Mobicip vs Circle

Tired of parental controls that work most of the time, under certain conditions, on certain types of devices, at certain places? Befuddled by the nuance that screen time without the internet is not considered screen time? Choose a parental control app that you can trust to work on devices and computers that you set up on, at home, at school, at the library, anywhere, anytime.

  • I was doing research for a presentation to parents about Internet Safety and their kids and saw your product. I tried and liked Mobicip. Thank you for developing and supporting such a critical application for concerned parents everywhere!!

  • Mobicip has been wonderful. I am a children's pastor and a principal, and I recommend your service to people all the time. Thank you for all you do! Thanks for helping to keep our kids safe.

  • Mobicip has been a great help and I would like to thank your team for all the help they have given me. I find that people are very quick to complain and slow to send positive comments into companies that are doing a good job. I foster two teenage lads and they both have mobile phones and other devices. Mobicip has enabled me to manage the sites the lads visit and the content they view. I had Mobicip up and running in no time and I felt very confident that the lads were safe when using their mobile devices. I found Mobicip very easy to use and the staff team very helpful and friendly. When it comes to internet safety I found Mobicip to be a life saver. I have recommended Mobicip to all of my friends and workmates.
