SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2020

FamiSafe

FamiSafe is an app that offers a host of valuable features for families with multiple devices. Testers called it a “must-have” for parents who feel a bit uneasy about their kids or teenagers having phones. There are convenient and easy-to-use ways to monitor activities like detecting bullying behavior, unusual social media activities, suspicious photos, and more. When guidelines you set up are breached, you will be notified on your phone. You can also set rules for phone usage, including screen time reports, and you can block web sites either by name or by category. The site blocker was a particular favorite feature for parents since it gave them access to their child’s browser history, so you know exactly what sites your kids have visited. Then, using the web filter, you can choose to block or set a schedule giving you the power to decide when and where to prevent access to sites. Overall, this isn’t only a tool that parents can use to control their kids’ devices, but it is a great teaching tool for families to use together to discuss boundaries, dangers, and guidelines. This app is timely, relevant, and a must-have for parents with any-age kids who have any device with online access. Finally, it is easy to download, works on various platforms, and the price was viewed as reasonable considering all the app offers.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

SPRING '23

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
