on Android Devices?

Overview

This article shows you how to setup Mobicip in Child mode on your Child’s Android Smartphone or Tablet

Summary: Download Mobicip from Google Play, select Child as the primary user, and login using your Mobicip account.

Before you Begin

Using the Mobicip app on your child's device, you can 

  • Set up Mobicip parental controls and assign the filtering settings you customized for your child who will primarily use the device 
  • While you will be able to purchase a Mobicip subscription, we recommend using the parent device to purchase the subscription and set up your account. This is to prevent the subscription from being tied to your child's Play Store account in case they have a separate account and also from possible cancellation of the subscription. 

Please note that 

  • Mobicip Parental Controls work only by installing the Mobicip app on your Child's device. Monitoring won't start until the Mobicip app is installed on your child's device.
  • You need to have access to your children's device so that you can install Mobicip on their device and begin monitoring. Please ensure adding each of your children separately while setting up the Parent app so you can monitor their activities accurately.
  • Please refer to this article on how to set up notifications and this article will answer any questions you may have about your child uninstalling the app. 

Step-by-step 

Open the Mobicip App in Parent mode on your phone (or sign into the Mobicip Portal online). Flip through the dashboard until you see a QR code.
