unGlue exists to partner with parents to make life easier. Have comments or questions, let us know and we will be glad to connect.
For iOS devices such as iPhone, iPad, and iPods, you do not need to install anything. We will text the device a link that will guide you in the process of ungluing itself. Note that you will need to install the unGlue Kids App on at least one device per child.
For Android phones and tablets, you need to download the unGlue Kids App.
For home devices connected to WiFi, you only need to install the unGlue Home Monitor software (free) on a single, internet wired, desktop. Once downloaded, it will automatically detect nearby devices, such as computers, laptops, game consoles, readers, etc. that you would like to set limits for. You do NOT need to download the unGlue Home Monitor on every single device you would like it to control.
unGlue works for most Smart TVs which are connected to the internet but not standard cable television sets which are not connected to the internet.
unGlue allows you to add “guest” devices for your children’s friends, which are detected as soon as they join you WiFi network. You can set limits on these devices as well.
Once you download the app, you are guided at creating a profile for each of your children. Then you can easily set up custom schedules and Entertainment Time limits for each of you children.
Entertainment Time is a feature that bundles social media, games, videos and messaging apps into a single setting, so parents can limit the amount of addictive content their kids consume each day. Kids are notified when they are running out of Entertainment Time, so parents don’t need to act as the enforcer, or take their device away. Entertainment Time seamlessly tracks time spent across all devices and networks.
The Entertainment Time setting bundles any apps and websites that kids use to consume entertaining content, connect with friends and play games. It includes social media (Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), games (Minecraft, Pokemon Go, Overwatch, etc.), videos and streaming sites (YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Videos, etc.) and more.
Most major entertainment apps and websites are included, but if you have one you’d like us to include please email us at [email protected]. We love your feedback!
The Kid’s App is how your children use unGlue. It allows them to track the time they’ve spent online, access their schedules and provides helpful reminders when they are running out of time. Best part is that your kids can use the app to request more time by completing chores and manage their Time Bank just like they manage money.
Your kids can see their internet schedules, a countdown of how much Entertainment Time they have left and what sites they visited (and for how long).
Yes, there is a switch in each kid’s profile that allows you to restrict adult content.
unGlue only monitors devices that are assigned to a profile (which are set up for the children’s devices). We DO not monitor any other devices by default. So unless parents set limits for themselves, their devices will not be monitored.
