Help and Support:

Kidslox requires an internet connection to operate.
When apps are blocked their icons are removed from the home screen. Due to current iOS limitations, when you unblock them the icons will return to the home screen in alphabetical order and outside of any folders.
We’ve created a workaround to solve this issue which you will be prompted to install when you add your device to Kidslox.
Finally, if a device has already been set up with an education or business MDM profile (Mobile Device Management) then you will not be able to add Kidslox unless you remove the original profile.
Compatibility: Requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
