Get Peace of Mind With The OurPact Parental Control App

As a parent, I want to make sure both of my kid’s time on the internet is put to good use but I also want to restrict what they have access to and set a time limit. With OurPact, I am able to do all of that plus more at a fraction of the cost compared to other parental control apps.

OurPact empowers parents to guide their children through the balanced use of technology, helping them learn healthy digital habits.  

OurPact is the #1 parental control and family locator app that works with and across iOS and Android devices. With OurPact, parents have the ability to schedule screen time, manually block & grant access to the internet & apps, establish geo-fences and receive alerts when children deviate outside of the established areas.

Simple To Use

OurPact is very user-friendly. From the moment I downloaded it, I had no problems setting it up. It was actually a rather quick process. After signing up, I was then prompted to install OurPact Jr. on my daughter’s device. After doing that, it showed me step by step everything I needed to do to ensure that she would not be able to uninstall it from her device and so I could have access to what she’s doing.


OurPact has 99.9% uptime performance and responsive control. Since installing it and using it, I have seen no disconnects or any type of problem with it. It has stayed true to its 99.9% uptime on my end and I am very happy about that.


OurPact is able to be used on both iOS and Android. It can also be used on any network. You also have profile management which allows you to create a profile for each child in the family. You can set schedules or manually make adjustments as needed.

With flexibility also comes affordability.

I have not needed to reach out to customer support but it’s nice knowing that they are available 7 days a week. Should any issues arise, I will definitely reach out to them.


Schedule Blocks – This allows you to prevent the device from being used at the designated times you choose. You can schedule screen time according to your child’s daily routine. Parents can create schedules for dinnertime, bedtime, family time and more. With my daughter, her only current schedule block is bedtime.

Block & Grant – This allows you to have control over which apps can be accessed or blocked from being used. If you don’t want any social media apps to be used, all it takes is one simple click. I love that about this app.

App Rules – Allow, schedule, and block specific apps. Restrict distracting apps while always ensuring access to the most beneficial apps.

Allowance – Set healthy screen time limits for your kids to budget throughout the day. For right now, I have it set to 2 hours during the week and 4 hours during the weekends.

Family Locator – OurPact’s family locator lets parents quickly locate family members and devices. Parents can also receive instant location alerts using OurPact Places. This is also a great feature to have on your child’s device should they lose it or if it’s ever stolen.

Places – Created Places in the OurPact Family Locator to receive instant alerts when your kids arrive at or leave, any set location: school, home, or even Grandma’s house!

Block Texting – Block SMS, texting, iMessage and more on iOS and Android devices. My youngest one doesn’t text but this is a great feature to have with a teenager in the house.

 Web Filter – With OurPact, parents have the ability to instantly block inappropriate content on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch.


My Overall Thoughts

Overall, I think this is a pretty awesome parental control app. It’s simple to use, the user face itself is clean and the features are worth it, especially with both paid subscription tiers. My only two issues with the app as of right now is not being able to see any sort of history of what apps my kiddo is using or what she has installed and that Google devices don’t have true access to the Adult Content block feature. Hopefully, there is an update in the future for these two types of features.

I look forward to continuing to use the app and hope you find all of the information provided here useful. If you still aren’t convinced, consider signing up for the 1-week free trial. I hope this app helps give you some peace of mind when it comes to your children are using their devices. It’s a crazy world out there but we as parents still have the power over what our kiddos are exposed to online. We just have to take the initiative.
