Multiple Parental Control Software (Mcafee Safe Family, Verizon Smart Family, iPhone Screentime)

I have an 11 and 12 year old. Recently we got them iPhones. As Verizon customers we get Verizon Smart Family as a parental control, iPhone also has ScreenTime as a native Control...and last, as a McAfee Live Safe subscriber I have Safe Family. I have a few questions...

1. Will these three controls conflict with each other if all are active? 

2. Should I only be using one? If so, which would be the preferred app?

Hi @BAllen9674 , 


I do understand that you have three products to choose the best and better parental control.

It depends on the features that these parental control software includes within it. However as the Verizon is you native network provider and if the parental control is preinstalled. It should have more privilege then the other third party application. Even-though iPhone have it own parental control features, it may not have more options like other parental control software's . 

Also having all these together will conflict and may fail in filtering contents.
