An abuser doesn’t need an app to control the relationship. The person being abused will already be in trouble for ignoring calls or texts without the app. And the phone always has the ability to dial emergency services that the app user can’t remove. They could also factory reset their phone if they needed to and tell the abuser the phone was stolen and then secretly still have the phone for a bit. Or they could buy a secondary pay as you go phone and keep that one a secret. Ultimately it might even be able to help prove abuse or control in a court thus getting divorce or restraining order easier. This app doesn’t create abuse nor does it really make any abuse happening any worse. And as for the apps original purpose good parents can have wild kids and it isn’t a violation to want to know that your kid will answer your calls and txts on the phone you are paying for. Ultimately tho kid can buy a throw away phone and keep it a secret too.
