Questions and Answers

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 an exciting roadmap of features that will be added to Boomerang going forward.

I have a complex configuration for my child devices. How do I transfer to Boomerang?

Perform the following steps from a computer

  1. Login to the Parental Board web dashboard
  2. For each child device, tap on the gearicon
  3. Tap on Export Configuration
  4. Save the configuration in a safe place
  5. Login to the Boomerang web dashboard
  6. For each child device, tap on the gearicon
  7. Tap on Import Configuration
  8. Choose the exported file
  9. Complete by tapping on Upload Configuration

The following settings will need to be reconfigured manually via the Boomerang web dashboard:

  1. Geofences
  2. VIP Numbers and the Check-in Frequency settings will need to be update. These are available in the web dashboard, Parental Board and Boomerang.

Does SPIN Safe Browser still work?

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

How long will you support Parental Board for?

We do not plan to shut down Parental Board any time soon. We will notify all of our current and previous Parental Board users first and make sure they have enough time to move over to Boomerang Parental Control. We will monitor the transition of our users and once we have the majority of them using Boomerang, we will make a decision on a deadline for Parental Board.

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: https://goo.gl/1xhuhq

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.
