Family Center

An app to secure your mobile phone and turn it into a child-safe sandbox.


How did you come up with the idea?

With more and more digital devices entering the home, connections to the Internet is increasingly within arm’s reach. While all this access is exciting, it also brings up questions about privacy and protection, especially when the kids are involved. That’s why AVG is placing a fresh emphasis on families. They deserve easy-to-use tools that keep the whole household safe and secure.
This was the starting point for our Family Center app. We wanted to create a safe environment for kids to play and watch videos, and in the same time provide a worry free experience for their parents.

What are the key benefits

  • Safe sandbox

  • Stop purchases

  • Kid apps

How does it work?

At its core Family Center is a child proof launcher for Android phones and tablets. We used all the benefits of a launcher to create a safe environment where kids can play their favorite games, watch children friendly movie or use a custom built camera app.

Family Center automatically collects all the child friendly apps on your device by matching them to a predefined list of apps, which have been selected by our team. The app also helps you discover great new kid videos and child friendly apps.
