Our happy users

“We really like your app, we looked around quite a bit and Time Boss is the best choice we found for managing our kids' screen time. I'll likely upgrade to Pro so we can manage another computer under the same settings/tracking.”
2020, R.Rue, Seattle WA
“The software is extraordinarily simple, works perfectly, is super easy to manage even from a mobile device off the LAN, *works even in a domain environment*, works with multiple users let alone multiple PC's, and is cheap for what you get. Thank you for developing and maintaining this product. It is very effective.”
2023, Scott C. K., MCSE, CDIA+, CDC Systems Engineer, NY
“Thanks for making Time Boss. It has been a huge help to our family!”
2022, Neil T., Massachusetts
“You Guys Rock! I wanted to block access to certain folders while still allowing taskbar shortcuts to run the executables contained within the folders. I have been dispairing since using the Black/White List of Programs to block folder access only blocked the apps within. I was searching out various extra software options until today I was messing around and happened to be scanning your Faq notes... System Protection->Protected Folders to the rescue. Thank you.”
2021, Derek S., California
“I have not looked at the settings options available in Time Boss Pro for three years, as it was good enough for our needs then, but am totally amazed at all the options available now. This software saves Windows 10 Pro admins a lot of time, as you don't have to configure Group Policies for multiple user groups. Just clone a profile and tweak as needed.”
2021, David P. James, USA
“I do love Time Boss and have been telling my friends about it, it's the best parental control software I've found. I love not arguing with my kids about when to log off and the easy ability to give them a little more time if I choose.”

2020, Zheng S, Chicago
“Just thought I'd take a few minutes to say what a great bit of software Time Boss is. My nephew has been addicted to counter strike for a while now, and it was starting to effect his school work (too tired to concentrate in class I think). I've found Time Boss to be the perfect solution, does exactly what it says on the tin, plus is so easy to install and setup. Not sure ma nephew is too happy but he's getting used to the cut off time and we've already seen an improvement in the school work. Easily the best £30 I could have spent on sorting the problem. So many thanks!”
2015, Simon O., UK
“First of all you guys make a fantastic product. It keeps me from becoming addicted to my games!”
2017, Bryce M., USA
“This software seems promising as my son has broken Microsoft Family Safety, Qustodio...etc. but so far this software seems to be able to limit his computer use time which is what I'm mostly after. Thank you for your assistance!”
2018, John L, USA
“The program itself is brilliant and nothing else I've tried even remotely comes near to the features you've managed to pack into this! Its the right level of advanced control I wanted as many other programs try to oversimplify things (Microsoft family safety for eg) which ends up in me loosing key control elements...”
2017, Kartik P, United Kingdom
“Great product by the way. I actually use it for myself and my wife holds the password to the timeboss controls. it's been absolutely invaluable to prevent endless internet/computer time sucking my life away. Thanks for the great product!”
2016, K.Ramesh, USA
