To uninstall the Family Safety app from your child’s device, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign out from your child’s account in the Family Safety app (tap on the app’s menu button > your child’s name > Sign out)

  2. Depending on your child’s age, organizer approval to sign out may be required (Remove members or leave your family goup)

    Note: The exact menu names and steps may differ slightly depending on the make, model, and Android version of each device used.  You could also try to search for “Device admin” on your Android settings.

  4. Now the app can be uninstalled from Android.
