Apps Insights

As Parents, we often don't know the apps our Child's generation uses. The Connect App provides Parents with a quick reference to the popular apps, especially helping Parents identify apps not appropriate for your Child's age group.

From a Parent's phone or tablet:

  1. In Family, tap on your Child's icon
  2. Go down the screen
  3. Tap on Apps
  4. Tap on an App you want to know more about
  5. Read the Cyber Expert Advice
    Go down to Known Risks
  6. Tap + 10 more 
    Your web browser will open with detailed Cyber Expert recommendations

New apps are available every day. If you find an app needs to be reviewed, tap the REQUEST REVIEW button (see below) or use our online chat. You can reach our online chat from Settings > Support centre > Chat with us online > GO.

Review Cyber Expert Advice

  2. Listen to the Cyber Expert talk about the app
  3. See more detailed ratings of the risks
    Read what parents need to know beneath the ratings
