Parental Control Apps that work across all device platforms


Parental Control Apps that work across all device platforms

I have a iPhone 6 Plus and my son has a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I am trying to find a way to restric the data on the Samsung phone because our data is a shared plan and I do not want him going over half of the allowed 12 GB of data on our shared data plan. So how to setup parental controls on a teens Android when I have a phone 6 Plus? Please do not tell me to go to my account under limits and permissions because all that gives me an option for is to turn the data completey off or leave it on as well as give me an option to block certain types of content. The other thing I have heard about is the Sprint Mobile Controls App which is not available on my iPhone 6 Plus. However I am looking for an app that does percisely what the Sprint Mobile Controls App does that will function on both phones. Please help me!!!

Thanks for reaching out. We understand were you are coming from. Have you tried this:

Yes I have but mine does not give the option for data limit. The only option it does give is to turn the data on or turn it off for a specific device. I am not looking to turn it off just limit it. I also had thought I had it fixed to where he could not purchase anything on the app store I had it blocked as well or so I thought. However, he was able to purchase some powerup things on the game he was playing without it asking any type of authorization. Luckily I have a good kid and he came to me before he did it.

I'm in the same situation... was there a solution to this other than to completely block data?  I'm looking to turn data off during certain hours of the day for an iPhone like you offer for Androids.
