Changes in Phone and SMS services

Starting January 9, 2019, Google Play implemented restrictions for the use of the SMS and Call permissions necessary for certain functionalities featured in ESET Parental Control. Due to these permissions restrictions, the following features will no longer be available in ESET Parental Control:

Parental messages

SOS button functionality

warning

Regain SMS features

You can restore these features by downloading  and installing the ESET SMS Tool application on your child's device. Features that use SMS services will still be unavailable on the parent's device.
