Questions and Answers

How long will you support Parental Board for?

The Parental Board service will be shutdown in October 2019. Please move over to Boomerang Parental Control as soon as you can.

Why the name change?

Hi, for over 3 years, our team has been hard at work on building a “product/market” fit with Parental Board. This also included creating a sub-brand, Boomerang Parental Board and aligning a safe browser with it, SPIN Safe Browser. Our team has made the decision to put even more energy and focus by combining all Parental Board users into our main product. Going forward, this allows us to better support you, provide an active social media presence and enable a larger community of parents that can share their stories on how a parental control app has helped their families manage and monitor their mobile technology.

Does Boomerang Parental Control have the same functionalities as Parental Board?

Absolutely – every single feature you’ve loved in Parental Board is already in Boomerang and we have added a ton of new improvements in Boomerang Parental Control. 

Does SPIN Safe Browser still work?

Yes, SPIN Safe Browser works perfectly with Boomerang Parental Control. There’s nothing to re-configure.

Google Play says "This app is incompatible with my device" (Android 4.x)

Version 6.01 of Boomerang Parental Control is the last one to support Android 4.x devices (this is also true for Parental Board).

Email our support team to get access to this version which will require you to “side-load” it on your family devices.

Once downloaded, when you tap to open, you may be prompted to enable Installations from unknown sources – enable it for this installation.

Note: this is only required for devices that are running Android 4.x. All newer devices should stay current via our Google Play app listing:

What does “sideloaded” mean?

When referring to Android apps, “sideloading” typically means installing an application package in APK format onto an Android device. Such packages are usually downloaded from websites other than Google play, usually through a computer.
