After months and month of testing and preparation, we are finally ready to take the wraps off something new! This new addition to the curbi family is something we've had requested since we originally launched curbi for iOS almost two years ago.
Say hello to curbi for Android!
curbi for Android supports any Android devices running KitKat (4.4) or Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1). To find out which version you have, go to Settings > About device.
The great thing for existing curbi customers is that you can add your Android devices for no additional change. It's included with your curbi subscription.
curbi for Android has similar features to the iOS version, but with some great enhancements. curbi for Android supports device quotas. For example, you can allow your child to have 1 hour of active device time per day during the week and 2 hours on the weekends. When the quota is reached, the device will no longer allow apps to launch.
Like the iOS version, curbi for Android blocks adult content and viruses/spyware by default. You can also set control for games, social media, tv/video, music, general time wasting sites, drugs/alcohol, guns, sex related sites, and more. You can see a list of installed applications while also disabling any app right from the curbi parent app on your device (or website). You will also be able to track app usage to see which apps are being used the majority of the time.
If you'd like to give it a try, just visit the enrollment page on the device you wish to manage.
If you have friends who will be interested in this, be sure to let them know that all new accounts get a 14 day Free Trial.
