There are two ways Family Zone allows parents to block apps.
One is to block an entire category of app - social media, or games, for example. The other is to block individual apps - Snapchat, say - while allowing others in the category (Facebook, for example).
For certain age groups, some categories are blocked automatically. Users under age 13, for example, are blocked by default from accessing social media apps.
Parents may choose to change blocked app settings temporarily or permanently.

“You guys deserve medals! We have got our son back from a downward spiral. My son is actually doing his homework now. We can’t thank you enough, this is what technology should be used for - to benefit the entire family. A truly amazing transformation. You have my complete admiration.”
