NOTE: There is a list of known "bugs" with our new service on some phones. We are doing our best to resolve them as best we can. See known bugs.

If you spot any more or are having problems with your device, let us know.

Unfortunately, SelfieCop cannot yet be installed onto Apple iPhones/iPads or Windows phones. A version for each of these is expected to commence shortly.

NOTE: Our aim is to ensure SelfieCop can capture *all* photos & videos taken by a child on his/her smartphone.

The truth is that the "arms race" of technology means that Messaging & Social Network apps are constantly changing & in some cases are very hard to track.

Nevertheless, we are working very hard to fill in these gaps and will keep adding to capability over time.
