“I do enjoy PhoneSheriff, though some of its functions are still confusing to me. The app helps me take care of my children, as I work most of my daytime. With PhoneSheriff I know where my girls are, what they do and how much time they usually use their smartphones.”
Samantha D. (San-Francisco, CA)
“This app helps me control my employees, especially when I’m out of office. I can see if they use their cell phones in an appropriate way and not spend too much time for their personal affairs. I can control business information flow and prevent leak of data.”
Denis K. (Missoual, MT)
“PhoneSheriff is not the best solution for mobile monitoring, despite all the flattering phonesheriff reviews. I tested about ten similar apps and this one was among those I wouldn’t vote for. There are too many features to be improved and too many questions appear, when working with it.”
Jessica O. (Minneapolis, MN)
