What is Qustodio?

Qustodio is a parental control solution to make it easier to keep your kids safe online and develop healthy digital habits. It enables you to supervise their device use and help them get screen time balance so you can help your kids be safer - and smarter - with their phones and computers.

We also know that it can be tough to keep up with digital trends as a busy parent, so we’re here to help with that too. Our research-backed knowledge and advice makes it easier for you to navigate the digital world with your kids.



Why use Qustodio?

Kids’ screen time is increasing - causing sleep problems, mental health issues, the risks of inappropriate content, and also distraction from school. Every child has unique needs when it comes to using tech, but in general, more time online exposes them to more risks. Qustodio has the customizable tools needed to help in every situation. You can use Qustodio to schedule screen-free time before bed, so your kids can avoid sleep-disrupting blue light or block apps that they use excessively; you can monitor YouTube viewing, filter browser results, or simply supervise how your kids use their device.

Qustodio protects a broad range of platforms and you can monitor your kids’ devices from anywhere, using the Parents App on your own smartphone or the Family Portal on the web.
