Why Choose Qustodio Premium?

Choose Qustodio Premium to get more information and more control.

The sooner you start using Qustodio Premium, the sooner you’ll get the benefit of understanding your child’s web use, computer use, and social media access better. Also, the sooner you’ll get more control over app and application use, time limits, and Facebook use across all devices.

Block apps and applications on all devices

Qustodio Premium lets you block applications and apps on any device with Qustodio installed. Without this protection, your child might see confidential information. Also, he or she could accidentally change or delete an important document.

Time limits for each device with Multiple Device Scheduler

When you upgrade to Qustodio Premium, the Qustodio Family Portal includes the Multiple Device Scheduler. The Multiple Device Scheduler lets you limit the amount of time your child can use a particular device, such as a specific Mac or an Android mobile phone.

In-depth monitoring with Qustodio Advanced Facebook Monitoring

This plug-in actually plugs into your child’s Facebook account. Once it’s installed, you get more in-depth reporting whenever your child uses Facebook – even on devices that don’t have Qustodio installed.

Monitor your child’s Location on a map

Qustodio’s location monitoring feature tracks your child’s location in real time, ensuring that you’re always aware of his/her whereabouts, no matter what time of day or night.

Monitor your child’s Calls and Text Messaging

With Qustodio Premium, you can see who your child talks to via phone and SMS text messages. You can also view how much time was spent on calls and how many texts were exchanged.

Report on 30 days’ usage rather than just seven

The Qustodio Family Portal features attractive reports. With Qustodio Premium, they include 30 days’ usage rather than just seven.
