Pros
Their customer support and outreach has been phenemenal. Not only does the GoGuardian team respond to my emails and requests, but they are happy to reach out for feedback and ideas for improvement.
I enjoy the ease of access and the ability to use the software with the huge community for support.
It is also very helpful that I can see their screen and can help them when they are having issues with a site.
Cons
But he can watch mindnumbing violence provoking irrational anger creating minecraft videos on you tube. And did I say theyve stopped me from monitoring that activity as his mother.
Violating our privacy rights and disabling my childs education and mental wellbeing.
The fees to maintain our accounts are more than we expected and it's hard to negotiate once you already have the tool set up.

Top of the Line Chromebook Monitoring Solution

Reviewed 3 years ago

We have had great success in our 1:1 program with GoGuardian. We have been able to reach out to families when a child was endangered, and our staff is feeling very comfortable using devices in the classroom.

Pros

GoGuardian provides many different features that make implementing a 1:1 Chromebook program fairly easy. The filtering solution is fairly quick and easy to learn and can work off-site. They also have Smart Alerts which notifies us when a student is doing something that could cause self-harm or is looking at pornography. Lastly, the teacher portal allows teachers to monitor and easily step in to help students stay engaged.

Cons

The teacher side of things could use some improvements in the way that it interacts with the Chromebooks, although this might require a different type of installation. It would be great to get a constant live snapshot of Chromebook devices rather than just the current tab.

Great product!

Reviewed 3 years ago

GoGuardian Teacher has been a great product and is loved by our teachers. They can choose to monitor or restrict Chromebooks. We use GoGuardian Admin to monitor Smart Alerts and track lost Chromebooks.

Pros

GoGuardian gives you the ability to easily manage your Chromebooks in the classroom. It allows our teachers the freedom to teach instead of monitoring devices.

Cons

There is not much to dislike. They recently added a feature to allow Admins to log in as teachers to troubleshoot issues. That was a previous complaint that has now been addressed.

violating our privacy rights and disabling my childs education and mental wellbeing

Reviewed 2 years ago

They have already been sued by the aclu and others for privacy violations, they need to quit messing with our children.

Pros

Nothing is good about this program or company

Cons

I dont appreciate being forced into educating my child via a laptop that has completely stopped him from all education. They have also given themselves the right to supersede my rights to control what my child views and how easily he does so. Hes blocked from teachers videos and links for classwork and gmail for account verifications or classwork docs. He cant print to an outside printer or send to outside printers. but he can watch mindnumbing violence provoking irrational anger creating minecraft videos on you tube. And did I say theyve stopped me from monitoring that activity as his mother?

Go Guardian one stop shop

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I appreciate how easy it was to get up and running with full content filtering and device monitoring. THe ability to add and remove sites from the restriction lists is simple and intuitive. We also use the Teach classroom monitoring product that has made a sweeping difference in the classrooms .

Cons

the cost feels high when first deciding to use the products. but after using for a couple years i cant imagine a better implementation.
