New Feature - Phone and SMS Blocking - Android
*March, 2019 Update
Google now requires that all apps in the Play Store need to disable access to the SMS and Phone controls unless they are specifically apps for Phone and SMS. Netsanity still makes the full version available directly by having our customers download the full Netsanity Agent from the Samsung device: netsanity.net/samsung-release. Please note that there will be additional screens during the setup in addition to the ones that are shown below. If you feel more comfortable with the version available in the Google Play store, please understand that SMS and Phone controls will not be available. You can always use the Netsanity provided version at any time by using the previous link to download from the Samsung device you wish to install the agent on. - Click here for instructions for the Netsanity direct app install steps
Please see feature overview for phone call blocking and SMS (Texting) blocking.
