How FamiSafe Works

The first step in incorporating FamiSafe into your device is registering an account with your phone or your kid’s phone. You only need one account to get registered on both the devices. After registration, you can install it on both, your phone and your kid’s device. You can download the application on all kinds of smartphones whether they are powered by Android or iOS from their respective online applications’ stores. All you have to do is search for the application in the store and you will find it.

Next, you will have to set up the application on both devices. Setting up FamiSafe is a bit different for iOS-powered and Android-powered phones. Differences lie in the installation of the Application settings and allotment of necessary permission.

After that, you will have to grant FamiSafe the needed permissions to work on your devices.

For Android:  Android users will also have to log in to the account on their child’s device, choose the identity as ‘kid,’ and provide the name and age details.
