“Nice tool to prevent your kids from internet danger. There are so many threats on the web and children have free access to all of it. I use Curbi as I don’t want my two sons to see porn pictures and videos, alcohol ads, drug addicts etc.”

“I used trial version and wasn’t satisfied enough to buy subscription. My husband also said there were many much advanced applications like Curbi. Moreover, they can provide more sophisticated monitoring for parents. So we refused from using this one.”
Johan L. (Albany, New York)
“I tried Curbi as my first parental control app. First, I thought it was good enough, but then I tried another one and realized that this app doesn’t provide enough security for my kids, even online. Many of them also allow you to monitor cell phones – this one does not. So, it is not my choice.”
