  • Great When/If It Works

    The hardware is great and has the features and functions that few other parental control routers will provide. The app that you use to manage the router? Complete garbage. Slow. Buggy. Hangs. Times out. Basically a waste of time. And you would think that each updated release would get better? Nope. It gets worse or stays bad. Good luck. This is a damned if you do damned if you don’t situation.
  • New app is full of bugs and unusable — please revert

    I can no longer manage anything. The software constantly locks or sits in a wait state when any update is made. Please remove the app or fix.
  • Latest app redesign is buggy at best

    I bought the Gryphon tower in 2020. The app was responsive and worked great. Since then, there have been at least 2 redesigns and the app has gotten worse with each one. It looks nice but it times out often. Sometimes I can’t switch profiles the devices are on because the app just won’t cooperate. A reboot (of the tower) to get a different response on the app only works half the time. *Please* fix the app!
  • Terrible app

    The newly updated app is equally clitchy as the old app. UI is better but this trash still doesn’t work well at all. This product can be amazing but please hire someone who actually knows how to program and clean the bugs out of the software.
  • App Times Out CONSTANTLY

    Can’t make any changes to configurations or names of devices, or assign a device to a user because every time I touch something I see the spiral of death and then get a message saying “timed out”. I’m sitting in the same room as the router and I’m on the WiFi, so that doesn’t make sense! This app has consistently gotten worse with time. Will very likely be buying a new router solution, since I bought this for the home bound feature that hasn’t been working for over a year now.
  • No control

    My primary use is to manage screen time for our family. Thing is, I can suspend internet to specific devices, specific users, or suspend it totally but my six year old (much less the older kids) can still watch tv and use whatever device they want. The workarounds to limits and suspended internet are numerous and easy. It’s like a sieve it lets so many things through. I’m sure I could do a bunch of research and refigure my set up and get some improvement but that’s what I bought the thing for! To do it for me! I’m busy and exhausted and just don’t want to keep fighting over screen time. What a fail.
  • Disappointing

    This system could be good, the hardware works fine, but the software has only gotten worse with time. Biggest issues: New interface was implemented prior to updating the documentation on how to use the new interface. The new interface is still just as confusing and convoluted as the old interface. They removed the ability to remotely restart the router, the official support article now tells you to unplug it to restart. Are you kidding me!? It’s slow. I mean amazingly slow even when I am at home on the Wi-Fi network. Every screen shows the old information until you manually refresh, which gives you a false sense of knowledge. Did I mention it’s slow, once you get in the habit of manually refreshing get ready to wait or the app will freeze: “Your request has timed out”. The address blocker by URL is asinine. Cut and paste the URL from my browser and all I ever get is, “Please enter a valid URL” 🤦‍♂️ I don’t know if there is a better option, but I wish I had tried anything other than this one.
  • Newest update crashes upon opening

    Was working fine until newest update. Now I can’t open the program because it crashes while loading.
  • Used to work better

    This app used to work ok (still would prefer a web interface but you HAVE to use the app) but since version 5 it logs me out every time, and takes about 1-2 minutes to “fetch some data” before letting me suspend internet for the night. My wife and I both have this app and I used to get notified if her phone was surreptitiously used to change settings (because my kid is a hacker) but that no longer happens. Contacting support is a black hole that goes nowhere, the problems have persisted over a month. I like the Gryphon for what it is, just wish this app worked like it did a month ago.
  • When the app works, it’s great…

    But since the recent update, that’s rare. Having the users on the main screen is great, but the scheduled screen time takes FOREVER to load, meaning you can’t make one-time adjustments to screen time without changing the whole schedule manually. When I say it takes forever, I mean often it never loads at all. You can exit the app, kill it, move to other areas in the app, do anything you can think of to make it figure itself out and load the schedule and it still won’t. It’s wild how unresponsive it is. In the meantime, little ones who have completed all their chores and have earned their time, can’t get internet because we can’t turn off the scheduled homework or suspended time. So if that could be fixed, we would be so grateful!
