One Click Functionality
Our appblocker and gameblocker features are two of the most used and popular features for parents. Both appblocker and gameblocker are available with all our premium subscriptions. With a simple click, the parent can quickly block all internet functionality from the app or game that is on our current list. Netsanity has a list of over 50 apps and games that have been thoroughly researched and profiled.
Block what you want
Our list of apps and games is based on parents requests, popularity of use by kids and teens, along with our own exhaustive research. One of the revolutionary features of appblocker and gameblocker is that you do not need to remove the apps from your child’s device. For instance, you may allow your teen to use Instagram. However you want to limit its use and occasionally want to block Instagram. With appblocker, you simply click the icon remotely from any browser and Instagram will not function.

Does appblocker hide any apps?
No! Netsanity has a very unique way that we block apps. On Apple, the apps can be opened but their
functionality is disabled. For Samsung, the apps when clicked are disabled.
Do I need to have my child device when I block their apps?
No – all control is done remotely via your parental dashboard.
Can I monitor content within the apps you block? Can I read their snapchats, for example?
Netsanity has no control nor access to third party apps. There is no way for us to “break into” some other app and extract information. That is not currently a technology that is possible.
Can I block specific apps on iPhone?
Yes, the apps that are profiled in our appblocker tool are fair game! Learn how to block specific apps by watching our YouTube video or reading our support docs.
