When will an update be released to fix all the bugs in the FamilyMode app!?

Hey there! What kind of bugs are you experiencing?

I have just started using the FamilyMode app on my teenagers' iphones, and I have two questions/concerns:

First, I'm alarmed to see the previous posts about how easy it is to circumvent Familymode (e.g. by using the phone as a hotspot and then watching youtubes, etc. on laptop linked to the hotspot; turning off the VPN, etc.)  Have these "limitations" been fixed, or is Familymode still that easy to circumvent?

Second, after Bedtime, can my kids still make telephone calls on their iPhones?  I want to block internet/data so they don't watch Netflix, Youtube, etc., after bedtime, but I want them to be able to make telephone calls on their iPhones, in case of emergency, etc.

Thanks for helping clarify the above.

New FamilyMode customer as of 06/29/2020.  The “turn off VPN” vulnerability is still there.  It took my teenager 20 minutes to defeat FamilyMode this way.  I’m searching the forum for solutions and, so far, find only questions about this vulnerability in the app.
